2012 Corvette Deadlines are Coming and Going Fast!

Article contributed by Dave Salvatore / Kerbeck Corvette

In a post a few weeks ago, I talked about the fast approaching deadlines for the 2012 Corvette model year and introductory information for the 2013 Corvette model year.

Well, deadlines are not always accurate so don’t wait too long. Here’s what I mean. The color Carlisle Blue was scheduled to have its last order date on Thursday 02/09/12. However, when orders opened up that day, there were ZERO Carlisle Blue cars available nationwide. If you didn’t get your order in a week early, you were out of luck!

Each January all eyes on the automotive world focus on the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit. All the major carmakers roll out their latest creations and concepts for the world to see. This year General Motors created a whole new display to highlight their portfolio of products. We grabbed a couple of tickets to the ritzy charity preview event so we could check out all the good stuff before the show opened to the public.

This past summer, Mark Reuss visited the Bowling Green Assembly Center – the home of the Corvette – and announced a significant, multi-million dollar investment to upgrade the plant.

That 2012 Carlisle Blue Corvette Grand Sport Coupe that was spotted on a car hauler a couple of weeks ago seems to have turned up at the Corvette Club of America’s 37th Annual Spring Car Show. The show was held Saturday at Sport Chevrolet in Silver Spring, Maryland. In addition to the celebrity cars on hand was another celebrity, Corvette Product Manager Harlan Charles who took a moment to pose with the new Grand Sport.

New Carlisle Blue Corvette Spotted on Car Hauler

Les Stanford Chevrolet of Dearborn, MI posted these photos Wednesday on the Corvette Forum which show a 2012 Corvette Grand Sport painted in Carlisle Blue.

Check out the larger photos after the jump and then let us know what you think of the new blue 2012 Corvette.

Carlisle Blue to Make Debut on 2012 Corvettes

The retirement of Jetstream Blue Metallic in 2011 leaves the door open for GM to offer a new color for the 2012 Corvette and today we are pleased to bring you its replacement: Carlisle Blue Metallic. The new color is an existing Chevy color called “Ice Blue Metallic” and can be seen on the 2011 Cruze. We think the color reminds us of the 1982 color called Silver Blue Metallic or the Light Blue Metallic offered in 1984-85.
