2010 Corvette Production By The Numbers (So Far)

2010 Corvette Production By The Numbers (So Far)

When the GM rolled out the Corvette Grand Sport, Corvette Product Manager Harlan Charles thought the new model would account for about half of all Corvette production. He was right. So far though April 14, 51% of all Corvettes built are Grand Sports. While the Grand Sport has helped increase the amount of convertibles built from 20% of Model Year production in 2009 to 28% in 2010, the shocker is how much the Grand Sport has reduced the number of Z06s, to just 4% of production. Perhaps now we see why the Corvette Z06 is getting all the attention for 2011.

These slides were disseminated at the C5/C6 Corvette Bash. During the GM seminar, Harlan usually spends a few minutes recapping the 2010 models before moving on the new stuff. Here are the important numbers on the models which show that 10,487 Corvettes have been produced through April 14th. The breakout per model:

Model Quantity % of Prod
Corvette Coupe 2,605 25%
Corvette Convertible 856 8%
Corvette Grand Sport Coupe 3,211 31%
Corvette Grand Sport Convertible 2,065 20%
Corvette Z06 402 4%
Corvette ZR1 1,348 13%
  ——–  
TOTAL (through April 14) 10,487  

The data on colors is always interesting as well. In five of the six models, Black is the top individual color with only Grand Sport Convertible buyers opting for Torch Red more.

Here are the six slides that deal with production and the penetration of options on the 2010 Corvette:
