It wasn’t long ago that I read the C7 Corvette sales were struggling due to incoming C8. Just 2 months ago GMauthority.com reported that there were 9,000 unsold Chevrolet Corvettes crowding dealer lots and then as of 3 days ago they are now reporting that number has dropped by over 2,000 cars. The C7 is a hot Corvette and even with the C8 on the horizon people are still inclined to buy one.

Reference: The C7 Corvette Inventory Is Diminishing Regardless of Upcoming C8 Reveal.


There is a lot of unknowns with the C8 Corvette, many of which won’t be answered until the July 18th reveal, and that is one of the biggest reasons the C7 Corvette is still very appetizing to some.

The 7th generation Corvette stands to possibly be the last of the front engine Corvette and because of this could also act as a collectible to some. There are more than a few proud Corvette owners out there that still don’t want to see the mid-engine layout of the C8 as a “pure” Corvette and because of this, will continue along with their C7 Corvettes or even possibly jump up a model or 2 in order to maintain the “best” possible 7th generation Corvette experience.

The GMauthority website goes on to say that the remaining C7 Corvettes the dealers have equate to a 98-day supply which will make the C7 available for a touch over 3 months. At this point we are less than a month away from the reveal of the C8 Corvette and if it fails to impress that 98-day supply could be cut down drastically but of course if it is revealed and it blows everyone away then that 98-day supply just became a much, much longer supply.

I purchased my corvette a week ago. supply in south Florida is dwindling. Many of the dealers have a handful left. Mostly Stingrays with automatic transmission or the occasional ZR1 monster. But the deals are there, you can get them close to 20% under invoice for the stingrays.

Saw two truckloads of C7s heading north on I-95 in Maryland today, so they're still coming out of the factory.
