Zora’s dream of bringing a mid-engine Corvette to market has finally been fulfilled!

Chevrolet is celebrating the Start of Regular Production (SORP) of the 2020 Corvette Stingray today and they shared this photo of a Black mid-engine Coupe on the Corvette assembly line in Bowling Green, KY.

The car is the VIN 001 Corvette that was purchased by Rick Hendrick for $3 million last month at Barrett-Jackson. Chevrolet told us previously that the first mid-engine Corvette produced for customers would be a Black Coupe with the Z51 package.

Here is Chevrolet’s tweet celebrating the start of C8 production from this afternoon:


Chevrolet is saying that initial vehicle shipments to dealers are expected to begin in late February or early March.

Congratuations to all those who worked on the new Corvette to get it to this point and we are excited for all of our friends that have a new C8 Corvette on order. The new Corvette Stingray is a grand slam home run for Chevy and from it, we will see a paradigm shift in how people will view mid-engine sports cars in the future.

And with VIN 001 coming of the Corvette assembly line today, that future is now!

Update
Chevrolet also offered up this trailer for a two-part documentary of the C8 Corvette’s development called Revolution. The documentary will be released at a future date.

  1. Kinda makes one wonder if that is, in fact, the first production C8, what are all those delivery bagged C8’s in the back storage lot of the Assembly Plant? Are those ALL, “EX” vins? Or are the photos shown on this web site way out of sequence?

  2. Knowing that production is 2 months behind schedule how many 2020 C8’s will be produced?
