Countdown to the C8's California Debut

Invites have been sent out for the Corvette's reveal in Orange County, California to automotive publications. July 18, 2019 is when it all goes down!

In the invite, Chevrolet names Orange County, California, as the location for the mid-engine C8 Corvette‘s debut. The location puts to rest rumors of where the car will debut, though we heard months ago a standalone event was highly likely. The rumors came after the new sports car missed out on a chance to wow the final winter showing of the North American International Auto Show in Detroit.

As for reasons why Chevrolet and GM chose California, it’s not explicitly clear. However, Orange County is an affluent area with plenty of high-end supercars parked in driveways and garages. It could be Chevrolet wants to take the fight directly into enemy territory with the C8 Corvette’s debut. Other than an educated guess, we can’t speculate any further about the California decision.
