Would you wait six months to take delivery of your 2014 Corvette Stingray?
Well, you may not have a choice.
CarBuzz.com is reporting that demand for the incredibly popular C7 is apparently going to be so high that General Motors is now warning customers that they may have to wait up to half a year to get behind the wheel of their dream cars.
It should really come as no surprise that demand is so high. After all, the Corvette is priced so reasonably that it’s tens of thousands less than the car that GM engineers targeted, the Porsche 911, and we haven’t seen anything but positive, glowing reviews in the media.
Some customers reportedly are willing to pay $5,000 to $20,000 to reach the top spot on the delivery list at some Chevy dealerships, though we would invite potential Stingray buyers to contact the dealers on our blog who promise they will sell the cars at MSRP.
The wait could grow even longer, though, as an unidentified Chevrolet marketing manager in the report warns that overseas demand from Asia, Europe, and the Middle East appears to be just as strong as it is in the U.S.
