Default ZR1 production halt

I was told last year that ZR1 production was halted for 90 days and the line switched to building Z06’s. This makes no sense to me. Anyone know if it’s true?

Incorrect. Check the Corvette Action Center's C7 ZR1 Registry:

https://www.corvetteactioncenter.com...-zr1-registry/

There was no lapse in production except for the week between Christmas and New Years when the BG production plant was shut down for the holidays.

Rob, you may want to start looking for a new safe haven. Starting to see a few of those wackos here as the new C8 crowd phases in. LOL

Why would a mid engine C8 be considered a White Whale?

She is donkey ugly on the outside and even less attractive on the inside. She hates your fossil fueled V8 btw

I'm surprised a thread like this by a noob with 1 post insinuating a 90 day halt in ZR1 production still stands.

Wishing death on someone because you disagree with their ideas. That's a mature and rational response. Reminds me of some guys from the Middle East who have been in the news a lot.
