Official: 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray

Amidst all of the hype regarding the launch of the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray early last week, some interesting news managed to slip through unnoticed confirming that not all American-based Chevrolet dealers will receive the new Corvette to sell.

In what Chevrolet dealers claim is a first for the company, General Motors is forcing businesses to meet a sales-volume threshold to stock the car and those dealerships which failed to sell at least four Corvette’s in 2012, will be left out from the new C7-generation Corvette.

Byron Hansen, from the Chevrolet dealership in Brigham City, Utah stated, “I don’t anticipate getting the new Corvette this year, and many smaller dealers like me won’t get it either.

Dealers also confirmed that they’ll be unable to stock the new Corvette simply for eye-candy purposes.

  1. I think is a lie I just talked to a local assistance and they said that this is not gm approved if u look at the chevrolet news u don't see nothing bout this so I'm going to take it as false in my opinion this would just ruin alot of things cuz alot of corvette will want to have it so all the dealers are going to get it so yea.

    • thats what ive been thinkin tho but im still going to college to get a degree and all that so once i start working ill give half the price downpayment once u can start ordering them cuz u cant start ordering them now tho u gotta wait till they release the actually prices but ill just wait till my dealership actually has them on their show rooms
