A total of 26,216 Corvettes were built for the 2021 model year with Coupes making up 58% (15,112) versus the Convertibles 42% (11,104). This was the highest convertible take rate since 1969!
A majority of 2021 buyers selected the 2LT at their Equipment Package with 44.1% (11,565) with the 3LT a close second at 40.1% (10,720) while the base 1LT accounted for just 14.9% (3,931).
The Z51 Performance Package was very popular with 69.5% (18,223) of all Corvettes in 2021 having the option. The only other optional item that we saw higher than the Z51 was the NPP Performance Exhaust with a take rate of 87%. The NPP was included in the Z51 package but as many C7 Corvette buyers learned, that extra 5-hp and the soundtrack that accompanies it is worth the extra cost. The E60 Front Lift is also popular with 61.1% (16,026) Corvettes equipped with the axle-raising option.
We’ve already charted the most popular exterior/interior color combinations for 2021. Torch Red was the top color for the model year at 19.7% (5,171) followed by Arctic White at 14.3% (3,769) and Red Mist at 13.3% (3,476). On the back end, Zeus Bronze is the rarest at 1.9% (509) followed by Accelerate Yellow at 3.2% (890) and Shadow Gray at 4.2% (1,111).
Inside the 2021 Corvette, the GT2 seats were the most popular of the three offered with 60.1% (15,766) while the standard GT seats were included in 33.1% (8,680), and the Competition Seats were added to just 6.8% (1,770). The standard Black seatbelts were outfitted in 66% (17,326) of cars. Suede was a fairly low option with only 17.4% (4,573) of buyers opting for it, and nearly one out of five Corvettes 19.8% (5,178) have the interior Carbon Fiber trim.
Finally, 23,573 (89.9%) of all 2021 Corvettes were built for the customers in the United States, while 1,887 (7.2%) went to Canada, 361 (1.4%) were exported to Japan, 246 (0.9%) went to the Middle East, and 149 (0.6%) were sent to Mexico.
