UAW negotiations have made many production schedules unclear, especially with manufacturers’ transitioning from finishing production of the 2023 model year vehicles to starting output for 2024. However, despite some minor delays, things are still relatively on schedule, with the end of production of the 2023 model year C8 Corvette dated Friday, September 15th. Then, the start of 2024 models started this week, though details on the specific date are unclear.

2024 C8 Corvette Production: Details

Since the 2023 C8 Corvette received some additional production days, it’s unclear what the total production count for the year comes to. According to Corvette Blogger, Harlan Charles confirmed the total of 53,448 at the NCM Anniversary Show two weeks ago, but the exact count was still waiting to be confirmed. The record for most Corvettes produced in a single year was achieved in 1979 when the St.Louis assembly plant built 53,807 units for the year. The 2023 Corvette represents the most made in Bowling Green and just a few hundred units shy of breaking the record-setting year, based on the figures revealed two weeks ago. This year may set a new record for Corvette production.

That means that the 2023s will go down in Corvette history as one of the most successful years for the car, with the highlights being both the introduction of the new Z06 and its model year that celebrated the 70th Anniversary of America’s Favorite Sports Car. However, the popularity of the C8 Corvette is just beginning, as General Motors has some even more spectacular products on the way. For starters, we have the 2024 Corvette E-Ray, which is bound to turn some heads for the more eco-friendly buyers out there, not to mention that it makes for the perfect year-round car with all-wheel drive added to the mix. We also have at least two more trims for the C8 Corvette on the way, which are set to send even the jaw-dropping C8 Z06 to the sidelines.

As for current production, the plant remains open for business, with any Corvettes completed already on the way to their destinations. On top of that, NCM R8C deliveries will continue even after the UAW contract expired.

Zac's love for cars started at a young age, after seeing the popular Eleanor from Gone In 60 Seconds. From there, fascination and enthusiasm blossomed and to this day the Ford Mustang remains a favorite. His first job started out detailing cars, but also provided the opportunity to work on restoration including an 1968 Ford Mustang, Pontiac Firebird, and a C3 Corvette, though he left that job before further work and experience could be had. From there, he was a detailer at a car dealership before quitting that job to try and finish college.

Much of his free time while studying was spent watching YouTube videos regarding new cars, or off-roading. 4WD247 is a personal favorite channel which rekindled a dying flame in car enthusiasm, now tailored towards trucks and SUVs and the fun that can be had building up an overlanding rig, and going on adventures, though, that chapter remains unwritten for the time being.
