It’s been approximately two and a half weeks since the Corvette Assembly Plant has restarted production of the 2020 Corvette Stingray so I wanted to provide a quick update on what we know at this point.
The Corvette Assembly Plant restarted production on Tuesday, May 26th, and on that first day back, a total of 15 Corvettes were completed. Over the course of the last two weeks, daily production has steadily ramped up with the plant completing 76 new Corvettes on Thursday, June 11th. We are estimating that since resuming production the assembly plant has built around 700 new Corvettes.
These Corvettes are under a quality control hold just as they were when the plant first started 2020 production, but we expect that the shipping of these Corvettes will happen relatively soon. Keep checking back as we’ll keep you updated on that front.
For those you waiting for more news about your 2020 Corvettes, new TPW (Target Production Weeks) have started going out with owners confirming mid-July dates. We’ve been keeping our eye on the Kerbeck Order Update Page and are now starting to see orders with a 7/13/2020 TPW. So far those are all for the Stingray Coupes with the Convertibles still waiting for their starting dates.
So that’s where we stand since the 2020 Corvettes have resumed. I think the next couple of weeks will provide critical data for the Corvette Team to know how they are doing moving forward into Summer and the start of the second shift on July 6th.
For those of you with orders, we know that that the wait is driving some of you nuts, so hang in there because each day that passes is one day you are closer to driving your new Corvette.
