It was bound to happen. We don’t care how good the Corvette ZR1 is, people are just not going to buy a Vette that costs over $100,000, especially in this economy. Due to the lack of sales, there is a growing inventory of ZR1 Corvettes.

Since January, the number of ZR1s available has grown from 175 units to 500. Those numbers have helped GM decide to give the ZR1 a little help in the sales department.

The Detroit automaker is offering its first rebates for the superchargedCorvette, in the hope to increase sales. The rebates will run through September 7 and will allow buyers to get a $3,000 rebate, or 0% APR for up to 60 months. If you buy the 2009 version, you can get $5,000 back.

On top of all that money, you can also get the $1,000 Toyota Conquest rebate, which we find to be hilarious. So, if you purchase a ZR1 you could be saving $4,000 or $6,000, depending on the year.

If you’re interested in any ZR1 contact your Chevrolet dealer.

You have the love for the Corvette and money is not your problem well, I guess there’s no point to consider if the country is in the recession. Just look at Jay Leno’s garage!

Automakers have generally tried to shy away from using hefty rebates as a sales tool, but that hasn’t stopped General Motors from offering zero percent financing or up to $5,000 in incentives on its high-performance Chevrolet Corvette ZR1.

The price point is the Achilles heal on this car.

There’s a novel idea incentive your halo car...you halo super car.

I don’t really see why they’d be angry. Part of what they were paying for was being among the first to have one. They clearly weren’t bargain shopping—that is, unless they decided to get the ZR1 instead of a Ferrari, Lamborghini, or Porsche of roughly comparable performance.

I know it isn’t as easy as it sounds but why not have a production schedule according to demand?

It’s actually kind of sad how utterly stupid GM is.
