C8Tracker : For All Your C8 Corvette Data Nerd Needs

/ Home

Hi.

This site was designed to gather information about C8 Corvettes and make it available for Corvette enthusiasts. The information on this website came from downloading and analyzing the window stickers for new Corvettes. The site checks for new window stickers every day, but just as cars are not built every day, window stickers are also not created every day. The window stickers for each car typically becomes available within a few days of the car being produced in the factory. Keep checking back for the latest data to be added to the site.

This site is actively developed every day, so it is constantly getting more data and features.

The window sticker data is publicly available information that is collected and presented on our website. This website is not affiliated with General Motors, Chevrolet, or any of their dealers. We do not have any dealers or GM/Chevrolet employees feeding us information.


/ Daily Dashboard Improvements

Posted on 2/22/24, 2:08 AM

I think I have the new Daily Dashboard pretty well dialed in at this point. For most days it appears to be coming up with accurate numbers. The only exceptions are when the plant is closed for a holiday, or maybe when the plant runs on a Saturday. It's difficult to have it account for those oddball days since I really don't know when that is going to happen ahead of time (and my insistence on automating this entirely). Holidays seem to be tricky because while they may not build new cars on a particular holiday, sometimes window stickers will be released on those days. So that creates some challenges in these calculations. But holidays like that aren't super common so its not a big deal. I think about 95% of days this dashboard is showing accurate data.

I have a new script that will run tomorrow a little after 11am. It is simply designed to find the highest VIN window sticker for each model as early as possible in the day. The goal here is to get this Daily Production dashboard populated as early as possible. Once that script is done the normal daily update will kick off.

Right now, if there is no production for any given day, that day just isn't displayed in the table. I do want to go back and make it add those days and just report 0's for the data, but its not a critical feature or anything so I'm not sure when I'll get to it.

I think for now this dashboard is pretty solid.



/ New Daily Dashboard Available

Posted on 2/12/24, 11:08 PM

I just threw together a new dashboard called the Daily Dashboard. The goal here was pretty simple... make a page that mimics some of the spreadsheets that other people maintain and make available... but completely automate it since I don't have time for all that manual work haha. It's working pretty well, theres some bugs I need to work thru, but I decided to make it available since its still plenty useful in its current state.

It should be pretty self explanatory. It attempts to use the window stickers to estimate hoe many cars are built each day. Rather than count the window stickers like the other dashboards do, this tries to find the lowest and highest VINs that were built each day, then from there calculates how many cars were built. I have some other ideas to implement, but this is the basic functionality so far.

Find it on the menu in the Dashboards section... it's called Daily.



/ E-Ray Dashboard Now Available

Posted on 2/11/24, 10:12 PM

Tonight I set up the dashboard page for the E-Ray.  The window stickers for the E-Ray really haven't started coming out yet (just cars built for GM so far, not obvious customer cars).  It's been a few weeks since E-Ray production started, so we should start seeing the customer cars leaving the factory any time now.  So I got the E-Ray dashboard set up.  C8Tracker should now be completely set up for E-Ray data.  Now to wait for the E-Ray window stickers....



/ Production Dashboard Fixed, Getting Things Set Up for E-Ray Data

Posted on 1/18/24, 11:08 PM

I think I have finally fixed the Production Dashboard. The issue was definitely different than I expected, but its good to go now. I also added the E-Ray to the charts on that dashboard. Currently only 2 E-Ray window stickers have been released, so don't expect to see much on there just yet.

I also got the E-Ray set up in the Dealers and Vehicles pages. I still have to make an E-Ray Dashboard page.



/ E-Ray Data Coming In

Posted on 1/12/24, 3:41 PM

The first production E-Ray window sticker was released today. Over this weekend I should be able to finish getting the site set up for E-Rays. Right now the basics are done. It's more of a pain than I expected since the VIN digit that denotes E-Ray is the same number that was used for the 70th Stingray.. so my current way of doing things needs more changes than I anticipated.



/ MY2023 Official Production Numbers Released - Lets Compare to C8Tracker

Posted on 1/5/24, 4:51 PM (Edited on 1/5/24, 4:52 PM)

I've been looking forward to the official MY23 production numbers getting released because I wanted to compare them to the data C8Tracker has collected via the window stickers.  There has always been some people who cast doubt on the accuracy of this website.  I've never claimed it was 100% accurate, the number I would usually throw out was "around 95%."  I knew there was some Canadian market Z06's that for whatever reason the window stickers were just never available.  Nothing I can do about that.  

But now we have some real numbers to compare to.  Since the window stickers only represent the US and Canadian market cars, I am going to focus on those.  These numbers are Stingrays and Z06s combined.

US Market
Official total 46,865
C8Tracker total 46,602
Accuracy 99%

Canadian Market
Official total 3,179
C8Tracker total 3,099
Accuracy 97%

US and CA Markets Combined
Official total 50,044
C8Tracker total 49,701
Accuracy 99%

Well, looks pretty accurate to me ;) I didn't go crazy with the math, but the biggest discrepancy appears to be the Z06 numbers.  I'm not sure if these official numbers include the Z06 captured test fleet cars.  They probably do, which would explain most of this discrepancy (along with the unavailable CA Z06 window stickers) as C8Tracker doesn't really track the CTF cars (the CTF E-Rays on the site will be deleted soon).



/ Dealer Comparison Pages Now Work with Multiple Model Years

Posted on 11/12/23, 10:14 PM

Tonight I finally had the time to update the Dealer Comparison pages to work with different model years. Just like other sections of the site, there are links above the data table that allow you to select a model year.

Spoiler Alert: There still haven't been any 2024 Z06's with the Z07 option built yet, so there isn't going to be any data on the "Stingray vs. Z06 vs. Z07" page for model year 2024. I believe some Z07 equipped cars have TPWs for this week, so hopefully we start seeing some 2024's with Z07 come out of Bowling Green.
