Thank you Mike [email protected] Chevrolet for again bringing us the weekly Corvette ordering constraints. In summary, there are only two, i.e., Watkins Glen Gray is orderable no more, and the ZR1 remains on its very slow (less than 200 per month) controlled production allocation — as it will all year.

Mike Furman can be reached, desk direct @: 301.212.4420. To get the best deals at Criswell, please only and directly talk with Mike Furman, especially as he is the only one there with 40 years Corvette ordering experience and thus he has detailed knowledge of Corvette specifications. He is therefore uniquely, by Criswell’s owner, authorized to give you the best pricing; and also consequently, he has the greatest knowledge to help you pick your way though the ten pages of ordering choice, to get you the exact options you want on your C7.

Here in the same format that GM sends its constraint info to its dealers, is what Mike provided us this morning.

Here’s a surprise, that not a single C7 Corvette order will move forward this week, e.g., no allocations for any model 2019 Corvette.

Thank you Mike [email protected] for again sharing this week’s constraint info.

This information is provided by Mike, who however shared that he believes there will be uplifting news next week. ZR1 allocations are typically allocated to dealers on the third Thursday of each month, so the next ZR1 openings will be next Thursday (21st). If next Thursday is typical, GM would match approximately 200 ZR1, currently 1100 status orders, with an expected 200 ZR1 allocations to those dealers’ orders who are next up then.

Thanks to Mike [email protected] Chevrolet, we have this week’s constraint updates. We see the first “peeking” of the brand new 2019 color, Shadow Gray Metallic.. While it is listed as fully constrained for today’s start of consensus, it is noted there is less than a four week start up constriction, meaning that roughly a month from now (or less), GM will approve production orders with that color.

This is behind GM’s annnunced original estimate at the BASH that it could be ordered on June 28th. At that time GM had announced an August 6th start of production. While the ordering acceptance is behind a little, August 6th Production could still be a reality, and maybe even during the end of July. Thanks to Mike, we will be tracking this.

Other than that, there is full sailing on all 2019 orders except for the ZR1 which remains on its very slow (less than 200 per month) controlled production allocation — as it will all year.

Here’s a surprise, that not a single C7 Corvette order will move forward this week, e.g., no allocations for any model 2019 Corvette. Perhaps this is because this is the first week of the typical two week summer vacation, and they already have production totally booked starting July 9th right through at least the end of July. Thank you Mike for again providing us this weekly constraint update information.

Today’s constraint report thanks to Mike Furman ([email protected]).

As can be seen below, we have constraints on the almost-departed Admiral Blue, and the year long controlled-allocation ZR1. Other than that, smooth sailing.

Thanks to [email protected], we have learned that there are no allocations this week. Interesting, that this is the fourth week in a row that there are no allocations.

Thank you Mike!

Thank you Mike Furman for today’s 2019 Corvette constraint consensus updates. Bottom line, for the 5th week in a row, GM is not accepting, at least on paper, any new 2019 orders from its dealers. However, the top forum dealers are getting a few orders picked up sub-Rosa.

As seen above, information Mike had heard earlier due to one of his customer’s wanting the BGA “build you own motor” option, we now have written confirmation that this is the very last month for that program (at least for 2019). Specifically Mike learned months ago that to get one of his ZR1 customers the build your own motor option, that customer had to choose an assembly date no later than the week of August.

Thank you Mike Furman for today’s 2019 Corvette constraint consensus updates. Bottom line, for the 6th week in a row, GM is not officially accepting, at least on paper, any new 2019 orders from its dealers. Please see the below chart for today — the start of this week’s consensus. However, the top forum dealers are getting most of their orders picked up due to GM’s policy of rewarding those dealers who, due to their incredible sales levels, have earned those extra allocations.

While at first glance below it appears that with “0%” constraints all over the grid, that order’s are constrained, those constrainted are for a very limited combination of a dealer LPO accessory and specific colors. Other than those limited combo’s, the only constraints are for the all-year-controlled allocation ZR1’s.

In other words, 99% of non-ZR1 ordering gates are wide open.

There are no constraints on any 2019 Corvette orders this consensus other than the year long controlled allocation process for very limited ZR1’s being prodcued

No official allocations this week, though it is expected that GM again rewards it biggest dealers with extra allocations for their earned extra sales.

Thank you Mike.
