Paragon Performance C8 Corvette Track Prep Package!

Check out this video from Paragon Performance where they cover all the items they have available they personally used on their own C8 Corvette for the track.

We have been covering the Paragon Performance C8 aftermarket site since they launched back in October 2020 when we launched this C8 Corvette Blog too. We have also bought many parts from them for our Chalk Grey C8 Corvette including axels, taillight tint vinyl, and Girodisc rotors with Carbotech brake pads which really help if you have a C8 Corvette with squealing brakes.

Also, since we changed out our C8 Corvette wheels from Vossen Wheels to BC Forged Wheels we are going to lower our C8 even more with their lowering springs to compliment the collars we got from Cicio Performance before they made them as well.

Chevrolet Just Revealed the 2023 C8 Corvette Before the REVEAL???

Chevrolet just revealed the 2023 C8 Corvette Z06 BASE model on Twitter and Instagram and we are seeing mixed messages from potential customers and Corvette fans online.

Most C8 Corvette owners like it but aren’t “wowed” especially the C8 Corvette owners that already have heavily modified their current C8 Corvettes with wheels, exhausts, lowering springs ect…

Also, Chevrolet is really teasing the new C8 Z06 since we all know from the Nurburgring videos of the C8 Z06 that there are going to be variants and a track focused C8 Z06 with a bird like wing with a Z07 package.

It will be interesting to see what happens on October 26th when we get to see every C8 Z06 variant and option including the details of the flat plane crank engine, C8 Z06 convertible, performance numbers, C8 Z06 colors, and possible weight reduction with a magnesium DCT.

C8 Corvette Stingray Prices FINALLY Coming Back Down?

Check out this video from Cars, Costs and Technology on his take on C8 Corvette Pricing. Do you think he is right and the pricing will come down?

He does say its going to hold it’s value and thinks it will stay above what you paid for it but thinks the 25-30k mark ups are going to go away. Funny enough we posted about the C8 Z06 is going to be marked up as researched from us personally and by one of Speed Phenom’s videos. And most dealers have lists of over 1000 people wanted a C8 Z06 and again is going to be hard to get and marked up.

Even in the last month or so in 2021 there are still dealers marking up the C8 Corvette at 50k as shown here too. And recently a 25,000 mile C8 Corvette that was tracked hard sold for $85k at Carmax which is still insane especially with that high of miles in such a short period of time of less than 2 years.

So not really sure how much the C8 Corvette pricing will come down if at all in the next year since its going to be hard to get a C8 Z06 and the production levels of the C8 Corvette is still a lot lower than the C7 Corvettes. And C7 Corvettes are still selling for high prices with the used car market, inflation, strike, plant closures, and chip shortages. There really hasn’t been any sign from Chevy or General Motors they are going to double production. And the C8 Z06 is just going to create even more buzz for the brand and people wanting to get a C8 Corvette even if they can’t get the C8 Z06.

What do you think will happen to the C8 Corvette Pricing? Leave a comment

Check out this video from Cars, Costs, and Technology where he covers the C8 Corvette production numbers from 2020 and 2021 so far and compares them to the C7 Corvette production numbers.

As you will see thanks to the chip shortage, UAW strike, and Covid the C8 Corvette production numbers are down vs. C7 Corvette typical production.

  • 2020 there were 20,368 C8 Corvettes produced

The first year of the C7 Corvette in 2014 there were 37,288 C7 Corvettes produced which is only 9,000 units less then both 2020 and 2021 C8 Corvette production combined.

The Corvette C8 Market is Cracking? C8 Corvette Price Data

Check out this video from Fourwheel Trader as he provides car depreciation analysis on many types of popular cars.

In this video he covers the still top selling and leader in July of 2021 C8 Corvette. We haven’t noticed that much cracking since the C8 is still hard to get and in most cases 12-18 months to get one in your hands when ordering as the lists are so big with Chevy dealers across the country.

The one thing that might slow it down is when Chevrolet announces the production dates on the new C8 Z06 on October 26th, 2021.

Per his video description of C8 Corvette Prices

Buying a Corvette C8? Then this is the video to watch. In this depreciation and buying guide of the Corvette C8 I will show you how much Corvette prices changed in the last three months and what the current premiums are. Furthermore, I will show that we might be at the beginning of the end for the c8 price premiums. You can contact me at fourwheeltrader@gmail.com if you would like a personalized analysis. Following high demand and limited supply, Corvette C8 prices skyrocketed during last year. This uptrend continued during the last three months as the median price point increased even further by 4%. However, as this video will show you, the first signs of a trend change start to appear. First, we can observe that the upward price trend in the used car market came to an end. Used car prices didn’t increase during the last three months. Moreover, we can already see some price decreases at a more granular level. All of this is caused by an increase in used car supply and median mileage. Second, we can see that the price variation starts to decrease. Prices are less extreme and outliers are priced closer to the rest of the market. This usually signals that the market decided on the price. All of this fits within in the larger market trends. Wholesale prices continued to decrease during July and the average time in takes to sell a used car bottomed out. Yet, it’s unlikely that the C8 market will crash. It’s still the most popular car of the US and it’s sales numbers are miles ahead of the competition. Therefore, it’s more likely that prices will adjust gradually. Note that all the prices are advertised prices.
