    2017 Constraint Updates!

    Negative surprise, no 1st 2017 Corvette consensus today. We were expecting initial 2017 orders to start to be accepted today in the first consensus, but no allocation today. Thank you Mike@Criswell for sharing this information.

    Also interesting is that both Watkins Glen Gray Metallic (G7Q) and Sterling Blue Metallic (GGB), even if there had been allocations, still have an internal note: "Start Up Restriction," though that could disappear and these colors accepted next Thursday if that becomes the first consensus.

    Many of us felt that starting 2017 assembly on June 24th might have been like a placeholder, as the following day and through July 10th, the Plant is closed for two week summer shutdown. Looking more like the first day of 2017 production might become July 11th, but that is not yet confirmed.

    Thanks again Mike for sharing this important information for those wanting to order their 2017's.

    I ordered 2017 3LT vert yesterday. However, I wanted Sterling Blue with twilight blue interior option but order would not accept this option with Sterling Blue exterior colour. So selected white. Is it a possibility due to your comments that I may still get my original colour combination and change prior to going to 3000?

    A call to Detroit yesterday confirmed what I earlier posted, that as of yet the 2017 Corvette order banks are still not officially open. In fact yesterday's call also resulted in the statement that the start of 2017 orders will not again be open today but next Thursday.*. Thanks Mike Furman @ Criswell for finding that out for us.

    Here is the only proof I would personally accept if I had an order in for a 2017 Corvette. It is a print out from GM GlobalConnect.

    Critical to note that one does not always read the bottom line, but reads the "effective date" column for the latest date and then having found that, then finds the order status for that order. In the above example, note that on 9/22/2014, that order was status 2000, accepted by GM.


    * Notes:

    1) GM always reserves until itself the ability to change decisions, plans and actions and the above info was accurate as of yesterday's phone call, and like every other GM schedule, is subject to change.

    2) The above GlobalConnect form was for my own 2015 order.

    To best answer your question, I posted the above example of how an order can change PRIOR to it being GM accepted. Note that on 9/16 it indicated that change. I would have your dealer print out the same form, and have him/change your order to what you really want, for based on my latest information, no 2017 orders have yet to be formally GM accepted, e.g. become the critical status 2000.

    If anyone has contrary 2017 Corvette order information based on the GlobalConnect form, showing 2000 or 3000 status for your car, please post your Global Connect form below.

    No allocation/no consensus today, June 2nd. Information provided by Mike Furman@Criswell Corvette. Mike also shared that when things open up, the first TPW's will be the week of July 11th, with first 2017's arriving at dealers in early August. Why, that amount of time between initial production and first deliveries? There will be the same two week quality hold for the first produced 2017's -- as has been done every previous year.


    Thank you Mike!

    I was just notified my 2017 Grand Sport order moved to 3000 today with a build week of July 11. Museum delivery will be (probably) first week of August.

    My dealer had order for 2017 vert and showed me GlobalConnect showing 2000. He changed the order to the colour and options I wanted. Status now at 2050. Don't know why Sterling Blue was not accepted with Twilight Blue option. Dealer says it may have something to do with only 5% of orders will be built with Sterling Blue. Anyone have an answer?

    June 16th Corvette constraint information, thanks to Mike Furman@CriswellChevrolet!

    Three things are notable:

    1) There are very, very few orders being accepted this consensus nationwide. In fact, this is probably the slowest allocation roll out of any Corvette in recent history. Why? No one outside of GM knows.
    2) No longer any constraints on Watkins Glen Gray Metallic.
    3) All else is identical to those constraints Mike provided last week as contained in post # 9 above.

    Why do think there is a constraint on the 7 speed? Makes me sad to wait for my GS because I want a manual
