General Motors released the monthly sales figures this morning for February 2014. The reports shows that sales of the Corvette Stingray are up 148% over last February with deliveries totaling 2,438 vs 980 in February 2013. We also see that the 2,438 Corvettes delivered in February 2014 was an increase of 7.8% over January 2014′s sales of 2,261 Corvettes. For the calendar year (January-February 2014), Corvette sales are up 148.9% with 4,699 delivered this year compared to 2013 sales of 1,888.
General Motors released their monthly figures this morning for January’s new car deliveries which showed 2,261 Corvettes were sold. In direct comparison, only 908 new Corvettes were sold in January 2013. The January 2014 figure is the lowest number of Corvettes delivered since last September when the new C7 Corvettes started shipping and the dip in sales is most likely a combination of the plant being closed for the holidays as well as the winter weather that covered much of the United States last month.
General Motors released their November Sales report earlier this week and Corvette sales are remaining steady. In November 2012, a total of 1,104 Corvettes were sold. This is 21.3% more than the 910 Corvettes sold during November 2011. For the calendar year to date, 12,841 Corvettes have been sold between January-November 2012. This is 5.9% better than 2011′s Corvette sales of 12,126 during the same months.
Despite being in the twilight of its final year of production, 2013 Corvettes continue to be sold by Chevrolet dealers in strong numbers. In the latest sales report from General Motors, 1,167 Corvettes were sold in the month October. This was a 23.4% increase from the 946 Corvettes that sold in October 2011 and for the 2012 Calendar year, Corvette sales are up a 4.6% with 11,737 Corvettes built between January-October 2012 vs 11,216 Corvettes during the same period in 2011.
On Friday, General Motors released their monthly sales report for May 2012 and it shows that 1,219 buyers took delivery of a new Corvette. Despite sales being down -6% from May 2011′s number of 1,304, this a very solid sales figure which includes deliveries of the very first 2013 Corvettes. For the calendar year to date, Corvette sales are pacing slightly behind 2011 (-0.9%) with 5,547 Corvettes delivered in 2012 vs 5,597 Corvettes in 2011.
