Here they are, for the first half of 2014, C7 sales by dealer. Amazingly the top 99 dealers (out of 3,100 Chevy dealers nationwide), accounted for 41.5% of total Corvette sales.

The Top Corvette Dealers of 2014 – Mid Year Report
by KEITH CORNETT on JULY 10, 2014

Since we are halfway through 2014, we wanted to provide an update to the popular post we made after 1st Quarter 2014 regarding the Top dealers of the Chevrolet Corvette. For the calendar year starting in January and running through June 30, 2014, GM has reported a total of 17,744 Corvettes sold. The top Corvette dealers on this list account for 41.5% of those sales which total 7,370.

So why do we put this list out there?

We believe when buying any car that knowledge is power, but let’s face it, the Corvette is a niche vehicle and some dealers know more about the new C7 than others. Knowing as much possible about the sales environment can help a buyer a number of ways: Identifying the dealers that have experience with Corvette sales, negotiation of the sale, and finally deciding which dealer may earn your service business after the delivery.

We have several dealers who sponsor our website and they all sell new Corvettes at (or below) MSRP. If you’re in the market for a new Corvette Stingray or want to starting thinking about where you are going to purchase a 2015 Corvette Z06, please check them out and go with the one that makes the most sense for you:

Kerbeck Corvette – Atlantic City, NJ – Dave Salvatore – 877-537-2325
Criswell Corvette – Gaithersburg, MD – Mike Furman – 301-212-4420
Sport Chevrolet – Silver Spring, MD – Robert Kramer – 888-880-9772
Purifoy Chevrolet – Fort Lupton, CO – Marissa Marx – 303-535-5095
Here’s the latest GM sales figures per dealership through the halfway mark of 2014:

Hendrick group has an ownership interest in all of them but they operate independently.

I'm #3 on the Z06 list with #93. They were in the 50's earlier this year.

Called my salesman to find out why the drop in sales rank. His response...wait for it..."we can't get allocation."

Ugh! Getting my Z06 is probably a pipe dream.

They could have dropped because they did not order every single non-Z51 which was offered to them. The history this year was that dealerships had Z51 waiting lists, but, by Feb. or so, did not have any waiting on base cars. To match an order for every single allocation a dealership was given, they had to order base cars for dealer stock, and then actively search for buyers for them. Maybe that dealership passed on some of their base allocations they were given.

I know the local dealership started getting a ton of base cars in their rear stock holding area, trying to find buyers for them.

Rodney, you have hit on a major reason why certain dealers are gaining allocation, others are losing it. Talked to a dealer who is growing his allocation, and to get one more Corvette next year, he just purchased a unsold base StingRay from another dealer, and in other to get it, he also had to take/pay for 10 Cruzes. He is doing what he needs to expand his Corvette allocation, consistent with their dealership's long term strategy of becoming a bigger Corvette dealership in future years. Is that dealership taking a risk that they will lose money on some or all of those ten Cruzes. Absolutely.

That dealer that traded him the base StingRay, which will cost them "one next-year Corvette allocation," is one his/her way to becoming a smaller Corvette dealership.

My dealer is 78 on the list. Interestingly that had several including mine that they got from other dealers that didn't want to hold them or traded for something their small market fit better.

Area 473

I got 2014 LRG ZF1 from my local dealer and have no idea how many he sold other than mine. That's all that mattered to me.
