Default 7 months worth of C7/C7Z are unsold

Looks like people stopped buying C7 Corvettes. If your in the market for a C7/C7Z I bet you can get HUGE deals right now. 9000 cars sitting on lots right now unsold.

Yup. No offense to new z buyers but I couldn't see the sense in buying a new z now NOT knowing anything about the c8. And the c8 is almost here. Should've just waited lol

Well congratulations and good for you it's an awesome car. I've had mine for 2 years now it has been flawless. I smile every time I romp on the gas pedal. Hope you got a killer deal.

Well, I bought mine because 650Hp is just stupid fun and I didn't wanna wait around. I also am not an "early adopter" and would wait a little just to see the car shakedown...I think if the C8 is a ME and a nice car I'll probably buy a base model and keep my C7 Z06.

waste away your life anxiously awaiting the future...just enjoy the present!

I never buy the first year of a model change and the C8 is not only a model change but also a platform change....very similar to the 1984 corvette, which was a mess. By purchasing my 2019 Z06 this year I was able to get a great deal and all the bugs are out. People who must own the first I-phone or first Z06 or first C8 are usually people trying to impress others, while people who wait for later years understand that companies are always trying to improve their product so a mature model is better than the first.

i agree essentially with Snampro.

No offense to early adopters, but Id like them to work out the kinks b4 getting a C8. I’ll take the risk that I’m left out for awhile IF they get it right the first time like the Audi R8.

then again I didn’t go 2019 model but a leftover 2017 Z last summer.

Parcival: I did the same thing, mine is a 2016. That's pseudo-early adopter, I guess, but I bought it used, and by then I knew I didn't want the A8. I knew about the heat issues and for the deal I got was willing to mod if necessary...but I'm not a trackstar and I know that. I knew the issues and made an informed decision, if that makes sense.

I bought my C5 at the end of the run, when everyone was scrambling to buy a C6, and I was happy with that decision. I saved a ton of money and had a really nice car.

I didnt say they should wait to buy it, I'm saying wait to see what it looks like. Then get a 2nd year model. Like a 2021.

That's why when people jumped on the 2017 grand sport they had it a year and got a Z. People are impatient has nothing to do with impressing people. You dont get a Corvette to impress lol. For that much coin if you wanna impress you'd get a BMW m5 F90 or dare I say it.......a Porsche 911

It's great people are still buying z06's,but theres a reason why they're still a lot left on the lots. There are still some people who are patient to see a better model coming along.

Well that logic didn't work too well with the C7's. When I had my '14 it was pretty much flawless, no issues to speak of. And let's not forget that it came with the bullet proof A6 as opposed to the A8 found it the later years and we all know how that turned out.

I think 2021 will be the first year of the C8, it may even be a 2022 model.

I hope the C8 Corvette is everything people want it to be and more. I am older and grew up in California with front engine Corvettes and always dreamed to own one. Over the years I have owned many in multiple configurations. The Z06 is my preferred model and I have owned one of each generation since the C5. I am completely happy in probably ending my Corvette experience with the C7 Z06 I got in October. It is the best quality, looking and most powerful Corvette I have ever owned. I have been fortunate to live my dream and happy with my choices.

My 2019 had a $93.5K sticker and my $79K purchase price + warranty + 2 free oil changes + revised shock mapping + free XM for a year + lower interest rate for new versus old car + my desire to drive the break-in miles versus a stranger made my decision easy. I am also probably unique in not waiting for an M/E for the following reasons:

1) I won't buy a first year model for a lot of reasons
2) The M/E with the options I have on my Z is going to cost more than $79K
3) I have a ton of spares for my Z because I road race. Wheels, 2 sets of tires and 2 sets of rotors/pads.

I'll enjoy my 2019 and see what 2022 brings. By then dealers won’t be so proud regarding the M/E’s MSRP, the 1st year gremlins will be well sorted, the aftermarket will catch up and frankly, I'll be ready for something new. I will say that if the M/E comes in at $140K and like the ZR1 is only a couple seconds faster at VIR......well my 2019 might be the bargain of the decade.

If and when the discounts starr flying it'll be a win for for those 9,000 people. IF the C8 is actually a ME car, there's no way i would buy a first year edition. And again back to price, like the ZR1 and into the C8, from a performance aspect there will not be enough of a gap to justify cost. **** same can be said including the C6Z , C6ZR1.

I don't think it might be, I think it is. Just incredible performance for the $$. Great decision IMO!! Best of luck with it!!

Three - four years ago or maybe even more there were rumors of a c8 mid engine. I bought my c7z two years ago. The c8 won’t be out for another year. That’s three freakin years of amazing fun and driving that you’d never get back had you “waited” for the c8.

who cares! Chevy management are absolute MORONS for leaking the ideas and plans of the c8. It drives down interest and tempers excitement once the new car drops because it was “expected”.

The A6 in my 2014 Silverado (same as your A6) detonated after 75K miles and it never shifted well. Now that I have 2018 Sierra with the A8 I notice how much smoother the shifts are. So I guess I am the one guy here who doesn't "know how that turned out". But since 2014, my 2019 Z06 now has added cooling to solve the overheat issue. A pull down latch for the hatch. Added the flat to the steering wheel to make it easier to get in. Fixed the gremlins in the infotainment system that used to make it blank out. Vastly improved the paint and panel alignment, and gotten rid of the imperfections in the panels under the paint. Added front cameras to keep you from crunching the front end. Offer more colors and interior choices....shall I go on??? With the exception of the C3, every model year of every generation has offered a better car than earlier year in the same generation, and every first year of a new generation had far more issues than the last year. Just compare the 6 cylinder 53 and the Fuel injected 62. The 63 327 FI to the 67 427( with the exception of the split window on the 63, which is debatable since many owners complained about visability). The 68 to the 72 ( not the 82... as I said the C3 was the exception due to pollution controls and 5 mile bumpers) The 84 to the 96. The 97 to the 2004. The 2005 to the 2013.....every first year was lower powered, had problems and the most valuable are always the last year of production (again except for the C3)
