Chevrolet appears to be taking some notes from SRT's playbook on how to sell the Corvette Stingray. According to Automotive News, General Motors told Chevrolet dealers that if they had sold four or more Corvettes in 2012, they would be able to sell the Stingray. This move will effect hundreds of Chevrolet dealers.
"I don't anticipate getting the new Corvette this year, and many smaller dealers like me won't get it either," says Byron Hansen, a Chevrolet dealer in Brigham City, Utah.
Dealers who did not hit the sales mark last year are very disappointed, since they used the Corvette as a way to bring people in.
"Being a Chevy dealer and not being able to sell Corvette -- that makes me sad," says Jim Stutzman, owner of Jim Stutzman Chevrolet-Cadillac in Winchester, Va.
