Chevrolet’s latest Corvette has seen strong sales out of the gate, and now the brand is reacting by raising the base price by $2,000.
Originally the car carried a base price of $51,995 (including destination), but Chevrolet spokesman Otie McKinley has confirmed that the base price is set to jump up to $53,995. Customers interested in the performance boost granted from the Z51 package originally had to shell out an extra $2,800, but that price is increasing by $1,200 bringing the total for the package up to $4,000.

This means that customers will now have to drop $57,995 for a Corvette Stingray Coupe with the Z51 package. The same increase has been brought to the convertible as well, which will now cost $58,995 rather than the previous $56,995.
In the first two months of 2014, Chevy has moved 4,699 Corvettes, which is more than double the amount of Corvettes sold over the same time period in 2013. The price increases went into effect on Monday, March 3.
