January 2010 Corvette Sales

by Keith Cornett on February 3, 2010

January 2010 Corvette Sales

The first sales report of the new year hit yesterday and the good news is that Corvette sales are up 1.4% over last year. January 2010 deliveries totaled 854 – 12 Corvettes more than the 842 sold in January 2009. Historically, Corvette sales tend to a breather in January anyway so we are okay with this number. The other significant number for the month is the availability of the Corvette ZR1. National inventories of the supercharged ZR1 have grown by 27% to 191 units.

Despite the rising inventories for the ZR1, the numbers for all Corvettes available continues to drop. Applying the principles of supply and demand, we believe the one good thing to come from the automotive recession is how GM took aggressive steps to bring its inventories under tighter control. In January 2009, over 9,058 Corvettes were available at dealers. Today that figure has shrunk to 2,561 Corvettes.
