2009 Corvette Production By The Numbers (So Far)

2009 Corvette Production By The Numbers (So Far)

2009 Corvette Z06 in Cyber Gray

I continue to hope that 2009 will go down in history as the year that production started on the Corvette ZR1 instead of the year that the last Corvette was made. There are buyers out there and even in a bad economy Corvettes will continue to be sold. With that said, we do have some preliminary production numbers of Corvettes for the first five months or so of the 2009 model year.

Our numbers come by way of “Zippy” who is an ambassador with the National Corvette Museum and is a well known source of info on several forum sites. He says that to date there have been 9,230 Corvettes produced for the 2009 model year. They breakdown as:

  • 4,959 Corvette Coupes
  • 1,696 Corvette Convertibles
  • 2,213 Corvette Z06s
  •    362 Corvette ZR1s

Some additional facts regarding 2009 Corvette production:

  • 362 ZR1s have been produced with a total of 509 in the ordering system.
  • 9.7% of Convertibles were built with the new 1LT Package.
  • NPP Performance Exhaust has been ordered on 51% of all Coupes and 59% of all Convertibles.

The top three colors ordered for the Corvette ZR1 were:

  • 40% Cyber Gray
  • 20% Black
  • 17% Jetstream Blue

Cyber Gray is the most popular 2009 color to date with 20% of all Corvettes ordered in the new color. Second is Black at 20% and third is Victory Red at 14%.

  1. Hi Mike. I don’t know what the specific VIN sequence it was, but overall, the last 2009 produced would be in the neighborhood of 1G1YY26W295112080. You can probably get it by contacting the Corvette Museum.

  2. sorry keith. What i was after was the number of corvette coupes produced in 2009
    It says 4.959 was the last figure on that. Do you know if there is any official site to obtain this information? Thanks for your help. I should have worded it better

  3. Question of the day. How could one find out how many 2009 corvette where built with certain options. I can find out how many black z06 they built, but i’am looking for a coupe with certain color and options. Thanks
