New C7 Corvette Inventory Dropping Fast
According to Chevrolet, there are fewer than 2,600 New C7s on dealer lots, down from over 5,000 a month ago.
We here at Corvette Mike have been hearing our customers talking about the number of brand new C7’s on dealer lots and how it is impacting the value of their cars. Well, we have heard from Chevrolet and the number of new cars out there for sale has halved to less than 2,600. This reduction is great news for the used C7 Corvette market and comes just as the new C8 is being produced.

Featured Car of the Week
1990 Turquoise Metallic & Black interior with 32k Miles!
What Mike likes about this Corvette:
“The 1990 Corvette had a newly re-designed cockpit with a wraparound driver compartment, which included an instrument cluster, which was also re-designed, and gave the driver his/her own special feeling of exclusivity and fighter pilot like adrenaline.
The turquoise metallic was very special indeed and the color lent itself to the C4 body style especially in 1990 where the beltline was accented with a black body molding.
This pristine example was ordered and sold new to a very special client who just completed a frame off restoration on his 1955 Corvette in the restoration shop here at Corvette Mike and this was a gift to himself for achieving the Bloomington Gold Award in 1990. It would be very difficult to find a finer example so don’t let this one slip away as rare as the color is it’s even more rare to find a one-owner C4 convertible with such low miles.”
