    C7 Corvette Stingray Production Delay

    I read over on another site that there has been a production delay. Have you guys heard anything? Any credence to this potentially upsetting news?

    Nick,

    I searched a bit over the internet and didn't find anything concrete, just speculation. I only see two reasons for potential delays:

    1) Still too many C6's out there.

    2) Production problem (one or more component giving issues or a bad batch of parts). It is better (and also the right thing to do) to delay production in this situation.

    If there are too any C6's out there sitting at the dealerships, we will likely see a 0% 72 months financing on all C6's along with another pricing promotion. Last time I checked it was at 1.9% 60 months. So, I wouldn't stress out either way. They will give us our machines soon (I hope). I can't certainly wait until 2014 as some people were saying.

    I hope that they are just trying to make sure that everything is perfect. Too many C6's at dealerships would be a huge bummer because I don't care what the purchase incentive is, I cannot imagine many people walking into the dealership and saying they want the car that is going to be dated as it rolls off the lot.

    I agree with you. If they are not at 72 months no interest at this point, we are good. If ANYTHING it would likely be a bug. Lots of people (trolls) like to start that kind of rumor. I wouldn't be too concerned.

    I spoke with my dealer here in Az and he knew nothing of any delays, but also didn't know when production eas "scheduled" to start.

    Haven't heard anything myself, I'll check in with a couple of dealers I know and see if they have heard anything.

    At this point, I'll be happy just to know production has started and the Stingrays are rolling off the production line! My C7 is out there somewhere albeit in bits and pieces!

    Torch Red
    Kalahari Interior
    2LT
    Z51
    Black Alum Wheels
    6 speed paddle shift
    Carbon Fiber Roof
    Dual Mode Exhaust

    This isn't too much to ask for!

    I am there with you... I am sure whatever it is, we will not find out and the dealers will not find out either; we can speculate and that's it. The only way would be someone at GM directly involved in this project leaking information, which is highly unlikely to happen. Sometimes some bugs affect only certain serial numbers and sometimes just a few machines. So, if something may be potentially wrong but it is not deemed dangerous, they would likely release them and rework cars as needed when the complaints are filed. Maybe they already started and we don't even know it (I hope) haha.

    Don't bother checking with the dealerships, they have no idea. That's directly from my Corvette Manager at the largest dealer in the country. They're slated for 507 Vettes within the first 6 to 9 months of production. The reason GM told them 6 to 9 was to give them time to work out all the kinks on the brand new assembly line, and give themselves a 3 month window. It has nothing to do with how many C6's are out there, although they will be & are offering some tasty incentives.

    That makes no sense and is completely contrary to what Dave Salvatore posted on another forum. I bought two Corvetes from Dave and he is totally honest. He is the Corvette Manager at Kerbeck -- who for about fifteen years sold more Corvettes (before this year) than every other Corvette dealer in the country. Dave posted yesterday, yes July 4th, that major dealerships just got specific news on the next order batch. He posted that he was going to contact the next 100+ folks in the next week and half and get them to finalize their order so he could immediately place them in to GM. Your dealer is a huge/major dealer and too got the same news. Suggest you call your dealer back again and if you don't get the correct info, that their next batch will be able to be actually ordered by the end of next week, and that you are in it, you are not being given the full/accurate scoop.

    I can second the opinion on Dave Salvatore. I am buying my FIRST corvette - I just sent in my deposit to Kerbeck this morning to secure my coupe! He is going to submit my order like elegant stated above and combine it with all other orders and then submit it to GM's Factory Build App. Below is the configuration I selected: Artic White/Z51 Mag. Ride, Red Calipers, etc. I can hardly wait! Soon as it is submitted you can then track it through GM's order tracking system online. There are various codes that allow you to understand then where your car is at in the production sequence.
