  • ZR1's for sale

    Just today the Autotrader has 150 ZR1's available. Cars .com has about the same but some are the same cars listed. But they are out there for sale. With production hitting 2000 units very soon.

    I do not know how AutoTrader nor Cars.com computes its “for sale” amounts, but we do know that dealer listed stock is often pre-sold, as follows:

    Customer A customers orders a Corvette (ZR1 or otherwise) from dealer A. It is exactly the way the customer wanted, and exactly as listed on a written contract between the customer and the dealer.

    BGA builds that exact car, puts it out on its “approved for shipping” lot ready for its contractor Jack Cooper transport to pick it up. As it leaves the yard the dealer is invoixws, and it automatically and immediately goes into the receiving dealer’s stock as available. Sometimes it is also listed on the dealers stock orders on their computers as “inbound.” Again this occurs even for this example’s pre-sold order for a specific customer.

    Hence, if one just does the amount of dealer stock, it will always give a very inflated amount compared to what is really available.

    Again, I do not know whether either Autotrader nor Cars.com similar counts its stock, e.g. both of them saying that 150’s are available. But my guess is that while there are perhaps 20-40 ZR1’s available for real right now in the country, that the rest are pre-sold customer orders. Might they for example, be going to the dealer stock number and there getting numbers that way?

    Anyone know for sure please?

        The original December 11, 2017 memo GM sent to its dealers who were getting at least one 2019 ZR1 allocation, stated that the estimated end of ZR1 production was next month (that soon).

        Might this schedule still be accurate? We do not know and even GM used the word “estimated” in that memo.

        Or if as alleged by some, that the C8’s customer production might be slightly behind GM’s internal original schedule, might GM make some ZR1’s beyond the end of next month, e.g., continuing to produce ZR1’s beyond the end of next month for another month or two?

          They pay a fee to put them on the Autotrader or Cars.com. I was talking about all listing as well not just new. They have new , used and certified listings if they are listed you should be able to purchase them .

            Yes, they pay a fee. However, depending on unit volume of the dealer, many are not paying just to list another one of their units, they throw as many listings as possible in bulk to increase their exposure.

            I've seen many forum threads of potential ZR1 buyers finding an online ad of the specs they want, only to contact the dealer and it's been sold. So who knows how many of those ads are accurate.

              There are plenty of 'em out there..... if you want a coupe in black or gray. If you want a real color or a 'vert' (that's not orange) the pickins' are rather slim.

                Luck helped tremendously in finding a new ZR1 as follows:

                A neighboring dealership to me had their one ZR1 allocation, a customer who wanted andcustom ordered it, was that customer was buying it the day it arrived at the dealership. The next day they PDI’d it, but at the end of that process, it became available. For whatever reason, the customer backed out, and it went on the market for a few hours before a new buyer was found.

                Same thing happened to a friend (a fellow forum member), who first got screwed on his custom ordered C7 (made the first week or two of production), when at the last minute his dealer tacked on a $10,000 “market adjustment fee.” My friend walked away, then got on the phone at literally over the next day and half calling 80 of the largest Corvette dealers in the country — but to no avail. Then 24 hours later a call came from 1,250 miles away from a salesperson he has talked to two days earlier saying that his customer has just failed get financing on his Premiere Edition Stingray; my friend bought it in the next few minutes.

                Luck and persistence often helps.

                    Exactly. Finding one to your specs is unlikely which naturally leads to going through that "year long process". Even with the thousands of Z06's avail.,finding one to your liking can be difficult when you consider price, milage, condition, warrantee voiding mods and the specs you want.

                          I think far more than 50 cars and all real. They are not hard to find. The cars and Autotrader listings don't show all of them.

                            According to Mr. ***** on his Coffee with ***** youtube channel ZR1 production will continue through July 2019. Therefore I would conclude that C7 production will continue at least through July 2019.

                              Wow, that is going to be one L O N G 2019 model year production, that is assuming that is correct info (that Rick’s source told him accurate info). That info, if confirmed, would clinch it, that SR/GS/Z06’s are also going to continue production through July, as producing just 168 ZR1’s per month is sure not cost effective to keep the plant running.
