Final 2015 Corvette Production Statistics


The second year of C7 Corvette production ended almost two weeks ago and thanks to our friends at the National Corvette Museum, we already have a breakdown of the final 2015 Corvette production statistics.

For the 2015 model year, Chevrolet build 34,240 Corvettes. Production decreased 8% from the 37,288 Corvette Stingrays built during the C7’s inaugural year, but we’ve been told that the production cycle for the 2014 model year was slightly longer than 2015.

Leading the production was the 2015 Corvette Stingray Coupe. GM built 20,757 Stingray Coupes which accounted for 60.6% of Corvette production. The Z06 Coupe was second with 6,980 built for a 20.4% share. The Corvette Stingray Convertible’s production was 4,830 for 14.1% and finally the Corvette Z06 Convertible total was 1,673 for 4.9%.

Of course the big news for 2015 Corvette was the return of the Z06. A total of 8,653 Corvette Z06s were produced in 2015 which makes it the highest rollout of the Z06 vs the previous inaugural years of 1963 (199), 2001 (5,773) and 2006 (6,272). Of 2015’s Corvette Z06 production, nearly 40% opted for the Z07 Performance Package. Also, what is significant is that Z06 buyers went with the top 3LZ options package (68.6%) while 25.4% chose the 2LZ options group and a lowly 5.6% opted for the base 1LZ package.

Stingray Corvette production totaled 25,587 in 2015. The Z51 package continues to be popular with 53% of buyers opting for the performance package. Another 21% checked the box on the Stingray Appearance Package (ZF1) which added the Z51’s 19/20 inch wheels and rear spoiler. As far as the options group choices, the 2LT package was the most popular at 41.5% while 3LT Stingrays accounted for 38.2%. The base package was chosen by 19.8% of buyers.

Speaking of the Stingray, Chevrolet rolled out two new Design Packages for the 2nd year of C7 production. The Atlantic and Pacific versions weren’t built until the end of the year, and only 17 chose the Atlantic Design Package for their Stingray Convertibles while 97 opted for the Stingray Coupe Pacific Design. These amount to 0.1% (Atlantic) and 0.4% (Pacific) of the Corvette Stingray’s production so these should be rare cars one day.

Folks always like to know what the breakdown is with the 7-speed manual transmission vs the new 8-speed automatic. For the 2015 Corvette Stingray, that breakdown was 25.6% manual and 74.4% automatic. For the Z06, the take rate on the 7-speed manual was 51.6% while the new 8-speed auto accounted for 48.4%. The automatics started production a little over a month after the 7-speed manuals so perhaps this will change for 2016.

Colors are also something we like to keep watch. Arctic White was the #1 color of the year, topping Corvette Stingray production and coming in second on the Z06. Here are the top five colors for the Stingray and Z06:

Top Colors: 2015 Corvette Stingray

  1. Arctic White (19.8%)
  2. Torch Red (17.2%)
  3. Shark Gray (14.8%)
  4. Black (13.9%)
  5. Laguna Blue (8.3%)


Top Colors: 2015 Corvette Z06

  1. Black (18.1%)
  2. White (16.0%)
  3. Shark Gray (15.6%)
  4. Torch Red (14.2%)
  5. Velocity Yellow (8.2%)


Black wheels were also very popular and totaled 47.6% of Stingray buyers going with one of the three versions of black. 35.9% of Stingray buyers selected the Black ZF1/Z51 wheels, 7.2% selected the Black Machine-faced ZF1/Z51 wheels and the base gloss black where was chosen by 4.5% of buyers. Black wheels also were the top choice for the Z06 with 53.8% going with the dark wheel color. The Chrome Z06 wheels were 2nd with 26.5% of buyers.

We broke out the final 2015 Corvette product statistics below based on the data provided by the National Corvette Museum. However, we also tried to break out the percentage of production. Some of the numbers we got from GM were combined Stingray/Z06 while other options were Stingray only or Z06 only. Wherever possible, we computed the percentages based on either Stingray or Z06 production. If the numbers were combined, the percentages were based on the total production of 34,240 Corvettes for 2015.

  3. My 2015 Corvette Conv. has the package build of Leather Adrenaline Red (701) only 111 with this package, has QX3 chrome wheels , Car is Torch Red

  4. I ordered c7 zo6 convertable crystal red with full lenth visible carbon fiber stripes. I did not see a production number on full length visible carbon stripes. Could someone give me that number.

  5. velocity yellow coupe vin #68 built on first day of production also a 8speed auto .

  6. I was wondering … I have a 2015 velocity yellow convertible with full crystal red dual racing stripes and ZF1 and gloss black wheels and Adrenaline Red Leather 1LT Plus Adrenaline Red console cover(added) 8 speed automatic How many built like that

  7. I got one of the Pacific Design Packages. LOOOOOOVE IT! Build day was June 10, so must have been one of the last few. What is even better is I bough it last week and got 7k off the MSRP! I am pleased to know that there are only 97 others of us!

