[Weekly News Recap] Top 10 C8 Dealers, ’24 Order Guide Released, Production Numbers
I've curated all the top Corvette news from around our community
The 2021 Corvette travels down the assembly line of GM's Bowling Green Manufacturing Plant.
I’m in all the corners of the Corvette Internet world, and I’ve done the legwork for you. Here are the top 3 stories from the Corvette community, especially relevant if you are thinking about pulling the trigger on a new Stingray.
1) Top 10 Corvette Dealers
Perhaps you are just curious, or maybe looking to buy a new C8 and want to buy from one of the top dealers. In either case, here are the top dogs when it comes to C8 sales for the first half of 2023. It’s reported that all of these top 10 dealers sell at MSRP. Thanks to our friends at the Corvette Blogger who put this nice chart together. The most interesting fact revealed is that of the 17,029 Corvettes delivered from 1/01/23 to 6/30/23, a whopping 2,518 (15%) were purchased from one of these Chevrolet dealerships.
2) 2024 Order Guide Released
If you are kicking tires or looking to buy a 2024 Corvette, this guide will give you all the latest updates for the 2024 model year, as well as what options can be ordered.

Past production is usually a good indicator of how smoothly future production will be, and Roger Kiel from the C8 Corvette Owners (And Friends) Facebook page is our go-to guy for C8 production numbers. One of the encouraging numbers I noticed was the 48 Z06s built on July 11th, up from an average of about 39 the last week of June, which is good news if you are waiting for yours. On a side note, if you are looking for an active space in social media to interact with fellow C8 owners, the C8 Owners (And Friends) Facebook page will probably work for you.
