A total of 117,964 C2 Corvettes were produced over the five year production cycle for the second generation Corvette. A relatively short lived model the C2 sold a lot of convertibles at 72,418 units versus the 45,546 coupes made.
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.
