The 2020 Chevy C8 Corvette’s Debut is a Day Away!

We are quite literally on the eve of the 2020 Chevy C8 Corvette’s Debut, and we’re hoping that you’re as pumped up for the big day as we are. Here at Top Speed HQ, we’re preparing to make our journey from the east coast all the way to Orange County, California to attend the show, so we wanted to prepare you for what’s about to come, fill you in on just how you can watch the debut from the comfort of your own home, and recap all of our coverage on the all-new C8 Corvette so far. So, with that in mind, you can check out the live stream on Chevy’s official “Next-Gen Corvette” webpage. you can open it now and leave it there if you want – there’s even a doomsday clock there to remind of how close you are to the day Chevy makes history. If you don’t want to stretch the wait by watching every second tick by (I don’t blame you) make sure you get there around 7:30 pm PDT or 10:30 pm EST when the live coverage begins – that’s a half-hour after the hanger doors of the venue open and a half-hour before the official show begins.

GM is flying certain journalists and current Corvette owners out to Orange County, California to witness the C8 make its big debut. The event itself is going to happen in the coolest of places – The Tustin Blimp Hangars in Tustin California. The event will also include a small gallery of previous-generation corvettes showcased by their owners, the C8’s debut, and then there will be a “Next-Generation Expo” that really has us curious. However, I must warn you that it’s a private event, so don’t even try showing up. Word has it that those who were able to buy tickets actually paid upward of $15,000 to go, so it’s not likely that you’ll be able to sneak in.

With that out of the way, stay tuned to Top Speed as we’ll be hosting coverage of the event shortly after its completion and we’ll have plenty of pictures and video to show you in the coming days. Check out our Facebook page for a few live updates from the event and be sure to comment and let us know what you think!

Until then, you can browse our July timeline of events and news surrounding the C8 Corvette, and there’s a link a little further down where you can check out every bit of coverage we have on Chevy’s new supercar.
