As part of the Michelin NCM Bash, Corvette Chief Engineer Tadge Juechter along with Corvette Product Manager Harlan Charles and Exterior Designer Kirk Bennion lead a seminar, sharing how the current model year numbers are looking in addition to what’s coming down the pipeline. This year’s event highlighted data for the 2019 model year, through April 1.
Kicking off the data shared was a run down of how many of each model were sold with the 1LT Stingray Coupe topping the list, followed by Grand Sport Coupe 2LT, then Z06 Coupe 2LT and ZR1 Coupe 3ZR. A total of 27,868 Corvettes have been produce for the 2019 model year as of April 1.
The model year is longer than usual, with Stingray, Grand Sport and Z06 production starting on January 29, 2018 and ZR1 production starting March 5, 2018. Though GM will be auctioning off the final C7 on June 28 (a black 2019 Z06), as with past models the car will not have been produced in time to make an appearance at the auction. The final date of C7 production has not yet been announced.
