  • C8 Pricing Information


    Does anyone have any idea when we will be seeing pricing information on the C8 based on the premise that the car will debut at NAIAS 01/2019?
    Going back to the C7, “MKenM” gave us the “2014 RPO and Pricing” excel spreadsheet on 04/26/13.

    Was it really that early??? I guess you're right because I recall waiting for the 'vert' pricing since that's what I had a place in line for. As I recall the pricing was either right after or concurrent with the ordering information. That's usually when the dealers get serious about 'harvesting' all those deposits.

    If they follow the same pattern, I'm guessing that by May of 2019 there will be a lot of fall out from those expecting a $65K ME and I'll be able to move up in line.....

      Where someone is now on a dealer’s ME priority list is going to be very different from where they are ordering day (with a few obvious exceptions of course). As one extremely-large-allocation dealer told me, the drop of rate is always considerable due to so many factors. Before getting into those, starting with the ME’s looks alone, even if it is drop dead gorgeous in the minds of most, there are some who once they see it, will not like it. And of course there are also the the very obvious factors, issues of health, job loss, the car’s price, money needed for a business expansion becoming a higher priority over buying another Corvette, divorce, and many other unforeseen life circumstances. How’s one I personally know, a person who was beyond gung-ho to get his C7, only to get promoted and send to a company’s overseas office just a couple of weeks before he was to place his order. In short, priority of order list drop off rates could easily exceed 40% for the ME, i.e., a person who was 20th in line at a dealership to get an ME, could be # 12 at the time when the first orders go in.

      And as toold2race asked, how many above you on the dealership’s priority list will not compromise on getting the HT convertible version? And consequently if the common belief that coupes will be made first, HT’s delayed by a few months or longer, those only accepting a HT, would singiciantly drop down the ordering priroity list, while coupe buyers would move up.

      Or how about all those who are sure that GM will have a manual trans in the ME, but if the majority opinions’ are right that only a DCT would be offered on the ME, how many of those will instead get a 2020 FE— again greatly changing the priorities of orders on dealers’ ME initial ordering list.

      One last example, and why even though I was #56 on Kerbeck’s priority list for the C6 Z06, I got the first Museum Delivery of that model in the country and became the first person to own and drive one in the PNW. Why, because I saw the lousy polishing jobs on the Z06’s show car’s aluminum wheels, and at the last minute I consequently changed my order to chrome wheels, and jumped ahead of literally 40+ others in line at Kerbeck who had been ahead of me and stuck with their getting polished wheels — for GM, when they got their first supplier batch of polished aluminum wheels, rejected every wheel in that batch.

      In short, while we think we know what and when our ME could be coming, there are so many variables/factors we yet do not begin to have a clue about.

          I think you are spot on JBsC6. That would be the exact guess I would make. As you earlier noted, C7 pricing was on April 26th (at the BASH that year), and the first customer delivery (the day after Rick Henrick got his) was September 20, 2013.
