Newsflash...they will all sell! We’re still way down from peak inventory in 2016. C8 around the corner so stand by for 20%++ off remaining stock.

With the 2019 version of my car at 52K... And my car worth 30K. I see someone happy to buy mine in a few months.
There are no differences from 2015-2019 on a 1LT. No one not on this forum knows the difference between a base and a Z06.
They are all just Corvettes. You can only drive 55 on the highways.

Model and option level is coded into VIN. Not rocket science. I would say most C7 buyers are pretty knowledgeable.

Meh Same as 1996, same as 2004, same as 2013. So goes the ebb and flow of Corvette production. Prediction....People will pay above MSRP to be the first to own a C8. First year production will be at or near record levels. People will bitch about first year quality issues. Subsequent year production will fall off except for blips due to the intro of higher performing sub-models.

Many of us want to get to 55 as fast as possible hence ZO6 or ZR1

Every single Corvette on a dealer's lot is a "sold car." The dealer is GM's customer. The dealer bought and paid for it. GM does not build Corvettes on spec. The dealers buy on spec.

So I misspoke. The dealers are not ordering a Corvette like what I want.

2LT Convertible, M7, arctic white / kalahari, kalahari top, mag ride and performance exhaust. You get a gold star if you can find one, new or used. I've been looking. If any dealer has one they are hiding it well.

Corvette sales have always been seasonal. Time to worry is sometime around the middle of March if sales don't pick up. Mid October through Mid March are Corvette sales doldrums. You don't want to try and sell any road worthy Corvette in that time frame unless you are willing to take a financial hit. It isn't that Customers are choosing some other vehicle, it just means they aren't even looking for a vehicle until the weather changes. If they plan on trading they will wait until they are able to get their car out of storage first.
