Z51, Manuals, Magnetic Ride Control Popular On Early 2014 Corvette Stingray Orders

Follow Nelson

The 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray is probably etched into your retinas with the frequency of its appearance on your computer monitor, smartphone, and tablet of late. But there's a very good reason for that.

It's a very good sports car.

It's also quite popular with enthusiasts, it seems, with about 75 percent of early adopters ordering the Z51 package, and of those, about half also getting the Magnetic Ride Control suspension. Of course, the rev-matching 7-speed manual transmission is very strong in the mix right now, too.

Unfortunately, that doesn't easily translate that into an exact number. Chevrolet itself doesn't have a rolling total of all orders and deposits, because they're handled through the dealers themselves; Chevy only finds out when the order is officially placed with them. Chevy also declined to share expected production or demand for the first model year, citing competitive reasons.

A strong mix of enthusiast-spec options is to be expected, of course, says Corvette communications' Monte Doran. As the Stingray matures, it is expected the mix of base models and automatic transmissions will rise, just as happened with the C6 Corvette.

The takeaway here is for the lightly used sports car enthusiast: there might be some killer deals in the fall of 2015.
