This morning, General Motors released their monthly sales report for September 2015 and the outlook still looks great for Corvette. For the month, GM sold 2,572 Corvettes, an increase of 4.3% over the 2,467 Corvettes sold in September 2014. For the Calendar Year to Date, a total of 26,398 Corvettes have been built and we are trending 1.7% ahead of the 25,950 Corvettes sold during the same time period last year.
For the comparison of sales in September 2015 vs August 2015, there was a decrease of 153 Corvettes (2,572 vs 2,725) or -5.61%.
Probably the best news to come out of Bowling Green was that production has started on the 2016 Corvette Z06 C7.R Edition, of which VIN 001 was presented and sold at Barrett-Jackson for $500,000 last weekend. Chevrolet is building 650 Corvette Z06 C7.Rs with 500 dedicated to the United States and 150 will be exported. GM promised these cars in 4th quarter so its great to see them in early 4th quarter as opposed to later in the year.
