The end of the 7th generation Corvette is coming fast and now we have some actual dates that you should be aware of.
We knew that by watching the dealers, we would get a sense of when actual C7 Corvette production would come to a close and it looks like the countdown clock to the end of the C7s has already started.
First up, the last order cycle for the 2019 ZR1 closed at the end of May which means that the end date to custom order the 755-hp Corvette has already passed. There might be a few built cars still out there from deals that fell through, but it looks like ZR1 production is nearly wrapped up.
Today (June 6th) starts the final order cycle to build a C7 Convertible with a Sold order required to be in GM’s order bank by Monday evening (6/10).
Dealers can submit Sold orders for the C7 Coupe through July 18th, ironically the date of the C8’s reveal. However, Sold orders submitted by dealers without allocation will only be accepted through June 25th.
Keep in mind that these are for placing sold customer orders for 2019 Corvettes. Dealer inventories of 2019 Corvette are still plentiful and so if you can’t order the car of your dreams, there’s a good chance that most of your wishlist can be fulfilled with a car that has already been built.
We are still waiting on final confirmation on when the C7 Corvette production will officially end and that should become clearer in the next few weeks.
The date for the final C7 order was originally listed as June 23 and it has been corrected to read June 25th. However, that date is only for dealers submitting Sold orders without allocation. Dealers can place sold orders through July 18th providing they have allocation. Right now, any sold order in the system gets automatically picked up whether the dealer has allocation or not. That ends on June 25th. After that cutoff, Dealers can still place a sold order through July 18, but it won’t be picked up unless the dealer has allocation.
