2010 Corvette Production By The Numbers (So Far)

When the GM rolled out the Corvette Grand Sport, Corvette Product Manager Harlan Charles thought the new model would account for about half of all Corvette production. He was right. So far though April 14, 51% of all Corvettes built are Grand Sports. While the Grand Sport has helped increase the amount of convertibles built from 20% of Model Year production in 2009 to 28% in 2010, the shocker is how much the Grand Sport has reduced the number of Z06s, to just 4% of production. Perhaps now we see why the Corvette Z06 is getting all the attention for 2011.

The C4 version of the Corvette ZR-1 was nicknamed “The King of the Hill” for good reason.

Looking back today, Corvette’s return to the world stage of sports car performance can be directly attributed to this special edition.
