After months of reading and researching I finally placed my order today on a 2015 Stingray. Non-Z51, 2LT, Laguna Blue, Black Leather, Transparent Roof, 7-speed Manual and performance exhaust.

I want to thank all who contribute to the information in this forum. I feel I was well prepared, knew what to expect, and made a well researched and educated decision on what, and where to order.

I could not believe my luck when I received a call back from one of the local dealers and he told me they would honor supplier pricing on a new 2015 order. They are in the top 100 dealers of 2014 Corvette sales and have allocation.

Now the wait begins...

CONGRATULATIONS!

If you think you were anxious for Christmas as a kid, that's NOTHING compared to the waiting that's ahead of you for your Corvette.

Yes some dealers are starting to open to suppliers, I also waited to get supplier and now I have to wait for the car. GM knows that sales at first is hot and then it tappers off after the rush of people that can't wait for the car. Not every one want's a Stingray or need's one, It takes me a long time to make what little money I earn to buy the car that I don't need but want. At supplier you well not take such a large hit when you no longer want it. Here in California I take a large hit on Tax and California fees. Wish I could get the GM employee price but glad to get Supplier. My dealer is not one of the top 100 but was one of the first 900 for the C7. You most likely well get your before me, I am still sitting at 3rd on his list and they only get 2-3 per / mo.

Well bad news... got a call tonight from dealership and their new sales GM said he will not honor supplier anymore so I cancelled my order.
Oh well.. I guess its a waiting game again.

I'm not sure if it was a bait and switch or if they are being honest about getting a new sales GM in the past couple of days but that sucks.

Sorry to read that bjhayes. Any chance you can talk directly with the owner of the dealership?

There are a bunch of dealerships with big Corvette allocations willing to honor it. Look at the top 99 dealers thread and the top 3 will sort you out.

I may try to do that tomorrow but frankly I'm not sure I can trust them. I had the promise of supplier pricing in writing... TWICE... from them before I spent half a day traveling to their dealership and placing the order.
