T​he 2020 C8 Corvette is one of the most anticipated vehicles of the past few years, put simply it represents the Corvette's entrance into the mid-engine sports car market. This is a milestone vehicle for Chevrolet, as it has long been rumored and requested by fans of the brand.

Unveiled in July of 2019 the C8 struck people from all over the world, mainly due to its price, it starts at just $59,000! That's the same as a Porsche Cayman, and with nearly 500 horsepower for the base model, that makes it noticeably more powerful than its rival from Stuttgart.

A​s you may have noticed if you own an internet the C8 has gained quite a bit of fanfare, with many people acting as though it's the second coming. People have been calmmoring for the things, with many high-profile YouTubers placing orders. Noticeably the C8 is attracting many people who previously would never have considered a Corvette.

The first year is sold out for 2020,"

Barry Engle, president of North America for General Motors

N​ow, although GM have been flooded with orders for the new C8 they seem to be struggling to push all of them out. Helped in no doubt by the recent UAW strike, GM's President of North America (Barry Engle) has announced that the C8 Stingray is sold out for the 2020 model year. Engle said dealers have been encouraged to sell the new C8 at sticker price and not turn to dealer markups for increased profit. He does, however, note that dealers are independent entities, and that GM cannot force them to price the C8 at sticker.

  • The amount of disposable income in this world is stunning. Entire 2020 production run gone ... before a single copy has come off the line. Bought and paid for ... sight unseen ... not a wheel has even turned.

    • Not paid for. Have to be VIN #s before a bank will finance, and even then they are not paid for.

    • It’s a figure of speech. Point is ... if you believe the article ... they are all spoken for and they haven’t even hit the production line.

  • I wonder how many cars was on the initial 2020 run. Resale will be very high for used ones as well. Great success story.
