2019 Corvette Production Volumes

Production of the 2019 Corvette will come to a close at the end of this month (September).  Now that all customer orders have been finalized, Chevrolet has released the official production statistics of the 2019 Corvette MY via the National Corvette Museum website.

Production of the 2019 Corvette began at the end of January, 2018 and ran approximately 20 months.  The 2019 ZR1 Corvette was the first model to complete its production run.  The last order cycle for the 2019 Corvette ZR1 closed at the end of May with production wrapping on the ZR1 approximately three weeks later (early-to-mid June.)  There may still be a few ZR1 Corvettes available at dealerships across the nation, but those would most likely be from earlier deals that fell thru after orders had been processed.

June 6th thru June 10th marked the final order cycle to order a seventh-generation Corvette convertible.  Chevrolet continued to accept orders for the C7 Coupe until July 18th (the date of the mid-engine Corvette reveal) although orders that were submitted by dealers without allocation were only accepted thru June 25th.

One of the other key production differentiator that often defines the rarity (and by association, the collectibility) of a production Corvette is its factory paint color.  In 2019, there were a total of twelve different paint colors offered.  While some of the more “traditional” colors (red, black and white) were the most commonly selected colors, some of the other top contenders for 2019 were a bit less traditional.

As production gets underway on the 2020 Mid-Engine Corvette in just a few weeks time, it will be interesting to compare these numbers with the production numbers of the new model year/next-generation Corvette.
