Every year, over $750 million in Corvettes are sold to happy customers every year. While that may seem like a mountain of rear-wheel-drive Chevys, it’s actually just a fraction of the overall income generated by the name itself. A report by Edmunds estimates that an astounding $2.5 billion is generated by the Corvette nameplate every year. To put it into perspective, this number is slightly higher than the GDP of Greenland. (Yes, that’s true.)
Edmunds admits that there has been some educated guessing done, and doesn’t exclude the exchanging of classic ‘Vettes.
We’re sure that with the awesome numbers (and looks) of the C7, that this $2.5 billion number will increase significantly, especially with the Corvette being fit for the world market.
