  • 2021 Production Starts In January

    Since this is third-hand info alleged to come from GM, and relayed to us by being attributed to a dealership General Manager, but IF true there would not be a single 2021 received by a customer until February of next year at the earliest. Judge for yourself the accuracy of this info cut and pasted by “vetteguy453.”

    If later confirmed, does getting a 2020 in September or October, even November not seem so bad as some have been saying... Probably so from the perspective of those living in the snow belt, but as 60% of the Corvette purchased are not in the snow belt but live in cool or even moderate winter climates where Corvettes are driven 12 months a year, so might late 2020 C8 recipients instead wish to drive their Corvettes three or even four months sooner than the first of the 2021’s arriving in Feb or even March?

    Before the below screen print, the latest I had heard was that the first 2021’s could be arriving in late December or January.

      I live in the upper midwest. A November delivery wouldn’t have helped me, so getting a 2021 is fine. This isn’t my area of expertise, but from a logical point of view, I would think the “retooling” would be minimal. I’m certain GM would like to build these cars as fast as possible. When I start feeling bad for myself, I think about the folks that are on the 2021 list that just got pushed back - WAY back. (so no one jumps on me, when I say 2021 list, I’m referring to those that put deposits down AFTER the 2020 “1100 group”.) Generally speaking, it appears most who are active on the forum have/had 2020 cars ordered. Clearly, many buyers are already on the 2021 list. Ugh. I wish everyone the best in their quest to own a C8!

          Unless there are bigger changes to the 2021 than we think, I don't know why there would be such a long gap to "retooling."

            Retooling may not take a month but the holidays are in December as well, necessitating time off.

                Hoping I won't have that long of a wait, but it seems logical. I'm on a 2021 list, but there are 16 people ahead of me at my dealer that didn't get a 2020 allocation. However, on the bright side, if this is true, that at least means that list won't get longer ahead of me if all 3000 are to be built.

                  So when do the next model year Corvettes usually come out? In other words, do the NMY cars usually come out in July of the previous year? Are not we getting closer to the 2022s coming out? I mean if they would normally come out in July and I don't get my 2021 until (May maybe). Just wait a little longer for the 2022? But I must assume the entire 2021 production year will be screwed up and will screw up the 2022 MY as well.

                  Imaginary 2021 Red Mist (probably) HTC. 3LT but maybe only need 2LT, GT2 Seats, Two Tone Natural probably... Z51 most likely... Standard wheels and Front Lift for sure! So who knows what we'll order:-)

                        The December / holiday shut down is in accordance with the UAW / GM contract. It has very little to do with the model year 'change over'.

                        For those worried about getting a late model year 2021, and considering waiting for a 2022, why not wait for a Z06 or even a ZORA??? It's kinda' like getting a new computer or mobile phone. You're only weeks away from the next greatest thing. I've found over the past 50+ years, getting what I want as early as possible and ENJOYING it while the others are waiting on the sidelines is really the best strategy. You only live once and you're going to be dead a really long time..... GO FOR IT!

                          I question the need to re-tool. It's not like there are substantive changes being made here. When we changed model years at Subaru, we slowed the line a bit to ensure quality as the changes were incorporated, and within a week or so, we were back to our previous line speed. The idea of a full line stop is absurd.

                            You sound like my daughter, gimme, gimme now! I totally understand though. You gotta jump in the water at some point. Well, I was thinking that it will be so close until the Z06 comes out:-)

                              It's only 3 weeks. If machines have to be changed the line has to stop. We still don't know what changes there will be on the 2021's
