Some Interesting Changes
We received the consensus notes from GM regarding March ordering of all vehicles. Considering all of the talk of end of production and order dates for 2021 Corvette models, I expected to see some type of confirmation. There wasn’t one. Not one word mentioned regarding dates for end of model year production or our last consensus.
There was good news however! It appears that starting in April we are able to order high wing spoilers again with your vehicle! Also, the black trident wheels are no longer constrained and can be ordered as well! Museum Delivery option was increased from 45 to 55 per week so if you wanted that option it should be more readily available now.
They did ask us to remember you can order a Corvette with magnetic ride without adding Z51. I’m not sure if they are getting slowed down with Z51 package cars or what the point of that memo was? You have all been well informed of this option, am I correct?
We did not receive any changes in our allocations for March or April. We will still be ordering three this month and two next month. The two we just got in on Monday appeared just in time to hopefully increase allocations for May and June. Only time will tell as we will not know those numbers until early May. I suspect that is also when GM will officially state the end of ordering and production for this model year. It is my belief GM is holding out any official word until they see how smooth production runs the next two months.
The Camaro plant was shut down today to ensure more semi-conductor availability for other vehicles. I am hoping the transmission and frame component issues are behind us. Let’s collectively hope for increased production these next four or five months!
