2020 Corvette Is Officially A Classic In Less Than A Year

The 2020 Chevrolet Corvette has transformed into an instant classic seemingly overnight. It has become an exclusive sports car with only 2,700 vehicles built so far due to the COVID-19 outbreak. This has allowed the brand new Corvette to undergo a true transformation. The prestige of the eighth-generation Corvette has grown because production will not resume for an unknown set of time. A resolved strike with the United Auto Workers (UAW) came just before Coronavirus would again slow down the rate the “C8” would be made. As a result, the slowdown for the production has helped make the 2020 Corvette that much more exclusive.

Good News For Chevrolet Fantastics

Despite the slowdown of production, the good news is that there will be a continued run for the 2020 Corvette (eventually) set to add a much larger set of availability. The bad news is that we don’t know when, but we currently have some Chevrolet Corvette models and ready to go for those who want to drive the Corvette. Keep in mind that to start 2020, Chevrolet was able to begin building the new Corvette in Bowling Green, Kentucky. Production began on February 3, 2020. The mid-engined Corvette finally began rolling off the assembly line, customers began taking delivery, but its launch derailed again when General Motors started to shut down its North American factories to curb the spread of the Coronavirus. Bowling Green built its final Corvette on March 20, according to Consumer Guide.

Where the 2020 Corvette Left Off

The place where the Corvette models are made is located in Bowling Green. Corvette Assembly plant manager revealed in an interview that exactly just 2,700 examples of the 2020 Corvette were built between February 3 and March 20, 2020. A spokesperson for Chevrolet told Autoblog that GM “will continue to build 2020 Corvette Stingrays when the plant resumes production.” So the total number of 2020 Corvettes is likely to increase, but we don’t imagine the increase of the production will grow exponentially. And that means the 2020 will become one of the rarest regular-production models in Corvette’s history. 

Corvette Sales At the Start of Each Decade

With less than 3,000 models moved, let’s remind customers how many Corvette models are sold. Chevrolet sold 10,261 units of the Corvette way back for the 1960 model year, 17,316 for the 1970 model year, and a whopping 40,614 in the 1980 model year. Sales for the 1990, 2000, and 2010 model years moved 23,464, 33,682, and 12,194, respectively. And, 34,822 seventh-generation cars were made during the 2019 model year, with 2,953 ZR1 models powered by a 755-horsepower V8 engine were sold. General Motors has stopped taking orders for the 2020 model. General Motors previously announced the production of the 2021 Corvette will start on September 1st, 2020. 

“Further information will be forthcoming from Chevrolet regarding the handling of sold 2020 model year [cars] that we will be unable to accept, and the creation of a replacement 2021 model year sold order,” the company told its dealers. This suggests customers waiting for a 2020 Corvette may end up with a 2021 model instead.

Miami Lakes Automall supports Chevy and their approach to making children smile.

New Treats For Kids

Feel free to print these Chevrolet themed Halloween themed pumpkin stencils. They are a fantastic way to entertain young kids and teach them about Halloween. For each Chevy enthusiast, this is a cool way to display the beloved Chevy brand and showcase a child’s coloring talents. Create a fun colored Chevrolet Corvette, show off a new Chevrolet Spark, draw the Chevrolet Volt with bat wings and add some color to these 10 Halloween themed stencils.

Just follow these simple rules after printing out the collection of stencils and craft the perfect pumpkin once the drawing is done. And don’t forget to have some fun!

  1. Cut a circle through either the stem end at the top of the pumpkin, or the bottom of the pumpkin to make a cap – we recommend the stem and at the top.
  2. Then, use a large spoon to scoop out the pumpkin’s innards – seeds and pulp.
  3. Follow the dotted lines when cutting out the stencil to have instructions handy. Tape the stencil onto the pumpkin and make sure it’s flat against the surface.
  4. First trace the design by poking holes with a sharp but small tool, like a needle. Now you can remove the stencil from the pumpkin.
  5. Just like a game of connect the dots, cut off your stencil. Push out the cut-out pieces (grey pieces on the stencil) by on them from within the pumpkin. Be gentle.
  6. All that’s left is to place a candle or LED light inside the pumpkin to give it that eerie glow.

We can’t wait to help our customers out at Miami Lakes Automall. We hope you come by for a rewarding and spooky good time in our showroom. Come see the newest generation Corvette, the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette C8 Stringray is here!

New Chevrolet Corvette C8 Has Convertible On the Way, Hits New Top Speed

Chevrolet has unleashed its latest Corvette in the summer of 2019. The eighth-generation Corvette, known as the C8, is the first mid-engine Corvette ever made. Soon the first mid-engine Corvette convertible will be available for customers to enjoy. In October, Chevrolet and General Motors have a planned a reveal for the legendary sportscar. The Corvette C8 has recently made headlines with its incredible speeds, hitting a top speed of 194 miles per hour. This speed was captured at a Chevy event that saw the C8 Stringray trim hit the wildly fast speed. The race track was located in Papenburg, Germany where Chevrolet often travels to test their vehicles in various top-speed ways. For this testing, they actually were able to hit the 194-mph mark running on the track in either direction. (Now, that’s wicked speed!)

