Anyone hear about the carbon fiber dash (FAY) being on back order and anyone who has it on their order will get delayed?

Route 66

I am finally also 3000 as of 7-18 order # QZTFS8. I started out on waiting list to order in Feb.. About the carbon fiber dash I was told last week by my dealer GM does not have enough to supply all orders and I was told my car was in the group that will get one.

Finally 3300 now the wait for production dates. Thank You Becky for all the checkin.

3400 is what all are looking for and no one has achieved. 3300 usually has a TPW subject to change. I've had a TPW at 3000 and as I posted on one order I had a TPW that did not change though the car was produced over two weeks AFTER. But once there are some reported 3400s, then we will know production will start within a week or ten days.

I think if we look at the status level changes as an indication of progress and not as anything more, we will feel better. I suspect the plant is starting to look more organized and more ready to start regular production each day that passes. I still think production will start on August 5, but will not know if I am right until August 6.

If the Stingray did not have so many unique parts we could be more certain about when it would start being made. But if it did not, would it be a Corvette Stingray and would there be several hundred people laying down deposits for it?

I'm at 3300 now and still no TPW. I'm not sweating it too much, but to see some start rolling off the line would be encouraging. I hope you're right about the Aug 5 start date.

Who is THEY, my dealer says they have not been notified if or when they will receive a PE. My dealer has enough allocation to get one. I do not think the PE will be completly produced before customer orders are started.

So who is THEY.

Rounding out the cosmetic enhancements on the 2014 Stingray Premiere Edition are a "stinger" hood stripe plus "Stingray"-logo interior sill plates and wheel caps. Each one also will feature a unique identification number dash plaque.

Straight production of all 500 Premier Editions could happen but will not make a difference for when delivered for the first 1500 or so customers (that number includes the PEs). I do not think it will happen that way but once regular production starts someone will find out and when that happens we all will know.
