If you’ve been thinking about placing an order for the 2016 Chevrolet Corvette, then you better act fast because production for Chevrolet’s iconic sports car will be ending sooner than many people might think.

Production for 2016 Corvettes will cease as of June 24th. That means prospective buyers have until May 12th to decide whether to place their orders for either the Stingray or Z06 model. Consumers will also have fewer exterior color options as Chevrolet plans to phase out both Laguna Blue and Shark Grey.

Rick ‘Corvette’ Conti reported that production for the 2017 Corvette Stingray will also begin on June 24th, which could infer the ’17 Stingray won’t be much different from the outgoing model, since production is starting and finishing on the same day for the ’16 and ’17 Stingrays. Consumers can begin placing orders on May 26th for the ’17 Stingray.

Conti also reported that production for the ’17 Corvette Z06 will not begin until September 5th, so Chevy has more than two months to ponder potential updates and design changes. Corvette fans can begin placing orders for the ’17 Corvette Z06 on July 28th.

Any major updates or design changes for 2017 Corvettes are scheduled to be announced on April 28th at the yearly National Corvette Museum Bash event.
