  • Murray you da Man! This is my first vette TPW 11/30. Tedious job your doing, don’t know how longer you can keep this up. However much appreciated by MY 2020 and certainly will be in future by MY 2021 if you continue.
    thanks

    • Based on numbers, looks like if they keep moving (no more covid and no more supply issues), they could start 21 production week of 14th? Any ideas out there if the line will shut down for any re-tooling etc? Assuming they shut down for the holidays, so that's a few weeks lost as well, yes?

          • My CMG, 3LT, # 16,986 rolled off the line sometimes during the second shift on 11/20.......4000 code says vehicle available to ship. I emailed the CC and got this reply back
            We have located you order # ****** and can see your vehicle is at the event description 4000. That means it is on HOLD FOR QUALITY CHECK NOW THAT IT HAS BEEN PRODUCED. This is to ensure that our models live up to the world class CORVETTE quality before we send it out for delivery. CHECK Back every 2 to 3 weeks for UPDATES?

            • Ready to ship means just that. It's waiting for transport. CC has failed again.

                Congrats! If GM designed quality into the engineering and manufacturing process better, they wouldn't need as much end point quality control...thought they would have learned that in the 80s but... I'm hopeful for the C8 and haven't had many problems at all over the last 20 years of owning GM cars and trucks, but there sure have been enough sad stories out there...

                  CONGRATS! Mine was built last Mon, and Wed Shane emailed to say it was made available to the Museum for delivery. So there’s no telling how quickly it will be ready.

                  • BIG THANKS to everyone for your feedback on 16,986. I have been waiting since August of 2019, I guess a little more waiting won't hurt. Congrats to everyone finally getting their cars and good luck to those who will soon get them.

                    • Anyone heard why the completed vehicle count has dropped off so much the last few days?

                      Comment


                      • Im sure we will have better clarity come Tuesday. Lets all hope and pray if needed that it did not slow/stop due to more parts delays

                        • Mine should be completed Tuesday but all I can do is keep my fingers crossed. Are the shippers taking days off like UAW?

                          • I got the same email regarding status 4000 and waiting 2 to 3 weeks to check back with them.

                            The 7 C8's in the picture are at Estero Bay Chevrolet in Estero, Florida. Looking at their VIN's (and Murray's excellent chart) it looks like they were produced Tuesday morning and at the dealer by Sunday morning. So, unless your car has issues it looks like the time from production to delivery will be relatively quick.
