We got the new monthly sales figures for September this week and Corvette sales have rebounded from the 936 deliveries made in August to 1,147 Corvettes delivered in September. Corvette sales saw a 3.4% increase over September 2010’s sales which totaled 1,109. For the year to date calendar, Corvette sales are pacing at 4.8% higher than 2010 as well.
Corvette sales in September were buoyed by a number of factors. First, the dealerships on the east coast that were impacted at the end of August by Hurricane Irene were back and open for business. Second, we had good news that two of the Corvette’s most popular colors, Crystal Red and Cyber Gray, are now back in the order pipeline and the first Crystal Red Corvettes returned to showroom floors. And finally, new incentives with special APRs and loyalty bonus became available.
For the 2011 Corvette, buyers can receive a $3,000 rebate or finance 0% down for 60 months or 2.9% for 72 months. 2012 Corvette buyers can get $1,500 dealer cash or a 3.9% APR for 60 months. Buyers who currently own a Corvette can receive bonus cash of $3,000 which can be combined with other incentives.

Corvette Stock Report:
For the past several years, we’ve utilized Jeff Hardy’s website to get the latest stock counts from GMBuyPower.com. However, it looks like that site has been taken down and traffic is being redirected to GM.com. Inventory counts for 2011 and 2012 Corvettes are currently unavailable and o the picture we used to be able to provide of what was happening on the ground is no longer complete. So for the time being, we will no longer feature the Stock Report in our monthly sales reports.
