From Tadge Jeuchter and Harlan Charles presentations ...

2020 MY
  • The 2020 MY will be extended to build as many existing 2020 orders as possible, but they may not be able to build all of the 2020 MY orders that have been submitted
  • Supplier production ability will ultimately determine how many of these they will be able to built
2021 MY
  • 2021 MY orders will probably start being accepted in late July 2020
  • 2021 MY base price on the coupe and convertible will remain unchanged, but there may be some changes in options pricing
    • New Color for 2021 - Silver Flare Metallic - Tadge described as having the appearance of "liquid metal"
    • New Color for 2021 - Red Mist Tint Coat Metallic - Tadge described as a "fiery" red and has ordered his 2021 CTF car in this color
    • FE2 Magnetic Selective Ride Control available on non-Z51

More from Welburn:

Assuming that the report of a November 2nd model year change proves accurate, here is how we get to 20,000 Corvettes produced during the 2020 model year:
  • Normal build rate is 11.5 cars per hour.
  • For each 8-hour shift, 92 cars can be built.
  • Each shift can build 460 cars per week.
  • There are 22 weeks between now and November 2.
  • In 22 weeks, one shift can build 10,120 cars.
  • That leaves 7,000 cars for a second shift to complete, which would require the second shift running for 15 weeks.
  • The second shift only needs to start by July 20 in order for the 17,000 number to be achieved.
Assuming there are no further COVID-19 related disruptions, including supplier-related disruptions, 20,000 Corvettes built for the 2020 model year definitely seems attainable.
