Enjoy fellow data junkies!

GM must be doing well with the Vette, not many 1LT's sold - everyone is opting for higher, more profitable trims! Unless GM prioritized the higher trim levels due to 2020 production being halved.

The one I seem to like a lot was at the bottom, oh well. Zeus Bronze. It only makes sense though that Torch Red would be at the top.

You'd love my wife's Jeep Grand Cherokee, she got the 70th anniversary package (2011) that had a couple of paint colors only for the 70th anniversary edition. Most people got the silver, she opted for the very rare bronze - looks really nice!

I’m surprised there was so many black versions. The Red, orange, blue and yellow really does the C8 justice.

Probably a lot of people like me, I like other colors, but when the salesman asks me "what color" only "black" comes out of my mouth. :D

The only thing I find surprising about black is that there were more whites sold.

Black is a classic color for sports cars, esp. the 'Vette. I would have expected it to be #2. Sure, it's notoriously hard to maintain with all of the spider webbing issues etc. as the car ages but, when it's new, black is uniquely beautiful and classy, IMO.

I always thought black looked boring on a sports car.

Black looks good on large, formal and expensive vehicles. Nothing else.

I also think the trend for the “stealth” or black-out packages on vehicles makes them look cheap and low-end.

No flaming - just my opinion.

Black also looks good on the Gov't vehicles ;) like the Presidential motorcade. Edit: I was thinking the same thing about the current wheel trend. Saw one that way today from a ways off and then a car with no hubcaps too, couldn't tell much difference between the nice one with the blacked out expensive wheels and the beater with no hubcaps lol :D

Different opinions are good. Otherwise all cars would be the same color :)

943 went to "museum delivery" (toward the bottom of the pdf, in with the sales volume data). Seems like a lot to go into museums. Anyone know exactly what types of sales the 943 encompass? Is it as simple as they all went to exactly what it sounds like?

The extra-cost museum delivery option enables the purchaser to order the vehicle from any dealer, but take delivery at the Corvette Museum. It includes a tour of the plant, a special plaque and certificate, a tour of the museum and several other perks - including display of the vehicle inside the museum in a special delivery area, where pictures can be taken. (The tours may be modified or not included during the pandemic). I believe the museum receives a portion of the option-cost.

Loving mine. Good to hear GM didnt raise the msrp for all those who got shifted to 2021 model year.

I think a few options like z51 got a 20% hike..i think the fe4 got a 5 or 10 percent lift. E60 went up 500? But overall the msrp on the vehicle is the same.

White 15.7%
Black 11.6%
Red 10.6%
