The $2.5 Billion Economy Surrounding the Chevrolet Corvette

Chevy’s Corvette may be a little fish in a big pond, as far as the total financial picture at General Motors goes.

But when it comes to the total economic impact created by ancillary industries, America’s Sports Car is making quite a big ripple in that pond, thank you, according to a story by Edmunds.com.

In fact, even with sales of just 14,132 Corvettes during 2012 because of the economic downturn and the impending release of the C7, Edmunds estimates that Corvette’s total economic activity could well be more than $2.5 billion.

[VIDEO] 2014 Corvette Stingray – Enemy of the Same

[VIDEO] 2014 Corvette Stingray - Enemy of the Same

We saw this 30 second commercial last week just hours after Chevrolet uploaded it to their YouTube channel and it had garnered 300 views. If you follow us on social media, you would know that we tweeted and posted the video to our Facebook page. In nearly one week, the video has been watched over 2.6 million times. That’s an amazing amount of views that shows the interest and excitement in the new Corvette.

We were really hoping that its arrival on Thursday afternoon would mean that it was scheduled to air sometime during Sunday’s Super Bowl broadcast, but alas, that was not to be. And that’s a shame because showing a Corvette commercial during the Super Bowl would have conveyed a “new seriousness” from GM about how it markets its halo car.

It’s a shame that a deal couldn’t be worked out between General Motors and the organizers of the Super Bowl halftime show on Sunday night to spotlight the C7 Corvette.

Remember that story about Beyonce doing the Super Bowl halftime show with the 2014 Corvette Stingray? Well, that didn’t happen.

What did happen was the red 2014 Corvette Stingray was on the field during the post game celebration but it got zero coverage by CBS Sports. And despite a tweet from Corvette’s John Fitzpatrick confirming it was the Red Corvette that was in the house, there has been no announcement from Chevrolet regarding the MVP award.

Retro Rear End Kit Brings Nostalgic Round Tail Lights to 2014 Corvette Stingray

For months now, in the aftermath of the Jalopnik renderings, critics of the polarizing new C7 rear end have been threatening to perform “plastic surgery” on their own and change what the GM designers came up with.

Now it appears that those who don’t like the new treatment at the back of the 2014 Corvette Stingray can really do something about it, thanks to the folks at www.corvetteitalia.it.
