Sure enough, once the Stingray Convertibles started production, Chevrolet announced that 550 Convertible Premiere Editions in Lime Rock Green would be produced.

Criswell Corvette’s Mike Furman got that call from Bob D. in Annapolis, MD about putting a deposit down on a Stingray Convertible Premiere Edition just after the Coupe was announced and this week he was able to take the Lime Rock Green Corvette Stingray home.

January 2014 Corvette Sales

General Motors released their monthly figures this morning for January’s new car deliveries which showed 2,261 Corvettes were sold.

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.
