This week marks the last of the 2021 C8 production with a total of 26,212 produced. This is an increase of around 6,000 more than Chevrolet was able to produce of the 2020’s (20,368 2020s were built).
About 42 percent of 2021 Corvette Stingray orders were ordered as Convertibles. The convertible is gaining popularity, as customers seem to like the convertible hard top. If the ordering pattern stays the same, it looks like the 2022 C8 will be around 45% convertibles.
Production of the 2022 Corvette began on September 6th, but even with Chevy being able to increase production, there remains a big backlog of customers who have ordered cars and are waiting up to a year for delivery. Fortunately, the Corvette plant has been able to keep production running this week, while the rest of GM has been forced to shutter because of the lack of computer chips for two weeks.

Raymond D.’s 1957
I recently purchased a ’57 Corvette that Corvette Mike put up for auction. I’m in Arizona and the transaction from California could not have been handled better. After the car arrived, I found some things that I thought needed attention … Corvette Mike’s was not required to help me on this but they were extremely interested in listening to me and they stepped up and helped me get this done.
I would feel comfortable buying from them again. It’s refreshing to be treated well.

What Mike Likes about this Z06/Z07:
“From a very caring father that bought this car for his son to entice him to take over his business so he could retire, but shortly after turning over the keys to his business and this Z06, his son got into an accident in another vehicle. The father held onto this Z06 for a few years and took great care of it in memory of his son, but it just kept reminding him of his loss, so he contacted me to help him find a new caring home.
This great Arctic White trimmed with black stripe from the tip to the tail and Kalahari chairs makes you want to jump up and down with joy!! But please buckle up while seated and hang on because the G Force acceleration will surely pull your cheeks back to touch your ears! Ever heard that one before? Not likely unless you are accustomed to cars with 650 plus horsepower. Not for the faint of heart mind you.
Now everyone knows I drive a Z06.”
