Planning to order this week....When can I expect my car to be built and shipped???

Finally, I think I'm going to be able to order my Camaro this week. I got an insurance quote and stopped by the dealer I bought my truck from. I asked him if I order it now when can I expect it to be built? He said "late summer, early fall". What kind of an answer is that??? That's like a 2 month range!!! Anyone else order recently and get a more specific time frame??

that's pretty much the long and short of it... you could be as early as end of may, early june to july-september. it all depends on what you order (constrained items) your dealer's allocation...and your spot in that line, and production rate.

(just do it already)

Keep in mind this is a 2010 model, not a 2009. The only way to get one relatively soon would be to build a time machine and go back to October 13, 2008 to preorder like most on the board have done.

The preorders will be hitting the streets within the next month or two. There are an estimated 14,000 preorders to be built, plus another couple thousand demo cars for the dealers to draw people into the showroom. To expect to order it now and expect it in a couple of weeks....sorry, that ship left the dock back in October.

To order now and get a 2010 model in late summer of 2009 is not a bad deal...usually you would have to wait until mid fall when all the other 2010 models hit the streets.

nope! i've got my order sheet right in front of me...its got my status at 1100
Estimated Delivery is blank. i'm in the same boat, man- i secured (deposit) my spot on the allocation list on the 28th with my dealer. at lunch today i placed the order. its the glass half full glass half empty approach. i just bit the bullet and said i'm gonna do it. if i lose my job, then i'll deal with that when it happens. if not, i've got one badass car coming my way...eventually. if the car comes early and i get the total confidence package--sweet. if it comes later, i hope they extend it!!!

Same exact story here. I am not holding my breath though. From the looks of how they are pulling orders, who knows.

That's a lot better than the response I got! I may try a few other dealers and see what they are saying before I order from this guy.

Where'd you order from in FL that is telling you that? I'm calling shenanigans... no way you ordered that recently and get the car that soon (unless you paid a markup or something). Your order would have to be submitted to production basically now to get it then.

also, thats about 60 75 days out.... how is that not possible? Look at some of the people that ordered in OCT. Your almost at a advantage if you waited to order until right after they started production.

If you still have 6 in front of you to be pulled, there is no way you will get your car that quick!

Unless they get 6 more allocations like now, you're looking at more of a July delivery. It's about 6-8weeks from time of order placement to delivery. Order gets fully submitted on tuesdays. The third week from then is the typical TPW. But recent submitted orders have seen TPWs pushed back. Once the car is built, you're looking at another 2 weeks+ to see your dealer. So, cars being finalized today, will arrive mid may, early june. I don't know what the dealer's allocation is but I highly doubt he's getting 6 allocated this week or next week.

I'll have to try and find out what my dealers allocation is. It's a smaller dealership and not in the best of neighborhoods so I can't imagine too many people going there to order...but who know's maybe I'm wrong. Would there be a better chance of a smaller dealer with little or no preorders or allocations getting a build pulled by GM than a larger dealer?

It's pretty much a ratio problem. It's better to be 10 out of 20 than it is 4 out of 5.

My sales guy told me they had 13 customer allocations, and 6 dealer allocations (meant to be dealer floor/demo cars). He said they decided to sell 5 of the 6 dealer allocations and I got the 2nd one of those. Is this BS? I don't know. I do know that my order status is 1100 thanks to a great member of this forum tracking it for me; so i just sit back and relax and if it takes until October then it takes that long. I still will have one bad ass car when it gets here.

The longer it takes the closer I am to just paying full out cash for it too

It's all one bucket. Maybe the dealer decided to divide it up that way but GM doesn't dictate that a certain amount of their orders be lot cars or customer cars.
