Sales of the Chevy Corvette C7 shrink as the presentation of the new C8 approachesJune 18, 2019
We are just one month away from the world debut of the long-awaited Chevy Corvette C8 sports coupe. Our foreign colleagues report that the possibilities to acquire the current generation of the model (index C7) with a front-mounted engine remain less and less – the reserves of the Chevy Corvette C7 version are rapidly decreasing.
It is reported that at the moment, dealers have a little more than 7,000 copies of the 2018 model year Chevy Corvette C7, while the number of older cars (2018 produced) does not exceed 200. Thus, now the dealers of the American company have 98 -day stock of this car. It is reported that after this week it will be impossible to order the Corvette C7 with the options you want.
This should not be a big problem, as more than 7,000 cars are still plenty, and there is a good chance that you will find something to your taste, presumably with a good discount, since dealers will most likely want to remove excess inventory. to make room for a new car.
At the moment, it is known that the mid-engine (C8) Corvette mass production will not start right after its presentation on July 18. At least about two months is necessary for the conversion of the plant. The gradual decline in sales of the current C7 has already begun, and foreign publications have reported that Chevy dealers are taking the latest orders for a more powerful version of the ZR1.
As much as we would like to see the mid-engine Corvette in production form, it cannot be denied that the upcoming C7 sales end is the end of an era. It was rumored that two generations of the model will coexist peacefully in the market for some time, but this will not happen.
