First Retail Production 2023 Corvette Z06 Convertible Raises $1 Million for Thurgood Marshall College Fund  

GM stunned Corvette enthusiasts and raised over $1 million for charity when it announced the return of the iconic Z06 for the 2023 model year.

The new car was auctioned at Barrett-Jackson.

The proceeds benefited the Thurgood Marshall College Fund.

These funds provide scholarships and support to students.

They go to Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs).

A Brief History of the Corvette Z06

The Corvette Z06 is one of the most iconic American sports cars ever made. First introduced in 1963, the Z06 was designed as a race-ready version of the already impressive Corvette Stingray. It quickly gained a reputation for being fast, agile, and stylish. It cemented the Corvette's place as a performance machine.

The Z06 was discontinued in 1967 but returned in 2001 as a high-performance option for the Corvette C5. It featured a powerful LS6 V8 engine and quickly became one of the most sought-after cars on the market.

In 2005, the Z06 underwent its most significant change with the introduction of the C6 generation. The new Z06 featured an even more powerful LS7 V8 engine, with various other upgrades that made it one of the most track-worthy cars on the market.

The purchase of the first 2023 Corvette Z06 Convertible for $1 million will go a long way towards helping the Thurgood Marshall College Fund achieve its goals.

It is a victory not just for GM but also for the HBCU community, which has long been underfunded and overlooked.

The Thurgood Marshall College Fund is the nation's largest organization supporting HBCUs.

It increases access to higher education for all.

The fund was established in 1987 and is named after Thurgood Marshall, the first African American Supreme Court Justice.

The Thurgood Marshall College Fund has long been a vital source of support for HBCU students.
