Exclamation Carbon Fiber Roofs Constrained on 2014 Corvette Stingray Orders



Quote:
As production of the new C7 continues to ramp up, GM has announced a another round of option constraints for the 2014 Corvette Stingray. The constraints tell dealers which options are not currently available for the listed Target Production Weeks.

The new round of constraints cover the Target Production Week (TPW) of 9/30/2013-10/6/2013. The options are:

01483 AE4-SEATS, COMPETITION SPORT, BUCKET, National Qty Available = 0
01485 C2Z-ROOF PANEL, REMOVABLE CARBON FIBER, National Qty Available = 0
01486 CSM-ROOF PACKAGE, CARBON FIBER, DUAL, National Qty Available = 0

We knew about the Competition Sport seats which Chevy has been telling us that they won’t be available until later this year. But the delay in the exposed Carbon Fiber Roofs (C2Z) which also causes a delay in the Dual Roof Package (C2M) when the Carbon Fiber roof is selected is sure to cause some buyers to rethink their orders.

If you ordered the painted roof (C2Q), transparent roof (CC3) or the body color dual roof package (C2Q) you’re good and in fact you might see your order move faster as those who wanted the Carbon Fiber roofs will be forced to wait until supply picks back up.

We’ll continue to watch these and will pass along any information that shows either the constraint was removed or that it carries over into other Target Production Weeks.

My Dealer informed me that's why I'm stuck at 3000

I'm afraid too, that will put me even longer wait I'm currently at 3000, if it would speed up my time I would consider changing to a standard top and adding the Full Length Dual Racing Stripe Package, Carbon Flash that now available, I ordered Silver so I think it looks pretty nice

If you at 3000 the constraint does not effect your order. I would second guess your dealers false info. On CF others have clarified that any status 2000 or above are not effected by this constraint.

I was at 3000 and moved to 3300 on Friday with the exposed carbon fiber roof. Many others have too.

Just check up on it not sure the dealer has the right info.

But the timing of when the order will be built can be affected. I have had orders stall at 3000 while similar but not exactly optioned orders went forward. 3000 means Chevrolet expects all the parts for the order will arrive in a timely and usable manner and does not signify all the parts are at the plant.

Dealer is correct, per GM Rep there is an unexpected delay in CF tops and some have not met QA requirements witch has slowed that option in production, in return newer orders without this option are moving quicker in line to fill the gaps. As they receive the CF tops the orders will be fulfilled in the original order. So I guess just depends on where I'm in the pecking order as to when my C7 will be built, getting to be the norm.

I experienced the same constraints with the Exposed Carbon Hood on our ZL1. The weave has to be perfect or it will not pass Quality Control. I had to wait for the third consensus before all of the constraints had cleared. The only good thing that came out of waiting was GM absorbed the cost of the ECF hood because of all the problems they had with the all the hoods.

We notice these problems because we are following Corvettes, not Malibus, but rest assured this is a normal part of any start up. This is why I have vowed to never do a retail order again, and I doubt I have broken that vow above a half a dozen times.

It is a delay but unless your order would have resulted in getting VIN 0001 it is a delay you will be happy to overlook once you have the steering wheel in one hand and the shifter in the other. At least you can identify the reason; more often than not the reason for delay is a guess and Chevy does not help by its refusal to identify what holds up production. I would say "trust me" but I am not sure that would calm your spirits.

And do not forget: you will be getting want you want not what the dealer's inventory manager has decided you want.

So true, I’m really ok with the wait, I knew it was going to be long, ordered early July been at 3000 since July 17th was hoping for mid-September ship now hoping for mid-October, defiantly would rather wait for a product that’s right. It’s like a long time ago when I was just a wee little one wait for Christmas morning to open that special gift you know you we’re getting

I have exposed CF roof and moved from 3000 to 3300 yesterday (9/11). Hope that means something.

Welcome to the 3300 dark hole. This is where the anger will begin guys. I have been riding this boat at 3300 long enough. Hope things change soon but word is its going to be a long road from here.

Exactly why I vow to never do a retail order again.

And I assure you I am sticking to this vow this time.

No reason to doubt me unless you think you must consider the half dozen times I have broken that vow.

As I stated earlier, I have exposed CF roof and moved from 3000 to 3300 on 9/11, hoping that meant something good. Well, it didn't. I went back to 3000 on Oct.1.

Does anybody know current status of exposed carbon fiber roof option?

I am with you brother. The silence from everyone is deafening. I was hoping for a quick build back in July when I went 3000.......now I just wish someone would tell me something. The wait is fine, but building the Premeir Edition and using a bunch of the CF tops for their own cars was not very customer service oriented.
I guess they just could not get anymore because they switched the PE's over to clear tops.

Sweet!!!!
I did too! I hope it means we will be built within the next week or two.
Man looking at all these threads of happy owners with their new Vettes is about to drive me crazy! While I am very happy to see everyone enjoying their new rides, it makes the wait for my own just that much harder.

Nice! VINs are getting close to breaching the #5000 mark real soon, if not already!
