My carbon fiber dash was allocated ordered paid for and omitted. I am driving to BG next Tues to have it installed. Here's my Q: in the GM advertising photos it looks great. Is that in fact what it looks like? Someone commented that the CFD has a dull finish. Thanks.

A copy of my email about my displeasure with the tracking website. I will say that they did respond within 24 hrs. I'm so psyched !!!!!!!



Thank you for contacting Chevrolet regarding your 2014 Corvette Stingray order. We appreciate you giving us the opportunity to assist you.

First off, we would like to thank you for being a loyal Chevrolet customer. Your current and future business means a lot to us. We realized the Chevrolet Tracker on our website was not providing the best information. We have temporarily shut the system down for tracking Corvette Stingray orders. At this time, we have not established a date or time when this tracking system will be available again to consumers.

As of November 21, 2013, the event status code for order number RHFBD0 is 3000 - Accepted by Production Control. Please keep in mind that event codes do not always change in sequence and may not reflect the most accurate status of your order. At this time, the Target Production Week (TPW) is not available, and a Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) has not been assigned. We appreciate your patience and recognize the high amount of anticipation for the 2014 Corvette Stingray.

Thank you for contacting Chevrolet!

Sincerely,

The Chevrolet Marketing Team

I'm interested in the status of this order.
I'm very disappointed in the chevy order tracking website. I think for the amount of media exposure the corvette c7 has received and the value to the heritage of this car that the tracking would be better. If this is truly Chevrolet's "halo" car I would expect more. If chevy wants to be a world brand and compete directly with porsche as they suggest then this is part of the overall buyer experience. Please fix the website so that we hardcore fanatics and ACTUAL buyers can see the progress

I went to 3000 status a week ago

Z51, CF exposed roof, CF dash, NPP, MRC, 2LT.

My dealer tells me that since I'm at 3000 the constraints shouldn't impact me any longer and he was very happy (and a little surprised) that my order went to 3000 with the CF options. I'm happy too

So that's about 36 days total. I've been sitting at 3000 for over three weeks (probably closer to four). I don't think my timeline will be anywhere close to what Glen's was....

Z51 Coupe, 2LT, NPP, black wheels. I actually put the deposit down in April/May. My allocation came up in september, but couldn't get Z51 due to constraints. So I elected to wait. Ended up being a month (mid October) before the dealer could put in for a Z51. However, by then the dealer said the regular roof was on constraint so I had to order exposed carbon. I didn't want to pay the premium for the exposed carbon roof, but also didn't want to wait any longer. Order went to 3000 a week or two after they put it in to fill the allocation.

I have been at 3000 since October 30 and was told by GM Customer Svc my order was being held up due to CFR. Does anyone have any information regarding the CFR.

Awsome

I kept on reading how some cars were stuck in Quality Control for weeks. Built and out the door in 2 days. I'm liking that.

Now, I hope I get it in time for Christmas. Its a gift for my wife

4200 Shipped means the unit has been released to the transporter who has ten days to get it on a hauler and on the way to its destination. It takes dispatch about two days to find a hauler so there is normally a minimum of two days from 4200 to actually leaving Bowling Green. Corvettes do not go on trains, so once a unit leaves BG one can calculate how long to dealer, given the driver is limited to 600 miles a day, most dealers will not take Corvette deliveries on weekends and it looks like it takes about an hour to drop a unit and head toward the next dealer.

The hauler wants to have each truck leave with a full load but Chevy does not want deliveries held up waiting for that tenth or eleventh unit that would make a full load, this the reason for the ten day rule.

Exposed CFR will likely remain a problem. CF parts are hand made and each part is time consuming. Exposed parts need to come out of the mold perfect in appearance as only a clear coat covers them, no color coat to hide an appearance defect.
