Chevrolet Corvette sales fell about 12 percent in the first quarter of 2019, totaling 3,943 units compared to 4,457 deliveries in Q1 2018. The continued decline in deliveries is most directly attributed to anticipation of the upcoming mid-engine Corvette C8, with some C7 customers cancelling their orders. And now, in what is definitely a way to give current Corvette owners a bigger reason to get the Corvette C7, Chevrolet is offering $3,000 off any new 2019 Corvette model in May 2019. The discount was also offered during April.
Nationwide Corvette discounts and offers on 2018 and 2019 models for May 2019 are as follows:
- 2018 Corvette Stingray: 0 percent APR (interest-free) for 72 months when financing with GM Financial
- 2018 Corvette Stingray Z51: 0 percent APR (interest-free) for 72 months when financing with GM Financial
- 2018 Corvette Grand Sport: 0 percent APR (interest-free) for 72 months when financing with GM Financial
- 2018 Corvette Z06: 0 percent APR (interest-free) for 72 months when financing with GM Financial
- 2019 Corvette: $3,000 loyalty discount for current Corvette owners
Shoppers should note that the full $3,000 Corvette discount is only available to current Corvette owners. The incentive is rather significant, as this is one of the largest discounts ever offered for the nameplate.

When applied to a 2019 ZR1 model, the $3,000 Corvette discount lowers the starting price to $118,995, and that of the entry-level Stingray 1LT model to $53,995.
The $3,000 Corvette discount is a rare occurrence, as Chevrolet seldom offers actual cash on the sports car. It’s rather obvious that the purpose of the offer is to get current Corvette owners who are on the fence about buying a current C7 or waiting for the upcoming Corvette C8 to go for the C7. The all-new, mid-engine Corvette (aka the Corvette C8) launches later this year.

About Chevrolet Corvette
The Chevrolet Corvette is a lineup of sports cars sold globally. Slotting above the Chevrolet Camaro as Chevrolet's flagship sports car, the Corvette lineup consists of the "base" Corvette Stingray, mid-level Corvette Grand Sport, Corvette Z06 and range-topping Corvette ZR1.
The 2018 Corvette represents the fifth model year of the seventh-generation (or C7) Corvette. Despite its age, the vehicles remains highly competitive in its segment. For the 2019 model year, the Corvette discontinues the Carbon 65 Edition while gaining the 2019 Corvette ZR1 in Coupe and Convertible forms, along with two new colors - Elkart Lake Blue Metallic and Shadow Gray Metallic.
Chevrolet is working on a next-, eighth-generation Corvette. The model is expected to be mid-, rear-engined, allowing it to push the performance envelope even further that the C7. See more on the rumored mid-engine Corvette. Though it was previously believed that the C7 generation will be discontinued when the mid-engined model is introduced, we now have reason to believe that the model will continue being offered alongside the mid-engined model.
The Corvette is built exclusively at the GM Bowling Green plant in Bowling Green, Kentucky, USA.