  8. I wish to Buy a Corvette 2016 in Bay area. But I do not see any offers or even a scope for lowering the price with the dealers. Why are dealers so hard with lowering the price for a corvette?

    In 2015, only 34k corvettes were manufactured. That low a volume and GM doesn’t need to apply incentives to purchase. % Stingray Coupe2075760.6% Stingray Convertible483014.1% Z06 Coupe698020.4% Z06 Convertible16734.9% ______________ TOTAL34240100% / A…

  10. I noted in the stats for 2015 Corvettes provided by the National Corvette Museum that all of the ‘Vettes with inferno orange stripes were convertibles. I have a shark gray metallic coupe with full length inferno orange stripes that I picked up at the National Corvette Museum in March. I’m confused. Is it 4 or 5 cars with inferno orange stripes? Or is it possible I have the only ’15 coupe with orange stripes? Talk about rare.

  11. I am the first retail order of the ATI edition. Harlan said the first the first three went to collections! Crystal Red Tint coat ,A8, CF dash, 3lt, Kalahari int and top, Mag ride, NCM delivery on 17 APR 2015 which is posted on You Tube. Three corvette shows three trophies . I have posted on the forum to try to get a ATLANTIC registry going but didn’t get any replies . Oh well?? Most C7 owners have NO idea what this option was and I have gotten a couple of [corvette always make hundreds of special editions] . Was going to get an AMG but special ordered the Atlantic after driving a 2014 Z51 on the track and never looked back. FIRST Corvette and I think they are Great sport cars. Probably will never sell it unless offered a HUGE premium. /Users/tarepas/Desktop/IMG_1914.jpg

  14. My order form had the front camera checked off but I did not get it. It is a ZO6. LT3 (C7) convertible . Built in June and delivered in July of 2015. I ordered every option possible.

  15. Was just going through the 2015 statistics. I’m the proud owner of one of the four full length orange striped corvettes!! I didn’t purchase it new. It had ben traded in. I had about 6 other cars to chose from. When I first saw the car I wasn’t interested in the color scheme, black with the full length dubble orange stripe, but as I was considering one from the other cars,I kept looking back at the car. The more I looked at it, the more it started to appeal to me. It was different, it looked racy, fast, a head turner. Now that I have found its one of four, I love it even more! B.

  18. They are decals. I have the original window sticker. It says it was a 950.00 option. Do you have anymore information? Did they paint them on as well. Sorry it took me so long to respond. I will check back soon for your reply. B

  19. Need some information please.
    Can you tell me how many 2015/2016 Corvette Convertibles with the Z07 Pkg were produced in Nightrace Blue with the Adrenaline Red interior ?

    I sold one to a good friend, and he was asking if there were any like it in the country.

  20. Why offer 3 different trim packages (1LT, 2LT, 3LT) and for Z06 (1LZ, 2LZ, 3LZ) ? With how few 1LT/1LZ sold, they should just have the 2LT be ever so slightly toned down and listed as 1LT, and have the 3LT remain the same and be listed as the 2LT.

  21. Does anybody know how many of the 17 Atlantic Design, 2015, 2LT Convertibles were made with the Z51 package, Artic White with red interior? Just curious…thanks.

    I think there were from 16 to 160 max of this car
    What do you think

  24. So does one simply multiply the percentages listed for each option by the result of the previous to come up with the theoretical odds of a similar car being built. If so, mine seems quite limited.

    Sorry to see this Night Race Blue color go away, and all Corvettes are stick shifts, the rest are mistakes! Ooops…. 😉

  25. I photographed a 2015 Stingray with orange stripes on the lot of Hare Chevrolet in Noblesville, Indiana back in November, 2014. ( http://palmeter.com/corvettec7production/ ). It was a silver car; B. Pierce (per post above) bought a black with orange that had been sold new from Hare. So apparently Hare sold at least 50% of the ‘Inferno Orange’ stripe car production. Pretty amazing for a small Midwestern town!

  26. trying to find production numbers? on my 2015 daytona sunrise z51, auto with paddle shift, data recorder and upgraded stereo with reverse camera, mag ride,and chrome wheels any help would be greatly appreciated. thanks

  27. I purchased a 2015 Stingray Converible in Shark Grey with a Kalahari Top and Interior. I selected the painted vent option as well as almost every other option. I have never seen another one like it but get plenty of “Wow” comments. I often wonder if it is the only one made in this color combination?

  28. I purchased my torch red Pacafic Design Edition, Z51, 2LT in November 2015. The car is number 80 of 97 built and has the 8 speed paddle shift automatic, performance data recorder, competition seats, carbon flash full length strips and ground effects package. This is the third corvette I’ve owned and is without a doubt the best one yet. I truly enjoy driving the car and love it’s looks.
