The dealer I purchased from has the highest allocation in south texas. I'd be lying if I said how many but I do know it's like 80-90+. Anyways, I am on the "second run"... my allocation spot is 33. What does this mean for me in regards to build date... when does the "second run" typically start? And since my dealership is apparently a VIP/Priority dealer, will my allocation still be ahead of smaller non-priority dealerships?

Thanks
Chuck

The current consensus is for a projected August production and likely all picks will come off the line in August. The second Corvette consensus will be late July and will fill out August production (if the line is going good). Shortly after that Corvette will be included in the twice monthly consensus. I would guess at 33 you would be included in the second consensus only if several ahead of you drop out or more likely take a pass because something they want is on constraint. For the C6 the wheel option (polished or chromed, I do not recall which) was on constraint for several consensus points and that option was important enough that many who wanted it waited. I suspect the same will happen (wheels) this time. I also suspect the Z51 option will quickly be on limited constraint because of the brakes that are part of the package.

Laborsmith,

Thanks for all the great info! First consensus is the priority 1's of the dealerships? Or the first round that gets picked up? Just looking for more detail. I would assume the Priority 1 submissions that have no constraints would be picked up quickly. What about museum orders, would that affect an order at all?

Do you think they will pick up next week, since it will be the last week of May?

Thanks

All retail sold orders are priority 1. Dealers can number then, say 1 then 2 then 3, but that is meaningless. When in consensus, Chevrolet will pull a dealers retail sold orders before pulling stock orders but the dealer will pick which retail sold order is submitted to match allocation. Normally this is not in question, and you may not believe me but before bankruptcy there were dealers who had never submitted a retail sold order and I daresay many of them are still in business. An intelligent dealer will match allocation against order received (dealers are not dumb tho sometimes you may wonder) so if you are #1 on your dealers lists then you most likely be the firsrt matched against allocation. Most likely because sometimes dealers are dumb but 99% of the time things will happen as predicted.

The next Corvette consensus should be the last consensus in July. Apparently only a thousand were picked in the first Corvette (which started Thursday when dealers were told what they could order and will end Tuesday when dealers actually order) consensus, about half what I expected, but I see no reason for there to be a June consensus, because a late July consensus would easily fill the last two weeks of August production.

Museum orders should not affect pick up timing and I am not aware that any order was picked before another because it was a museum delivery.

Thanks

c7 deposit made

I went to a dealer May 1oth that has an allocation of 66. I gave them a down payment on a convertible. They already had 15 coupes on order. My order for the convertible would not go in. They will put it in as soon as they can. It would be the 1st convertible they will order. Maybe in 6 months I may have it.

Someone will correct me if I am wrong, but I am thinking convertible ordering was bumped from November to December.

I clearly spend to much time wandering around on the world wide web.
