It’s the end of 2020 and what a year it has been for Corvette enthusiasts. This was supposed to be the year of the 2020 Corvette, and it still was for the most part. Only, no one could have guessed some of the ups-and-downs the model and its customers would go through. But we remain positive as we head into the new year and if all goes well, we will soon be talking about the next reveal in the C8 Corvette model line-up, the 2022 Z06.
With the end of 2020 in mind, we take a look at our Top 10 Corvette blog posts that were voted by our readers based on pageviews. It’s somewhat of a mystery how some blog posts take off the way they do, but it’s the wide array of interest that the car garners is what makes following the model so much fun. But first here is a quick recap of what happened in 2020 for those of you who were in a Netflix-induced stupor for much of the year:
We started off strong in January with the C8.R Corvette taking to the track for the first time and the first customer ordered 2020 Corvettes rolled off the assembly line. In February, we got our first drive in the 2020 Z51 Coupes at Spring Mountain. Then everything sort of went to hell in March with COVID impacting production and keeping everyone at home. After two months of downtime, the Assembly Plant restarted C8 production at the end of May. The Corvette C8.Rs began their Championship run in July with the 100th IMSA win at Daytona, and production stabilized enough to start the 2nd shift in late August. Despite winning all three IMSA GTLM Championships, Doug Fehan was fired from Corvette Racing. Finally, the Corvette production team would close out the year strong by building 20,368 Corvettes for the model year.
Okay, now on the countdown of our Top 10 Corvette Blog Posts for 2020. Taking a page from our Detroit Bureau, we are actually going to sneak an extra one in there at #11 as we like to offer extra value, and frankly, we could all use some DOUBLE BONUS ENTRIES right now!
