GM Authority was the first to report the build-out date for 2021 Corvette models in Zeus Bronze Metallic paint. Now, we’re here to bring you further exclusive coverage, this time with the build-out date for Sebring Orange Tintcoat exterior paint.
The final week of production for 2021 Corvette models finished in Sebring Orange Tintcoat is set for June 26th, 2021. As such, customers looking to own a new C8 in Sebring Orange Tintcoat are advised to place an order before the end of April, as the paint option is not expected to return for the 2022 model year.
Sebring Orange Tintcoat is one of three exterior paint options set to retire with the 2021 Corvette. Zeus Bronze Metallic and Shadow Gray will also be discontinued with the introduction of the 2022 model-year vehicle. As GM Authority reported last week, the build-out date for 2021 Corvette models in Zeus Bronze Metallic is set for June 14th, 2021.
Sebring Orange Tintcoat, Zeus Bronze Metallic, and Shadow Gray are among the least-popular paint options for the new C8 Corvette. According to the National Corvette Museum, Zeus Bronze Metallic had the lowest adoption rate for 2020 model-year vehicles, with 548 units sold, or 2.7 percent of the total volume. Shadow Gray Metallic netted 1,111 sales, or 5.5 percent of the total volume, while Sebring Orange Tintcoat netted 1,377 units, or 6.8 percent of the total volume. The most popular color choice for the 2020 Corvette was Torch Red, with 5,137 units, or 25.2 percent of total volume.
Following the end of production for the 2021 Corvette, the 2022 Corvette is expected to introduce three new colors to the list, which may be called Amplify Orange Tintcoat, Caffeine Brown Metallic, and Hypersonic Gray Metallic.
