If you want an INVESTMENT - this car is it !! You cannot find this exact build any more in a 2018 Corvette. This is the last 2018 Z06 2LZ 650 HP Convertible EVER -- For the model year, Chevrolet built a total of 9,686 Corvettes. The shortened model year total is the lowest since 1959 which saw 9,670 Corvettes built. We guessed earlier that the number would be close to the 9,752 Corvettes built during the last short model year, 1997 with the introduction of the C5 Coupe and 2018 production nearly equaled that mark.The number one selling model was the Corvette Stingray Coupe which accounts for 31.7% of production, followed by the Grand Sport Coupe which saw 25.6% of production, and the Z06 Coupe which had 24.3% of 2017 Corvette production. Here are the numbers and percentages by model:ModelQuantityPercentage Stingray Coupe3,06831.7%Stingray Convertible7357.6%Grand Sport Coupe2,56926.5%Grand Sport Convertible5125.3%Z06 Coupe2,35324.3%Z06 Convertible4494.6% Totals:9,686100%The Corvette Stingray Coupe is the entry model and so we always like to look at the trim package penetration to get an idea about the buyer. For the Stingray Coupe, the top trim package is the 1LT, chosen by over half of buyers with 1,753 (57.1%) vs 782 for 2LT (25.4%), and 543 for 3LT (17.7%). That means that 18.1% of ALL Corvette sales are the base model coupes with the base trim package. I always think about that number as those who stretched their car-buying budgets to get to the mid-$50k where the base Stingray resides. That’s something to think about with the C8 mid-engine on the horizon.Grand Sport buyers opted for the 2LT over the 3LT and 1LT packages while most Z06s were outfitted with 3LZ trim packages followed closely by 2LZ and then 1LZ.Only 24% of Stingray Coupe/Convertible buyers opted for the Z51 performance package. For Grand Sport, 7.8% of Coupe/Convertible buyers opted for the Z07 Performance package while 7.9% went with the J57 Carbon Ceramic Brakes option.For Z06 buyers, 20.8% selected the Z07 Performance Package while another 2.2% selected the J57 carbon ceramic brakes (without Z07). As far as percentages go, the 2018 model year saw a huge drop off in Z07/J57 orders for Z06 which is why Chevrolet offered that awesome $5K rebate on the J57 option earlier in the year. In 2017, 32.5% of Z06 buyers selected the Z07 Performance Package while another 17.9% selected the J57 ceramic brakes.Across the board, the take-rate on the 8-speed automatic transmission was 78%. For Z06, 72.1% of buyers selected the 8-speed automatic.The top selling color once again across all models was Arctic White by a large margin with 20.3% of production followed by Black (16.3%) and Torch Red (14%). On the low side, just 85 Corvettes were painted in the new Sebring Orange tintcoat. Talk about rare! Only 11 Sebring Orange convertibles were built across the 2018 model lineup – two Stingray Convertibles, three Z06 Convertibles, and just six Grand Sport Convertibles wear the new color.ColorQuantityPercentage Arctic White1,96620.3%Black1,57516.3%Torch Red1,35514.0%Watkins Glen Gray1,11511.5%Ceramic Matrix Gray1,09911.3%Admiral Blue7037.3%Long Beach Red5996.2%Blade Silver5715.9%Corvette Racing Yellow3994.1%Black Rose2192.3%Sebring Orange850.9% Corvette 2LZ Standard Equipment Entertainment Antenna, integral, hidden Audio system feature, Bose advanced 10-speaker system with bass box Audio system, Chevrolet MyLink Radio with 8" diagonal color touch-screen, AM/FM/HD stereo with seek-and-scan and digital clock, includes Bluetooth streamingaudio for music and select phones; voice-activated technology for radio and phone; featuring Android Auto and Apple CarPlay capability for compatible phone (STD) OnStar 4G LTE and available built-in Wi-Fi hotspot offers a fast and reliable Internet connection for up to 7 devices; includes data trial for 3 months or 3GB (whichevercomes first) (Available Wi-Fi requires compatible mobile device, active OnStar service and data plan.
