December 2008 Corvette Sales

by Keith Cornett on January 6, 2009

GM released the December sales figures for Corvette yesterday and the despite the dreadful year to year sales decline figure of -54.6%, we are seeing an uptick in sales that is the higher than the previous two months. In December 2008, 1,324 Corvettes were delivered which was a 21% increase over November 2008′s 1,093 deliveries and 13% higher than October’s 1,170 deliveries.

We are still not seeing a constriction in the number of Corvettes available on the ground nationally, and in fact the number grew 11% over the last 30 days. With the Corvette Assembly Plant idled just before the holidays, no new Corvettes are expected to be built before the end of February.
