Final 2010 Corvette Production Statistics

Final 2010 Corvette Production Statistics

Production of the 2010 Corvette model has wrapped up and GM has released the final production statistics for the 2010 Corvette model year. The final count of Corvettes produced for MY 2010 is 12,194. That’s a decrease of 28.1% from 2009′s 16,956 production and a whopping 65.5% off the 35,310 Corvettes produced in 2008.

Many will make hay out of that decrease, saying its been almost 50 years (1961 – 10,939) since Corvettes were produced in so few numbers. You won’t find us complaining here as we believe 2010 was a banner year for Corvette which included the return of the Grand Sport and one of our favorite new options – launch control!

The Grand Sports were very popular in their inaugural year making up 49.6% of total Corvettes produced. The Grand Sport Coupe was the most popular model at 3,707 units (30.4%) while the regular Corvette Coupe was second at 3,054 units (25.1%). The Z06 was the least popular Corvette sold with just 518 units making up 4.3% of production. The ZR1 outsold the Z06 in its second year of production by 3 to 1. 1,577 supercharged Corvettes left Bowling Green for a total of 12.9% of Corvette production.

As far as colors, the most popular single color is Black at 24%. Torch Red is second with 18.4% and when combined with Crystal Red’s 14.1%, the two reds total 32.5%.

Other than colors, the numbers we received from GM were condensed into Coupe, Convertible, Z06/ZR1, although we are able to view certain model-specific RPOs like the Grand Sport’s Z51 or the 3ZR package for the ZR1.

Here are the 2010 Corvette Production Statistics from GM:
