Chevrolet Raises Price of the 2014 Corvette Stingray to Match Demand

One of the benefits of manufacturing the 2014 North American Car of the Year is knowing that your lineup centerpiece is in high demand. The Stingray, which is nearly-unanimously understood to be the best thing since sliced bread, has that kind of call, which is why it is not only more widely available across America, but also now going to cost you just a little bit extra.

Effective March 1, the price of the 2014 Corvette Stingray (both coupe and convertible models) increased by about $2,000. According to Motor Authority, this would bring the Corvette coupe’s base price (including destination fees) to $53,995 and the convertible’s base to $58,995. The Z51 Performance package will also be getting a small hike from $2,800 to $4,000.

“The reason for the increase is simply that customer demand for the Stingray, and especially the Z51 package, have exceeded our initial expectations. As such, we wanted adjust pricing in line with demand,” Monte Doran, Chevy’s PR specialist for the Corvette and Camaro, told AutoBlog.

It’s being reported that, since the price of the 2014 Corvette Stingray went up on March 1, models manufactured prior to that date are not subject to markup at certain dealerships. Additionally, drivers who already have their orders placed will not be affected by the price hike.

What’s your take: would a minor hike in the price of the 2014 Corvette Stingray deter you from buying Chevrolet’s win-everything sports car?

    I got my z51 vert 3 weeks ago. This is a 100k+ car. I’ve had Porsches, Ferraris and Vipers. This is definitely the best.

  • I am the proud owner of a new stingray z51. I also happen to own a Porsche 996 turbo. I am so impressed with the new corvette, great ride, great cornering, luxurious, sophisticated etc.he Porsche & Vette were same price id have to say id take the vette anyday. The new corvette should sell for over 100,000. I agree with the other comments.

  • Nut bags…. The new corvette was valued at 52,000 base and you guys are saying you’d pay 100$K. What a waste of human brains.

    Read between the lines, he’s not saying he would pay $100,000 but the car is equal to the $100,000 car. If you don’t own a corvette you would not understand.
