We got this report today which details Corvette sales by dealers for the calendar year 2014 and thought it was worth sharing. With over 3,000 Chevrolet dealers across the country, these 87 dealers represent approximately 41% of all Corvette sales from January-March 2014 which totaled 8,179.

When Chevrolet initially priced the 2014 Corvette Stingray coupe at $51,000 and the Convertible at $56,000, we were shocked at how much car an owner was getting for the money. Add to the fact that the very popular Z51 performance package added a mere $2800 to the sticker price and we can see how that pricing eventually led to demand outpacing supply.
To help meet the demand, Chevrolet is raising the prices on both the base Corvette Stingray Coupe and Convertible, which will see their prices go up $2,000. The Z51 package increases $1,200 for a total package cost of $4,000.
