If so, how long does it typically take for the dealer, after a given consensus, to be able to tell you if/when you "should/could" be up for allocation? Just curious, sitting at 1100 right now and today(?) would be my first consensus since the prelim order was entered.

Dealers get their application report today (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.

I found this on another site, it seems to track with what's been published here.

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 - I don't remember what DOSP stands for. It is 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.

Spoke with Conti. Apparently this week is a "bye week" for some reason. : (. Next Thurs is the next chance to get picked up (for me, ie 1100 to 2000).

I heard why, GM is closing ALL US plants for 2 weeks in April due to inventory piling up. Sure, we all know there's less than a 7 day supply of Stingrays but I imagine it's a UAW thing, you shut down one you have to shut them all down.

Do you know which 2 weeks, I have a TPW of 3-31 and would hate to have it moved back!

I would highly, highly doubt that BGAP is going to be shut down. They can not make enough of them, and there are no provisions in UAW contracts that require all plants to be shut down if one or even many shut down for product oversupply.

Also, checked several definitive auto sources, and not a one of them is saying that BGAP is going to be shut down. Conversely, a shut down for GM pickup plants is likely due to poor sales of the greatly revamped new model.

There has always been a scheduled April 18th "blackout," no tour day.

John,

I tend to agree with you and the "shutdown" may coincidental to BGAP using these 2 weeks for pilot 2015 builds but here is the exact email I got from a salesman (I don't call him mine because I haven't placed the order yet).

GM announce a few minutes ago that they are shutting down
production at all assembly plants in the U.S. for 2 weeks due to excess
supply. So, I have allotment that will allow delivery, however, we are
backed up 2 additional weeks. Would look at 11-12 weeks to get a
Corvette.
I know he's a salesman and I take everything they say with a grain of salt but he has no reason to lie to me, I want to give him an order and he's setting my expectations.

So your saying 11-12 weeks or 3 months to get a new ordered Corvette that means you get it in late June early July. And August 12th they start making 2015 models. So within 40 days you could have had a 2015 made and not have a 1yr old model, Hmmm

They quote on the long side. Based on allocation reports the next consensus where they will be allowed to order would have a tentative production week of May 5th. If there were no delays and with Museum delivery that would put delivery no later than June 1st. The earliest delivery of a 2015 would be early to mid September so I would have the car for a little over 3 months and not be subject to any MY2015 price increases AND get Cyber Gray......

I haven't made a final decision but it looks like I have at least 2 more weeks to decide.

According to this thread, the earliest you can actually place an order and expect it to be allocated is June 26.

They start making new 15's on Aug 12, but that doesn't take I to account the new model year QC hold, which based on past practice with both C6's and the initial year of C7's, could be from 2-6 weeks, plus transport time. This would suggest mid to late Sep as the earliest '15 delivery.

If your ok with a 1yr old model then go for it. Waiting 30-40 days is nothing when your waiting 3-6 months.
Just be thankful you can get one. All the dealers in my Province cannot get anymore Allocations and I have been on a list since OCT 1/13 for some reason Canada only got around 300 car. total BS but oh well.

I placed my order on 13 November last year. My TPW was to be the week of 17 March, which is this week. So far, no notice as to whether it has been produced yet. If you haven't yet placed an order and you can either pick it up out of state or have it courtesy delivered, order it from a bigger dealer like MacMulkin or Kerbeck etc. I've been extremely patient but if I had it to do over again, that's what I would do. Hope this helps someone!

Actually it's a 3 month gap at best, assuming I could get in on the first batch and their isn't any first batch QC hold. Having it June 1st at a known price vs. maybe getting it mid to late September at an unknown price with unknown option packages is worth thinking about. I also don't know if they would batch in a Supplier Price deal in the first batch so that may add more weeks to the wait.

Lots to consider.

In my opinion, getting it in June or July gives you driving time for the summer of 2014 whereas September could possibly eliminate any driving until 2015 (well at least for us Canadians) leaving you to look at it in your garage all winter itching to drive it every time you start it and hear it's melodic v8 symphony.

Just my 2 cents worth.

I'm in Florida, that's not an issue but your point is very valid for northerners who refuse to drive their Vette in the winter.
