It seems as if much has been publicized in recent years regarding the rarest of Corvettes, which are steeped in nostalgia due to their scarcity. However, seldom is the story told of particular model years where production has peaked, and sales have flourished. Although these less than rare Corvettes are abundant in number, they carry their own legacy, just the same.
2011 Corvette ZR1
The recession continued to impact Corvette production in 2011. A total of only 13,596 Corvettes rolled off the end of the assembly line for the 2011 production model year. That was slightly up from 2010s 12,194 units.
1963 Corvette Sting Ray Z06
The chassis featured an independent rear suspension with a single transverse leaf spring. 1963 was a big production year with the first year of the C2 Corvette seeing production of 21,513 units (and still demand exceeded supply).

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.
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.

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.
