"Attached for your reference is an updated 2014 Corvette Stingray Salesperson Reference Guide with further information on the convertible model. GMLaunch.com has also been updated with a set of Frequently Asked Questions and Answers.
On Monday, March 18, 2013, those dealers we anticipate will earn 2014 Corvette Stingray initial allocation will receive a letter outlining the applicable training and special tool requirements. These dealers will also be able to review the estimated production guide number for the initial production period of the 2014 Corvette Stingray coupe and convertible. Please remember when you review the estimated production guide number; the number is based on Chevroletís estimated production schedule, which remains subject to change. Many factors will affect the actual production quantities, including but not limited to product and part constraints, government requirements and evolving marketplace conditions. Therefore, this estimate is not a volume commitment. Chevrolet reserves the right to change the Corvette Stingray distribution plan or the timing for implementation of that plan from time to time at its sole business discretion.
Dealers who do not earn a 2014 Corvette Stingray during the initial allocation period will have the opportunity to agree to the training and special tools requirements approximately six to nine months from now depending on production startup. These dealers will see an estimated guide number at that time, and will be able to submit orders only after agreeing to the applicable special tools and training requirements. Further information will be shared with these dealers sometime after start of regular production of the 2014 Corvette Stingray coupe model.
Production of the 2014 Corvette Stingray coupe is scheduled to start late summer and units should begin to arrive in dealerships in early fall 2013. We are all excited to see the new roads our customers will find with the all-new Corvette Stingray."
Dealers who are getting Stingrays now know how many they are getting. My good friend at a dealership in Texas is getting over 50 coupes. 50! And he doesn't sell over MSRP.
Have your dealer PROVE to you they can order. Ask to see their estimated guide number from Chevrolet. Many are just talking the talk, just as they did with the Camaro. Some will add mandatory add ons, such as paint protection, glass etching, etc..... others will wait until your car arrives and tell you unless you pay added markup, you no longer can have your car because of "market pricing". Yes, all these horrors happened with the Camaro.
Work with a dealer you can trust.....and ask to talk to one of their first Camaro deliveries as a reference
Where is the order sheets?

I realize not all chevy dealers will sell the 2014 vette, but the ones that will. Do they know now? And do they know their allocations? Thanks!!
I received a call from my dealer on Saturday (4/27) - said they had been allocated 3 coupes and 2 verts - took my deposit for one of the coupes - a quote from the dealer, in writing, "We have a 9 month production window starting in mid to late June. Chevrolet has not given us a build schedule other than our allocation will be built within the 9 month time frame. As discussed, the car will be sold at MSRP, plus all taxes, tag fees, and a 699.50 dealer fee".
