The launch of the 2020 Corvette has been anything but smooth, with numerous delays stemming from not only a lengthy labor strike last year, but also production stoppages resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic. Nevertheless, the National Corvette Museum has still managed to deliver some 943 units of the 2020 Corvette to eager customers.
For those that don’t know, General Motors offers customers the option to pick up their new Corvette at the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, Kentucky. Also known as the R8C option, the National Corvette Museum delivery package includes a tour of the Bowling Green production facility which produces the Chevrolet Corvette, as well as an orientation and presentation of their new sports car, a commemorative wall plaque, and several other perks.
“Though production of the the 2020 Corvette is expected to continue through early December, with order changes no longer being allowed the team at GM was able to go ahead and release the final stats,” the National Corvette Museum states on its website.
In addition to insight into which trim levels, exterior colors, and options were the most popular among 2020 Corvette buyers, the National Corvette Museum also revealed that the Museum “will have delivered 943 Corvettes for the 2020 model year.”
Interestingly, the most popular 2020 Corvette exterior color was Torch Red, topping the list with a quarter of models produced. Arctic White was second with 15 percent, while black was third with 11.7 percent and Sebring Orange was fourth with 6.8 percent.
What’s more, recent specs reveal that over 90 percent of 2020 Corvette units were sold in the U.S., including 15,304 coupes and 3,273 convertibles. Canada was second with 7.3 percent, followed by the Middle East with 0.8 percent.
