It’s the first of the month and today General Motors reported the sales report from August 2015. For the month, GM sold 2,725 Corvettes for a 1.7% gain over sales of 2,679 Corvettes during the same month in 2014. For the Calendar Year to Day (CYTD), a total of 23,826 Corvettes have been delivered between January and the end of August. This is 1.5% ahead of where we were last year with 23,483 Corvettes delivered.
In looking at the month to month sales from July 2015 to August 2015, Corvette sales were down by 69 cars for a decline of -2.5%.
Despite being in the 3rd month of production on the 2016s which started in Mid-June, many of the new options are just coming online. It’s just been within the last two weeks or so that the new Long Beach Red and Corvette Yellow cars have started production. We are anticipating that the three new design packages will be queued up for production shortly as well as the hotly anticipated C7.R Z06 edition which GM promised in 4th quarter.
