As a sales representative at a Top 20 Corvette dealership, sometimes information crosses your desk about the behind-the-scenes actions of the manufacturer you represent.
In this case, Chevrolet salesman Marcus Veiga of Estero Bay Chevrolet in Florida recently posted on the Facebook Group Corvette C8 World that “for those interested in on Z06, July 2021 we will be able to tell you more about this amazing car. Z06 is not a project anymore!”
After our friend John picked up on Veiga’s comments and posted them to the MidEngineCorvetteForum.com, we’ve seen the post get some legs as it’s beginning to make the rounds of the automotive blogs. Some of those headlines out there are even proclaiming “We now know when the Corvette Z06 will be revealed.”
Here’s a screengrab of his comments:
In fact, there are a lot of interesting stories out there about when the Z06 will be revealed, but right now all are speculation. There are also posts on the various forums and Facebook groups about the Z06 potentially being delayed. We even heard a rumor that the Z06 will come out in 2022 but as a 2023 model. The point is there are a lot of people saying various things and most of us (myself included) just don’t yet know what the plans are.
And that’s okay.
Speculation about the car we love is fun, and we all do it. When it’s something we like or news we prefer to hear, we want to believe it and make it real. But until the General steps up and puts that date on the calendar, it’s all just speculation.
July 2021 would make sense for a Fall 2021 roll-out as a new 2022 model year, and it tracks exactly what Chevrolet did two years ago with the Stingray. But remember that reveal was supposedly pushed back a couple times because the car wasn’t ready. So don’t take it to the bank just yet.
