The 2020 Chevrolet Corvette has officially been delayed until February 2020, reports Autoblog. Chevrolet confirmed the news to the outlet recently, substantiating reports from last month that claimed production of the C8 Corvette would have to be pushed back because of the UAW strike.

At the beginning of last month, reports indicated that production of the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette would be delayed because of the then-ongoing UAW strike. The 40-day strike meant that Chevy was working on getting back on track for production of the C7 Corvette and still had to retool its plant to manufacture the new Corvette. These things stopped the automaker from reaching its original goal of getting vehicles to customers before the end of 2019.

With production for the C8 Corvette set to begin next February, buyers should expect their vehicles to arrive shortly after.

The new timeline will see GM’S Bowling Green plant continue to work on orders for the C7 Corvette before taking a short break to retool the facility for the C8 Corvette. Chevrolet hasn’t stated how long retooling the plant will take, but we can’t imagine too long if February is the new deadline.

Chevrolet fans have been looking forward to a mid-engine Corvette for years, so a few more months of waiting shouldn’t be too much of a problem.
