Here you will find monthly and yearly Canadian, U.S. and Europe market sales figures for the Chevrolet Corvette. Almost everything that follows below in this section comes from the official press releases by GM (and other major trade publications) about the 2020 Mid-Engine Corvette. Just the same, it is important to understand that many elements developed during the evolution of the Corvette were based on the nearly endless input and feedback from the global Corvette community. While the C8 Corvette was going to be a complete departure from the cars that came before it, the evolution of Corvette’s engine program from the mid-1990’s on has given birth to some of the most powerful and durable small-block engines in the history of Chevrolet. As such, a lot of consideration was given to incorporating those “lessons learned” when selecting/developing the powerplant for the next-generation Corvette.
