    ELB was the 7th most popular color in 2019 even though it replaced Admiral Blue halfway through the year. I don't think it's going anywhere but you never know what Chevy will do.

      I too love the Elkhart Lake, but it is a shame you cannot get the red interior with that exterior color. Makes no sense to me!

        Really? I thought you could get any combo as long as you paid for the "color override" option ?

          Correct that with option “D30” @ $590, you can get either red interior with Elkhart Lake Blue.

            The blue is a good looking color for the C8. Charlie aka cutnout

              I was hoping the old Lyndale blue of the '67 Vettes might make a return. Thought the Shadow gray might be it, but saw it on another Chevy model and it's not close to what it looks like on the build and price color selection area of their web page.

                I'd be OK with GM making ELB a 2020 only color for the C8.

                I like rarity WRT colors, like what GM did with LRG in 2014.

                  I think you are right.....it is about $600 and you can do that. Sorry. Strange to me that the red interior would not be available without the override, since it does look good IMO

                    I believe the interior would come as a part kit. Why would GM care what color combinations you ordered for *your* Corvette?

                      Personally I like the blue and the red together, a combo even a member of the Corvette team referred to recently as a “Superman car.”

                      For many years GM made it impossible to order a combo what they did not think was visually best. As a result of our collective input wanting more color choices, they now allow those color comb’s. As to “why a fee,” I know of a yellow C7 with a red interior and a blue top, a 1 of 1 to be sure. Let’s assume your ordered that car, but after seeing even 2/3’s of it (the same car but with a more normal black top) at a car show before yours arrived at your dealership, you then decided not to buy your car when it arrived at the dealership, e.g., the yellow and the red together were not your cup of tea once you saw it in person.

                      How long would the dealer have to try to sell that 1 of 1, and how much of a discount would the dealer incur to try and move that “creation?” In fact, I know of one dealer that routinely charges a $5,000 non-refundabl amounts for such “unique” color combo orders, again to reduce his getting stuck with such things.

                      The $590 D30 option helps to try and weed out the “maybes’ from the “I’m sure I want that combo” customers.

                        I hope you get your wish and ELB is available for the entire C8 life-cycle.

                        Everyone should have a chance to get the greatest exterior color

                          For those of you old enough to remember, back in the 1960's; Corvettes could be ordered in primer. I know at least in 1966 and 1967 you could and I have heard that you could order them raw, no primer, but I do not have first hand knowledge of any raw Corvettes ever being shipped. When you ordered just primer no paint credit was issued and the trim tag was left blank in the color code area. There have always been little secret options out there, and not just with Corvettes or GM just need to know the right person to ask, just like the "In & Out Burger" secret menu.

                            That is what scares me.
