    New Corvette is on the way -- but only for top Chevy dealers


    The seventh-generation Chevrolet Corvette, unveiled at the auto show this week, will be in showrooms by late summer. But some Chevy dealers will be left out. For the first time, General Motors is requiring Chevrolet dealers to meet a sales-volume threshold to carry the Corvette, dealers say. Dealers who failed to sell at least four Corvettes last year -- likely hundreds of Chevy stores -- won't get the 2014 Corvette, several dealers told Automotive News.

    I hope this plan doesn't backfire on them. This is the kind of thing that drives dealer principals crazy!

    IMO that's good, I know quite a few dealers that are Vette specialists and carry & sell hundreds a year. My friend's dealership in South jersey being one of them, already has quite a few allocations and I'm one of them. Why send the new Vette to a dealer in the middle of bumf**k, that'll never sell one.

    The only downside I see is if this all new C7 generates more interest then past generations and your local dealer can't get one - what next? Someone may not want to travel to find a dealer that does have the allocations.

    While it's great that Chevy is thinking of their most successful dealers, I'm curious how many cases will be brought to this forum where dealers are charging crazy "market adjustments" on the C7 thereby stunting future sales growth.

    Dealers EARNED the new stingray, based on how many corvettes they sold in 2012.....and that was known to many of them last year already.... 4 corvettes sold in 2012 = 1 new Stingray.

    This controlled allocation runs through the end of the year until full production ramps up at the end of the year. Dealers (except a select few ) will be marking them up... Those that don't surely will be sold out.
