  • C8’s Last ‘21 TPW For These Three Colors Is 7/19: Sebring, Zeus and Shadow

    Bye Sebring, Zeus and Shadow C8 Colors.

    We got this from a confidential birdie yet properly waited for public sharing, this time thanks and publicly initiated by the Corvette Action Center.

    As IMO it will be unlikely that GM will just continue without three colors for a long time, in post # 12 the question of when the 2022’s start is raised.

    Not surprised. GM changes colors every year, and sometimes in mid-year. DSOM went away half-way through the 2016 model year. I wouldn't be surprised to see AYM or ZB go away, because they sold in very small numbers in 2020. Or perhaps Shadow Gray, since GM seem to change their gray more frequently than some people change their underwear.

    I'll only care if they replace Sebring Orange with Daytona Sunrise Orange Metallic. Then I'll be mad I missed out on it. But still happy with Red Mist. Including the C8, 6 of my last 7 cars have been some shade of red, so you might conclude I like red.

      Surprise me with alternatives to the exterior black trim. For example a dark blue trim with the Rapid Blue car. But there must be a technical of cost basis for black only option.

      -----------------
      The yellow became available late. I have not seen a yellow car yet. So I could never have picked it. Can't pick without first seeing it. Same thing with Rapid Blue . Wanted it provisionally , but went with Torch Red, since I had not eye-balled Rapid Blue. On my cutoff date I had not seen the HTC, so I went with the coup.

      When I finally saw a Rapid Blue HTC with blue interior , I wanted to switch but it was too late. But my sales person assured me that I would be perfectly pleased with Torch Red and LT2 bright Red interior. I am.

        In my opinion, there is way too much 'gray' in the world. I wouldn't miss any shades of it. Hope they go with some more exotic bright colors.... even if they are at a premium cost wise.....

          while I know many like the yellow... I really yearn for the more corvette racing variety of yellow.

          and yeah John... what tease!

            Absolutely right on!!!

            In between snow storms here in the North East so took Sunshine out to lunch at Wendy’s (free senior drinks if you’re not aware).

              What about a Deep Purple ? I'm surprised a youtuber hasn't pinstriped all the lines on the C8 yet.

                Only if orange pinstripes are mandatory.

                  That means I think that the 2022 model year is going to start production sometime in September if not sooner.

                    Breaking this down for those new to this. For those whose orders are already in/accepted in those three colors, nothing has changed. For those who receive allocations tomorrow, or in March and April and May, you will still be able to order these three colors.

                    However if your order is not status 3000 for those above dates for those colors, you will not be able to get your C8 orders accepted in those colors past the specific dates.

                      This brings us to the corollary questions we started to discuss elsewhere, what will the three replacement new colors be? We hope they are announced at the April 20-22 NCM Bash, as well as definitive information as to when the remaining nine (9), 2021 colors will end and 2022 production will start.

                      Again what we yet do not know is whether the remaining nine colors might continue on through August, September, or even later times? My guess, strictly that, is that the last 2021 production date would be no later than Sept 17th, with the start of 2022 production being around October 4th.

                        While I'm not shocked about them, it's sad to see the orange and gray go. I'm GUESSING that they will replace the gray with some other dark gray, as that's been the M.O. over the years.
                        ZB - when my wife and I saw it, we said back before it ever started that it would be a 1-2 year only color, as it's so unique.

                        Let the bets begin.

                          What might be the three new colors:

                          My hopes are:

                          *The gray of the # 4 C8.R:

                          * A return to Millennium Yellow or Velocity Yellow or some other yellow that is bright, bold but without green (BTW the # 3 C8.R is not AY);

                          *Something else BOLD!

                            The fact that three specific colors were mentioned as going away, that would leave the remaining nine as being 2022 colors:

                            Arctic White
                            Black
                            Elkhart Lake Blue
                            Accelerate Yellow
                            Ceramic Matrix
                            Torch Red
                            Red Mist
                            Silver Flare
                            Rapid Blue

                            With those nine awaiting who would be their brother and sister colors.....?

                              I am suprised that 1970's tan made it to 2021 and that brighter colors like Mclaren are not offered.
