I got a chance to review and drive one of the most ridiculous C8 Corvettes on the planet. Listen to the custom Procharger scream right behind my head as I rip down the streets in this one of a kind beast. Every detail has been thought of and it came together beautifully. Would you consider Procharging your hot rod? Procharger design was done by Westbrookbranding.com
In this video Brink of Speed covers the new 2023 Stingray and Corvette Z06 manuals that are available online, Z06 Suspension, as well as new production dates in May with a delay.
2023 C8 Corvette NEW Production Start Date! Plus MUCH more! Ladies and gentlemen, today I’m bringing you the latest 2023 C8 Corvette Stingray & Z06 news. We now know the exact 2023 Stingray production start date, constraints, and delays.
It took well over a month for the Air Ride air bag suspension to work with the magnetic ride control and that was a great stock option that they lost going with an air bagged approach. Also, they wish they had black rivets vs stainless steel rivets with the Pandem Widebody kit.
It took him over a year to get his Convertible C8 Corvette but he had ordered his wheels and widebody kit ahead of time. He owns Fitment Industries and they provide wheels and tires for all types of cars including the C8 Corvette.
They also added a Borla exhaust to their C8 Corvette Widebody and talk about why they can’t sell this C8 Corvette.
You will notice in the video when he takes the C8 out for a drive the air lift air bag suspension causes lift system warning check engine lights. Even with it’s quirks he thinks its the best value for the money, its fun, and his wife really likes it and drives it more then his supercars.
Why no one wants to drive this Pandem C8?
Our Pandem Corvette C8 Convertible is one of the most unique vehicles we have, however no one drives it! After buying it new in February 2021 it currently sits with just over 1,000 miles. Should we sell this thing? or hold onto it? Let us know below!
In this video from Brink of Speed on YouTube you can see the all new 2022 GMC Hummer EV drag race his 2020 C8 Corvette.
The Electric Hummer is very close to launching as fast as the C8 Corvette but then comes on strong after about 60 feet and would just take off from there being 1000 horsepower but it’s over 9000 pounds.

In this video by Rick Corvette Conti in Ohio he goes over the recent 2023 C8 Corvette order constraints and shows his frustrations with this car. There is so much demand and with chip shortage and magnetic ride control supply issues the production still can’t keep up.
Chevy dealers like the one Rick use to work at are use to corvettes on the lot with mark downs like the C7s started getting discounted up to the year prior to the C8 Corvette unveil. Now customers if they could would just order a C8 Corvette right through GM or Chevrolet.com as people do on Tesla.com and with ordering a Tesla.
You can tell in Rick’s video that there really is no point to a Chevy sales person when they have no cars to sell. If Chevrolet.com opened up ordering directly like Tesla.com they would eliminate the need to ask sales people at these franchise dealers what’s happening with their cars and orders. Most dealers make their profit on the service centers so maybe Franchise dealers will become just that eventually.
2023 CORVETTE ORDER / CONSTRAINT UPDATE APRIL 2022
In this video by Wimya on YouTube you can see what a disaster it is to order a Corvette C8. He waited almost two years now and still doesn’t have a C8 Corvette.
This is how much demand there is as well as how much Chevy dealers are behind on ordering and keeping up with the demand. The production in Bowling Green has stopped several times for different reasons including supply chain issues that are now effecting the launch of the new 2023 C8 Corvette Z06.
This is pretty common with Chevy dealers and General Motors production of the Corvette C8 they are either taking over a year to get people their cars or marking them up. If you don’t want to wait this long to order one at MSRP you can try using sites like Cars.com or Car Gurus and find a used one marked up in your area.
2023 C8 Corvette Delivery Day (Update 23 Months later)
In this video by Brink of Speed on YouTube he visits Corvette World again and covers C8 Corvette inventory with C8 Corvette prices dropping.
Towards the end of the video is where Robert from Corvette World mentions they are dropping the prices of 15 of the corvettes shown at the time of this video and having a March end sale.
We have covered Corvette C8 pricing from the start and although the base model Corvette C8 Stingray unveiled at a $59995 base price the current base price of a 2023 C8 Corvette as of March 20222 is $63k now.
Also, the demand for the Corvette C8 has not stopped if anything its stronger than ever and Corvette C8s are priced above MSRP if you don’t have a chance to get one from a dealer which many still have 1-2 year waits for the C8 Corvette.
The C8 Corvette Z06 is suppose to come out in the Summer of 2022 and that pricing hasn’t been released yet but is rumored to start in the $87k-92k range. Current inflation and supply chain issues continue to hold that car up for pricing and production.
In this video by Premium Auto Styling in Riverside, CA they show how they did the Inozetek Metallic Midnight Green Wrap for Sabrina Leamon the girlfriend of TJ Hunt.
We have covered TJ Hunt’s C8 Corvette widebody on our site several times you can see here and here and it completed here. However, it was Sabrina’s turn to build her C8 Corvette that she purchased from West Coast Exotics also in California where they are from and live.
What do you think of this Inozetek Metallic Midnight Green wrap with the black reflective “Tron” like pinstripes? OR Do you like the Inozetek Metallic Racing Green better with none of the “Tron” reflective striping?
Amazing Story About Sabrina Leamon May God Keep Blessing her, TJ Hunt and her family.

In this video by Brink of Speed you will see him call Chevy Dealers to see how long the process is to order a C8 Corvette or a C8 Corvette Z06.
There is at least one Chevy Dealer that said they can get a Corvette Stingray in 6-8 months. Also, you will hear Chevrolet dealers saying they will sell C8 Corvette at MSRP, “market rate” and marked up.
Leave a comment below to share what you think of this video and the current waits for C8 Corvette. One of the dealers was already done with 2023 C8 Corvette Stingray ordering.
The amazing part of the video is the C8 Corvette demand for both stingray and the C8 Z06 is alive and well with most of the dealers not being able to get you one for at least 12 months and the C8 Z06 having lists that will last years unless there is massive increases in production from years past.
He calls Ciocca Corvette, Macmulkin, Criswell, Bachman, and finally Holiday Chevrolet. Most of these dealers are the top Chevy dealers in the country.
You will notice every call was very professional, thorough, and the Chevrolet Dealer sales people were fantastic in answering Mike’s questions.
