Sales slowing?

It appears that the cost increase as well as fulfilling initial demand may finally be slowing the sales rate. usually had about 1800 C7s for sale and now it is climbing quickly in the last week to almost 2200. Additionally at least one forum dealer is now offering $5k off convertibles.

Or perhaps it is that people are now waiting for the 2015 with the multitude of changes.

It will be interesting to see what the discounts will be on leftover 2014s in another month or two, and if the demand for 2015s stays steady.

My guess is that GM will have to start including more content for no price increase as there just is not a market for $65-80k Corvettes to the tune of 20000 units/year. The >35000 units/year occurred last decade during the days of home price appreciation allowing equity to be used to splurge on toys, but also when the Corvette was not as expensive.

As long as the stock mkt stays strong so do retirement/401k plans for many buying vettes. So from I see in the industry:
1. Vette sales nationally are still strong, days supply is one of the lowest out there.
2. Financing is still strong, housing is picking up
3. You csn look at a few dealers that are giving discounts but the majority of urban dealers are still getting MSRP.

The 14 build out will go fine and 15 will be another great year for vettes, GM is not gonna have to do a damn thing to sell them, except make them. Dint look for trunk money on the car unless Wall Street crashes like in 08.
Based on prod numbers, I can't believe any z06s will be left open to buy when it's finally released......
