The theory is related to constraints. The constrained items I'm referring to are obviously the z51 package, the visible carbon fiber roof, the carbon flash mirrors/spoiler, the carbon fiber dash, and more recently the body color roof which is also made of carbon fiber. Now to my theory, would we all agree that these items and their materials are expensive? And being expensive General Motors wouldn't want every stingray or even the majority made with these options because it would cut in to profits. So the theory is that too many people ordered z51's and carbon fiber, and not enough cheaper or "base" materials were being used, so GM had too many extra base parts and needed to sell more of them before they sold premium materials, and that's where we get "constraints" or what I might call controlled product selection. Your dealer tells you that material is unavailable so that you might not want to wait and order the base materials, or you wait, which would also lead to the same result; somebody else buys the base. Basically I don't think its a lack of parts for z51 or carbon fiber, but rather an over abundance of base materials that need to be sold. - maybe some kind of ratio: for every 10 base stingrays they can make 1 z51. It would make sense from a business stand point. Thoughts? Or was this already more or less obvious?
