March 2017 Corvette Sales


General Motors released the new sales report for March 2017 and Corvette sales totaled 2,460 for the month. That’s a -10.6 percent decline from last year’s 2,753 deliveries in March 2016. The good news is that for 2017, it’s the third monthly increase in a row for the sports car now in its fourth year of production.

Total year to date sales (January-March 2017) were 5,804 which is a decline of -8.9 percent over the same period in 2016.

Since last month’s sales report, we’ve got firm intel on how the Corvette plant will initiate their planned three-month shut down for assembly line upgrades. To recap, the 2017 model year will end on Friday, June 2nd and new 2018 Corvettes will start production the next week. The plant will churn out as many 2018 Corvettes through the end of July, and then the plant goes on hiatus for the months of August-October. The plant will then restart 2018 Corvette production where it left off on November.

Members of the Corvette Team relayed that information at Sebring. A noted point was that there will be no changes in the content of 2018 Corvettes despite the three month layoff.

As far as rebates and incentives go, Chevrolet.com only has offers for 4.9% APR Financing for 60 months for the 2017 Stingray (Base or Z51). We have a feeling there are more out there so contact your dealer for details.
