The decision to switch the Corvette from its decades-long front-engine setup to a mid-engine design was the right call. But just because production is back to normal doesn’t mean every Corvette option is available. For example, the 5DF Black Trident Wheels, STI Rocker Extensions, and the RZ9 Carbon Fiber Grille Insert are out of stock and the automaker doesn’t know when they’ll be offered.
Looking ahead to the 2022 model year, it appears at least three exterior paint colors are being retired, specifically Sebring Orange (pictured here), Shadow Gray, and Zeus Bronze, due to slow sales. Additional model year packaging changes are expected.
