looks like they already built 6,200 dealer and rental cars - i wonder if they are going to produce all the sold orders now??

mmarcum 05-01-2009 02:48 PM

Does that mean that out of 7,814 made, only 614 were for preorders?

VenomZ302 05-01-2009 02:49 PM

Do we know how many pre-order cars need to get produced, total, from this point on? I'd be seriously interested in that number.

yes. quite sad and annoying isnt it? they better be making sold-order cars now:paddle::paddle::mad0260::mad0260::paddle:

Wow if thats the case then preorders were robbed, i hope they solely do the pre orders now.
Kinda makes sense. Now they can just focus on the sold orders!

20 Camaro 10 05-01-2009 02:54 PM

i would be happy if my car would move from 1100.

i know what ya mean....:mad0260:, i was #9 at my dealer, and mine went to 3000 on 4/20, he said he has only 2 others that have been pulled.... hopefully it won't be long :popcorn:

BL202 05-01-2009 03:03 PM

Knowing the way GM has been doing things, instead of doing the pre orders they will now start just doing all of the dealer lot cars....Just a prediction :paddle:

the wait is getting tough ...

If this is true it explains quite a bit I guess ...

I am venturing to guess they will continue to produce more sellable cars for dealers than they build preorders. They know we want our cars, they want more available to the masses.

Although us enthusiasts are a factor, fact remains we are a small factor in the survival of GM. They need to sell a lot more than 15,000 pre orders. It just makes sense for them to build more for the lots.

TJ91 05-01-2009 03:10 PM

its a sad thing but i think you guys are right, would be nice for them to solely build Preorders until theyre done

JJ2010 05-01-2009 03:15 PM

GM this is a sad situation....

You expect your most loyal customers to stick with you when you do them like this..

I can buy a Camaro off of lots everywhere and can't get mine...

The guys that did get built the first week are in QC still...

Wingnut 05-01-2009 03:16 PM

Man, you guys sure rush to kill any good news. The daily production orders are fantastic. They ARE producing the pre-orders along with the dealer show-room cars. Many pre-orders are getting their cars, our production codes are moving along and all the pre-order cars will be built by ealry this summer. In order to keep the production line moving when contraints come up, they're building other cars.......that's reasonable and expected. Calm down, you've waited this long and we are all weeks away from getting this awesome car.

Wingnut 05-01-2009 03:20 PM

You can buy cars off lots because of idiots who pre-ordered and have cancelled because they could wait and there are those unfortunate few that have lost jobs since their pre-order. People cancelling orders doesn't speed up the process for the rest of us, it simply gives the dealer a car to sell. Not GM's fault.

2010SSRS 05-01-2009 03:20 PM

if that's true, and only 600 and change were from the pre-order pile............i'm speechless!

almost makes you wanna cancel your order............

Did you NOT see all the SS's that have been delivered??? Dealer cars are NOT SS's. My dealer has teh 1st allocation showing up this weekend, the 2nd next week and mine is on the line now. You all knew the dealers were getting a car to show off. Relax.....

Wrong, many of us have been at 3000 or 3300 for weeks. Our TPW has passed weeks ago.

Early summer? I doubt that , pre order allotments were through third quarter. If those orders are spread out, I suspect that means there will still be preorders not built yet in September. Many of those orders will be canceled when buyers are finally able to buy the car they want off the lot rather than wait on their order.

HA! a handful from 8k members...certainly 50% of us have cars on order.

I'm 'optimistic' that next week we'll see the floodgates open as GM is going for a 'big bang'...

Wingnut 05-01-2009 03:37 PM

SO.........since we were all told that the pre-order cars would be made between now and the 4th quarter, why the rage 6 weeks after production started?
Cars that show up on lots that you can buy before you get the pre-order are simply cancelled orders.
If you read any other threads, totally believing production codes would be naive.

[QUOTE=themossman;449754]HA! a handful from 8k members...certainly 50% of us have cars on order.

I'm not talking about actual member deliveries......it's the pics of cars being shipped. The percentage of people on this site makes up such a small number of the people that pre-ordered. I've already seen a sold Camaro on the streets of San Antonio and it's nowhere on any of the info in this site.

I would think 50% would be kind of high. Probably a lot more enthusiasts on the site like myself than people who have actually pre-ordered.

I'm holding out for a vert in 18 months or so, hopefully.
