November 2006 Corvette Sales

by Keith Cornett on December 2, 2006

GM’s November 2006 Sales Report has been released. Corvette Sales for November 2006 have shown a -12.2% decline from November 2005. Last month, GM sold 2,773 new Corvettes vs. 3,157 for the same month in 2005. This is the second month in a row we have seen a decline, though last month’s dip was only -3.4%. Calendar year to date sales are still strong with 33,437 Corvettes sold January-November 2006 vs 29,218 sold in 2005. That is still on pace for a 14.4% increase over last year. There were 25 selling days for both the November 2006 and 2005 sales period. Source: GM

We got duped, folks. Not just me, either. Every Corvette fan that has been following the development of the Blue Devil/SS Corvette was suckered along with all the automotive blogs and “legitimate” magazines that have followed the story. Winding Road calls the print article “Gamesmanship: The Corvette WR”. The ruse? To build a Blue Devil/SS Corvette mule in the hopes that it would be photographed and published on competitors magazines and websites. Here are the November 16th photos of the Blue Devil/SS and the accompanying story that a student named “Yonni G” just happened to be cruising near Milford and just happened to have his dad’s camera and just happen to be quick enough to squeeze off a couple frames..

Yonni’s Comments:
“As I was driving I saw the prototype way ahead of me on the road, and it looked like a really aggressive Corvette. Luckily I had borrowed my dad’s camera for a project at school and had it with me in the car and snapped some shots as it passed by. The car was amazing! It sounded very powerful and definitely did not seem like your everyday Corvette.
So, before I get to my comments about how Winding Road just threw its credibility out the window, here are the images from their Jan 07 print edition:

    • Jeff McKay: I also asked a local dealer and they knew nothing about it. How do I order it myself? I think that would be faster than trying to convince them they should know about it.
    • CrystalKnight: I have always loved the 63, one of my favorite classics of all time, and I have had a many sports cars…, owned and loved the C5 even though it was heavy and underpowered, owned and loved the C6 convertible. ….I...
