C8 Chevrolet Corvette Production Resumes

Waiting for a new C8 Chevrolet Corvette? Chevrolet’s given its suppliers plenty of time to get back online.


  • 800-850 will be assembled per week.

  • 2020 Vettes may be built until December.

  • 2023 70th anniversary Corvette reservations are being taken.


There seems to be no end in sight for the enthusiasm surrounding the new C8 Chevrolet Corvette. After a short hiatus due to a lack of parts from suppliers (that also suffered various shutdowns due to the pandemic), the Bowling Green Assembly line in Kentucky is back in action.

The video, shared by Motor1.com, gives a number of uplifting details about the C8 Chevrolet Corvette, from the 2020 all the way to the 2023 model year. First, production of the 2020 MY C8 will carry on into this December meaning that most who placed a reservation for one will get it. 2020 MY Vettes will go online shortly after and pre-orders for the 2022 model year car are filling up quickly.

As well, deposits are being taken for the 2023 70th anniversary which may feature a number of decals and special badges.

Now that the assembly has plenty of parts to build more Corvettes, they will return to their two-shift plan in order to meet the sustained demand for the car. According to the source video, between 800 and 850 new Corvettes will leave the line every week.

Initially, production of the C8 was set to begin in late 2019 but a 40-day strike put these plans on hold. Not too long after, the pandemic did its thing.
