For the first time in several years, the 1989 model year would actually see an increase in the total sales numbers of the Chevrolet Corvette. Even with the knowledge that the ZR-1 Corvette’s arrival was certain in 1990, Chevrolet sold a total of 26,412 Corvettes in 1989, of which nearly 10,000 units were convertibles.
The coupe accounted for 63% of production at 16,663 units while the convertible accounted for 37% of production volume at 9,749 units made. The Callaway twin-turbo option, which now carried an additional cost of $25,895 over the Corvette’s base price, accounted for a mere 69 Corvette sales in 1989.
