The Corvette Assembly Plant Is Now Building Salable C8 Corvette Stingrays
By Keith Cornett - Aug 29, 2019
*Full Article at LinkFor those of us who have been following the development of the C8 Mid-Engine Corvettes, this is some welcome news! But please! Don’t call your dealer to ask where your car is as these new “Salable” cars aren’t for you and me…yet!
Up until this week, all the 2020 Corvettes we’ve seen from the Reveal, the C8 Dealers Tour, and special events like Corvettes at Carlisle have all had an “EX’ at the end of the VIN. The “EX” cars are considered Experimental and are labeled as such with the “EX” on the VIN. In almost all cases, these cars can’t be sold to the public and will be destroyed once all the testing is completed.
Currently, the C8 Corvettes are being assembled at the plant in limited quantities or “buckets” as they are called when they send a batch of them down the line. Officially, the cars produced for you and me won’t start production until early December. But this is another important threshold that the team has reached in the development cycle.
