Competition Sales Comparison (USA)

The very impressive triple-digit jump in Chevy Corvette sales in the U.S. during Q2 2021 enabled the perennial sports car to remain the best-selling model in its class. In fact, the Corvette outsold all other rivals combined, including the Porsche 911, Porsche 718 (née Cayman/Boxster), Mercedes-AMG GT, Mercedes-Benz SL, Mercedes-Benz SLC, Audi R8 (see running Audi R8 sales), Nissan GT-R, Ford GT (see running Ford GT sales), Acura NSX and BMW i8.

The performance represents an ongoing improvement in Corvette sales volume, following strong numbers posted in Q1 2021 as well as Q3 2020 and Q4 2020. During all three quarters, Corvette sales accounted for 51 percent or higher segment share. However, as we typically note, many contenders in this segment cost significantly more than the Corvette and naturally see lower sales volumes as a result.

During the second quarter of 2021, Corvette managed to double its segment share to 62 percent from 34 percent a year ago. The second-place Porsche 911 – the most cross-shopped rival with the C8 – accounted for roughly a third as many sales with 18 percent segment share, down from 31 percent in the year-ago quarter. The Porsche 718 line, comprised of the 718 Cayman and 718 Boxster, followed in third place with a 7 percent segment share – the same as during the year-ago quarter. The Porsches were followed by the Mercedes-Benz AMG GT with 9 percent and the Audi R8 with 2 percent. All other models, including the Mercedes-Benz SL-Class, Nissan GT-R, Acura NSX, Ford GT, Mercedes-Benz SLC-Class, and BMW i8, each saw a segment share of 1 percent or less.

The premium sports car segment expanded an average of over 78 percent to 12,809 units in Q2 2021, meaning that Corvette sales outpaced the segment nearly three-fold.

The GM Authority Take

The substantial growth in Chevy Corvette sales during the second quarter of 2021 continues to be welcome news, especially given that the last-generation model – the Corvette C7 – has been out of production since November 2019, while the launch of the new-generation 2020 Corvette C8 got off to quite a rocky start.

First, production was delayed due to the UAW strike toward the end of the 2019 calendar year. Then, once production commenced, it was paused shortly thereafter due to the coronavirus outbreak, preventing GM from building enough units to generate any substantial sales volumes or fulfilling reservations and orders. Specifically, the Corvette C8 began arriving at dealers in limited quantities in March 2020, while the COVID-19 pandemic caused production to be idled about a week thereafter, with less than 3,000 units of the C8 produced.

C8 production restarted in mid-May 2020, but very few units actually ended up making it to dealerships and into customers’ hands by the time the Q2 2020 ended. This combination of events, combined with substantial pent-up demand, enabled the Corvette to post such impressive sales figures for the first two quarters of 2021, along with the final two quarters of 2020.

With interest in the new mid-engine Corvette at an all-time high, most C8 Corvette buyers being new to the Chevy brand, and transaction prices at all-time highs, we expect Chevy Corvette sales to continue increasing, so long as production continues uninterrupted at the GM Bowling Green plant that assembles the vehicle, and at the GM Tonawanda Engine plant, which assembles the 6.2L V8 LT2 engine used in the C8 Stingray. As of this writing, the Bowling Green Assembly plant has been running at full production capacity across two shifts ever since June 7th and 2022 Corvette models are set to enter production in early September.

Better still, the Corvette C8 success story has just begun, with many high(er)-performance variants still on the horizon, including the C8 Z06, C8 E-Ray, C8 ZR1 and C8 Zora. The high-revving C8 Z06 will be the first out of the gate, launching for the 2023 Corvette model year. Once these models launch over the next several years, we expect Corvette sales to widen their dominance over the competition even further.
