  • POLL: 2019 End FE’s Run

    Do you think that the C7 generation will be the second shortest one ever, stopping at the end of the 2019 model year.

    We are starting to get more and more posts of members saying they believe that the 2019 is the end of the front engined Corvette, e.g., if true, bye, bye C7’s when the 2019 production run is over. One noted industry forecaster, Auto Forecast Solutions is reported to have printed in their material, that production for the C7 ends next August (2019). Even GM Authority article posts this info as a “rumor.”

    Let’s talk very few facts first. We only have one, and even it only indirectly/tangentially answers this question; that is a December 11, 2017 memo from GM corporate to those of its dealers who were awarded 2019 ZR1 allocation. That document stated, that 2019 ZR1 production will end “estimated in March, 2019.” GM actually used the word “estimated” in that memo. And as we all know, the ZR1 could end earlier or later than the rest of the 2019 C7 production.

    Even though I am getting a ME next year, trading in our 2015 Z06, if that thought is true, that C7 production is going to end a year from now, that would be sad news for us C7 lovers. I am hoping the C7 continues production — for it is one great Corvette.

    What do you think? Thank you for below posting your reasons for your vote below.

    Options 1 and 3 aren't mutually exclusive. The C7 could continue through 2021, and a new FE begin in 2022.

    I think that any future FE will depend greatly on how well the C8 sells to traditional Corvette buyers compared to people new to Corvettes. If traditional buyers continue to favor an FE design, then I expect GM will do what it can to satisfy them. But I would expect it to be heavily based on the C7, rather than an all-new car. Sort of like the C5 to C6, which many considered a C5.5.

      You are right. Thank you Meyerweb.. Sorry I messed up.

      Did a few word changes to fix it, and as the poll votes were 7,7, and 1 for the choices when I did that, highly unlikely that the poll results would have been changed more than a small amount.

        Yeah, I think option C is very unlikely... Unless this isnt an evolution of the Vette but something else, imo either A or B are the ones that will play out.

            I'm all in favor of a ME for those who want one, but ending the FE IMO is going to be a sad day. More evidence that the FE might be done for the near future is that we haven't seen any test mules.

              I don't think GM would fund the development of TWO new Corvettes at the same time. And I think that if it does continue, it will be heavily based on the C7 platform, minimizing development time and cost.
