GM released their corporate sales report for February 2016 this morning. Corvette sales for February totaled 2,116 cars, a decrease of -18.8% over the same time in 2015 which saw Corvette sales at 2,605 units. For the Calendar Month to Date, GM has sold 3,617 Corvettes, a decrease over 2015’s -23.6%.
Corvette sales did show a rebound following the 1,501 Corvettes sold in January 2016. The 2,116 Corvettes sold in February 2016 represents an increase of 615 cars for a 40.97% increase.
Of course the big news today is the reveal of a new Corvette model for 2017, the Corvette Grand Sport, which will start production sometime this summer. We believe that the Grand Sport will have an immediate impact on the sales of the Corvette Stingray, not only for buyers of new Corvettes but also on the secondary market.
What we will be watching in the coming months is to see if today’s Grand Sport announcement will slow sales as buyers wait for the new model.
Here’s the GM Sales Report for Corvettes in February 2016:
