The 2023 Corvette is the fourth model year for the eighth-generation Chevy Corvette C8, introducing a few critical updates and changes compared to the preceding 2022 model year, not the least of which was the debut of the new C8 Corvette Z06. Notably, GM Authority has now learned that two of the 2023 Corvette’s paint colors are no longer available to order.
The two 2023 Corvette paint colors no longer available to order include Caffeine Metallic (paint code G48) and Elkhart Lake Blue Metallic (paint code GS7).
Both of these hues have been built out for the 2023 model year. They are unlikely to return for the 2024 Corvette. It’s also worth mentioning that White Pearl Tricoat (paint code G1W) will also likely not return for the 2024 model year, as it was exclusive to the 70th Anniversary Special Edition package.
For those readers who may not know, Caffeine Metallic (paint code G48) was introduced to the Corvette lineup for the 2022 model year, while Elkhart Lake Blue Metallic (paint code GS7) was introduced with the 2019 Corvette, the final model year for the C7-generation sports car.
Looking ahead, the 2024 Corvette will introduce three new hues, specifically Cacti, Riptide Blue, and Sea Wolf Gray Tricoat. Per an exclusive GM Authority report, the 2024 Corvette’s official online configurator will go live at Chevy’s website on July 18th, 2023. The configurator will include the 2024 Corvette E-Ray, the 2024 Corvette Z06, and the 2024 Corvette Stingray.
Under the skin, all C8 Corvette variants ride on the GM Y2 platform. Production takes place exclusively at the GM Bowling Green plant in Kentucky. As covered previously, production of the 2024 Corvette will kick off early this coming September.
