    Whereas during the C7 generation it did take longer to make a convertible than a couple, I just checked with a couple of others and none of us three are aware that HTC production will slow their production times down compared to coupes. We do not think we all missed something someone wrote or said — but if someone has a source of that we would like to read it.

    In fact GM told some of its dealerships that they can accept any number of HTC orders.

    There were several other C7 assembly line stipulations as to order sequencing (such as not three Z06’s back to back), but as of yet we are unaware of any such C8 production line limitations. Again, anyone have contrary information please?

        1100's are not included in the 20181 - "sold order" is a loose term.

            I reached 3000 on 4/1

              OK - Murray is right, they can build them all IF they get a second shift. If they stay on the pace of the last week and run a 50 hour single shift, they can build about 525 per week. That will leave them about 4700 short. If they work one shift and Saturday's the number goes to 630 a week and they are 2500 short. They are close, but it all depends on that second shift and parts availability.

                I'm normally a very positive person, but this 2020 C8 production is a total project management fiasco, and despite unforeseen circumstances, GM is partially to blame for this. Poor planning and execution! There's no excuse for not being prepared to begin a second shift on July 6th. I hope they can pull t off.

                Their project managers need a good swift kick in the pants, right out the door, and I can imagine there are about 10,000 anxious C8 people willing to help do it.

                  When my c8 arrives I'm happy..

                  life goes on....times flying by so before you know it the new c8 will be ready for pickup.

                  should be worth a few laughs.

                    Those are neither a fair nor accurate statementS. How can in this Covid supply materials wreck, can GM get 400 independent company parts’ suppliers to get back up to their pre-covid planned production levels? It has nothing to do with BGA management limitations and everything to do with the C8’s 400 suppliers getting their supplies from their suppliers to produce every part needed to built every C8.

                          Disagree. This is a fair statement. The communications on the numbers has and continues to be unclear. The preparation of the dealers to handle the reordering for the 1100's has not happened. They do not have ordering guides, paint samples, and the configurator for 2021 is not online, yet there may be anywhere from 3000 to 10000 1100's out there trying to make decisions on a 2021 without sufficient information and we have 30 days to decide what to do. GM has mismanaged this despite knowing for weeks that the reordering process was coming.

                            Where does it say you have 30 days to decide? To me you will have at least 3 months.

                              Just called my dealer. I will not be getting a 2020 C8. Ordered it last August. I will now have to reorder a 2021 and supposedly will be in their first allocation order. Expect a December delivery.......................
