  • Corvette Welcome Package

    Spoke to the Corvette concierge recently to inquire on the "Welcome" package. I was told the the kits for customers who bought Corvettes in Rapid Blue or Elkhart Lake Blue were on backorder but was assured that I would receive the package as soon as they became available. I took possession of my 2021 Rapid Blue C8 on 12/24/2020... just a few days short of it becoming 6 months ago! I was told that normally the pkg arrives 45 to 60 days after the purchase.

    Anyone else with the same color cars having the same issue?

      I suspect these models are made in Asia, and are caught up in the worldwide shipping issues.

            They are coming. We just do not know when. But we have Harlan’s word, in fact also in writing, that every 2020 and 2021 sold within the U.S. will get one. His word is more than good enough to me.
            Z06 coming late this summer: Hypersonic Gray HTC, two tone blue interior, complete high wing/aero package. CCB’s, with every piece of visible carbon fiber available to us. Lifetime, annual contributors, and 24 year members of National Corvette Museum. Home is the beautiful Pacific Northwest.

                  I have not received my welcome kit. I have a 2020 Arctic White Stingray and I took delivery November 2020. Just called the Concierge and they are following up on getting one sent. I really want my kit in case this car ends up being a collectable - Yes I am a obsessed Corvette fan! LOL We fussed about the car taking so long and now we want our toy that we can look at without having to walk to the garage! We are kids aren't we! Now let's never grow up!

                    took possession 5 months ago. Nothing.

                    On the positive side, I'm all set to go out west in the fall. Spring Mountain discount > speed shape model
                    2021 Red Mist HTC / Z51 /Mag Ride / Yellow Calipers / C-Flash Mirrors and Wing / Front Lift / Black 3LT / CF Interior Trim / Yellow Belts and Stitching

                    Atomic Orange C6. Plenty of engine and suspension mods. Gone, but not forgotten

                          You don't need the welcome kit to schedule with Ron Fellows, I believe all you need is your VIN number. I wouldn't wait to receive that welcome kit.
                          2LT Coupe, Z51, Elkhart Lake Blue, GT2 seats, Edge Red Calipers and engine cover, Mag Ride, Front Lift, High Wing spoiler, R8C, American Hydrocarbon 5VM kit, museum delivery.

                          2000 status 5/1, 3000 on 5/4, 3300 on 8/4, 3400 on 8/11, #18 off the line on 8/23, delivered 9/10.

                          Well worth the wait, the car is amazing!

                            That is correct. Just have your VIN handy and give them a call to schedule your class. There was a C8 Owner’s School brochure/flier in the packet with my owner’s manual too.
