Everything You Want to Know About the 2020 Corvette, All in One Place.
The arrival of Chevrolet’s eighth-generation, mid-engine Corvette happened during an unprecedented time in modern history – it coincided (most unfortunately) with the arrival of the COVID-19 Coronavirus pandemic. The pandemic, which impacted the entire planet in a matter of just a few, short months, caused the world’s economies to come to a grinding halt, including production of the 2020 Mid-Engine Corvette Stingray.
Production of the mid-engine Corvette had already been delayed until February 2020 when the United Auto Worker (UAW) decided to strike in the fourth quarter of 2019. Because of the strike, the Corvette Assembly Plant in Bowling Green had been delayed in completing the necessary re-tooling to produce the mid-engine Corvette. In turn, this prevented GM from fulfilling early orders for the mid-engine Corvette before the end of 2019.
Would-be owners, many of whom had pre-ordered their cars after putting down sizable deposits to do so, waited patiently for the strike to end and for GM workers to return to work.
