Despite the absence of notable, physical changes to the design of the car, the overall sales numbers of the 1993 Corvette actually increased over previous years. A total of 22,058 Corvettes were manufactured and sold, marking 1993 the first model year in four years to actually witness an increase in its numbers. Additionally, the ZR-1 Corvette received the accolades of being the winner of the top speed category of Car & Driver’s “Ten Best” issue (January, 1994). Despite this, the ZR-1’s numbers continued to head south, with just 448 units being produced that year.
A total of 16,346 coupes were built in 1993 (including cars with the ZR1 option code). The base coupe (no ZR1 package) accounted for 72.07% of production at 15,898 units while the base convertible accounted for 25.90% of production volume at 5,712 units made. Of the 16,346 coupes, 448 coupes had the ZR1 package chosen and made up 2.03% of total volume for the year.
