Production Statistics for the 2017 Corvette Model Year


The Bowling Green Assembly Plant wrapped up production on Friday, June 2nd and so now it’s time to take our regular deep dive into the production statistics for the 2017 Model Year.

For the 2017 model year, Chevrolet built a total of 32,782 Corvettes. The number one selling model is the Corvette Stingray Coupe which accounts for 34.3% of production, followed by the Grand Sport Coupe which saw 30.2% of production while the Z06 had 18.9% of 2017 Corvette production. Here’s the numbers and percentages by model:

For Stingray and Grand Sport Buyers, the 2LT Equipment Group was the most popular. We see that 52% of all Stingray Coupe buyers selected the base 1LT equipment group which tells one of two things: Either many Stingray Coupe buyers don’t care about all the bells and whistles available in the upper trim packages or they stretched their car-buying budget to get into a Stingray and nothing was left over for option upgrades.

Only 32.7% of Stingray Coupe/Convertible buyers opted for the Z51 performance package. For Grand Sport, 12.3% of Coupe/Convertible buyers opted for the Z07 Performance package. For Z06 buyers, 32.5% selected the Z07 Performance Package while another 17.9% selected the J57 carbon ceramic brakes (without Z07).

Chevrolet released a Grand Sport Collector Edition (RPO Z25) with the Watkins Glen Gray exterior and Tension Blue interior. A total of 1,000 were planned but the production statistics shows just 935 were built.

Across the board, the take-rate on the 8-speed automatic transmission was 77.9%. For Z06, 70.9% of buyers selected the 8-speed automatic.

The top selling color once again across all models was Arctic White by a large margin with 6,199 produced followed by Watkins Glen Gray with 5,822 and Black rounds out the top three at 5,338:

Color Quantity Percentage
     
Arctic White 6,199 18.9%
Watkins Glen Gray 5,822 17.8%
Black 5,338 16.3%
Torch Red 4,621 14.1%
Admiral Blue 3,068 9.4%
Blade Silver 2,105 6.4%
Long Beach Red 2,004 6.1%
Corvette Racing Yellow 1,371 4.2%
Black Rose 1,333 4.1%
Sterling Blue 921 2.8%


We are sure there are many more stories in these stats like the single (just 1!) Grand Sport Convertible with the full width Yellow body stripe, a single Z06 Convertible with a full length Orange body stripe and the two Stingray Convertibles with a Gray stinger hood graphic.

Below you’ll find the full breakout that we received from the the Corvette Team. As its kind of difficult to reproduce so many stats, you can also download them as a PDF here:

  1. I think I’ll have to go with “stretching the budget” for the 2LT option and the major sales being the 1LT trim level. I love Corvettes (currently on #5) but it is a lot of money and where I live it’s like a boat or motorcycle, you really don’t want to use it in the bad weather so it’s an extra vehicle. Also, insurance took a big hike this last couple years and that didn’t help.

  2. White red black z06 is an amazing value. The A8 sales lead is not consumer choice in ordering but rather dealer order for store inventory..

    The manual cars for inventory are tough to move but everyone can drive an automatic…

    The A8 performs better than the manual …I know I should go automatic but having a hard time making that choice…so I keep enjoying my present corvette…

    Most reliable car I’ve owned in 40 years …I’m sure the c7 z06 is as well. But with 650 hp!

  3. Looks like they’ll be able to publish the final 2017 Corvette Black Book now!
    I didn’t see Buyer’s Tour RPO:PD5 listed which is a $2500 option.
    Also, my dealer installed Performance Aero Package $595, this option completes the Stage 2 up to Stage 3.
    I also didn’t see the 5W8 $2995 Carbon Flash Ground Effects listed for Z06 or the PCX $730 Z06 Coupe Appearance Package. These sure show up on my window sticker as separate line items.
    Looks like I’m one of the rare ones (32) who built their LT4 engine, pretty cool.

  4. I contacted the Corvette Museum concerning how many participants were in the Corvette Buyers Tour for 2017 RPO: PD5 which is an add-on to the Engine Build Experience. I received an answer today 6/12/17 that the Museum had 16 participants in the program. Now I feel very privileged to have been a member of such a small group who built their engine and then followed their car through the entire assembly process, climb in the Z06 and start the engine and receive a birth certificate that commemorated the event. The museum is also compiling a twenty page photo book with my engine build and Z06 assembly highlights that I will receive shortly.

    I highly encourage anyone who can take advantage in the Engine Build Experience and Buyers Tour to do so when it becomes available again. It provides memories to go along with your Z06 that will last a lifetime. The Corvette Museum oversees this programs and with their close relationship with the Corvette Factory provides an experience second to none in the automotive world. As I promised I would share this quote from someone who followed along and viewed my experience, he said: “This is the ultimate Gear Head decadence”!
