April 2011 Corvette Sales

April 2011 Corvette Sales

Great news from General Motors today regarding the sales of America’s favorite sports car. In April 2011, sales of the Corvette shot up to 1,454 – the highest reported sales figure in the last 19 months! Deliveries last month were 33.5% higher than April 2010′s 1,089 and for Calendar Year to Date, General Motors has sold 4,293 to lead 2010′s 3,522 figure by 21.9%. Sales of Corvettes haven’t been this high since September of 2009 when 1,585 Corvettes were sold.

We spoke with the Corvette Assembly Plant Manager Dave Tatman at the Museum’s C5/C6 Bash who told us the plant is planning on adding several overtime dates in May. That a far cry from the layoffs and plant closures we’ve been used to since the automotive recession began in late 2008.

We are hearing that Offers and rebates from April have been extended into May for at least the next week. 2010 Buyers can get a $4,000 cash allowance or 0% financing for 72 months for qualified buyers. 2011 Corvettes have $3,000 dealer cash allowance or 1.9$ financing for 60 months/2.9% financing for 72 months. GM also sent out two private direct mail pieces with a $3,000 cash allowance so check your mailboxes. GM also has extended the military program to include both active service members as well as retirees.
