Many customers who ordered the 2023 Corvette Z06 are experiencing delivery delays due to ongoing production issues amid parts shortages. Customers confirm that they still haven’t received the exact delivery date, even though they paid for the machine a long time ago.
According to CorvetteBlogger.com, hundreds of 2023 Corvette Z06s are sitting outside the Bowling Green assembly plant waiting for parts. As a result, many customers who ordered their cars were stuck with the production code 3800, which indicates that the car has been assembled but is waiting to be shipped. Concerns have increased recently with the UAW strike further complicating matters.
Supply chain issues related to carbon fiber parts are the main reason for these delays. Demand for the Z07’s carbon fiber aero package, exterior package, and carbon fiber interior package has reportedly outstripped supply.
One customer reported on an innovative solution Chevrolet used to solve a parts shortage. Faced with a long delay in the delivery of the Z06, the customer noted that Chevrolet has decided to release the car without certain carbon fiber features, offering part discounts to make up for the missing features. This improvement allowed the manufacturer to speed up shipments to other customers.
In addition, to deal with ongoing parts shortages, Chevrolet has reportedly delayed production of 2024 Z06 models by two weeks, diverting existing parts to fit the 2023 models.
The first batch of 2023 Corvette Z06 went on sale in September 2022.
