This morning General Motors released the Corvette sales report for May 2016. During the month, a total of 2,673 Corvettes were delivered for a -23.9% decline from May 2015 when 3,514 Corvettes were delivered.
For the Calendar year to date sales, a total of 12,185 Corvettes were sold between January 1st and May 31st which is a -21.4% decline from the same time period in 2015.
GM did offer two different rebate programs during the month of May but currently we haven’t seen any continuation of the programs in June.
May was the last month for full production of the 2016 model and it will officially cease on June 24th. The factory will be taking a two-week summer hiatus and then 2017s will start up in early July. With GM staggering production (the 2017 Z06 will not start production until September), it’s most likely we will not see full production numbers again from the Bowling Green Assembly Plant until later this fall.
Here’s the GM Sales Report for Corvettes in May 2016:

GM sold 190,613 retail vehicles in May, down 13% from last May due to two fewer selling days as well as tight supplies of newly launched cars and trucks. Customer demand has exceeded supply for new vehicles including the Chevrolet Malibu and Cruze as well as the Cadillac XT5 and CT6. GM’s truck and crossover sales also continued to show growth in the retail marketplace.
