Supply Issues Cause C8 Corvette Production Halt
According to The Detroit News, Chevrolet is forced to, once again, pause production of the C8 Corvette for two days this Thursday and Friday due to a parts shortage from a supplier plant in Mexico.
Production is scheduled to resume on Monday, November 16th. It is estimated that this recent shutdown will prevent roughly 540 Corvettes from being built this week: further adding to the already plagued 2020 production. It has been reported that Chevrolet has built an impressive 13,039 C8’s as of October 7th, 2020; about 7,000 short of the production goal of 20,000 units before switching to the 2021 model.
It is unclear if this shutdown will affect the switch to the production of the 2021 model in early December. It is reported that the deleted carbon fiber aerodynamics kit and High Wing Spoiler from the 2020 C8 option list, due to supplier constraints, will return for the 2021.

What Mike likes about this Corvette:
“The yellows of the 60’s were pleasing and fitting for the body style of the original Stingray! Introduced in 1963 this body style wreaks of sleekness and performance!
And perform you shall have with this ever popular and desirable 327/365hp small block powerhouse under the hood. Built with the same Duntov cam of the Fuelie which developed 10hp more. A lot of hardware for a measly 10 ponies. This local ‘65 convertible was purchased in San Diego and driven straight to the shop in Anaheim. A fun drive of over 70 miles. How many 55 year old cars can boast dependability like that.
This is truly a driver’s car and one you can be proud of for years to come.
Saddle up riders, we’re coming into town!!! Yeehaw!!”
