Chevy Exec Forecasts Global Growth for New Stingray

January 31, 2013

Exports accounted for only a few hundred of the more than 14,000 Corvettes Chevrolet sold in 2012. But, says John B. Fitzpatrick, marketing manager-performance cars, “We have much higher expectations for the 2014 Stingray.â€

He predicts a boost in Corvette exports to Europe, Asia (especially China) and the Middle East. Exports to Europe collapsed earlier when the distributor went bankrupt and left Chevrolet without a dealer network to handle its vehicles, including the Corvette.
