Even from those early 2014 Chevrolet C7 Corvette reviews it was clear that Chevy had come up with something very special, and impressive sales compared to its rivals is proof of that. The C7 has been outselling its rivals, something that would have been unheard of going back a few years, as the Corvette was more of a vehicle for people over a certain age.
Chevy C7 Corvette sales figures — This awesome sports car has managed to shift 17,744 units in the US from the start of the year up until the end of June, and so the first 6 months of 2014. This is rather impressive when you consider that only 5,673 units were sold in 2013.
Now compare these figures to the Porsche 911 and the Dodge SRT Viper, which sold 5,169 and 354 respectively, with the latter being laughable really.
We should not give the SRT too much ridicule seeing as though the vehicle is not exactly a decent car to be used on a day-to-day basis, something that both the C7 Stingray and 911 are. There is also its price as well, which starts at $102,000 and the 911 at $84,300.
Many drivers will say that the Porsche 911 is still the ultimate in terms of drivability, but there is no denying that Chevrolet has made some significant improvements, with some people even suggesting it is better than the Jaguar F-Type. This is certainly a bold claim, but we feel Chevy can back-up this claim.
Going back to the main story, according to an article on GM Authority, sales are not expected to slow down for the second half of 2014, as it is believed that around 35,000 C7 Stingray’s are expected to be shifted in total this year.
