Sales of the C8 Corvette in the US market reached a total of 9,125 cars in Q2 2023. This was an increase of about 6 percent compared to 8,630 units sold in Q2 2022. For comparison, Porsche sold 3,140 911’s and 1,152 718’s (Cayman/Boxster) taking the 2nd and 3rd spots respectively. 4th and 5th place was held by Mercedes-Benz AMG SL-Class 1,083 cars sold and the AMG GT with 711 cars sold.

Those five models from the three marques represented the majority of sales in the premium sports car segment since the remaining half of the field accounted for less than 800 cars sold combined.

The C8 was also exported to Canada (721 cars sold in Q2 2023), Mexico (18 cars sold), and Brazil (20 cars sold).

As evidenced by the data, the Corvette continues to impress.

1970 LS5 454/390 Convertible
An amazing, original, 19k mile time machine!

1970 red corvette ls5 convertible

Monza Red w/Black interior, 454/390hp, 4-speed manual transmission.
Includes the original Tank Sticker.

This Monza Red Convertible is a truly special car. Somehow, it managed to survive 53 years in pristine, original condition, having only been driven 19k miles since it rolled out of St. Louis! One of the previous owners is a very good client of ours and a renown collector. He was the car’s caretaker for 35 years and Corvette Mike maintained it for him! The paint is very shiny, the interior shows little wear, the soft top still looks great, and it runs just like a 19k mile Corvette should, excellent! Options include the #’s matching LS5 engine, mated to an M21 close ratio 4-speed manual transmission, am/fm radio, power brakes, power steering, power windows and luggage rack. She’s just waiting for the next caretaker to drive her home!

Completely restored L76!

1965 goodwood yellow corvette

Goldwood Yellow w/Black interior, L76 327/365hp, 4-speed

The example presented here is special in so many ways! Where to begin? Corvette Mike sold the car to its previous owner (a close friend of his) over 30 years ago. And it has remained in Southern CA. ever since. During his ownership, the car was frame-up restored and it has been beautifully maintained over the decades. It still looks fantastic, and it runs and drives just as good as it looks! But what makes this ’65 truly special is the amazing documentation! Not only does it have extensive restoration photos and receipts, but it also has documentation back to new! Including the Protect-O-Plate with service receipts all the way back to ’65! It’s a journey through time with this awesome ’65.

Some random thoughts

A nickel ain’t worth a dime anymore.

I want my children to have all the things I couldn’t afford. Then I want to move in with them.

My uncle Sammy was an angry man. He had printed on his tombstone: What are you looking at.
