Anticipation for the 2023 Chevy Corvette Z06 is high, with countless fans eager to get the new mid-engine supercar into their driveway. Unfortunately, GM Authority has learned that 2023 Chevy Corvette Z06 production will be heavily constrained for the foreseeable future.
According to GM Authority sources, 2023 Chevy Corvette Z06 production will be constrained at just 10 percent of accepted orders due to what the automaker refers to as a plant restriction. For now, there’s no end date in sight with regard to this latest production constraint, and for the time being at least, the constraint is applied for the entire 2023 model year. That said, it’s possible the constraint may change over time.
As GM Authority covered previously, production of the 2023 Corvette Z06 will begin in September at the GM Bowling Green plant in Kentucky. It’s unknown at this time the number of orders GM is accepting for the new mid-engine supercar, nor is it known how many units GM will end up building. That said, we can safely assume there won’t be many throughout the 2023 model year.
Per previous GM Authority coverage, GM will allocate new units of the 2023 Chevy Corvette Z06 to dealers using a Historic Sales Volume model based on 2020, 2021, and 2022 Corvette C8 Stingray 3LT sales volume. This is in contrast to an Average Day Supply dealer allocation model, which takes into account the number of days it takes a dealer to sell a certain vehicle.
As a reminder, the 2023 Corvette Z06 is motivated by the atmospheric 5.5L V8 LT6 gasoline engine. Output is rated at 670 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque, while under the skin, the new Z06 rides on the GM Y2 platform.
