Early this morning Chevrolet dealers released the latest consensus deck showing production updates for all of GM’s lineup.

According to page 8 of the document, the start of 2023 Corvette production will begin on Monday, May 16th instead of the previously planned May 9th date.

While the end of production date for the 2022 Corvette isn’t mentioned, it’s safe to assume that 2022 Corvette production will be extended to Friday, May 13th, due to the one-week shutdown of the Bowling Green Corvette Assembly plant on March 21st.


Component constraints continue to hamper 2022 Corvette production and are outlined below:

  • Rear Park Assist deleted due to chip shortage since 1/24
      • – Builds starting April 11th will get RPA functional
  • LPO: 5ZZ High Wing Spoiler available
  • ISSUE: Microchip shortage affecting FE2 & FE4 suspension limiting availability
  • ACTIONS TAKEN: Allocated constraint:
      • – Z51 Performance Package constraint
          • Z51 & FE4 constraint linked together via ADS (FE4 requires Z51)
      • – Non Z51 constraint (base mLSD constraint)
  • 0% constraint on FE2 to allow volume to be assigned to FE4 & Z51

2023 Corvette Stingray Production Updates

  • Ordering available through OWB & Visualizer: April 7th
  • SORP: May 16th
  • 70th Anniversary package available at launch
  • ZZ3: Engine Appearance & Lighting Package not available at SORP

2023 Corvette Z06 Production Updates

Ordering for the 2023 Corvette Z06 is currently scheduled for “late Spring” and remains tentative at this time.
