  • Two New Colors for 2023?

    Looks like Carbon Flash Metallic and some type of metallic or pearl white might be available for 2023.

    This is an amazing find. Was this display at the LA auto show? The speculative information about new colors has been about the yellow and blue getting darker metallic tints. But this showcases 14 colors which is certainly breaking news. Great find baseballer!

          I don't think the paint shop can do 14 colors without an expensive upgrade, so two of those colors will probably go away. If they're going to add CF Black and Pearl white, I'd bet on Arctic White and Black going away.

          Didn't they do Carbon Flash on one of the previous anniversary editions? Maybe Pearl White and CF Black will be one year colors for the 70h anniversary.

            For the 2012, 100th Anniversary of Chevrolet, Corvette offered a black metallic paint which they called “Carbon Flash.”

              I agree that two of the 14 colors would need to go away due to as has been noted many times that the paint shop is only able to do 12 colors. Black is historically he third or fourth most popular color most years so I doubt it is going away completely but maybe just as noted above for 2023 there is a substitute of black metallic paint for it and standard black does go away (exactly what happened for the 2012 MY).

                Not a chance arctic white and standard black will go away. I would say ceramic matrix gray and caffeine would be more likely to be replaced.

                  History as least as black is concerned shows that it can and one year did go away — when in 2012 it was replaced by “Carbon Flash,” e.g., the metallic black. Could not for 2023 as the 70th Anniversary Design Package Arctic white go on similar one year sabbatical — being replaced by Pearlescent Metallic White for that one year?

                        It is hard to show the Carbon Flash paint accurately. Brad66’s picture above does it as well as anyones I have seen. Here would be my second picture choice of it (especially focusing on the vertical corner of the front fascia).

                          If these are the new options, I'm just surprised. I'd like the pearl white on a Tahoe/Suburban SUV, but not on my corvette. I Love the Carbon Flash accents, but can't see myself with it in the entire car. I'll be leaning towards the Orange or Accent yellow for the Z06 if these are my choices. First, get an allocation........................

                            I just wondered, what if the 70th Anniversary Design Package is actually two options — though both with the fully dipped Adrenaline Red interior? One exterior color could be Pearlescent Metallic White. Could the other one be Carbon Flash?

                            Rick, we are personally with you that those two exterior colors will not be on our Z06. Instead if today’s news is later confirmed, it totally solidified us on Hypersonic Metallic.

                              Could this be a GM "fishing expedition" to get a reaction? So far no response from Baseballer about where he found this...so perhaps it was the LA show. Historically has GM floated a trial balloon up in the air gauge public reaction or is this fairly likely to be the new colors? I was hoping for a different/new color entirely...
