C8 Corvette Allocation Update for September 2021 (Dealer Perspective)

In this video from “I Sell Corvettes” Ron Shinault with Weber Chevrolet in Columbia, IL  covers his current C8 Corvette allocation and provides an update to his July 22nd 2022 C8 Corvette Allocation videos.

He was pleasantly surprised with 4 allocations and thinks this a great sign to come since he is a smaller dealer especially with corvette sales.

He also mentioned they will not make a list for the C8 Z06 because he doesn’t think they would be able to fulfill the orders within the first one or two years and doesn’t want to get peoples hopes up.

Lastly, he discusses he has a small list for the electric Corvette C8 the “E-Ray” that has been seen testing with the Acura NSX but again that car isn’t even announced and Chevy didn’t say they will be sharing any information about it at the C8 Z06 reveal at the end of October.

And I sell Corvettes Response about 2022 C8 Corvettes

Gateway Chevrolet in Avondale, AZ Marks Up C8 Corvette $50k

Check out this video we found on YouTube where a Chevrolet Dealer has a C8 Corvette marked up $50,000 for sale.

The dealer is Gateway Chevrolet in Avondale, Arizona just outside of Downtown Phoenix to the west of Phoenix, AZ

This is the highest C8 Corvette mark up we have seen so far. When they first started hitting Chevy Dealership lots they were being marked up $2k, $5k, $10k, $20k and even $30k but $50k takes the cake.

Another Chevy Dealership Service Technician Going Over 100MPH

A few months ago we posted an update to a C8 Corvette customer showing a Chevy Dealership service technician going over 100MPH in his car.

And now another Chevy Dealership service tech was caught on the C8 Corvette PDR (performance data recorder) going over 140MPH cutting in and out of traffic and reckless driving with a customer car as well.

What do you guys think? What would you do if this was your C8 Corvette that was raced on the highway over 140MPH after bringing it in for service and an engine knock?

Update: It looks like the video was removed or taken down because the owner was happy with what the dealer offered him which sounds like they agreed to an extended warranty. Per reddit

Check out this video from I Sell Corvettes YouTuber and Chevy salesperson as he provides the latest C8 Corvette news about Chevy dealers getting their 2022 C8 Corvette allocations.

Per his video description about 2022 C8 Corvette Allocations and C8 Corvette News

We received the July Cycle 2 consensus this morning letting us know how many Corvettes we can order next week for our first 2022 C8 models. I created some confusion it seems on the forum so I wanted to give my take on why I believe my expectations vs what I received differed from other larger dealers.

Ciocca Dealerships Group Buys Kerbeck Chevrolet Now Ciocca Corvette

We first heard about Ciocca Dealerships Group buying Kerbeck Chevrolet on Matthew Beaver’s Instagram story over the weekend.  Matt Beaver works for a competitor Chevrolet dealer in the area Whitmoyer Chevrolet.

This is big news because Kerbeck Chevrolet has been the number one selling corvette dealer in the United States based in Atlantic City, NJ.

Ciocca Corvette of Atlantic City

The new store will be called Ciocca Corvette of Atlantic City so it looks like they still have a Corvette Sales focus why would they not.

Not sure how this effects any C8 Corvette lists last time we tried to get on their C8 Corvette Z06 list they didn’t even have one or wouldn’t take our name down but 4 other stores have, two of which took a deposit.
