Last week, General Motors released the April 2012 sales report and new deliveries of America’s favorite sports car came in at 1,396. This is down 4% from April 2011’s sales figure of 1,454 but was an increase over the 1,376 Corvettes sold last month (March 2012). This is now the 4th month in row for Corvette sales increases over the previous month and April’s sales number is the highest in a year. For the calendar year, 4,328 Corvettes have been sold and the number is pacing 0.8% ahead of 2011’s calendar year sales.
April 2012 marks last month for full 2012 Corvette production. The plant has ended production of the 2012 Corvette in early May and now 2013 Corvettes are now working their way down the assembly line.
A new round of incentives was announced for May on 2012 Corvettes. Buyers can get a special APR of 0% up to 60th months and 2.9% for 72 months. Dealer cash of $1,500 is still in effect and can be combined with the 0% financing offer. There is also a $3,000 retention offer but you must be on the list. Check with your dealer for details. These current incentives run through July 2, 2012.
