May 2017 Corvette Sales


The latest Corvette Sales Report from General Motors has been released and Corvette sales continue to be steady as we march towards the end of the 2017 model year.

The May 2017 Report shows that 2,535 Corvettes were sold during the month. That’s a -5.2% decline from May 2016’s sales of 2,673 Corvettes. For the calendar Year to Date, a total of 11,095 Corvettes were sold. We are currently pacing -8.9% behind last year’s Jan-May sales of 12,185 Corvettes.

The 2017 Model Year officially ends tomorrow and the 2018 Corvette will start production on Monday, June 5th. Customers have until June 12th to get their orders in if they want a 2018 Corvette before the extended summer shutdown comes at the end of July.

Chevrolet has changed up the incentives for month with only the Stingray (base and Z51) getting some attention. Chevrolet has extended the 10% MSRP on selected Corvette Stingrays only. There is also a 0% APR financing offer for 60 months on new Stingrays. The Grand Sports and Z06s are currently excluded from this offer. As always, see your Chevrolet dealer for the latest incentives and rebates.

Want the best of both worlds? Our friends at Kerbeck have a number of these specially-discounted Stingrays with the 10% off MSRP discount and then you can finance the purchase through their in-house source at a low 1.99% ARP rate.
