2020 Corvette Is Not Sold Out Just Yet11
The all-new 2020 Corvette has created quite the buzz in the car world, like few others ever have. This has, unsurprisingly, led to many prospective buyers putting down deposits and attempting to score allocation spots for a 2020 ‘Vette to call their own. And, as an equally unsurprising result, reports have surfaced indicating that the 2020 model year Corvette may be “nearly sold out.”
Though fret not, as that quote, attributed to GM Vice President of Global Design, Michael Simcoe, was followed up by, “it’s so close that it’s bound to be sold out soon.”
Luckily, Chevrolet is “continuing to take orders for the 2020 Corvette Stingray,” Chevrolet Senior Manager of Car and Crossover Communications, Kevin Kelly, told GM Authority.
Of course, it’s not hard to see why buyers the world over are clamoring for the latest, greatest Corvette. Its engine, now mounted behind the driver, is the new GM 6.2L V8 LT2 good for 495 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque when paired with the optional performance exhaust system. That engine is paired exclusively to an 8-speed dual clutch automatic transmission, which General Motors co-developed with Tremec. No manual transmission will be offered.
The resulting performance figures are nothing short of impressive, with a claimed 0-60 MPH sprint of under three seconds, and on to a 194 mph top speed.
However, this new C8 generation of Corvette continues to be a regularly-produced vehicle, and not some limited-production-volume model. As such, Chevrolet will sell as many as 2020 Corvette models as it can. After all, with a starting price point of $59,995, which includes the $1,095 destination charge, the Bow Tie brand will surely rely on decent sales volume to make the car worth its while. So, if you rush to your local Chevrolet dealership, if you haven’t already, chances are good that you can still secure a 2020 Corvette of your own.

Same as what they said about the CT6-V. Full of crap. Some execs can create positive buzz, and some should just stick to the script
You are just jealous that you can never buy one.
That’s because I’m a single parent putting my youngest through college.
It’s my fault. I’m sorry.
I would like one, for sure. But, soon!
get your mexican neighbor to pay for it and your chinese neighbor to pay for repairs/fuel/insurance/registration.
any fool can see that will work.
You are the biggest fool here. Many U.S citizens can pay for it, since most are buying imports that are higher priced yet poorly built. My brother has a Mercedes-Benz but when he visits, he borrows my Chevy Equinox!
if you put on your maga hat, what i wrote makes perfect sense.
Damn, lucky kid. That kid owes you a C8 when it gets a job.
first year discount is justified since those buyers will be dealing with teething problems.
I don’t plan on buying one, but I would be willing to endure issues to help improve it.
I am going to go back to my Chevy dealers and shown them this article! They will have to let my buy a C8, after this….hopefully! If they don’t have to go out of state to look for one like many of friends have already place their orders. But the dealers here just tell buyers that they no longer accept orders since the 1st day, 1st hour after the C8 release.
They took me to hit the street! Order book is close for all of 2020 models!
