Cyber Gray has been a part of two major launches with Corvette. Back in 2008 the Corvette community got its first look at Cyber Gray when Chevrolet previewed the 2009 Corvette ZR1 in Jetstream Blue and an all new color, Cyber Gray Metallic.
Again, when Chevrolet wanted to introduce a new model, the all-new 2014 Corvette Stingray, they went to Torch Red and and then brought back Cyber Gray.
During its run from 2009 through 2013 Cyber Gray was a very popular color, usually being in the top 3 colors. After using it in the launch of the C7 Corvette in 2014, Chevrolet has decided to retire the color and replace it with a new color, Shark Gray for the 2015 model year. Shark Gray is being used to preview the all new 2015 Corvette Z06.
As is usual when a color is being discontinued, Chevrolet will have an “early build out” for Cyber Gray. That means they will stop building the color sooner than the rest of the model year. The reason for that is so that they do not run into a situation where the assembly plant or their suppliers run out of the color or have paint or pre painted parts left over.
With that in mind, GM announced that this week’s order cycle (cars ordered from 04/24/14 through 04/29/14) will be the last opportunity to order Cyber Gray 2014 Corvette Stingrays. While Kerbeck Corvette has ordered extra cars in that color to make it through the end of the model year, this will be the last chance to place your own custom order for a Cyber Gray Stingray.
In the past, when a color is in the last week of ordering due to an early build out, the color was constrained and not all orders could be placed. So, if you want to attempt to order a Cyber Gray Stingray coupe or convertible contact Dave Salvatore at Kerbeck Corvette as soon as possible. Orders and deposit would have to be received by Tuesday 04/29/14 to have a chance of being accepted.
