Here’s When The 2024 Corvette Configurator Will Go Live8
The 2024 Corvette ushers in the fifth model year for the latest eighth-generation Chevy Corvette C8, bringing with it the new 2024 Corvette E-Ray, the first-ever hybrid-powered all-wheel drive production vehicle to wear the storied Corvette nameplate. Production of the 2024 Corvette is set to begin this fall, as GM Authority covered previously. Now, GM Authority has learned when the 2024 Corvette online configurator will go live.
According to GM Authority sources, the 2024 Corvette will go live at Chevy’s website on July 18th, 2023. That includes the configurator for the 2024 Corvette E-Ray, 2024 Corvette Z06, and 2024 Corvette Stingray, as well as the visualizer tool for the 2024 Corvette Z06 and 2024 Corvette Stingray. The visualizer for the 2024 Corvette E-Ray is already available.
The biggest update for the 2024 Corvette is the introduction of the new 2024 Corvette E-Ray, which combines the naturally aspirated 6.2L V8 LT2 gasoline engine cradled by the C8 Corvette Stingray with a single electric motor and 1.9 kWh battery system to produce a combined 655 horsepower.
Meanwhile, the 2024 Corvette lineup will once again offer the C8 Corvette Z06, which was introduced for the 2023 model year. The Corvette Z06 features the naturally aspirated 5.5L V8 LT6 gasoline engine, which produces a maximum of 670 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque, and revs up to an 8,600-rpm redline.
Finally, the C8 Corvette Stingray will slot in as the “entry-level” variant of the 2024 Corvette pyramid, cradling the naturally aspirated 6.2L V8 LT2 gasoline engine, good for 490 horsepower and 465 pound-feet of torque.
All three 2024 Corvette variants ride on the GM Y2 platform, while production takes place at the GM Bowling Green plant in Kentucky, the exclusive producer of the Corvette since 1981. As GM Authority covered previously, production of the 2024 Corvette will begin September 5th, 2023, while production of the 2023 Corvette will end September 1st, 2023.

DONT REALLY CARE
Makes one wonder just how many variants they can place on the Bowling Green production line when they can’t even keep up with the “entry level” C8. Maybe a second facility should be considered?
You are correct. They could not produce enough Stingrays to fulfill the orders, then they added the Z06 which now has a 2-year waiting list, and now introducing the 2024 E-Ray, all built on the same production line. Next year they will be adding Zora. Instead of building new or revamping facilities to manufacture EVs they should consider adding one for the Corvette.
With their capacity at around 30,000 units per year, the breakdown might look like this. 7,500 e rays, 7,500 Z 06’s and 15,000 Stingrays. Looks like the wait time will continue.
Spec yours this summer and get nothing but shortage of this and that ! Yeah right, this package is not available anymore blablabla !
Do you think a customer interested in buying a Corvette will even consider an EV Corvette? Gm should eliminate Producing any. If a republican get in the presidency in 24 the EV phenom will be over.
I hope you’re right about 2024. That said, I would consider an Eray if they told me Toyota was building the hybrid portion and providing long-term parts support…I love the Eray specs, but don’t trust GM enough to execute on the product and parts support.
What I like about the Eray is the potential to be able to build power more easily on the 6.2…if the aftermarket provides the ability to squeeze 600hp+ from the gas engine, the combined power and resulting performance widens the performance gap. I’m assuming it will be difficult to extract much more power from the 5.5 in the Z06.
And before anyone comments that they already have enough power…yes, but I always want a little more.
No Z51 option on the Stingray?
