It’s Highest Production Count In 7 Years

We’ve recently looked at the percentages for the production of the 2023 Corvette Z06, which revealed that just 6% of Corvettes produced so far for this model year had been 2023 Z06s, with 94% being Stingrays. Now, we can take a look at the numbers as Corvette Blogger has recently revealed that production counts have just surpassed the 40,000 mark for Corvettes produced for the 2023 model year. It’s the highest number since 2016, and that’s with a few stops due to supply chain issues, weather events, and other interruptions.

In short, the mid-engined gamble is paying off.

2023 C8 Corvette Production: Details

As of last Friday, 40,454 Corvettes were produced. This information comes from Roger Kiel on Facebook, and if they are to believe, a total of 33,786 2023 Corvettes are Stingrays, and 3,593 are 70th Anniversary Stingrays. By comparison, 2,572 2023 C8 Corvette Z06s make up the number, while just 503 are 70th Anniversary models of the latest addition to America’s Sports Car (or supercar).

That figure is nearly double the amount of C8 Corvettes produced for the 2020 model year, which was 20,368. It’s the highest production number since 2016 when 40,689 Corvettes were built. For the Stingray, a more significant percentage of the cars produced are the Coupes which is interesting as the opposite can be said for the Z06, with a more substantial number being convertibles.

That said, 42% of buyers that opted for the Stingray Coupe purchased the 2LT trim, while 55% selected the 3LT trim for the convertible. The top colors for the Stingray are Torch Red, Arctic White, Black, and Red Mist. By comparison, Black is the most popular color for the Z06, while Torch Red takes second place. We’re in an exciting time for the Corvette, with production reaching outstanding numbers and new models well on the way, including the 2024 Corvette E-Ray, the yet-to-be-revealed ZR1, and even the Zora, which is expected to combat some of the hybrid hypercars on the market. Finally, there’s an even bigger twist: an all-electric Corvette sedan that will take on the likes of the Tesla Model S, Porsche Taycan, and Audi e-Tron GT.

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.
