2014 Corvette Stingray Constraints:

Target Production Week 09/30/13 – 10/06/13
01483 AE4-SEATS, COMPETITION SPORT, BUCKET National Qty Available = 0
01485 C2Z-ROOF PANEL, REMOVABLE CARBON FIBER National Qty Available = 0
01486 CSM-ROOF PACKAGE, CARBON FIBER, DUAL National Qty Available = 0

Note that this is for newly entered orders; orders in production code 3000 and up are not affected by these constraints.

Constraints come and go, sometimes weekly. For example,the dash carbon fiber option is no longer on constraint, yet we know have the exposed carbon fiber roof.

Can you please explain the meaning of constraints in regards to ordering> Thanks.
It means a specific component is temporarily unavailable and it normally impacts newly submitted orders. Those with a 3000 or higher production code on their order are usually OK. It is a typical byproduct of the just-in-time delivery and manufacturing process.

Thanks, jsvette. Oh, now that you mention it, and to clarify something else for me- the higher the production code number, the sooner the new owner is getting the car ... right?

Yes that is technically correct. Here are the codes:
1000 Order On Hold at Dealership
1100 Order Placed at Dealership
1101 Order Entered into System
1102 Order Entered via Web
2000 Order Accepted by Chevrolet
2001 Order Generated to Dealer
2005 Order Replaced with GM Prospec Order
2030 Order Edited by Chevrolet
2050 Order Changed
2500 Order Preferenced (or "Picked Up" or "Imaged"), Sent to Production
3000 Order Accepted by Production Control
3100 Order Available to Sequence (now becomes more stable)
3300 Order Selected and Scheduled for Production by Assembly Plant (Target Production Week usually available now)
3400 Order Broadcasted for Production (Internal Plant Order Produced)
3800 Vehicle Produced
4000 Vehicle Available to Ship
4104 Bailment Invoice Created
4B00 Bayed ("B", not 8)
4106 Bailment Released
4150 Vehicle Invoiced (Dealer Billed)
4200 Vehicle Shipped
4300 Intermediate Delivery
4V03 Estimated Delivery Date
4800 Rail Ramp Unload
5000 Vehicle Delivered to Dealer
6000 Vehicle Delivered to Customer
9000 Order Cancelled

Having said that, there are sometimes hiccups where for example a code will go backwards or the vehicle may actually be further along than the code you are given. But all in all it is normally the higher the code (other than 9000) the closer your car is to getting into your garage. :cool:
