    I sure understand. I would be feeling the same if I were in the 3000 status group. This confirming info came from the absolute most impeccable internal source and there was no equivocation, no hesitation, no doubt on this person’s part.

      Could GM however sustain 186 C8 completed per day? If so, then there will be some days available to start customer 2021’s early the week of December 14th. Yesterday was a good day of 185 production, but that is an outlier in the last five previous days of production when the daily average was 172 vehicles per day.
      And I filled out the SS with those numbers (11.6 cars per hour per BG Manager) and they will still fall short.

        So this may be common knowledge to most of you but it's going to help a few. it's my understanding today consensus was given to dealerships, to define, that is the number they are to expect of allocations to receive during the 1st cycle of the 2021 Corvette. next Thursday or some other date near by the actual allocations will be given that will allow a dealership to match your 1100 order to an allocation.

          Not expected. It's a hard number. Next thursday and the following thursday they will be asked to match an allocation to an order. Then that is 2000 status and can't (normally) be changed.

            Thank Murray20c8. Your charts continue to show why December 8th is not going to be the start of 2021 C8 customer car unless conditions change with such things as a few Saturday overtime production days AND sustained daily production numbers in at least the low 180’s and if I did the math, probably more like 183+ average.

              Any other confirmations that all dealers got their Q1 consensus today? Small local dealer is helpful, but says they are expecting it next week and haven't seen it yet...

              Where/how is a dealer notified of their consensus? Through GMGlobalConnect? Workbench?

                  My medium sized dealer did get their numbers today. He asked for my final build choices.

                    John, did your birdies say how long GM is going to build the 2021's. That might help determine how many cars the dealers will get in the first three months.

Then as late as three decades ago the same thing happened, though the dealer stood up and said, “I know you did not order this upgrade but it is now here; we will reduce the final price you get that option for free. Lesson learned.

                      My wife now reads our original paper created list out loud and I check off each option on the computer sheet to insure it was not missed there. Then I do the reverse. We check and re-check and then re-check again to insure what we are getting is just what we want!
                      Real life example. I originally ordered the Natural Dipped interior, which includes Natural seat belts at no charge, and at the last minute changed it to the Natural interior, for which Natural seat belts are an extra charge. Both the dealer and I failed to delete the Natural seat belts when we changed the interior code, so I ended up paying whatever it was ($350?) extra for the seat belts. Not a big deal, but it is definitely worth checking the printout.

                        Correct, In order to complete all MY2020's by the 8th, adding all 6 double shift saturdays they would have to make 182.2 cars per day. If they didn't add those Saturdays, they would have to make make 236.9 cars per day. You also notice that the MurraySheet puts 0 on the 18th. I agree, I can't see them building cars the day before everyone struts out the door.
                        It's a pretty safe bet the first MY2021 is actually going to be built in the year 2021 ... what a concept!

                          I politely disagree. Why would they not continue building cars? Cars have to be on the production line at every station for the assembly workers to have any work to do. Trying to shut down the line to zero cars on the line and then starting it back up again from zero would be much more difficult than just stopping the line, taking the Christmas break, and coming back and continue where they left off. Like they do every weekend. Not to mention that GM is in the business of selling cars, that would be hundreds of lost sales. I predict that the first production 2021 C8 will be on the line immediately following the last 2020. They should get a few 2021s finished this year.

                              We are suggesting that that is bad information. They can’t finish the 2020s by then. 2021s will likely start at the end of the week of 12/14, probably on the 17th or 18th.

                                Unless GM is planning lots of overtime, the 8th won't happen.
