Some are saying that customer order production started TODAY

Today, as we all know, was the original production start date for the car. Apprently one of the mods on LS1tech.com was told that his car was being built today, and that he would have it by March. There is a thread on cz28 around a guy who recently drove a 2SS and was told by somebody in Oshawa that production did in fact start today, and that it was questionable as to why everyone is being told production starts 3/16. Lastly, my dealer insists that production starts today, despite me telling him that people like Scott and Ed Wilburn have announced that it starts 3/16.

I just think that the above is the result of misinformation - but this is one time when I wouldn't mind being lied to.

I'm still sticking with the theory that my dealer is an idiot.

I was told the same information at a local dealership. They were under the impression that the production cars were currently being built.

I won't believe it until one of our resident experts says it is true... Until then It is all unsubstaniated rumors.. and I for one am getting tired of them.

Maybe they're just holding off on the stuff they couldn't figure out(ABL) and started production.

How exactly does Chevrolet define start of production? We are told they are making 40 cars a day now. Is it when they reach a certain production quantity a day? Is it when they have passed every legal hurdle? Is it when a certain set of managers and presidents sign off on the car? Is it the first day the cars they are making are sellable to the public? Or is it just a date for public relations that is relatively meaningless inside the plant?

Engineering changes will continue after the start of production, improvements will be made, parts will be substituted, etc. So start of production does not mean changes stop.

We can't really evaluate the likelyhood of an ordered car being made unless we know the true meaning of the start of production date announced publicly.

My theory is that there are a ton of people who simply missed that update and that's why they think production starts today.

Its actually Start of Regular production...which is the day cars start being produced with the 100001 VIN numbers. It is true they have already been producing cars but those were the test fleet.However, since the regular production got put off for one month maybe they started producing the "one V6 car for every dealer" today so they could get those knocked out before regular production starts. just a theory....nothing official.

Even that would be nice. Every car down the line brings mine closer to home!

I was at my dealer 2 weeks ago, he knows some of the people on the production team, he told me production has been pushed to March, he also told me they are doing a 60-40 split, 60% for V6, 40% for V8
