Dealers with guide numbers are putting orders in and it appears the first 1066 allocations are spoken for. Only 900 out of nearly 3100 dealers have guide numbers, which are the number of units a dealer may expect to get in the first several months of production. Per history about 1000 dealers will not meet the standards Chevy announced to be able to order a Corvette.

This is in the norm. Before bankruptcy about one-third of the 6000 Chevy dealers in existence then never delivered a Corvette to a retail customer and another third delivered less than three every three years.

My dealer told me yesterday that they will call me as soon as they have my VIN Number.....¿? At what point can the dealer have a VIN ? during production?

Corvette is the exception that proves the rule. Your VIN should be available to your dealer in that time from as you move from 3300 to 3400. For the rest of Chevrolet cars, the VIN arises with 3800: Vehicle Produced.

Another area where Corvette is the exception that proves the rule: when you reach 3400 you will have a tentative date of expected production not a tentative week of production.

Doing a Corvette retail order is still a roller coaster ride, it just as a little bit more certainty as one progresses through the event (status) changes.

I am thinking the early picks will go to 3300 around July 23 and 3400 within the next seven days, around July 30. These are guesses based on doing more retail ordering than I care to remember and watching for patterns in the process. I have no inside contact. If I did I would not be posting.

All the early picks are at 2000 but the server that info is on (a real time) shows info to the ordering dealer only, and the server all dealers access should be updated the first Wednesday in June. How real time is that server? I was sitting at my salesperson's desk once while she checked on the status, it was just before noon and she said the truck was leaving the staging lot even as we were speaking. It arrived at the dealer a few hours later.

I am thinking the first Wednesday in July will show either 2500 or 3000, but will not show a TPP or an ETA. Those will have to wait a few weeks.

I am new to the forum. I am number two sold at the second largest corvette dealer but the Chevrolet tracking site just states order entered? Am I at status 2000? Will that site ever provide status codes. Thanks for any help. RBKZFH
