January 2008 Corvette Sales

by Keith Cornett on February 4, 2008

January in not typically one of the bigger months for sales of new Corvettes. Having said that, analysis of GM’s delivery stats from January 2008 show sales down from the previous January 2007 at nearly 10% with only 2,015 Corvettes delivered. In fact, there hasn’t been a lower number of deliveries in a month since the introduction of the C6 Corvette began in July 2005 when 1,872 Corvettes were delivered.

Corvette Stock Report:
A check of Jeff Hardy’s website shows a total of 5,480 2008 Corvettes on the ground in the following model configurations:

  • 3,145 Corvette Coupes
  • 1,163 Corvette Convertibles
  • 1,172 Corvette Z06

There are still 1,433 new 2007 Corvettes available. Sure, they don’t have the new LS3 and some of the other refinements found in the 2008 Corvette, but these 2007 models are being heavily discounted.
