    So, do the math for us John. Retooling, training all that good stuff. First production C8 when?

      Notice that Dave said, “at least” though August. That suggests as I have heard, that there is still a good possibility for C7 production through part, maybe even all of September. Then two months of factory re-tooling, massively slow ramp up of new C8 (initial C7’s were only build at the beginning of a rate of one per hour), then slowly increasing that rate. Then factor in a two week always Christmas/New Years time off, then a one month quality control hold. All this leads me to my belief is that IF we are lucky, the very first ones would arrive at the dealership in mid to late January (and those are for dealerships both located close to the plant AND which have massive allocation). For those living on the west coast like me, add in three more weeks for train travel time.

      As I posted earlier, even though I am now more than 4 years and 4 months since I placed my deposit, and placed it with a top dealer who has massive allocation, my best guess on mine arriving at our courtesy dealer in Oregon woudl be Valentines Day (and that could well be a couple of weeks optimistic).

      Every time I post this schedule, many then post that they are expecting first production months earlier. However, I am just calling as you asked me to, e.g., the way I see it.

        Cool..when the c8 is ready for early deliveries in mid February, the only question is why would gm list this as a 2020 model and not just create this vehicle as a 2021 model year...?

        better residuals for those that eventually trade in their c8 z51 s for the upcoming c8 z06 the following year or two...

        i believe any prodiction vehicle sold after january 21 2020 can be listed as a model year 2021 according to government regulations...

        by my calculations may for the rest of us ...

              But then there would be no 2020 model. Maybe they do not want a lapse in production years.
              There is a madness to my method!

                GM took a lot of flack when the 1983 was delayed, then become not one at all. For GM to miss a full production year, e.g., not having a 2020 Corvette, would IMO subject the company to claims, “you sure do not have your act together,” or worse.

                However, GM knows a lot more than I do.
