May 2012 Corvette Sales

On Friday, General Motors released their monthly sales report for May 2012 and it shows that 1,219 buyers took delivery of a new Corvette. Despite sales being down -6% from May 2011′s number of 1,304, this a very solid sales figure which includes deliveries of the very first 2013 Corvettes. For the calendar year to date, Corvette sales are pacing slightly behind 2011 (-0.9%) with 5,547 Corvettes delivered in 2012 vs 5,597 Corvettes in 2011.

As mentioned, 2013 Corvette production in May has ramped up in a big way. A total of 1,573 Corvettes were assembled last month with 1,479 being the new 2013 model. Looking back, we see this is the highest monthly production in a year.

Now that 2012 Corvette production has officially closed, we have the total for the model year production run: 11,647. The annual sales figure hasn’t been that low since the 10,939 Corvettes that were built in 1961.

Incentives for buying a new Corvette haven’t changed from last month. For remaining 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.
