According to a letter to dealerships, Chevrolet has cut allocation and will not be accepting any more orders for the 2021 model year C8. The letter states “General Motors has had to make an adjustment in the number of Corvette Stingrays available for the 2021 model year.”
With all the production stoppages during the 2021 C8 build, GM had only two options, 1) stick with the original end date for the 2021 model year, or 2) push the start date for the 2022 out and keep building the 2021 model. Closing order books and limiting production of the C8 to only orders that are already booked with an accepted status.
Customers with an unaccepted order at their Chevrolet dealership for a 2021 will need to change their order to a 2022 model year Vette. The 2022 Corvette will start at $62,195, including the destination charge ($1,200 increase over the 2021). The 2022 C8 also gets a new “enhanced” Active Fuel Management system, but the power stays the same.

Mike D.’s 2008 Pace Car Convertible
I just bought a 2007 Corvette Indy Pace Car from Corvette Mike’s in California. California??? I live in Pennsylvania WOW!!! I bought this car sight unseen. The car was delivered exactly as described by pictures and video. Troy, my salesman, was awesome in his description of the car and helped in getting it shipped to PA. (Which Corvette Mike took care of all the shipping needs). Jeff took care of my easy paperwork and got the title to me very quickly. Now it sits next to my 98 Vette Pace Car in my garage.

What Mike Likes about this Corvette:
“The excitement that builds around the Indianapolis 500 every year during Memorial Day weekend creates an adrenaline pumping feeling in most race car fans throughout the world. We are excited to offer this 2008 factory produced replica of the Indy 500 Pace Car one of only 234 coupes made with the Z4Z option code.
This remarkable example only has 2,000 original miles on it and came from a very good collector client of ours.
The first time the Corvette paced the race in Indianapolis was in 1978 that was the year that I bought my first Corvette and the bug bit me hard. Hard enough to create a company that was sort of, A Dream, Corvette Mike.
The Pace Car than was silver and black two tone and sold for tens of thousands of dollars over sticker price for the first time in Corvette history. Keep in mind it was also the 25th Anniversary of the Corvette Rolling off the assembly line in Flint Michigan in June 1953.”
