  • C8 Ordering What’s Ahead

    Some birdies but not all are chirping — so while stronger than a possibility, as of yet no GM confirmation of the following.

    What are the slightly more than a majority of birdies chirping? That there will be the January consensus this Thursday. However, a minority are saying “probably so but perhaps not until the following week.”

    Here however is the real surprise that some birdies are whispering that at least the bigger dealers will be getting getting their February allocation number this week but just their allocation amount for only month of February. However, these whispers are far from a bird-swell — and as we know GM can change its possible plans at any time.

      John, forgive me for asking a question here, but I am brand new to this Forum. I do not know how to "track" my C8 order. I've heard indirectly there's a TPW for this week. What information must I obtain before being able to "track" the order, please? Also, please direct me to the correct Forum page or pages to keep up-to-date on topics like this. Thank you very much, and thank you for creating this Forum! bob

        Bob, we wish it were that simple. Let’s please start at the beginning. Did your dealership tell you that they had an allocation from GM that they already matched with your order? If so, ask them for your six digit order number, not that that will get you the exact info you are wanting but would be a great start). If your order has not yet been accepted by GM, that is a whole different ball park so please answer that first question and that will help us to help you.

        Also what is your dealer’s name and town? That too will be useful. [It might takes several back next forth posts to get you closer to the info you are really wanting

          What does the above represent? FE6 was the "base" Z06 suspension on the C7, and 3.42:1 was the rear axle ratio for the C7 with a manual transmission. The C8 has a 5:17 axle ratio. I think this graphic is from the C7, not the C8.

            You eagle eye. I could not find one for a C8 so deliberately took a tiny part of my 2015 Z06 order and made it thumbnail so it would be hard to heard. I wasn’t expecting anyone to do what you did. Can’t get anything by you meyerweb.

              John, I'm trying to obtain the order # now. The sales manager I'd been dealing with since Oct. 4, 2019, has been out with Covid. The dealer is Emich Chevrolet in the Denver area. Do you want to continue the "several back next forth posts" here? You're welcome to email me directly if you'd prefer. I'm happy either way; I appreciate your help!

                So is the Feb only allocation a good thing or a bad thing? Were the dealers assuming the would get another 3 months worth? Im guessing they were hoping for at least another quarters worth.

                  Hey Bob you may want to try Len Lyall Chevy in Aurora. Ask for Nolan Harris totally straight shooter. He is the fleet and Vette specialist. He has hooked us up on our last 3 cars and is handling my incoming C8 HTC.

                    Again that is just what we are hearing but not from GM officially (at least not yet). We need confirmation if that is going to occur.

                    At the same time, if it were, the reality is that every dealer, every person would prefer more specificity for a longer time period. But can dealers and customers work with just a February allocation amount, then later get another month, etc? We know they can and will do well if those are the cards they are dealt.

                      John, are the birdies still jabber-jawing about tomorrow or is the consensus among the birdies that next week will be better timing??

                        They have been silent the last two days. We will need to wait until tomorrow. To me, it is a week early based on the past patterns of it being mostly the third Thursday of the month for C8’s, but again with GM we never know until they tell us for sure.
