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.

The production stats tell us a lot about Corvette buyers. They prefer the Coupes over Convertibles (71.3% vs 28.7%) and the Z51 performance package was selected more often than not (56.6% vs 43.4%). One of the most watched options is the take rate on the manual vs automatic transmissions. Nearly two thirds (64.6%) of Corvette owners selected the automatic 6-speed with paddle shifters while manual transmissions were selected by 35.4% of buyers.

Corvette owners also like their new Stingrays loaded as just over half of the Corvettes built (52.9%) in 2014 came with the 3LT Preferred Equipment Group. Other notable upgrades include 35.9% of Z51 Corvette buyers also selected the Z51 Magnetic Ride Suspension. The box for the NPP Performance Exhaust was checked off by 83.6% of buyers and the Navigation Radio was selected by 81.6% of buyers.

For the first time in a long time, Torch Red became the most popular color at 19.3% with Arctic White (16.5%) and Black (15.9%) rounding out the top three. Those three colors represent over half of all Corvette Stingrays built in 2014. The two lowest production colors were Night Race Blue which represents 4.9% and Lime Rock Green at 4.2%. For 2015, Chevrolet has discontinued Lime Rock Green and Sunrise Orange Metallic will be offered in its place.

And finally, part of the stats include export destinations for the Corvette Stingray. While 34,678 of the 37,288 Corvettes were made for American buyers, a total of 2,691 Corvettes were sold outside the country. Nearly half of those exports (1,193) went to Canada while Europe and the United Kingdom accounted for 612 Stingrays, the Middle East had 447 Corvettes and Japan’s sales totaled 224.

Here’s the data from the 2014 Corvette Stingray production which was released late last week by the National Corvette Museum:
