2009 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1
Thank the great recession for the destruction caused in Corvette production volume in 2009. It hurt all brands, but clearly sports cars with their discretionary nature were hit hardest. A total of only 16,956 Corvettes.
2012 Corvette ZR1
Corvette production was basically flat in 2012. The poor 2009 - 2011 production volumes continued essentially as Chevy was unable to get improved demand. A total of only 11,647 Corvettes rolled off the assembly line.
2017 Corvette C7 Z06
In 2017, a total of 32,782 Corvettes were produced. Production volume was down almost 8,000 units versus 2016 despite the introduced of the Z06 convertible and the Grand Sport Coupe and Convertible variants.
2008 Corvette
A total of 35,310 Corvettes rolled off the end of the assembly line for the 2008 production model year, the fourth year of the C6 generation Corvette. Production volumes fell slightly in 2008 (down from 40,561 units in 2007).
corvette monthly and quarterly sales
Earlier this month, Corvsport.com presented the sales statistics the most recent Corvette sales. We thought we'd take a moment to break down the sales numbers by month for the each generation.  For all Corvette owners (and prospective owners), these numbers are a key indicator of how the Corvette is performing in the marketplace.
The Corvette C5 was a better car across every function than its predecessor. Performance, quality, handling, packaging and functionality improved. Production volumes were consistent at between 30,000 and 35,000 units per year.
1977 Corvette
The 1977 Corvette set another new sales and production record at 49,213 units. The popularity of the Chevy Corvette throughout the 1970’s was proven time and again by the year over year increase in sales numbers despite the dramatic increases in cost.

Covid and supply chain issues did nothing to slow down the demand for the Corvette. The real question is whether there were lasting impacts from these big global events that impacted just how many Corvettes are produced. The good news is that the Corvette continue to win awards and it is in high demand. Let's take a look at Corvette sales volumes for the last few years and see just how it stacks up vs yesteryear.
