So I'll have one heck of a story to tell here if this all goes through...

Long story short for now, I'm still at 1100 but my dealer worked with his general manager and got an order filled for me.

I was doing more follow up this morning and my dealer got this email from his GM:

"It will show up after June cycle 2 consensus."

I asked him what this means, does it mean it will be produced in June?

He replied with, "IT COULD BE ILL KNOW TPW VERY SOON THEN ILL BE ABLE TO LOCK ON TO IT FOR YOU.IT WILL BE PRODUCED CONGRATS!!!"

What's the June cycle 2 consensus?

What are your guys thoughts??

Getting excited now... I'll share my whole story once I have the car in hand. :)

The last 2014 consensus was June 12, and by the end of today, your dealer will know, 1000%, whether you car will be built as a 2014. If it is not status code 2000 today, it will not. Hope that is not the case, instead that you are status 2000 today.

There was no June 2 consensus -- thinking that was a typo.

Hi Elegant,

Thanks for the reply. To clarify, it didn't say a 'June 2' consensus. My dealer's District Manager stated, "It will show up after June cycle 2 consensus". What is June cycle 2 consensus?

Thanks again.

A consensus is actually a five day process. There was this consensus process which started on Thursday, May 29th and ended on Tuesday, June 2nd. As be learned from "mjw930" (thanks Mark for all the detailed info you provided to us all earlier as quote below):

Consensus Process:

Dealers get their application report today (Thursday: consensus); they assign orders to allocation by Monday and on Tuesday GM processes the orders which is when their status changes. At least that's how I understand the system works but I'm certainly not the authority on dealer process.

Consensus - Twice a month GM loads their "Estimated Shipments" into the order workbench. They determine how many of each product we have "earned". Based on a "snapshot" of our inventory, they consider our "adjusted day supply" (ADS) to the national ADS. We then review the estimated shipments and enter our 3 month forecast and requested quantities and submit. Unless GM has more capacity at a factory than dealers request, you pretty much are limited to what they say you can have. We can turn down allocation, those units go to dealers that have requested more than GM estimated for them.

Final Consensus - This is the amount of product we get after GM has reviewed our requested quantities.

DOSP: the weekly order cycle. On Thursday dealers can place orders for units allocated to them. Orders must be placed by 9PM Eastern Time Saturday.

The weekly process consists of 4 stages.

1. Constraints Distribution - Dealers are informed on constraints to review before placing orders.

2. Dealer Order Submission - Dealers can order on Thursday, Friday or no later than midnight on Saturday. ( You can submit orders earlier but you don't know the contraints. A Constraint is a limit placed on a specific build configuration )

3. The 4-Pass Process - GM will attempt to place each dealers orders on Mondays using a 4-Pass process. ( At this point a dealer may get more or less than was allocated if they asked.)

4. Dealer Review-You can review your placed orders for changes or replacements until Tuesday at 9pm ET. That's when the orders are sent for production.
****
GM moves orders from 1100 to 2000 on the Tuesday after the dealer is given that specific allocation. How quickly you move from A to B completely depends on the dealer's allocation. If the dealer had one when you placed the order, you are either at 2000 or will be next week. If the dealer was not yet assigned that allocation, you will continue to be at 1100 until he does. The length of time depends completely on allocations and your priority on that list.

Hi elegant, sorry for the delay, been insanely busy with everything (work, school,....and most importantly, the car!!)

I ordered the car on 23 May and I was at 1100 for a couple of weeks. I made a change (added the magnetic ride) and I went to 2051. I never hit 2000. On 17 Jun, I was still at 2051 (Order changed). I finally hit 2500 on 18 Jun and 3000 on 19 Jun!!!

No TPW yet but I'm hoping it's soon, REAL soon! When everything is all said and done, and I have the car in hand, I'll be sure to tell my story. I went from being told "definitely getting the car" to "definitely NOT getting the car" to my dealer working with his district sales manager and to "definitely getting the car"!!

I truly believe my dealer went way above and beyond the call of duty to help me. I'll post more updates as I get them.

Thanks for this outstanding forum! If I hadn't found this, I probably wouldn't been as persistant or armed with the knowledge that reside in these pages. I would have been 'vetteless'.

Thanks again!

Jason
