  • C8 Corvette Stingray Orders - Event Codes and What They Mean

    As dealerships begin to enter 2020 Corvette Stingray orders, the following information can be helpful as you walk through the order process:

    Anyone can have an order at 1100...and it can sit in a dealership's workbench indefinitely. I had that happen in the past with a local dealership. They told me they had a C7 allocation for me, but in reality had given it to someone else and were currently without any allocations. When I asked for updates, I got the runaround. I eventually asked them what event code my order was at, and when they told me it was still at 1100, I told them I knew they had lied to me and that they didn't have an allocation for my build yet. They did some begging and were ultimately granted an extra allocation.

    Another thing to keep in mind is how constraints work. If your order contains an option that is currently under constraint, your order will sit around until the parts become available. You may have had the first order in at your dealership, but a constraint could cause many orders to move ahead of your order. If an option, like Rapid Blue, is not immediately available when production starts, be prepared to wait.

    In my opinion, the first truly exciting day is when an order goes to 3300 and the excitement and anticipation continues to build from there until it hits the best event code of all, 6000!

    Here are the various GM event codes and what they mean:

    1000 Order On Hold at Dealership
    1100 Order Placed at Dealership
    1101 Order Entered into System
    1102 Order Entered via Web
    2000 Order Accepted by Chevrolet
    2001 Order Generated to Dealer
    2005 Order Replaced with GM Prospec Order
    2030 Order Edited by Chevrolet
    2050 Order Changed
    2500 Order Preferenced (or “Picked Up” or “Imaged”), Sent to Production
    3000 Order Accepted by Production Control
    3100 Order Available to Sequence (now becomes more stable)
    3300 Order Selected and Scheduled for Production by Assembly Plant (Target Production Week - TPW - usually available now)
    3400 Order Broadcasted for Production (Internal Plant Order Produced)
    3800 Vehicle Produced
    4000 Vehicle Available to Ship
    4104 Bailment Invoice Created
    4B00 Bayed (“B”, not 8), Vehicle is waiting on transportation or pulled for quality control
    4106 Bailment Released
    4150 Vehicle Invoiced (Dealer Billed)
    4200 Vehicle Shipped
    4300 Intermediate Delivery
    4V03 Estimated Delivery Date
    4800 Rail Ramp Unload, vehicle at rail road destination awaiting truck transport to dealer
    5000 Vehicle Delivered to Dealer
    6000 Vehicle Delivered to Customer
    9000 Order Cancelled

      Thanks Jag. Reinforcing the above thread would mean just having everyone read it a second time. Again, thank you jagamajajaran.

      Using a few different words, that is if someone starts crowing that because their order went into today, and they state that means it will be build ahead of orders entered later, well we know that is absolutely incorrect, i.e, that nothing makes a single difference other than in the very first consensus, estimated as six to eight weeks from now, your order is matched with your dealer having an allocation for that exact consensus and your dealer matching the two up. So if my order for example were entered today and became 1100 status, yet your order were not entered into the system until the day of that first consensus, my order would NOT have any priority over yours (all else being equal).

      And when they are both entered the same date, as as noted in the OP constraints could effect one or both of them.

      We all have a long way to go, but here’s the really good news, and that is that GM does not make any profit on a car until it is sold — so they will be doing everything they can to sell as many C8’s as soon as they can.

        The other good news is there will be 2 shifts at the factory. Forgot how many there were in sept 2013 .

        Correct me if I’m wrong but there are allocations given to each participating dealer for the first 3 months. If you are let’s say #5 on the dealers list and the dealer has a total of 45 slots for those first 3 months . Then it’s a safe bet your order will get to Status 2000 in the first month as long as your order doesn’t have any restraints . What are your thoughts on this example John ?

          Also I remember back in 2013 the less options the less chance of a hold up in an order being accepted. Like a clear roof option for example. At least we only have one trans now. I remember some manuals were holding things up for awhile.

            If you’re not as high on the list as you would like, my salesman stated that historically, 30% of those on the list, drop off.
            If that holds true, and you are number 30, you may well become number 20 or so.

              Yes I can see that happening. Somebody on the list actually wants a Z06 or ZL1. But What confused me is one of my dealers called me on Wednesday and over the phone went over my order. I know he didn’t actually place an order. But the other dealer never took down any information only a deposit on Monday. Never got a call from them.

                I had my dealers 1st allocation in 2013, 2nd allocation was I believe the following week. The 2nd allocation was produced ahead of mine vin 15xx with mine being 20xx, possibly due to my LRG/Kalahari, no other restraints. However 15xx was in the group sent to and held at Nashville for quality control, and mine came in 1st, Oct 3, 2013. The point is, there are a lot of things that can happen during the whole process.

                  Thanks Jagman. Like I had posted earlier not understanding the event codes at the time, this has been very helpful.
                  And again , Thank You Tommy Thompson for being a straight shooter with me on how this works . I was told initially by Mr .Thompson of MacMulkin that it really does not matter where you are on a list, you may get your car a lot quicker than a person with a much lower number based on your options. But , thank you again , Jagman for making this more clear to me on how the event schedule works. It gives us a more intelligent approach to dealers when discussing status of our orders.. I am not worried as I am not going to order fancy seats or color options , Just a base Z51 with a few popular options and since I am on MacMulkins list with a low number well into his initial allotment of 100 cars. I may get my car quicker than most.

                    Thanks JustOneMore for underscoring the fact that nothing is precise as to when one will get their C8. I was # 53 on Kerbeck’s C6 Z06 list, yet got mine the very first one NCM delivered, and the very first one in the Pacific Northwest. This was due to a wide variety of reasons, including many of those that JustOneMore noted, and two others that were in addition to his.

                    Our car will arrive at our dealership the very day the transporter delivers it, and not one day before. I guarantee that. I also guarantee that there will be some additional surprises as to timing for each of us, and that is why they are called surprises. Some will be good; some less than good, and so many variables we can not account for.

                    I am guessing, as I have been repeatedly asked, that mine will arrive at my courtesy dealer in Oregon on Valentine’s Day. It is as good a guess as any.

                      That is only true is one is talking about constrained items. Ergo, the most options you are selecting, the greater the chance that one would be constrained — holding up the order.

                      However and this is a critical difference that all need to consider, that say that there are 40 available total options, four of which are constrained. And further that your order by a great stroke of luck has 30 total options but that none of the four is a constrained one, and my order has only five options (again none constrained), then to assume your order would go after my order with few options is completely erroneous, e.g., other than constrained options, the total number of non-constrained items has zero to do with order acceptance/production.
