September 2017 Corvette Sales


General Motors issued the official report on Friday for August Corvette Sales. This is the first sales report since the Bowling Green Assembly Plant closed at the end of July. Some new deliveries from the factory still took place during the month but moving forward it’s safe to say that any new sales will come from existing dealer stocks.

So let’s get to it.

In August 2017, Chevrolet sold 1,748 Corvettes which was a 42.9% decline from the 3,063 Corvettes sold in 2016. In August 2016, the Grand Sport had started shipping. For the calendar year to date (January-August), a total of 17,385 Corvettes have been sold. This is a 12.6% decline from the 19,890 Corvettes sold in 2016 during the same time frame.

The renovations of the Corvette assembly plant are coming along according to plant manager Kai Spande who talked about the plant at the National Corvette Museum. You can see that discussion here.

There is a current offer for 2017 Corvettes from General Motors. They are offering 4.9% APR for 60 months on all three models. See your dealer for details.
