2019 Corvette Grand Sport
The last time Corvette production was that low was 9,670 in 1959. This isn't that unusual for GM / Corvette; For various production and model year changes the numbers are not consistent such that you really cannot derive conclusions regarding model year popularity - success based on annual numbers.
Corvette upgrades had been fairly regular since the C7 introduction in the 2014 model year. The Z06 arrived in 2015, the Grand Sport appeared in 2017 and the ZR1 in 2019 which was first available in March 2018.
During this time the standard Corvette Stingray saw minimal changes. The most significant was the 8L90 eight-speed automatic transmission and the Performance Data Recorder (PDR), both introduced in 2015. Other changes involved available colors and special editions. It is not possible to determine the year of a C7 Corvette by looking at trim and other exterior details.
The targa, even with the roof off, feels a lot more like a coupe than a convertible. There is still that bulk behind you and over your shoulder. But it is hard to argue with the coupes advantages: It is more aerodynamic, safer, and costs $4,000 less.
