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).
2013 Corvette
Corvette production was basically flat for the final year of C6 production. GM offered a record 7 different models and we saw a total of only 13,466 Corvettes rolled off the end of the assembly line for the 2013 model year.
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.
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.
2010 Corvette ZR1
The great recession continued to impact Corvette production in 2010. A total of only 12,194 Corvettes rolled off the end of the assembly line for the 2010 production model year, down 28.1% from 2009’s paltry 16,956 units.
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.
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).
2005 Corvette
A total of 37,372 Corvettes rolled off the end of the assembly line for the 2005 production model year, the first year of the C6 generation Corvette. Production volumes jumped off to a great start for the C6.
2019 Corvette ZR1
In 2018 things really slowed down at the Corvette factory. Only 9,686 cars were made in 2018. For those keeping count 2018 was the lowest production volume year since 1959. Not terribly surprising given it was a shortened model year.
