Looking for some good news regarding new Corvette sales? According to GM’s June 2012 sales report released last week, Corvette sales jumped to 1,475 cars for the month, an increase of 13.5% over June 2011’s 1,299 deliveries.
This is the best sales figure we’ve had since September 2009 when 1,589 Corvettes were sold. For the calendar year, sales are up 1.8% with 7,022 Corvettes delivered between January-June 2012 compared with 6,896 Corvettes sold over the same time period in 2011.
Much of the increase is due to the accelerated production of the 2013 models, which started production in May and are now finally getting out to dealers in earnest. In fact, we are hearing that sales of the new 427 Convertible are very strong as well as those featuring the Arctic White 60th Anniversary package.
To keep the sales train moving, GM has released the latest round of incentives for America’s sports car.
For 2012 Corvettes, get $1,500 in Dealer Cash and special financing rates of 0% for 60 months and 2.9% for 72 months. 2011 Corvettes still have a $4,000 rebate available if you can find one. If you or anyone in your household has a current non-GM lease, you can receive $2,000 towards the purchase of the Corvette and you do not need to turn in the lease. Finally, it you qualify for the GMS employee discount, you can receive $3,500 towards the purchase price or $2,500 towards a lease of a new 2012 Corvette. For the 2013 models, the amount for purchase or lease is $2,500. Check with your dealer for details.
