Street Car Takeover hosted an open house with the dyno at Vengeance Racing’s headquarters late last year and this black C6 Corvette stole the show!

The Top 50 Corvette Dealers of 2016


Now that 2016 is behind us, we can now take a closer look at the dealers who sold the most Corvettes during the year.

2016 was the third full year for Chevrolet in producing and selling America’s favorite sports car. While sales remain very strong with 29,995 Corvettes sold during the 2016 calendar year, the number of Corvettes sold in the United States has declined each year since 2014’s high of 34,839 and 2015’s total of 33,329.

As the market for the C7 has matured and dealer inventories have grown, it’s actually easier than ever to buy a Corvette these days.
