This isn't to bust anybody's chops but to point out that Z51s are getting through in spite of the constraints.

Ordered 10/31 (ok late 10/30). Order status of 3300 on 11/20. Ok, so what…. Here's what was ordered:
Laguna blue
Z51
3LT - Black leather
Mag Ride
Clear roof
Chrome Wheels
Perf exhaust

I hope I didn't just jinx things but it looks like January is a distinct possibility for getting my new Stingray. 2014_chevrolet_corvette_corvette-coupe.png-5.jpeg

Man I am happy for you but pissed at the same time. I ordered mine on 8/29 and am sitting at. 3000 due to the z51constraint. I was really hoping I would have the car this year but that is not happening. Waiting this long for something is very frustrating.

What really sucks is a fellow forum member ordered his from the same dealership (pretty much same car as mine) on 8/27 and got his ride last month.

I feel for you. For sure not trying to make anyone feel worse. Just that there are orders getting through. Hope you get some good news soon.

I ordered what I wanted. Wasn't even thinking about resale or anything else. You are still in the very few that actually have one. :)

I wired a deposit on 11/4/13 to Kerbeck
started reading the forum and realized the CF roof and dash were on constraint and dropped both of those options
3000 on 11/13/13
changed the wheels from chrome to black and added the CF mirror and spoiler went back to 2000 on 11/15/13
3000 again on 11/20/13
still there as of Friday but hopefully move up this week
Thinking late January delivery (would be sooner but they are off part of this coming week for Thanksgiving and two weeks for the Christmas/New Years Holiday)
My options are listed with my signature including Z51

edit: went to 3300 on 11/23/13 (as best as I can tell)
Museum contacted me on 12/5/2013 to set up delivery after 12/30 with a TPW of the 16th.

That's cool that you are still in the running even with the changes. I was thinking early to mid Jan for mine and the a seems to line up with late Jan for yours. Of course anything can happen…
What's curious to me is that it seems that the more recent orders are getting through whereas some of the older orders are not. Granted we are only seeing a couple of data points along the way.

1100 to 1100 in 63 days and counting - it really matters who you order through. Starting to get frustrated here.
Yikes! Maybe time to shop around?

A key indicator from my very limited experience is the dealer should have a Corvette specialist. Said specialist will have gone to the big training event in Vegas. They had to pony up some $$ to do that so no doubt the dealer want's to sell (not just order) some Stingrays.

Oh man, I'm not going to be able to sleep for the new few weeks. Just went to 3400 as of yesterday! What are the chances it gets here for Christmas:eek: and how will I fit it under the tree in the living room?

Now that mine has cleared 3400, I'm sure that opens the gate for yours to get through. We'll need to compare VINs to see how close they are on the production line (of course I'm assuming they are sequential). Amanda is driving the identical twin of the C7 that I test drove (#251).
