2023 Corvette Z06 Details WE STILL DON’T Know

They still didn’t provide production or release dates, pricing (most likely $85-$95k to start), lists and mark up information. We have heard dealers already with 1000+ people on their lists and will be marking them up again anywhere from $10-50k.

Other things they didn’t mention was top speed and weight (updated here, 3450 with the Z07 full carbon fiber/wheels). So our guess is either its the same or not impressive enough to share.

This was recently discussed here in a YouTube video about how the C8 Z06 Production will not be limited which again is speculation and nothing official from General Motors or Chevrolet.
