UAW strike and COVID-19 have massacred Chevy’s Corvette plans for 2020.
Switch over to slightly improved 2021 model year starts in September.
Less than 2,700 2020 C8 Corvette Coupe have been built so far.
This situation, as awful as it is, has the makings of the creation of a highly sought-after car. With only 2,695 2020 Chevrolet Corvette Coupes built and sold, if production does not pick up before this summer, that maybe it for the 2020 model year. This also means that the equally anticipated 2020 convertible will never be. The silver lining is that Chevy’s already announced welcomed upgrades for 2021.
Rick Corvette Conti, a well-known YouTuber, and Corvette fan had a chat with Kai Spande the Corvette Assembly Plant manager where he revealed that, officially, it’s too early to say if there will be a 2020 Corvette Convertible. Odds are it won’t happen but there’s good news.
For 2021, Chevrolet will magnetic ride control as a standalone option as opposed to a feature only accessible with the Z51 package. As we’ve experienced first-hand in the past, Magnetic Ride Control is a must. As well, the 2021 Corvette will include wireless Apple CarPlay, new stripe patterns, and new paint colors.
