May 2010 Corvette Sales

May 2010 Corvette sales report was released today by General Motors and the good news is that deliveries are at their highest level since September 2009. 1,428 Corvettes were delivered in May compared to April 2010′s 1,089 Corvettes the month prior. Corvettes haven’t sold this well since the 1,585 Corvettes sold in September 2009. Compared to a year ago, sales are off -13.1% with 1,643 Corvettes sold in May 2009 and calendar year to date sales are down -18.9%.

We are still seeing growth in the national inventory. Total 2008-2010 Corvettes on dealers lots grew 272 units over the last month to 4,843. Corvette Grand Sports currently make up 43% of total inventory which shows the strength of the new model. We are monitoring current Corvette ZR1 inventory and our stock report shows 422 2010 Corvettes and 11 2009 Corvette ZR1s are available.

Several rebates and incentives are still in place including 0% APR financing on 2010 Corvettes for 60 months or 3.9% APR financing for 72 months. Also look for the $1000 Toyota/Lexus rebate which is still in effect.
