The Top 50 Corvette Dealers of 2018

Another year has passed us by and with the start of 2019, we are now able to go back and which Chevrolet Dealers sold the most Corvettes. These annual rankings are based on actual Corvette sales from the 2018 calendar year.

What a year it has been too! The 2019 model year started at the end of January so last year saw over 11 months of 2019 model year production. The latest C7 in the model lineup, the 2019 Corvette ZR1, started production in March and nearly 1500 were completed before the end of the year break. However, the market has tightened considerably on new Corvette sales and GM isn’t really supporting the car with incentives and rebates. As a result, dealers have about 8,000 new Corvettes on their lots.

For the 2018 Calendar Year, GM sold 18,791 Corvettes in the USA, a decline of -25.1% over the 25,079 delivered during 2017.

Meanwhile, the 2020 C8 mid-engine Corvette continues to make the scene as the car has been recently sighted in and around Detroit. Will it make its debut and go on sale sometime this year? GM’s Corvette Team isn’t talking but indications are still positive that the Mid-Engine Corvette will be coming sometime in 2019.

All these changes have caused some disruption in the ranks as several new dealer names have been added to the Top 50 when compared with the final Top 50 Dealers of 2017. The top of the list has the same familiar names though as Kerbeck leads all with MacMulkin, Criswell Chevrolet (Mike Furman), Bomnin Chevrolet (Dadeland), and Les Stanford rounding out the Top 5.

A couple other interesting points: In 2017, Rick Hendrick’s group landed six dealerships on the list, and for 2018 Hendrick has added two more for a total of 8 dealerships in the top 50 which combined for 608 Corvette sales. That would be good for third on the list, however, GM does count each dealership’s sales individually which is why they are listed as such. Our home state of Florida remains the top state with 12 different dealers in the Top 50.

One more point to make a note of is that when Chevy rolled out the C7 Stingrays in 2013, they gave more initial allocations to the best selling Corvette dealers in the country. So if want to get your name on a dealers list for the C8, this is where I would start.

Finally, before we get to the Top 50, I always like put this disclaimer on the reason for publishing such a list. More Corvettes as a total are sold outside the dealers listed below and you should always go with the dealership that you are the most comfortable with during the buying process. We provide this list simply to give Corvette buyers a better idea of who is selling more Corvettes in their area. These dealerships tend to have greater on-site inventories as well as allocations available for your custom orders.

We have several dealers who sponsor CorvetteBlogger and they all sell new Corvettes at (or below) MSRP. If you’re in the market for a new Corvette, please check them out and go with the one that makes the most sense for you:
