White 2014 Corvette Stingray

The 2014 Corvette Stingray, one of the jewels in General Motors’ crown, is more than the iconic American sports car that it has been for years and years; it has become, at least at some level, an entry-level sports car.

Talking about this evolution, Chris Perry (Katy’s uncle and Steve’s brother), vice president of Chevrolet marketing, said, “The 2014 Corvette Stingray perfectly embodies Chevrolet’s mission to deliver more than expected for our customers. [The car] delivers a combination of performance, design and technology that very few manufacturers can match, and none can even come close for $52,000.”

However, being one of the least expensive cars in its class does not mean that just anyone can go out and buy a 2014 Corvette Stingray. No, General Motors is helping protect the Stingray’s cache of exclusivity by only allowing fewer than 30% of Chevrolet dealerships across the nation to sell it.
