General Motors‘ December Production Reports and Sales Deliveries were published Wednesday, together with the cumulative numbers for the year. These Corvette figures are getting bigger (good news), but unfortunately are still far lower than what we used to see (bad news).
Production: following 1011 units being built during the abbreviated December plant schedule, 13,222 Corvettes had been produced by the end of the year.
Sales: 1038 Corvettes were delivered in December, a 6% increase over December 2011′s 979.
Sales for Calendar Year 2011 were 13,164, a 4.3% increase over 2010′s 12,624. However, these days are far different from 2006 and 2007, two years in which more than 33,000 Corvettes were sold.
Some people see signs of improvement in the economy, and we know anything can happen in an election year, so here’s to an increase in the number of delighted Corvette owners for 2012!
