I thought production was finished on the C7s? Is this fake news, or am I misreading?
This is nothing new, for Corvettes or any automobile. Leftover (2019) C7 Corvettes will sell side-by-side with the new 2020 C8 Corvettes early in the C8 production cycle, until all leftover C7 inventory has been deleted. The author of the article is simply indicating thereís still time to get a FE C7 Corvette. I believe people are reading more into this than there really is.

I'm going to take a pass on giving any credibility to this article... Why? The author has no actual idea of what they are saying. Check the basis of the statements made:
\

From what’s rumored, the new C8 Corvette is expected to jump right into supercar territory, supposedly boasting a new dual-overhead-cam V-8 (versus the traditional pushrod V-8), offering more horsepower at its highest trim than the current ZR1. There’s also a chance that an entry-level, twin-turbo V-6 might be on offer.

Word on the street also suggests that the new Corvette will gain a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic from Tremec and a possible 10-speed automatic co-developed by Ford and Chevrolet. Thus far, there’s no manual transmission in sight.

Solid, take it to the bank info.... *cough*

7-19-19 begins the new era the C8 Mid-Engine Corvette. Dealers will know their allocations for C8 on 7-19-19. Stay Tuned lots of new information coming on the C8 from Chevrolet!!

THANK YOU, Ed.....some civility and honestly in the C8 Community.

Wrong...that money will be going to charity. The buyer knew what he was getting into before the auction. Plus, it was $2.7 million, not $2.4 million.
