1ST YEAR OF CORVETTE C8 PRODUCTION IS NEARLY SOLD OUT
Autoblog was on the scene at the 2019 Concours d'Elegance of America in late July, where GM design chief Michael Simcoe confirmed the C8 Corvette's 2020 allocation is nearly sold out. “I think the orders have already hit the first year of production numbers,” Simcoe told the crowd during a presentation at the Concours d'Elegance. “It’s nearly sold out," he later told Autoblog during an interview. "It’s so close that it’s bound to be sold out soon.” Prospective Corvette buyers have been able to reserve a mid-engine C8 via an online registration process since the car's unveiling. Simcoe did not reveal number of reservations placed, nor did he reveal the number of cars Chevy plans to build for the 2020 model year.
