The 2023 Chevy Corvette Stingray will arrive as the fourth model year for the latest Chevy Corvette C8, introducing only minor changes and updates over the previous 2022 Chevy Corvette Stingray. Notably, customers interested in customizing their 2023 Corvette Stingray can do so with optional Black Exhaust Tips.
Unfortunately, images of the new Black Exhaust Tips are currently unavailable. That said, early spy photos up the upcoming Corvette 70th Anniversary Edition do capture a black finish for the rear tips.
The new optional Black Exhaust tips slated for inclusion on the 2023 Corvette Stingray options list are tagged with RPO code NGA. The optional black tips will be available across all trim levels of the 2023 Corvette Stingray, offered as a standalone option, but requiring the optional performance exhaust system (RPO code NPP).
As GM Authority covered previously, the production start date for the 2023 Corvette Stingray has been pushed back to May 16th, per sources familiar with the matter. The 2023 Corvette Stingray was originally slated to hit production May 9th, but the date was pushed back due to a one-week shutdown at the GM Bowling Green plant in March, the result of a parts shortage. The GM Bowling Green facility has been the exclusive producer of the Chevy Corvette since 1981.
Order books for the 2023 Corvette Stingray opened April 7th. Among the highlights of the 2023 model year is the introduction of the 70th Anniversary Edition, a new package that’s available for both Coupe and Convertible body styles, and includes a variety of aesthetic changes for the interior and exterior.
Also of note is the deletion of the Sky Cool Gray / Strike Yellow interior color, as well as the introduction of the new Chevy Corvette C8 Z06.
As a reminder, the C8 Corvette Stingray is motivated by the naturally aspirated 6.2L V8 LT2 gasoline engine, which is rated at 495 horsepower at 6,450 rpm and 470 pound-feet of torque at 5,150 rpm when equipped with the optional performance exhaust system. Routing output to the rear wheels is the 8-speed dual clutch M1L automatic transmission, while under the skin is the GM Y2 architecture.
