January 2016 Corvette Sales


The first month of Corvette sales for 2016 has been reported and the news isn’t that great. For January 2016, GM delivered 1,501 Corvettes which was a -29.4% decline from the same time period in January 2015 which saw 2,127 Corvettes sold.

It’s the second time in the modern C7 era that Corvette sales have dropped under 2,000 per month and it’s the lowest recorded sales month for the C7, sinking past November 2015’s 1,952 Corvette sales.

Corvette sales are susceptible to weather conditions and last month’s storm that blew across the country and dropped historic levels of snow on the East Coast is partly responsible. Looking through the archive, we know that demand does fall off during the winter months, but our concern though is that after 2.5 years of Stingray production, is demand for America’s sports car finally slowing down? We’ll have to watch and see.

Here’s the GM Sales Report for Corvettes in January 2016:

  1. For the record, I will never buy any car that has AFM cylinder deactivation. It’s problematic and just the thought of it is repulsive to a car enthusiast. I’m surprised that start/stop tech wasn’t thrown in for good measure!
    GM should be embarrassed by the problems they’ve had up to this point with the C7. And now the stories seem to be following the new Camaro. They are selling “ideas and dreams” over real world quality and dependability.
    Shame on GM.
