As always there is a lot of C8 noise out there, here is what I can confirm.
  • General Motors will begin reopening its Corvette plant on May 26, the restart at the Bowling Green plant will be gradual and will focus on new worker safety protocols that were put into place due to the coronavirus pandemic and there is no confirmation as of yet the second shift will begin.

  • 2020 Model year will build out in October 2021 C8 to begin production November (I can't officially confirm this yet... but you can go ahead and put this on the board!)

Gossip
  • 2021 Chevrolet Corvette To Get Two New Interior Color Combinations - At this point the 2021 Cars which have an available order guide in Canada are the 2021 Camaro and 2021 Spark. (For the record I am not denying this, I just don't have any evidence to confirm it at this time)

To any of my C8 clients who may be reading this and have an order status of 3000, please be on the lookout for my phone call in the next few days, and to anyone reading this with additional questions please feel free to reach out.​

If you want my honest opinion about your post:
- Mats appear to be very poorly photoshopped
- Verbiage describing them is incorrect
- Font used for internal documents appears to be forged and inconsistent with fonts normally used for internal documents

Again this is just my opinion, I have been wrong before and guarantee I will be wrong again.

The Weathertech matts were also featured on a YouTube vid with Rick Conti. So I think maybe legit.

I didn't hear him say "WeatherTech" in his vid...
You are right, Rick did not say they were made by WT. they sure look like their laser measured handywork. I have WT floor Mats in my truck. So an assumption for sure.

Hi Jeff, unfortunately you are not my sales rep. Chris M is. He's a nice kid, but lacks communication skills with his customers. Any info on when a guy like me might here from anyone. I'm at status 3000 with an original TPW of April 6th, which is now July 20th for a convertible.

He has already posted that a few days ago. I would not take anything he or she posts too seriously as it is unfortunately normally random nonsense.
