After two postponements, production of the 2023 Corvette Stingray looks to have finally got underway.
Production was initially meant to start earlier this month. That date was then pushed out a week before that date was also pushed out a week.
However, GM Authority now reports that Stingray production has finally begun at General Motors’ Kentucky factory.
However, only the 2023 Stingray enters production, as the Corvette Z06 is still yet to have a start time.
The 2023 model year Stingray has a 6.2-litre naturally aspirated V8 mated with an eight-speed dual-clutch transmission. That’s good enough for 360kW of power and 630Nm of torque.
New Zealand is already confirmed to be receiving the 2023 model Stingray.
It’s believed that between the arrival of the Stingray and the C8 Z06, Chevrolet will also be launching the first-ever hybrid Corvette.
The hybridized version is likely to become the first Corvette ever to offer all-wheel drive (the Stingray and Z06 are rear-wheel-drive). An all-electric Corvette will follow, meaning the current iteration Stingray and Corvette could be the last to come with a traditional internal combustion engine.
