A short time ago, GM North America President Steve Carlisle issued the following notice to dealers regarding market adjustments

With the introduction and continued demand for the C8 Corvette, it's been all roses for a lot of Chevy dealers looking to cash in on the feeding frenzy over the car.

With the all new 2023 Corvette Z06 set to enter production this summer, GM North America President, Steve Carlisle has now put those dealers on notice with the following statement:

'66 convertible,
I am on the wait for a 2022 (should be soon as I'm #57 as of Jan 17th 2022) and on the Z06 list (I hope I'm alive when my number comes up ... lol). This news from the GM pres is good to hear, although by having my deposit(s) with one of the best Corvette dealers, the idea of falling victim to any level of price gouging has never even entered my mind.

I know there a\ARE some Stealerships which engage in these unethical practices.....like the letter states, it casts a dark shadow on all dealerships and the brand.

yep total BS !! I would never buy anything that's marked up - I will pay invoice only!! I remember back in 08 some dealers were doing that for the pace cars and the 427 editions !! but not 1/4 more!! omg just not right

Rick Hendrick In Charleston Sc. Wants a 10k over the list if you want to order 2022, and $25k over for a 2023 Z06. A Chevrolet dealer in Pawleys Island SC. Sale lady Kim said I can order the last one they can get a 2022 for $25k over the list. What a rip-off. I have bought corvettes starting with my first a 1969 orange stingray and have 4 other ones, and now have a 2014 C-7 and neve paid over the list. Thank God I am on Cris Croswell's list for a 2023 at the list. price.

Unfortunatel, I’m guessing Rick Hendricks is above the law in this respect. BS, but he’s a big dog when it comes to dealing with the General.
