Final 2015 Corvette Production Statistics

The second year of C7 Corvette production ended almost two weeks ago and thanks to our friends at the National Corvette Museum, we already have a breakdown of the final 2015 Corvette production statistics.

For the 2015 model year, Chevrolet build 34,240 Corvettes. Production decreased 8% from the 37,288 Corvette Stingrays built during the C7’s inaugural year, but we’ve been told that the production cycle for the 2014 model year was slightly longer than 2015.

Leading the production was the 2015 Corvette Stingray Coupe. GM built 20,757 Stingray Coupes which accounted for 60.6% of Corvette production. The Z06 Coupe was second with 6,980 built for a 20.4% share. The Corvette Stingray Convertible’s production was 4,830 for 14.1% and finally the Corvette Z06 Convertible total was 1,673 for 4.9%.

Chevrolet has Produced Over 8,200 Corvette Z06s in 2015

At the National Corvette Museum’s Bash, we learned that 8,206 Corvette Z06s have been produced so far in 2015. That count is as of April 22nd, so by now that number has probably grown in the few days it’s taken us to digest this information.

Regardless of the Corvette Z06’s 2.95 second 0-60 mph time or a 1.2g lateral grip, when you get down to it, the most important number is how many can GM sell. Chief Engineer Tadge Juechter called 2015 “The Year of the Z06”. Now we know why!

2014 Corvette Stingray Production Statistics

It was back in August that we learned the General Motors produced 37,288 Corvette Stingray for the 2014 model year and now we’ve got the breakdown on the production statistics.

Leading the way was the Corvette Z51 Coupe which accounted for 41% of the models built and the most popular color was Torch Red which can be found on nearly one of out of five (19%) 2014 Corvette Stingrays.

We knew that the 650 horsepower Corvette Z06 would be a hot sale and that demand would be high during the initial stages of the new super car’s rollout, but the numbers we are hearing about those interested in buying a Z06 are just incredible.

Corvette Chief Engineer Tadge Juechter took a Corvette Z06 Coupe and Convertible to Autobahn Country Club for the Midwest Automotive Media Association’s Fall Rally this week and during a question and answer session he confirmed that over 5,000 pre-orders for the Corvette Z06 have already been received.

OFFICIAL: GM Production of 2014 Corvette Stingrays Totals 37,288

Earlier this month we ballparked 2014 Corvette Stingray production at just over 36,500 units which takes into account the 35,523 known VINs plus an additional 1,050 for the Premiere Editions.

But we were too low in our estimate.

GM officially revealed at last weekend’s Corvettes at Carlisle show that 37,288 Corvettes were built during the 2014 model year.

The Corvette Stingray has been in production since August 2013 and thousands of new C7s have already found their way to customers. At the Rolex 24 Hours of Daytona, Corvette Product Manager Harlan Charles was asked about providing some production stats for the new Stingray and he happily obliged.
