August 2016 Corvette Sales

It’s the first of the month and that means it’s time to take a look at the monthly Corvette sales report from General Motors.

During the month of August 2016, a total of 3,063 Corvettes were delivered. This was a 12.4% increase over the 2,725 Corvettes sold in August 2015. Chevrolet reports that it was the best August for Corvette sales since 2008.

For the calendar year to date (January – August), a total of 19,890 Corvettes have been delivered. This is a -16.5% decline from the 23,826 Corvettes sold last year.

Dealers first reported the arrivals of the 2017 Corvette Grand Sports at the very end of July so much of this increase is do to the first 2017s being delivered. Corvette Z06 production is expected to start up midway through September and we’ve also heard that Black Rose Metallic will also begin shortly.

As far as special offers go, we’ve been seeing them offered on Corvettes for the first time in a while. Chevrolet is now offering 0% APR for 72 Months on 2016 Corvette Stingrays and Z06s. See your dealers for details.
