      Here are your consensus ordering constraints thanks to Mike@Criswell. Mike will be sharing them with us here every week — critical iniformation for those of you ordering a new Corvette. Thank you Mike.

      As you can see from below, the year long “controlled allocation” ZR1 continues at it production pace of only 192 being produced each month (the constraint being the ZR1’s gorgeous hand-laid visible carbon fiber for all the car’s exterior CF), and the last few units of Admiral Blue being completed.

        Every Thursday, the start of the ordering consensus cycle, Mike Furman of Criswell Chevrolet (Mike@Criswell) provides us with the latest constraint information on ordering a new Corvette. This week it is simple, that not a single Corvette, regardless of model, options, color, etc., will be able to be ordered.

        However, as always, Mike is already working on next week’s orders. He can be reached, desk direct @: 301.212.4420. To get the best deals at Criswell, please only and directly talk with Mike Furman, especially as he is the only one there with 40 years Corvette ordering experience and thus he has detailed knowledge of Corvette specifications.

              Thank to Mike@Criswell, we have this consensus’ constraints. Bottom line is the same as last week, no allocations for any model. Is the factory “catching up” on those orders it accepted in the Spring? Probably, and probably we will see the ordering banks again open this coming Thursday.

              Shadow Gray remains “on hold” unti August 30th — the announced date when orders for that color will begin.

              Thank you Mike!

                Surprising, that no allocations again this week. We learned this from Mike Furman@Criswell Chevrolet. This is the fourth week in a row, so maybe something is going on within the Plant??? Inquiring minds want to know.

                Thank you Mike!

                    Thank you Mike Furman for today’s 2019 Corvette constraint consensus updates. Bottom line, for the 5th week in a row, GM is not accepting, at least on paper, any new 2019 orders from its dealers. However, the top forum dealers are getting a few orders picked up sub-Rosa.

                    However, as always, Mike is already working on next week’s orders. He can be reached, desk direct @: 301.212.4420.

                    As seen below, information Mike had heard earlier due to one of his customer’s wanting the BGA “build you own motor” option, we now have written confirmation that this is the very last month for that program (at least for 2019). Specifically Mike learned months ago that to get one of his ZR1 customers the build your own motor option, that customer had to choose an assembly date no later than the week of August 27th.

                    Thank you Mike for again weekly sharing this constraint update information!

                      Some have noticed the “0%” allocation for the PBC “Customer Engine Build Program.”

                      Not heard from Mike, but shared elsewhere, maybe there are some things happening within the Plant that are effecting the very-soon, Powertrain Build Center’s expansion within the Plant?

                      Why would that be? At least we know of the publicly stated info, that Cadillac’s CT6 4.2L, DOHC, 32V, “hot V,” twin turbo motors are going to be built within the PBC. Might there also be some other motors additionally being build within the Plant’s PBC, besides the continuing LT4’s and LT5’s assembly for 2019 Z06’s and ZR1’?

                      Might there be something else new going to be built within an expanded PBC center for what “future potential product”? Again, an oft-repeated, but certainly not yet confirmed rumor.

                            Wonder when the regular production resumes?
                            Looking forward to our ME arriving, hopefully late next summer.
