  • How much longer before we will find out the "OFFICIAL 2021" C8 order start date.

    When will we find out when we can officially order 2021's? [I have seen the 'guesses' for the 2021 order start date, but I want to know for CERTAIN]

    I put up my deposit July 2019 and am now next up for an allocation at my dealer, but I want to be at the dealership when the order goes in to be certain it is correct. I would really like to see the new "RED" color, as I had Torch Red on my 2020 order which was never picked up for allocation.

    Hopefully we will get a few days notice before dealers are allowed to start entering 2021 orders, so we can finalize our order.

    UPDATE: THANKS TO [email protected] CHEVROLET FOR THE ANSWER TO THIS CRITICAL. QUESTION. PLEASE READ HIS POST # 11.

    I would love to have more clarification on the 2021 new RED as well. Does anyone know if it looks similar to the stunning (to me) Mazda red they have put on several of their cars? Tadge said the new Red "glows" and it seems the Mazda kinda glows as well. I guess this picture is close to the New Red???

        Late July is all we know. You should ask your dealer to let you know when it opens and arrange a time to go.

          I thought it was July 13th. Did it change?

            I don't think that was ever an official GM statement.

                Agreed 100%. If the new red is close to the "Mazda red", I too will be a happy camper.

                  Tadge was quoted at the virtual bash as saying mid to end of July. That could be 13th to 31st. No Official date yet. There were 2 conflicting dealer memos from GM. The later being an "unfortunate and inaccurate release" according to many inside GM. We'll know soon enough.

                    I strongly believe that we will learn the OFFICIAL order date from this forum, before the dealers find out what it is. The 'birdies'
                    will take care of us.

                    One problem is that other than the forum dealerships, a lot of dealers runoff at the mouth making pronouncements
                    that are not even close to being official. They pass on bad information to their customers who post it here.

                    The folks at Kerbeck, MacMulkin, Criswell, etc NEVER tell you rumors, they just give you facts when they have them.

                    What I am looking forward to getting is the "official date" from one of the corvette team members at BG in the near future.

                    Then I will go to the dealer and place my order!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

                            Does this mean order start date for both coupe and HTC? Does anyone know? And when do dealerships get to know their 2021 allocations?

                              That is a great question - do any dealers on the forum [Ron Weber??, Mike Furman??] know the answer to that?

                              I lot of folks on MECF would love to know if any allocations will be available on July 30th !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
