April 2010 Corvette Sales

by Keith Cornett on May 3, 2010

April 2010 Corvette Sales

GM’s monthly sales report shows 1,089 Corvettes delivered in the month of April. That’s the largest amount of sales in five months and the first time this year that sales have broken the one thousand mark. The number is down from last year’s 1,407 by -22.6%. Year to date, Corvettes sales are down -21% with 3,522 deliveries in 2010 vs 4,459 in 2009.

Checking national inventories, we see that the number of Corvettes available has grown to 4,571 (2008-2010 models) from last month’s 4,187. Although this is the highest amount of inventory since June of 2009, to keep it in perspective, on May 5, 2009 there were 6,416 Corvettes available. Since then, all but 435 have been sold. As we close out the 2010 model year, look for GM to start offering financing incentives and rebates to help shrink up some of this excess inventory.

I’ve been commenting on the growing ZR1 inventory the last few reports and yet again we see an increase. There are 406 2010 Corvette ZR1s and 11 still from 2009. Last month, the ZR1 inventory stood at 374.
