Reviewing the C7 Corvette threads on the Corvette Forum, we found a very informative response to a question about ordering a new 2014 Corvette Stingray. Kerbeck Corvette’s Dave Salvatore provides a timeline for the first order consensus which began on Thursday, May 23rd.
According to Kerbeck, the first order consensus period for the 2014 Corvette Stingray began yesterday and runs over the next two weeks. Yesterday, GM provided dealers with how many cars they will get to order during the first consensus time period.
Then on Thursday, May 30th, dealers can prioritize their orders and get them picked up by GM. The orders have to be on the order bank by Saturday, June 1st, and the orders must match any and all constraints.
On Tuesday, June 4th, dealers will be allowed to make changes to the orders that got picked up as long as the changes fall within the constraints.
If your order is gets picked up by GM during that first week, you won’t see any changes to your order status until Wednesday, June 5th. If your order status is still at “1100″ on June 5th 2013, then your order did not get picked up for the first week.
For those orders that did get picked up, GM may provide the dealers with the approximate week that the cars will be built. However it’s important to remember that even under normal production times that approximate week is very flexible and could be changed many times before it stabilizes. During the launch of a whole new model timing of the new assembly line and quality control issues could make those initial dates even less likely to be accurate.
On Thursday, June 6th, the process starts all over again.
Kerbeck has not yet started taking deposits for the 2014 Corvette Stingray as Salvatore says they would have just been sitting for weeks and weeks. He says that Kerbeck will start taking deposits shortly and they will be selling the new Corvette at MSRP. You can request more information on their 2014 Corvette Information page.
