Production at Chevrolet’s Bowling Green factory came to a grinding halt when the coronavirus pandemic struck. As a result, Chevrolet will be building fewer Corvettes this year than initially planned. This means, some prospective buyers will have to wait until 2021.
According to Motor Trend, Chevrolet will not be hiking the price of the 2021 C8 Corvette. Much to the respite of hopeful buyers, the 2021 model will also be priced from $59,995. Prices for the convertible will start at $67,495.
And there’s more good news – the Magnetic Ride Control suspension which is part of the Z51 package will be offered as standard even on the base model Corvette. Bookings for the 2020 C8 Corvette will open in late July 2020.
The production of the C8 Corvette was delayed due to the UAW strike. Cars finally starting rolling off the assembly line in February 2020. As expected, there was huge demand for the model right from when the order books were opened. Chevy had allotted 40,000 units for the United States and deliveries began in spring, this year.
