The next-generation Corvette Stingray created quite the buzz in the past week, so it’s no surprise that it remains on the front page of all magazines. For those of you who are eager to buy the new sports car, we have two pieces of news: one good and one bad. Let’s start with the good one… The new Stingray will be in showrooms by late summer, rejoice! Now the bad news; it will only be available through top Chevrolet dealers.
Translated, this means that if your local dealer failed to sell at least four Corvette last year, it won’t get the 2014 Corvette . The requirements might look quite minimal, but there are lots of dealers that failed to sell the required four required units.
One of these dealers is a small Chevrolet dealer in Brigham City, Utah which made the announcement: "I don’t anticipate getting the new Corvette this year, and many smaller dealers like me won’t get it either."
Of course, being a Chevrolet dealer and not being able to sell the new Corvette can be quite a bummer, but on the other hand, we understand that this is a measure Chevrolet took to protect its interest.
