August 2010 Corvette Sales

by Keith Cornett on September 1, 2010

August 2010 Corvette Sales

Corvette sales are holding steady according to the latest sales report from General Motors. Deliveries of Corvettes in August hit 1,135 units which was 64 cars less than July 2010′s 1,199 sales. Year to date, sales are up 52.1% over August 2009′s dismal 746 Corvettes sold. In fact, August 2010 marks the third straight month of increases over 2009′s deliveries. However, last year at this time, the cash for clunkers program was in full swing which heavily impacted the sales of Corvettes and other cars not covered by the program. For the calendar year, 8,689 Corvettes have been sold which is a decline of 5.7% from 2009′s 9,210 Corvettes sold.

Our Corvette Stock Report is still incomplete as we don’t have inventory data on 2011 Corvettes yet. Last month, the Bowling Green Assembly Plant produced 1,335 Corvettes and 3,491 2011 Corvettes have been built this year. There are still 2,886 2010 Corvettes available as well as 140 2009 models.
