2010 Corvette Production Constraints

2010 Corvette Production Constraints

The first list of order constraints on the 2010 Corvette are out and we are pleased to see that there are no major options constrained for the new Grand Sport models other than the expected delay of the Z15 Heritage package. It’s normal for the factory to limit some of the new options as production ramps up and for the most part that is what we are seeing. The allocation groups for 2010 have changed slightly as well so that all Corvettes except the ZR1 are in one group and the ZR1 is by itself in another.

Vette Group (Coupe, Convertible, GS Coupe, GS Convertible, Z06)

  • 70U Torch Red Exterior – limited to 54 available
  • US8 Audio System – Single CD with 12 months XM – 22 available
  • Z15 Grand Sport Heritage Package – 0 Available

ZR1 Group

  • 70U Torch Red Exterior – 12 available
  • 10U Artic White Exterior – 3 available
  • 89U Crystal Red Exterior – 3 available

In regards to the Grand Sport Heritage Package, the Z15 option includes two-tone leather seats, Grand Sport logo seat headrest embroidery and dealer-installed fender stripe hash marks. GM told us at the NCM’s C5/C6 Birthday Bash that this package probably wouldn’t be available until sometime in the Fall of 2009. We do understand that the Hash Marks will be available through dealers as part of the Corvette Genuine Accessories catalog.

Although 2010 Corvette pricing hasn’t been made public yet (expect another 2 weeks or so), dealers can and are taking 2010 Corvette orders. If you are interested in ordering a 2010 Corvette including the new Grand Sport, get in line now by calling Kerbeck Corvette’s Dave Salvatore today at 877-537-2325 or visit Kerbeck Corvette online. Make sure you tell them CorvetteBlogger sent you!

Assembly Plant Schedule

Finally, here is the latest schedule of operations for the Bowling Green Assembly Plant through the end of August. The schedule is subject to change based on GM’s ongoing restructuring:

June: Closed the weeks of June 1, June 8 and June 29. Open the weeks of June 15, June 22.
July:  Closed the weeks of July 6, July 13. Open the weeks of July 20, July 27.
August: Closed the weeks of August 3, August 10. Open the weeks of August 17, August 23.

The model year change over is expected around the end of July, however, new production could be postponed should GM go into bankruptcy proceedings this summer. We’ll know more about that process in the coming weeks as well.
