GM is only reporting official sales numbers quarterly but we were able to get our hands on the Corvette sales report for February 2019 which showed just over 1,000 deliveries for the month. That’s a 24% decrease in deliveries from the 1,351 sold in February 2018.

February’s sales were better than the disastrous January 2019 deliveries which at 800 was the lowest month of sales ever during the C7 generations production run.

For the calendar year to date (Jan-Feb), just over 1,800 Corvettes have been delivered.

Rumors of C8 production starting in December has people trying to backtrack the production schedule of the C7. If the December startup date holds, we think that 2019 model year production will come to a halt sometime late this summer. We can probably expect to see a plant shutdown for the model year changeover that could last a month or two before starting back up and producing C8s.

Additional signals for the looming end of the C7 will come from the dealers as certain colors and options in the next few months become constrained and/or final early buildout dates are issued.

That could be one of the reasons that Chevy isn’t too concerned with the inventory of the C7s nationwide which has grown to 9000+ as of last month. To help dealers move remaining 2018 Corvettes, Chevy is now offering a new 0% APR for 72 Months through April 1st.

Our Corvette sales Archive will next be updated in April 2019 with the release of the GM’s official 1st Quarter Corvette sales numbers.
