July 2010 Corvette Sales

July 2010 Corvette Sales

GM released the sales figures for July this morning and for the first time since 2006, we have two consecutive months of growth in Corvette sales. While June 2010′s sales increase was a paltry 0.6%, July 2010 showed better results with a 19.5% sales increase over July 2009′s sales. Last month 1,199 Corvettes were delivered, 233 more than July 2009′s Corvette sales. For the calendar year to date, sales are 7,554 Corvettes delivered which is now just -10.8% off the 8,464 Corvettes delivered during the same time period last year.

Our inventory report is still incomplete as 2011 Corvettes are not yet searchable on Jeff Hardy’s website. We can tell you that there are 3,599 2010 Corvettes available while only 184 2009 Corvettes exist in dealer inventories. Factory production of the 2011 Corvette was running full speed ahead with 1,314 Corvettes produced last month.

Finally, we are seeing movement on sales of the ZR1, Corvette’s flagship model. 2010 Corvette ZR1 sales were 68 during the last month while 3 2009 Corvette ZR1s were sold. Last month it was announced that GM would offer a $3,000/$5,000 rebate for the 638-horsepower supercar. Again, our sales report is incomplete at this time as we are unable to ascertain the number of 2011 Corvette ZR1s produced during the time period.
