There's Another Chevy Corvette Production Problem

Sports Cars / 4 Comments

We're real sorry if you just put in an order.

We'd love to see a lot of things happen again in the auto industry. The return of palatable faces to BMW models, for example. This, however, is not something anyone wants to see again. Corvette production is stopping. Yes, again. This comes hot on the heels of Chevrolet removing Magnetic Ride Control from the 2022 'Vette lineup. Thankfully, that issue has since been remedied. However, parts are still a bit hard to come by at GM right now.

Unfortunately, that's exactly what's leading to the cessation of production this time around. The brand simply doesn't have all the pieces of the puzzle for the Chevrolet Corvette right now. Of course, that's largely due to ongoing supply shortages the world over as a result of COVID-19 and the conflict in Ukraine.

Sources indicate that particular options and parts for the Corvette are also to blame. In addition to the aforementioned MagRide issue, the Black Trident wheels, spoilers, and tire pressure sensors are particularly hard for Chevy to get off the assembly line right now. Obviously, the most important of those are the tire pressure sensors. Pushing out a car without them would lead to huge mechanical issues that buyers would certainly raise a stink over.

As of right now, GM doesn't have an idea when things will normalize for Corvette production. The model has seemingly been cursed by the gods, with tornados and fires shutting down production previously. The brand has also had to stop production due to the chip shortage before.

Of course, this latest hiccup in 'Vette production will also affect the production of the 2023 Corvette Z06 as well. It's hard to imagine a more hotly-anticipated American sports car since, well, the last Z06. For now, at least, the Corvette will continue to be a rare commodity here in America. Industry experts predict things to stay scarce industry-wide until at least 2023, so those holding orders for both the base 'Vette and the Z06 will surely be in for quite the wait.
