At the Chevrolet Media Preview for the 2013 SEMA show in Las Vegas, we had the opportunity to talk with Corvette/Camaro’s Marketing Manager John Fitzpatrick. We spoke about the 3 new Stingray Concepts, 2014 Corvette Stingray production and we asked John about the rumors of the one year wait for the Z51 option.

One of the innovative ways that Chevy is marketing the all-new Corvette Stingray is by getting people behind the wheel to experience the car for themselves on a racetrack. That’s the goal of the invitation-only Stingray Precision Drive Event which held its second event over the weekend in Palm Beach, Florida.

Last week, reports of a 6 month wait for your new C7 Corvette swirled around the internet. Since then the topic of Corvette Stingray demand has been talked about all over the interwebs. With that in mind we decided to take a look around the ‘net and see what we could find for sale. Read on to see what we came across.

When all is said and done, the ultimate goal of the 2014 Corvette Stingray is to make money for the company that manufactures them and the dealers who sell them.
Based on the early returns, we’d have to say, “Mission Accomplished!”
Edmunds.com reports that the new Stingrays are doing a burnout on the 950 Chevrolet sales floors where they are available across the nation, with the cars being sold within an average of five days after arriving at the dealer.

GM’s recently upgraded Military Discount Program gives our men and women in the Armed Forces incentives to buy many different kinds of vehicles from General Motors, including Chevrolet, Buick, and GMC.
But soldiers who have their hearts set on a 2014 Corvette Stingray are going to be disappointed because GM has decided to leave the new C7 out of the discount program thanks to its overwhelming popularity.

We’re not sure why these barn find Corvettes with psychedelic paint jobs are all of a sudden being found after years of storage, we’re just glad they are! After posting the 1965 Corvette Coupe from California yesterday that’s still available on ebay for $22K, we now have this Craigslist ad for a 1961 barn find Corvette Fuelie that was parked in 1984.

Could it be that the new Corvette Stingray is already putting a major hurt on one of its competitors on the salesroom floor?
While customers may have to wait up to six months for the honor of putting the 2014 Corvette in their garage, they could head to their favorite SRT dealer right now and pick up a brand new Viper. In fact, some 565 of them are currently available across the nation.

Mike Furman of Criswell Corvette sent us a very cool video showing the arrival of the 2014 Corvette Stingrays to his dealership in Gaithersburg, MD. His first two cars received are a Black Stingray and a Lime Rock Green Stingray. In another post on the forum, we read that the black Corvette Stingray is already on its way to a customer on the west coast who will take delivery at a Chevy dealership in Oregon.
