Corvette Quarterly, the official magazine of Corvette from General Motors has told readers that in an effort to better the magazine, the spring and summer issues will not be published. We also have heard that subscribers have been mailed refunds and the mailers lead us to believe there will be no more print issues for the foreseeable future.
On Corvette Quarterly’s website, the following statement is at the top of the page:
Corvette Quarterly News
Because we value the readers of Corvette Quarterly, we are taking some time to make Corvette Quarterly the best source of Corvette news available. As part of this process, we will not publish our spring and summer issues for 2009.
But please check the website often to find the latest news on Corvette and information on the magazine.
Thank you! Your Corvette Quarterly Team
We contacted Corvette Quarterly through their Twitter account regarding the statement on the home page:
CorvetteBlogger: What’s the word on Corvette Quarterly? Saw the message on the site. Is it moving to an online addition only?
CQMag: The post at the top of our website (cqmag.com) is the official update regarding Corvette Quarterly from General Motors.
The Magazine has a subscriber base of 250,000 and an annual circulation of 1,000,000 copies per year. According to Echo Media, the demographics for Corvette Quarterly are:
- Average Income: $137,000
- Average Age: $53
- Percent Male: 90%
Online at Corvette Quarterly you’ll find full and partial issues going back to Summer 2006. You can view the magazines in a pdf format that is friendly to the magazine experience. That leads us to speculate that the magazine may try to cut costs by going digital only. But the move to cancel issues altogether in the name of providing a better product is lost on us.
