You need more information than that to know.“If you don’t already have your order into the dealer, it’s probably going to be later,” Jeuchter added.
Question if GM is not accepting Vert/A8 orders yet, although I gave my order to my dealer and they have a Z06 allocation, will I get a 2015 or waiting to 2016?
And I would bet those numbers are a little on the conservative side.Thumbs up chevy! for beating the exotics car. 2.95sec 0-60! great performance, even bested the new Lamborghini Asterion 910hp 0-60 in 3sec. Think of a 79k car beating 100k+ car in every aspect. The dodge challenger and charger is also doing a great job in terms of performance.
The amount of GM allocations is based on how many they can build with specific options; in other words, how many of each necessary part for each option can the suppliers' provide. Looking at the 2014 StingRay production/allocation/constraint history, the key issue is almost always supplier parts' capability. Same issue for building Z06's, how many parts can the suppliers make. Of course all this must be also evaluated also in terms of the incredible demand for the Z06.I planned on getting a vert, but I got tired of waiting so I switched my order over to a coupe, and I'm at 3000 like many of you. I'm not sure what Tadge is saying with more orders than they can build. Isn't controlled by available allocations, per GM? Also I heard that there were still many open allocations for the 7 speed, as most were waiting for the "faster" 8 speed.
Thanks for replying. One point I would say, I'm questioning about the 5600 orders is there actually 5600 buyers in hand with cash/financing vs dealers putting in orders. Dealers can put in as many orders as they want, but how many allocations do they actually have and how many buyers orders meet their allocations(?). I just think there is a little PR going on, in creating a scarcity, which incites more purchases.The amount of GM allocations is based on how many they can build with specific options; in other words, how many of each necessary part for each option can the suppliers' provide.

In terms of your second issue, your hearing that there were unused 7-speed manual trans Z06 allocations. While it is true that overwhelmingly most orderers want an 8-speed, and there were dealers advertising/looking for 7-speed Z06 purchasers, by the end of the first consensus, nationwide, there were no unused 7-speed manual transmission allocations.
Never a question of Juechter's veracity! I don't even know him personally. BG may have 5600 orders, but I nor anyone else knows with certainty if they have 5600 buyers (not dealers orders) behind those orders. If they do, that would be great! I do know GM is in the business of promoting car sales, as are all car manufacturers.If Tadge says, we have 5,600 Z06 orders, they have 5,600 orders. He does not lie. Of course, as posted above, we do not know how firm they are. My suspicion is that no matter how many are "soft," they will not be able to build nearly enough 2015 Z06's to meet demand. Also as posted above, wait until the convertible and A8 constraints are removed!
Since we got the 2.95 seconds to 60 announcement this week, personally been contacted by two individuals who just decided to get a Z06, asked for my help. Think many who read the magazine reviews coming out soon and more will continue to jump on, add to demand.
Just like many 2014 Z-51 orderers would could not get a 2014, moved (not by their own choice to getting a 2015), same will happen to many, many, many who want a 2015 Z06, butforced to move to a 2016 Z06.
