Talking about hitting the nail on the head with a 32 ounce hammer, especially 7-M customers jumping ahead surprisingly.I seriously doubt if GM has sourced enough parts for an 85% take rate for Z06 A8 for model year 2015. Given that type of take rate, I now expect the A8 to be on constraint even after it is available to be ordered.
If people are not willing to change to M7, they will be passed by others who are no where near the top of the dealers' internal order lists. We could have people that would normally be on a list so deep they would only be able to get a 2016 now jumping over most everyone and to the front of the line. Also, if there are NO takers even when going deeper down on customer lists, how ironic would it be for manual Z06s to be ordered for dealer stock?
John, Are you waiting for an A8 or is your order in already with an M7?Still rumors, not confirmed, that the A8 will not be ready and orderable on November 13th (which was the latest date GM said in their September 18th internal memo). So far GM has met all their announced deadlines, in far exceeded all of them, since the StingRay was revealed on 1.13.13.
Once the A8 ordering door opens, all those with A8's who were ahead on the original dealer priority line, will move back to the front of the line...
You might find a new one on the dealer floor years from now. If I found a VY, M7 Z07 I'd drive it right out the door.So this brings up an interesting thought. How rare, hate to use the word rare, maybe limited, will be a M7 Z06? Years from now when these might come up for sale it just might be hard to find a good used M7 Z06........
