Chevrolet Celebrates Production of the 1,500,000th Corvette

Another milestone was reached in the 56 year history of the Chevrolet Corvette. On May 28th, this Arctic White Corvette Convertible became the 1.5 millionth Corvette ever made.

Chevrolet Product Marketing Manager Karen Rafferty made the announcement of the milestone at a recent meeting of the Greater Atlanta Automotive Media Association. “The 1.5 millionth Corvette is a great example of how Chevy is America’s Brand,” Rafferty said. “For nearly 60 years we have built America’s Sports Car and this milestone is a solid proof point.”

Like its predecessors, the 1.5 millionth Corvette features a white exterior with red interior and a black top. The Corvette has a 3LT options package.

This C6 Corvette joins the other milestone Corvettes built previously. The first Corvette rolled off the assembly line on June 30, 1953 in Flint, Michigan. Twenty four years later, the 500,000 Corvette was built in 1977. The one millionth Corvette was built in 1992.
