The news broke in early December that Sterling Blue would be phased out early before the end of the 2017 model year
For those of you that still may be considering it, this is the final call as your last chance to place an order for a 2017 Corvette in Sterling Blue is February 16th.
Once the orders are in, the final build out for the color will be the week of March 20th.
When we first learned that Sterling Blue would be phased out early, we were speculating that the completion of the paint shop in April 2017 might lead to a new color introduced for late 2017 Model Year production. However, with the Bowling Green Assembly Plant shutting down later this year after the final 2017 models are built in June, it looks like we’ll have to wait a bit longer to find out what the new replacement color will be.
I am also wondering how the Corvette Team will be presenting any new 2018 models at the Bash featuring the replacement color. Let’s hope we’ll be able to see the new color on more than just a fuel door.
