  • Are they still sending out speed shape models?

    I received my C8 on October 8 (over 6 months ago) and have not received one of the speed shape models that were sent to early buyers. Are they still sending them to new owners? How long did it typically take from delivery to the time the model came?

    Or maybe it is because I don't have a popular color -- I have a yellow HTC. Any yellow owners get one? How about HTC owners? And are the HTC models any different?

    I got my torch red HTC in december and still didn't get a model yet.

      I took delivery of my Zeus Coupe 10/2/20 and received the model early March.
      '64 Silver Grey Coupe (custom paint)- still our favorite
      '13 White/Blue Diamond 427 60th roadster - favorite late model
      Several others including two C7's

      '20... Zeus Bronze Coupe, 2LT, GT2 seats, Natural two tone, Body color accents, Pewter wheels- 10/1/20😀 GAME CHANGER

        YES, the HTC model is an HTC, and different from the coupe. See photos below.

        I have a yellow HTC delivered Nov. 2020.

        I have not seen anyone on any of the various vette forums reporting receiving a yellow coupe/HTC yet.

        This is what I am expecting to receive hopefully in the next 2 years or so.
        (The sad thing is that people who sold are receiving these long after they got rid of their C8.)

          I also took delivery of my 2020 HTC in early October last year and similarly, don't have my "gift package" yet. I was told my color (Blade Silver) was on backorder. Perhaps the same with Accelerate Yellow? Likely COVID is causing some of the manufacturing delays. But hang in there; I'm told we WILL see it in the mail, as will all 2021 C8 buyers.

            Harlan said in an interview a few weeks ago that they were going to send out the models for 2021 buyers, which implies 2020 buyers will also still get them. I read somewhere that there was a production problem with the boxes for the HTC models (which are apparently different than the coupe boxes?) but that wouldn't explain why coupe owners haven't gotten them in quite a while. Probably something else we can blame on world-wide supply chain problems. There may be an entire container full of them sitting off the coast of California waiting to be unloaded.

              As many have noted, timing is wonky. I expect it to stay that way with long gaps for different colors. However I personally confirmed with Harlan that all U.S. buyers, 2020 AND 2021’s will be getting one at some point.

                  Canadians started receiving them as well some time ago.

                    Thanks carbuff for that very good news (at least to me).

                        Not including me unfortunately. My C8 coupe arrived May 2020, model still MIA. Granted, it is an unusual color -- Torch Red.

                        Oh well, the real thing is supplying me more grins than the model would.

                          I heard on one of the forums, that if you are on the GM "do not market to me list", you will NOT get one. Not sure if that is true or not, as nobody else confirmed it.

                            I picked up my C8 Nov 19th (built Nov 9th) & received model Jan 9th. I remember getting a card in the mail before it came saying to expect something (think it said welcome gift/package) from GM
                            🤞🏼Best to those waiting, they are cool!
