    Filed under: Car Buying, Convertible, Coupe, Performance, Chevrolet

    Looking to make the launch of the 2014 Corvette Stingray as efficient as possible, Chevrolet will be limiting the numbers of its dealers that can sell the all-new coupe and convertible. According to Automotive News, sales of the C7 Corvette will initially be limited to less than a third of Chevy's total dealership network when the 'Vette goes on sale this summer.

    Only 900 dealers out of more than 3,000 locations nationwide will be allowed to sell the new Corvette at first, and the reason for this is so that there are no shortages at dealers that can actually get the cars sold. The article says that the 900 dealerships chosen represented 80 percent of total Corvette sales in 2012.

    Some of the requirements dealers had to make to get initial allocation of Stingray sales include having sold at least four Corvettes in 2012 and having a Corvette Stingray specialist who will be required to have gone through a training session costing more than $2,000 per attendee. Once demand for the 2014 Corvette Stingray begins to subside - approximately six to nine months after it goes on sale - then allocation could open up to more dealers, but the report indicates this could happen following the 2014 model year.Fewer than 1 in 3 Chevy dealers earn right to initially sell C7 Corvette originally appeared on Autoblog on Mon, 01 Apr 2013 17:31:00 EST.

    ^ Wow thats really something isnt it?! Im sure Ca. will have its share,there are alot of Corvettes around here and the buyers that have the cash for it too. I for one like the new Stingray especially the one you have pictured some people that wrote into Car and Driver and Road & Track were kinda iffy on it ( some didnt like the rear end & taillights,said it looked recycled from the Camaro?) but i read all the extra improvements that theyve made to it and other then the Hp level ( which i think should be way higher) theres alot of technology added to this model. So anyway I like it!! Cant afford it LOL...but Like It! Nice write up Ed.
