News All-New 2020 C8 Chevy Corvette Almost Sold Out

All-New 2020 C8 Chevy Corvette Almost Sold Out

The order books opened barely two weeks ago and already the planned run of the new mid-engined C8 Chevy Corvette is nearly sold out.

This fact, shared by Michael Simcoe, GM design chief, demonstrates a few things. First, naysayers and non-believers in GM’s mid-engine layout and overall design of the new 2020 Chevy Corvette C8 have no idea what they are talking about. It also proves that GM took an extremely calculated risk in launching the C8 and knew what they were doing. At least as far as the 2020 model year is concerned.

In a brief chat with Autoblog, Simcoe would not elaborate on how many C8 Corvettes were slated for production for the 2020 model year. In the past, upwards of 30,000 new Vettes found homes in a given year however we think that the number for 2020 is considerably lower than 30k.

About the naysayers and non-believers, they may not be entirely wrong. To see how the real Corvette crowd will react to the car will only be known later on in a few years when the hype surrounding the car is gone. Understandably, a large portion of current sales are likely going to car buyers wanting little more than being the first in their neighborhood driving a new C8 Chevy Corvette.

Obviously, a number of diehard Vette fans have signed on and are eagerly awaiting delivery of their new C8 however strong initial demand for any giving product is never a guarantee of success.

One way GM may decide to keep the love going for the new C8 Chevy Corvette is by limiting the number of units available over time. The hype will be rekindled regularly with the introduction of high-powered versions. First, the convertible then the Z06, a ZR1 and drop-top versions of the boosted iterations and more.

No matter what, we are looking forward to getting a phone call or email invitation to drive this hot number.
