Yellow is fairly hit or miss on cars, but the Corvette has always worn it well if you ask us. Previously, the C4 offered a Competition Yellow, followed up by Millennium Yellow which, you guessed it, was introduced in 2000 alongside the C5 Corvette.
Since the C6 Corvette, Velocity Yellow has been the offering for those looking for a bright and sunny paint hue on the car, but if a new report from Corvette Blogger is to be believed, its days may be numbered.
The site reports the color now only has a ten percent availability on orders for the Corvette, which has been seen before from GM as they begin winding down use of an exterior color a few months before it’s officially retired.
Previously the site also reported Kirk Bennion, Corvette exterior design manager, let it slip a new yellow hue was on the way, only to surprise everyone with Daytona Sunrise Metallic instead for the C7 Corvette, an orange hue.
Now, it seems Bennion pulled a fast one by throwing everyone off, and a new yellow may indeed be on the way. If it’s to be believed, better order now before the Velocity Yellow is one for the history books.
