            The transmission is made in Canada correct?

              Not yet. Now some small parts for it are made in Mexico but the majority and its assemblage is in Michigan. They are building a new factory in Canada that among other items, it will manufacture DCT’s.

                Corvette production will be halted next week. Here's why

                Kalea Hall
                The Detroit News

                Detroit — Production of the 2021 Chevrolet Corvette Stringray will be down next week as General Motors Co. battles a supply constraint, the automaker confirmed Wednesday.

                The Bowling Green, Kentucky, plant that makes the sports car has already faced down time this year because of a supply constraint that isn't related to a global shortage of semiconductors. The plant is now expected to be down another week from March 1 to March 5 due to a transmission parts supply issue.It was also down the weeks of Feb. 1 and Feb. 8 for the same issue.

                "Our supply chain, manufacturing and engineering teams are working closely with our supply base to mitigate any further impact on production, and we expect the plant to resume normal operations on Monday, March 8," GM spokesman David Barnas said in a statement to The Detroit News.

                Meanwhile, GM and other automakers are battling a semiconductor supply shortage that has curbed production of various models. The Detroit automaker has said its goal is to protect its "most popular and in-demand products, including full-size trucks and SUVs and Corvettes for our customers."

                Since early February, GM halted production through mid-March at the Fairfax, Kansas, plant where the Cadillac XT4 and the Chevrolet Malibu are built, the CAMI plant in Ontario where the Chevrolet Equinox is built, and the San Luis Potosi plant in Mexico where the Equinox, the Chevrolet Trax and the GMC Terrain SUVs are built.

                GM isn't alone. Ford Motor Co., after having to reduce production at some of its F-150 plants previously, will shut down its Oakville Assembly Complex in Ontario where the Ford Edge and Lincoln Nautilus are built next week because of the shortage.

                Overall, analysts from the IHS Markit research firm expect the semiconductor shortage to cost the industry nearly 1 million units of production in the first quarter. The issue is expected to hit bottom at the end of March, but the supply will remain tight into the third quarter, IHS says.

                President Joe Biden issued an executive order Wednesday for a review of U.S. supply chains with a focus on key sectors affecting the U.S. auto industry, including semiconductor manufacturing, high-capacity batteries used in electric vehicles and rare earth minerals.

                  Maybe. The new Canada plant is supposed to open "1st quarter 2021." Until then, the DCT is manufactured by Tremec in Michigan. Don't know if the new plant has come online yet or not.

                  https://www.autoevolution.com/news/c...nt-151435.html

                  https://www.corvetteblogger.com/2020...n-autoworkers/

                  One article indicates Tremec will stop making it, the other implies both factories will remain open. My guess is that the Canadian plant will build the DCT for the Stingray, while the Tremec plant will build the uprated version for the Z06.

                  The website for the St. Catherine's powertrain plant doesn't list the DCT as one of their products yet:

                    Oh, and as far as the delay goes. At this point, all I can do is say I'll get it when I get it. At least I'm at 3000, so I'm pretty confident I'll get a 2021.

                          Dang. I had a slim chance of an August delivery. Now I hope I get a 21 in September.

                            Sounds like 2021 will have different issues for C8 production but the result will be the same for those waiting for their car. Yoyo expectations and emotions on when you will get your car. All I can say is that the car will make you smile when it finally arrives.
