We do not yet know because GM does not yet know.

    However based on history, of course if that is repeated this generation, is that while the initially produced ones have a long hold, as time goes on successive ones have a shorter and shorter hold. Could consequently be that those in March have (wild SWAG guess) a two week hold?” We so hope!

    At the same time we need to think about this IMO in reverse. What if GM finds an issue that takes them longer to resolve than either they or we are wanting. Would be want them to ship C8’s that they know to have an issue, shipping them to your dealer who a) has no parts, b) Tech’s training is minimal, and c) for complex install and removal issues, your dealership’s service bay does not have the best equipment to most efficiently to effect the fix( whereas conversely there are tens of millions of dollars of specialized C8 equipment and tools located with BGA).

    So while all of use would be very unhappy campers if the QCH is longer than four weeks at the outset, if is is longer (as it was for some C7’s due to a significant issue), I personally do not want mine to be shipped to my receiving dealer until GM is very, very happy with its functioning of all of its 5,000 components, e.g., everything!

    And yet if GM does not find any issues, I and you and everyone would wish for the shortest new generation QCH in a long time, perhaps even as little as a couple of weeks. Again GM does not know the QCH’s length now either.
    Great response thanks for the information.

    Does someone know when this QCH begins, after x number of cars are built, a begin date sometime early in Feb?, a cutoff date sometime in Feb? Will cars produced early in March be subject to the QCH?

    I can't find the thread but the C7's saw one and it is expected, though not carved in stone that it will be 4 weeks. They are currently building "Captured Test Vehicles" for use at several driving experience programs like Ron Fellows and the museum and GM employees to flog around. They will build about 500 of those ending at the end of this month. The QCH is so if they find issues the customer cars will be close to the people who actually have the technical experience to fix them

    What is the nature of the QCH (Quality Control Hold)?

    Do they park them and inspect them? Do they build some non-customer cars during this time and then beat on them and see how they hold up and then make any necessary adjustments to the cars that they are holding?

    Ok, information was released saying they needed three weeks for C8 production transition and that ended yesterday. Any news on CTF (Captured Test Fleet) production starting today?

    I know that the news will be disappointing to some (assuming the Concierge got it right that there is no consensus this coming Thursday), but whether there is a consensus this Thursday or not until next Thursday the 19th, will not result in a one day delay for those orders being picked up actually starting down the assembly line.

    Nevertheless, we all hope that the next consensus is just days away!
    John,
    Thanks! Only time will tell. Concierge that has been helping me for months has been fantastic! I will be glad to get mine...

    When for example, my C7 Z06 was a Museum Delivery, there were also too many wanting Museum Delivery for all to be accommodated during the first two days, so some were a couple of more days out. Best of luck yours being earliest possible. NCM staff will do all they can for all they can.
    Good advice, thanks!

    I know there are a million variables to the answer of this question.... Anyone have an idea of how long one might wait for a C8 Corvette to be delivered to California?

    2/3. I'm assuming a 4 week QA hold, but I should get it right after that as I opted for Museum delivery.

    I heard from my dealer today that the 1st wave would be on the 12th, and the 2nd wave would be on the 19th.

    But then he went on to say, "Who really knows", so I guess we'll have to just wait and see.
