BEST C8 Corvette Z06 News

This is great news as they are keeping with the TPWs (Target Production Week) in November they have been providing with the first 300+ allocations they gave out to the selected few 3,000 dealers who received them.

Of course the first C8 Corvette Z06 will be going to Rick Hendrick as he donated and bid millions of dollars to Charity at Barrett Jackson for the first coupe and first C8 Corvette Z06 convertible.

Also, Chevrolet has told dealers they will be starting to provide allocations in November vs. the January 2023 start date of ordering again after they gave out the first 300+ allocations in August of 2022.

There has been some confusion because in the notice to dealers they use the verbiage “shipments” vs. allocations but many dealers have confirmed that’s what they mean when they say that.

Also, in this video by Records Rebuilds who is one of the YouTubers that have had quality, honest, information he shares more C8 Corvette Z06 updates and his update with Ciocca Corvette and his concern with the lower rated Torque.

He mentioned how Ciocca Corvette received allocations separate from the “list” and we heard they received 32 allocations in August when GM first gave out the 300+ allocations or so to Chevy Dealers.  They have 18 cars at 3000 status and have 10 cars at 3100 status. They have 4 cars at 3300 which means the C8 Z06 is scheduled for production 3 cars at 3400 status and they are pulling parts to build the C8 Z06. They have 7 cars at 3800 status and those cars are built already and waiting quality control from Chevrolet.

For some reason he mentions this doesn’t effect the list of 5,000 plus people that have given Ciocca Corvette $5,000 deposits since these were considered some type of “special” allocation vs all the people waiting on their list.

C8 Z06 Corvette news has been scarce but today we get hit with multiple major updates. This is some of the best Z06 information released so far. Check out todays update covering all the leaked and official information.

In this video above it shows the LT7 is possibly coming as well that is rumored to possibly be part of the new Hybrid Electric C8 Corvette but it might be for the C8 ZR1 or “Zora”

As you will see here in this video as well Trevor Thompkins the Car, Performance and Motorsports Communications (General Motors PR guy) has said that 2023 Corvette Z06 orders will resume in November 2022 or this month.
