5 months and 1 day after placing order, I have moved on the Chevy Order Tracker to "Queued for Production".

When I ordered I was told 6 to 8 month wait before getting car. Dealer remained adamant that I would be getting a 2014 although I had serious doubts as I did not move from #2 on his priority list for the past 2 months. Somehow he received 2 Z51 coupe allocations on the last consensus and my carbon fiber dash even made it through. I should even be price protected.

Dealer was true to his word although I was warned by many that I would never see the car.

Still haven't got TPW; I guess I still have a chance to be the final 2014 produced. ;)

Congratulations!!! You should have your TPW real soon.

I think it was about a week before the Chevy Customer Support had it after I went 2000 (although the dealer knew from the regional rep, so I knew as soon as the got the promise when the allocation was going to be picked up, about three weeks prior to 2000). It ended up being right on (this week.). (Fresh off the Buyers Tour - actually sitting in BNA for the flight home right now) their current average is about 18 cars per hour. Yesterday was not a good day and they lost about 18 cars from their goal, but this morning was humming along quite well. Probably was just where I was situated in line, but nearly all the cars around me were Z51s. That Buyers Tour is really a lot of fun if you're so inclined.

Very close, e.g. 6:12 AM till 2:42 PM is regular shift, though they are on overtime, working later in the day now (and have been for months and months), plus some Saturdays.

Having just been down there for the Buyers Tour. Tuesday afternoon the lines stopped at 4:30 p.m. and Wednesday morning the lines started 6:12 am-ish (typically their may be local 'group meetings' at the very beginning so the lines started a bit after 6 a.m. start.) On average 18 cars are born every hour and ~ 3 minutes per human station on the three separate lines (trim, chassis and final.) They have been running the '10 hour shifts' for a bit now apparently. Was a lot of fun leaving/coming into work with all of the workers and a great time visiting them along the way watching my new baby being built.

A bit of trivia I picked up on the delivery tour, the line starts at 6:12 for 3 reasons.

1. It takes 12 minutes for all the systems to come online.
2. Per union rules, workers starting before 6:00 AM are required to be paid shift differential.
3. Represented workers start the line.

So, since the machinists who start the line can't start until 6:00 and it takes 12 minutes for the line to get up to speed the line workers start at 6:12.
