2012 Corvette Production Volumes

Corvette production was basically flat in 2012. The poor 2009 – 2011 production volumes continued essentially as Chevy was unable to get improve demand. A total of only 11,647 Corvettes rolled off the end of the assembly line for the 2012 production model year. That was slightly down from 2011s 13,596 units but nowhere near the pre-recession production numbers in the 30k unit range.

2012 Production Volume by Model Variant

As expected, the Grand Sport Coupe was the most popular model at 5,056 units (43.4% of total production) while the regular Corvette Coupe was second at 2,820 units (24.2% of total production). The Grand Sport Convertible came in next with 2,268 units (19.5% of total production) with the Corvette Base Convertible (621 units), Z06 (478 units) and ZR1 (404 units) sold with just 780 units making up 5.7% of production. The Z06 outsold the ZR1, with 904 Z06s made versus the ZR1s 806 units.
