General Motors design chief Michael Simcoe told a large crowd attending the Concours d'Elegance of America in MI that he thought the company had already hit first-year production numbers with orders. At the Concours d'Elegance of America, he made it clear that the auto is selling extremely well. At least one executive claims the new supercar's first year of production is almost sold out already.
"I think the orders have already hit the first year of production numbers", Simcoe said when addressing a large crowd around the vehicle.
When asked to elaborate on the orders, Simcoe told the news outlet that the C8 was "nearly sold out".
Chevrolet has been accepting online registrations for the 2020 Corvette online since it was introduced a couple weeks ago.
The 2020 Chevrolet Corvette could be considered one of the most significant automotive announcements this year. "It's so close that it's bound to be sold out soon", he said.
Corvette sales and production numbers have been erratic over the years.
How many people have already registered to buy the C8?
The vehicle will apparently be selling out for the 2020 production year very soon.
The eighth-generation Chevrolet Corvette Stingray is the first mid-engine version in the model's history, and promises supercar performance at a bargain basement price less than $60,000.
Chevy has offered no indication of how many C8 mid-engine Corvette it will build for the model first year of production. Stay tuned to see if GM announces the official numbers of the 2020 C8's production or if they announce it's been officially sold out.
