U.S. Chevy Dealers Have 5,000+ Corvette C7s To Sell Until The C8 Enters Production

With production of the 2020 Corvette Stingray pushed back to February due to the UAW strike, Vette enthusiasts have only two choices.

The first would be to place an order for the mid-engined Corvette C8 and hope that delivery won’t take ages. The second choice is pick one of the 5,025 Corvette C7s sitting on dealer lots across the United States.

That’s how many brand new 2019 Corvettes remain available nationwide as of November 15, and they acount for a 122-day supply, calculated based on the number of days dealers will need to sell them out.

As Corvette C7 production ended last week to allow for the retooling of the plant, it means that these are the last front-engined Vettes available for sale – we’re only talking about brand new cars, obviously.

The data is from November 15 and comes from eInventoryNow, a website which helps dealers manage their inventories, and was brought to our attention by Corvette Blogger. The number does not include the cars produced just before the strike, but we should have a clearer picture next month when the final Corvette C7s produced will be added to the inventory as well.

With more than 5,000 Corvette C7s available for immediate purchase, dealers should be covered until the new generation model enters production. Based on the current sales rate, the C7 Corvette won’t be completely sold out until March 19, 2020. That’s good news for buyers who are looking for a good deal on a Corvette and don’t necessarily want the C8.

As a reminder, Chevrolet began offering a $3,000 Loyalty Bonus for Corvette owners in April that is still in effect today. So if you already own a Corvette, you’re automatically qualified it. Add to that the varying discounts offered by dealers and you’re looking a pretty sweet deal for one of the last brand new Corvettes with the engine at the front.
