Previously, they also produced the powerplants for the Cadillac STS-V and XLR-V.

General Motors released the July 2012 sales report this week and the data shows 987 Corvettes were delivered during the month. This is a huge decline from June 2012 where 1,475 Corvettes found new homes, however it was somewhat expected with the extended July shutdown at the assembly plant.
Comparing July 2012 sales to July 2011’s number of 1,291 Corvettes sold, deliveries are off a whopping -23.5%. For the calendar year to date, a total of 8,009 Corvettes have been sold which is pacing -2.2% off of 2011’s CYTD 8,187 sales figure.

Now we got word that the Buyers Tour and the custom Photo Book options have closed as well.
