According to a Detroit News poll, with so far 531 votes, below are the StingRay favorite colors. The question in the poll was: "What's your favorite 2014 C7 Corvette Stingray color?"

Torch Red (17%, 91 Votes)
Laguna Blue Tintcoat (16%, 85 Votes)
Arctic White (15%, 78 Votes)
Cyber Gray Metallic (10%, 52 Votes)
Crystal Red Tintcoat (9%, 47 Votes)
Lime Rock Green Metallic (9%, 47 Votes)
Velocity Yellow Tintcoat (8%, 41 Votes)
Black (6%, 34 Votes)
Night Race Blue Metallic (6%, 33 Votes)
Blade Silver Metallic (4%, 23 Votes)

Note this is a "readership" poll, not color selection based on who purchased, nor ordered what color.

Actually, yellow has been historically one of the least popular corvette colors, usually second or third from the bottom. My 2015 will be yellow and so I am "positively biased." I breathed a sigh of relief when Doug Feehan stated in January that the C7.R will be yellow, for that means it will continue to be an offered color even if yellow is one of the less popular colors. Two previous polls this year, but those among buyers of the StingRay (as opposed to Detroit News readers), had yellow as only a 4% selected color, with LRG and silver being the only colors with fewer selections -- and night Race blue being only slightly more popular. Those polls were much earlier this year. Here, for example is a Corvette forum poll which asked, at the end of March, which color will you be ordering:

WHAT COLOR ARE YOU ORDERING ?
Arctic White 6 6.67%
Black 9 10.00%
Blade Silver 6 6.67%
Crystal Red 3 3.33%
Cyber Gray 20 22.22%
Laguna Blue 18 20.00%
Lime Rock Green 1 1.11%
Night Race Blue 11 12.22%
Torch Red 10 11.11%
Velocity Yellow 6 6.67%

Another exterior color comparison, this from Kerbeck's first 198 orders:

Laguna Blue - 10
Lime Rock Green - 1
Velocity Yellow - 7
Arctic White - 16
Blade Silver - 1
Black - 31
Crystal Red - 23
Cyber Grey - 51
Torch Red - 37
Night Race Blue - 12
