Nearly Half Of All 2022 Corvette C8 Sales Are Convertibles

Buyers of the C8 Chevrolet Corvette clearly love having the wind in their hair as sales of the Convertible variant accounted for 48 per cent of 2022 model year production.

During a recent presentation at the National Corvette Museum Bash, the bow-tie band revealed that almost half of all C8 Corvette models sold are for the Convertible, despite being priced $7,500 more than an equivalent Coupe.

Chevrolet also confirmed that 52 per cent of all C8 Corvette Convertibles sold were equipped with the flagship 3LT trim package while 40 per cent of orders were for the 2LT trim and just 8 per cent were for the entry-level 1LT. These figures are quite different to those of the Corvette Stingray Coupe where the 1LT accounted for 22 per cent of orders, the 2LT brought in 45 per cent of buyers, and the 3LT equips the remaining 33 per cent.

Production of the 2022 Corvette recently ended and General Motors will start to build 2023 models at its Bowling Green factory on May 16, GM Authority reports.

Few changes have been made to the Corvette Stingray for the 2023 model year but what is new is the flagship Z06 variant. While we know it will be sold as a 2023 model, a date for the start of production has not yet been set, nor has pricing for the car been announced. Nevertheless, the Z06 is shaping up to be exceptionally popular and will probably be hard for shoppers to get their hands on one without placing an early order.

The jewel of the 2023 Corvette Z06 is its 5.5-liter naturally aspirated flat-plane crank V8 that pumps out 670 hp and 460 lb-ft (624 Nm), making it the most powerful naturally aspirated V8 ever fitted to a production car.
