While many other GM vehicles have faced various equipment shortages/constraints due to supply chain snags, the C8 Corvette has mostly been shielded from the backlogs and delays that are currently plaguing the automotive industry. That’s now changed, however, as the 2023 Corvette Stingray and 2023 Corvette Z06 are no longer available to order with the optional Edge Red painted brake calipers (RPO code J6N) due to a supplier constraint.
This change means customers are not able to order the Edge Red painted calipers on either the 2023 Corvette Stingray or the 2023 Corvette Z06 in any of the available trim levels. This is typically a $695 option on the Stingray and Z06.
The Edge Red painted caliper is also standard equipment on the 70the Anniversary Special Edition package, so buyers of vehicles with this option would typically have to opt for the Bright Red painted calipers instead (RPO J6F), however this package is not available to order at the moment due to a supply constraint. GM has delayed ordering of vehicles equipped with the 70th Anniversary Package as a result of this ongoing supply constraint.
Production of the 2023 Corvette Z06 is also extremely limited at the moment due to various supply chain setbacks, as we reported previously. GM has stopped taking new sold orders for the nameplate at the moment, as well. This applies to both the 2023 Corvette Z06 Coupe and Z06 Convertible. It’s unclear when GM may be able to once again accept Z06 orders, nor how many it will be able to produce for the 2023 model year.
We’ll provide an update on the supply challenges currently facing the 2023 Corvette Stingray and Z06 once more information is available.
