2014 Chevy Corvette Stingray Availability to Increase
The 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray was a game-changer from the moment it was unveiled to a crowd of adoring fans (who all suddenly couldn’t help from drooling like little toddlers). Corvette fans across the nation immediately began to clamor for the Stingray, but its exclusivity would prove to be a problem.
Originally, Chevy limited 2014 Chevy Corvette Stingray availability to just 900 Chevy dealerships across the country. These dealerships all had sold at least four ‘Vettes the previous year, proving their worth at moving the sports car. The other 2,100 Chevy dealerships were left empty-handed.
The exclusivity of the Stingray served to create a fair amount of hype. In fact, 7,000 units were moved in just the first two months that the Stingray came to market. But now that the hype has been built and the sports car icon has proven itself, Edmunds is reporting that Chevy plans to open up 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray availability to any Chevy dealership that wants to participate.
This doesn’t mean that the dealership down the road from you will suddenly have a large inventory of Stingrays, however. Some dealers may still opt out of the program. Why? Because selling the beloved Corvette Stingray isn’t the cheapest thing in the world; there are extra requirements for the dealership. The most expensive requirement is a one-and-a-half day training session held in Pahrump, Nevada, at Spring Mountain Motorsports Ranch. The training alone costs two grand per participant, plus travel costs.
That said, here’s to hoping that there will be a Corvette Stingray coming soon to a dealership near each and every one of us.
