While we were out playing last week at SEMA, GM released their monthly sales report for October. Corvette sales still remain strong with 2,526 delivered in October 2015. This is a decrease of 14.6% from the 2,959 Corvettes which were delivered the year prior. For the Calendar Year to Date, a total of 28,924 Corvettes have been delivered this year which is pacing 2014’s deliveries by 0.1%.
Comparing the deliveries in October 2015 vs September 2015, sales were lower by 46 cars (2,526 vs 2,572), a decrease of 1.79%.
The most notable news for Corvette production in October was the production of the 2016 Corvette Z06 C7.R Editions. Chevy is building 650 of these special editions of which 500 are for the United States while the other 150 will be exported. We featured the first R8C museum delivery (VIN 009) which you can check out here.
This month we also got word about two color changes. Today is the last day to order a Corvette in Night Race Blue. Daytona Sunrise Orange can be ordered through December 17th.
On the flip side, we’ve learned that the Spice Red Design Package is now available for ordering. Our choice would be a Long Beach Red Convertible with the Red Convertible top.