Slide Into The Convertible Corvette C8 

According to Corvette Assembly Plant Manager Kai Spande, the Corvette convertible is set to debut “in the October timeframe”. This wasn’t news that was expected to be let out, but those are the expected plans. Interest will remain quite high in many regards as this is still a relatively brand new vehicle that many dealerships haven’t gotten ahold of just yet. The C8 convertible is still months away with a 2020 debut expected. October will just be the real sneak preview for what the look will be like, inside and out and open-air models show pop up in showrooms around the end of winter. The expectation is that the convertible will have multiple powertrain options including the 490 horsepower 6.2-Liter V8 engine as well as the 495 horsepower with the optional Z51 performance package. Each C8 provides an 8-speed dual-clutch automatic that is standard for every trim. The expected price for the convertible Corvette C8 is to be around $10,000 more than the base trim that is currently priced at $59,995 MSRP (plus destination fee). Curious for more information on the Corvette C8 possible engine selection?

More on the 2020 Corvette C8

As drivers today expect more than ever before out of their vehicles, the Corvette C8 provides a remarkable experience for owners. As the standard equipment boasts a fantastic interior with infotainment features like a 10-speaker Bose sound system, 8-inch infotainment system screen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto options. The 12-inch gauge display and LED headlights are a plus, as are the eight-way power seats with dual-zone automatic climate control perks. To get into some of the futuristic features, the trim above the base model Stingray is the 2LT that provides wireless device charging, heated and ventilated seats, blind-spot monitoring with a navigation system that includes satellite radio. 

The highest trim is the 3LT that equips better seats for the driver and passenger, a leather-wrapped interior with suede upper trim. Each trim provides the 6.2-Liter V8 engine but the Z51 Performance Package can move the horsepower from the standard 490 horsepower to 495 horsepower. Twelve exterior color choices can be overwhelming for some to pick one, but not only does the C8 have lots of body color choices, but owners can also choose from six interior themes, six-seatbelt color options, and two alternative stitching upgrades to select from. Want some help from the Corvette experts about what to decide on? We can help all at one place.

The Next-Generation Chevrolet Corvette C8 Has a Release Date

Chevrolet has recently shown off their all-new, next-generation “C8” Chevrolet Corvette. With a single photo posted amongst the various Chevy social media outlets, what appears to be a base model Stingray C8 has captured widespread attention as the vehicle is hidden underneath protective covering with “07.18.19” plastered on the side of the vehicle. Rumors have been swirling for many years about Chevrolet having a mid-engine supercar and General Motors has now confirmed this news. The former “Automobile of the Year” winner by Automobile Magazine and named to back to back Car and Driver “10Best list” in 2018 and 2019, Chevrolet looks to blow away the competition as it has since inception back in 1953 when the Corvette debuted.

Speculation Grows For Chevrolet Corvette C8

Many have wondered what powertrains the all-new C8 will provide. Car and Driver have shared the news that Chevrolet will probably be revamping the 6.2-Liter V8 engine, which should provide about 500 horsepower. It will be named the LT2 to denote the position of the engine. Not a whole lot of information has been revealed, as the vehicle has literally been kept under wraps. Chevrolet has plans to begin production between September and December 2019. Will the Corvette C8 have a twin-turbo after all? Early reports have also listed over 1,000 horsepower for the highest-trim.

Chevrolet Has Plans To Give Back With Final C7 Corvette Sale

The previous-generation C7 ran from 2014-2019 and is winding down sales. Chevy has committed to auction the last-ever built Chevrolet Corvette C7, an all-black z06, for charity at the Barrett-Jackson-Northeast Sale in Connecticut on June 28, 2019. Proceeds will go to the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation, providing some funds to injured service members as well as help pay off mortgages for families of first responders who have lost their lives in the line of duty.

“The sale of this iconic Corvette will help the foundation continue its good work, and pave the way for the Next Generation Corvette that we will introduce on July 18,” General Motors CEO Mary Barra

Final Official Word on the C8

When pressed for details about the upcoming next-generation C8, Chevrolet, unfortunately, had no words to express about the upcoming supercar. We will just have to wait for the date, July 18th, brightly posted in red on the hidden C8 model. Though they didn’t say much, the debut is right around the corner this summer. Pricing has been speculated at around $63,000 for the base Stingray Corvette.

“Thanks for reaching out. We’re not providing details on production timing at this point.” company spokesperson Kevin M. Kelly said. Auctioning the last one in June suggests that C7 assembly is ending sooner, though.
