This just in....

Chevrolet needs to reduce 2020 Corvette production by roughly 20% because of the working days it lost while the factory was closed due to the UAW strike, and to offset the time it spent tracking down internal issues with the car. Production of the 2021 model is scheduled to begin Sept. 1, and pushing that date back to manufacture more 2020s isn't an option.

Davenport pointed out the situation isn't as dire as it might sound. Chevrolet dealerships can earn extra allocations, and enthusiasts who ordered their Corvette from bigger stores across the nation have nothing to worry about, especially if they've given the sales department their full name and their email address. The stores who won't get all of their 2020 orders fulfilled are primarily the ones charging well over MSRP, or those trying to build up an inventory of unsold Corvettes. Chevrolet is prioritizing sold orders placed by individuals.

If you're waiting for a C8 Corvette, contact the dealer you bought it from to make sure it's on its way. "It's very important that you communicate with your dealer so you get your order in," Davenport summed up. Chevrolet will roll the 2020 orders it can't fill over to the 2021 model year; Corvette Forum pointed out the same thing happened when the seventh-generation car went on sale for the 2014 model year. The Corvette is widely expected to cost more in 2021, but executives might delay the increase until the plant fills every order placed for a 2020 model.

Chevrolet remains on track to begin producing the eighth-generation Corvette in Bowling Green, Kentucky, on February 3, though Davenport learned the first car might roll off the assembly line a few days earlier.

Sort of sounds like a nothing-burger. Wasn't it common knowledge already that they would be delayed coming out around Feb 3 due to the strike?

How can GM know how much over MSRP a dealer might charge? Once the car goes to the dealer, isn't any mark up out of their hands? Again, a non-issue. If a customer pays over msrp, that's his choice. Oh well. I wouldn't want to be first year adopter of this new design anyhow. Good luck to those who are....A strike, internal issues, dealer availability BS, MSRP/ADM games...No thanks.

Except for the strike, that sounds pretty much just like the 2010 Camaro... and that worked out fine.

GM has SO MUCH riding on the C8 that it will undoubtedly be very well sorted when it comes out.

Yes, it also worked out for me. I waited a year and got an '11. Everything went smooth and hassle free. (Plus heads-up display, back up sensors, and shock towers for a chassis brace were included as standard and not even available on a '10). And a negotiated lower price than the '10s.

I recall the ADM on the 5thGen ZL1s. A rip-off. A non-issue shortly after their introduction. GM let the dealers ruin the 5thGen Z/28 with their ADMs.

If you want to be an early adopter of the C8 Corvette, be ready for major head-aches, high prices, dealer mumbo-jumbo, and hopefully a trouble free car if and when you get it. Or, simply wait a year and enjoy it without all the BS...

I hate ADMs because stupid people who don't care about wasting money will give it away to stealerships...which makes it more difficult for the educated buyer to get MSRP or lower.

that is not possible, if you go into the VS forum ADM is only a Ford problem and never happens to GM

Now if there is just a market for that stuff, maybe that will be good.

Guess I'm just an old Fezza fan now...which happened when they quit installing manual transmissions anyway.
