Default New Corvette Sales Skyrocket

Click the image to open in full size.

You've got to wonder if even General Motors expected the new Corvette Stingray to be as big of a hit as it is now. Sure, they definitely knew they had something special when all the reviews started pouring in, but the C7 is turning out to be one of the biggest home runs any automaker has had over the past decade. In fact, you'd be hard pressed to find any sane person disputing that ... even among fans of rival brands.

More on the blog.

I see them absolutely everywhere. I see more C7s than all other Vettes combined on the streets.

I guess another potential barometer of the C7's failure will have to be abandoned.

I live in a pretty busy area and I have only seen 3 or 4 since I got mine in November . I was going to keep my C6 but I am so glad I got my C7 when I did . I can see why sales are going well , it's a sexy machine .....

Give it a year, you say, when the Corvette will be as common as a bellybutton. But like a pierced one, the C7 will still be impossible to ignore.

That's also about the number I have seen since September - at least locally - more closer to New Orleans, but few and far between in South La.

There are only 3 in my town of 80K. Sure the C7 is a hit, but 30K cars (anticipaated for the 2014 build) is hardly a blip on the Machine that is GM...

My home club, Circle City Corvettes in Dothan, AL has 8 now and two more on order for a total of 10 among the members.
Use to be having the first year made you something special.
It's a good thing.

I have not seen any here in Jersey, seen three in Florida and had the pleasure of following another NRB C7 on Route 95 North for a while.

I would imagine we should see production numbers in line with the first year of the C6 and possibly better

I'm in Chicago and see them all over.

My brother sells Vettes, but his dealership only gets about 20 a year.

They've sold every incoming Vette and have a waiting list.

His dealership is doing whatever they can do get more Vettes.

I guess the other dealers don't want to give up a Vette unless his dealership is willing to give up a desirable car, so it's a Catch 22.
