In this video Speed Phenom shares his insights on trying to order a 2023 C8 Corvette Z06 and what he discovered.
- C8 Z06 Corvette is still not ready
- Chevy halted production on all C8 Corvettes this month for another week at least via Automotive News
- There are many parts rumored not to be available like magnetic ride control due to supply chain issues
- Chevrolet still has not released C8 Corvette Z06 pricing on the base model 2023 Corvette C8 stingray pricing which will start now at $63,195 MSRP
What it sounds like is the C8 Corvette Z06 will be delayed further especially since there are still supply chain issues and they still haven’t released pricing.
The C8 Corvette demand has not waned and if anything it has become worse since there are people on waiting lists for the C8 z06 with one dealer that have 6000 plus people. Also, with hand built engines and the history of the C8 Z06 not being mass produced as much as the base model Corvette C8 there are going to be a lot of frustrated people.
This launch of the Mid Engine Corvette has been historic and its the most popular corvette every built. Its disappointing there has been a lot of things out of Chevrolet and General Motors hands when it comes to supply chain issues that continue to persist. Not to mention their Bowling Green Kentucky corvette production factory being hit with a tornado, UAW strikes and of course the pandemic we faced the first two years of the production of the C8 Corvette.
