February 2010 Corvette Sales

That’s a decline of -39% from February 2009′s 1,027 sales figure and -26.9% off of January 2010′s 854 deliveries.

Delmo Johnson's Last Corvette

Texas legend Delmo Johnson is one of the pioneers of Corvette road racing with a career that goes back to the early days.

January 2010 Corvette Sales

The first sales report of the new year hit yesterday and the good news is that Corvette sales are up 1.4% over last year. January 2010 deliveries totaled 854 – 12 Corvettes more than the 842 sold in January 2009. Historically, Corvette sales tend to a breather in January anyway so we are okay with this number. The other significant number for the month is the availability of the Corvette ZR1. National inventories of the supercharged ZR1 have grown by 27% to 191 units.
