First Corvette rolls off the line

This is big for Chevy

Production for the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette is officially underway. Chevy marked the occasion with a tweet (how else?) from the assembly plant in Bowling Green, Ky.

Late last year, Chevy announced that production would be delayed until February 2020 due to the UAW strike. It looks like that prediction was right on time, as we see production C8s on the first Monday of the month. Hallelujah.

Those folks who were among the first to order their 2020 Corvettes should see them begin to filter into dealers as Chevy builds up inventory over the coming weeks. That also means we get to start seeing them on the streets. It may be winter time in the north, but temperatures have been warm enough that taking out the brand-new Corvette doesn't seem like the worst idea in the world — it does ship with all season tires as standard after all.

The tweet doesn't make it clear that the Corvette pictured is the actual first production C8, but we've asked Chevy for photos of that car. The vehicle in question is headed to Rick Hendrick, who bought VIN No. 1 at the 2020 Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale auction.

I really wish I liked the side of that car more, but the botched side styling, the fact that it looks like a damn Ferrari mixed with a Lamborghini mixed with an NSX...only not as good as any of those, and it's mid-engined...which is decidedly un-American (if you ask me), just puts it out of my wheelhouse.

Too bad, they finally fixed the interior, and the performance is fantastic for the dollar.

I bet the ZO6 will look pretty awesome. They always have to make the base model look a little wimpy.

For its price, the specs of this car are incredible. Can't wait to start seeing these on the road.

You are the first person i I've seen express that opinion. Many don't like the rear. A few don't like the front. But everyone agrees the side profile looks exotic and beautiful.

I agree that the side could look better, conveniently, they already know what to do.

Looks nothing like a Corvette, and the side intake is way too big for the rest of the car.

Agree, better for damn sure, especially how the front matches it.

Can you say Ford GT40 and Ford GT? Pontiac Fiero. That's 3 off the top of my head.

Quick lap, on par with a base 911 but i was expecting more originally. I do expect the z06 and zr1 to be complete monsters.

You are welcome!

Only if I got a decent DD. I daily the HC & I don't see the C8 as a good winter car I would not be happy if I drove the Acura every day & I really don't wanna make big payments for a car that sits half the year again.
