Any news on production / release dates?

Hello All ... has anyone heard/learned anything new about the 1LE production and/or release dates?

Still in constraint?
Supplier issue/s? Which part/s?
Release date (published)?
Anything else?

Warmly,
CRT ....

That's strange. You should check with your dealer - he may be the hold up. I placed my order on Sept 1 and I have a TPW of 10/22.

I also have a 1le on order. Black,2ss,dual mode exhaust..... TPW of 10-22-12. Have you ever gotten any credible info from gm on how many 1le cars there gonna make? When I show my buddies a list of what you get for 3500.00 they can,t believe it! You know thats alot of stuff on that list and some of it aint cheap. I passed on the rs option because it seemed like the only good thing I was gonna get for 1350.00 was the halo,s {which I like a lot but 1350.00?}. The color matched roof ditch and antenna is a mute point on a black car and the 1le option puts the black 20",s on. I and my friends think the price for the package is out of step with the pricing of other extras. The sales manager at my dealership told me that the first release was only gonna be 15 units. I realize sales people can be like lawyers .....If their lips are moving they are lying. Please pass on anything you know about production number estimates. I gave up a 55 belair and a elcamino to order this thing...

It isn't a limited edition, so I don't believe there will be a set number of 1LE's built. Mine is (luckily) in the 10/15 build week.

Yes, your salesman is lying. That's quite a sacrifice for your trade, but it should be well worth it, unless your Belair corners over 1G.

Was your salesman referring to initial release as in they have enough parts to build 15 while waiting for more parts? Or did he mean limited production run? It is supposed to be an unlimited production run since its an option but may be limited right now by parts availability.

I could see there only being 15 built in Oct while the supply chain catches up. And I would not be surprised if GM grossly under estimated the number of requests and doesn't have enough parts since many are shared with the ZL1 (and I'm sure the ~$60k ZL takes priority over the $3500 option)

No my pic is not the tracking pic, it's the build pic. My dealer told me when they ordered mine that there were only 103 1le's allocated across the country for the first batch. Not sure how true that was but I went to school with my salesman and he's a pretty good friend, needless to say I ordered my 2ss 1le with the dual mode exhaust as soon as I could.

That 103 number sounds correct. It's been posted on here somewhere. After they build the first 103 they are supposed to start slowly increasing production.

When I was getting prices the 1st dealer of course had never heard of the 1le. The sales manager called GM and got some info {pricing etc.} And he was the 1st person I heard the 103 number from. Maybe he checked the forum for info......But there seems to be a lack of communication when it comes to chevy. I,m gonna keep checking the forum and I might check back in a couple weeks with the sales manager [he took my order] and see if any more info trickles down the pipe. And it still seems like the price of the package is way out of line compared to what other item or packages go for. I was told tpw of 10-22 and a couple weeks travel to the dealership. Been looking real hard at the Kenne Bell 2.8 supercharger setups. Seems like the best one out there to me.

Most of the dealerships/sales people I came in conatct with were totally ignorant of the 1le. Most argued with me, insisting I meant 1LT and that no such thing as a 1le existed. And I've chatted with three different dealerships about ordering, release dates, production dates, etc., and they all have little information or contradicting information. I will probably not order until later in the year. Hopefully by then the dealerships in my area will be smater on the 1le.

Same here, I talked to all of the area dealers and they all were clueless about the 1LE. One tried to B.S. me about the 1LE being a 'Limited Edition' with a restricted run, and they didn't know if they would be able to get an allotment for it (and they are the biggest Camaro seller here).

You can understand how they could get to it being Limited Edition, after all it is a 1 L(imited) E(dition)...

LOL, yep, I can and do understand the association. Their assumption that it came with set production numbers which would make the largest and most knowledgeable seller of Camaro's in the area's sales manager sweat the allotment had me scratching my head. So I called b.s. on it.

I had the same issue when i went to the dealer a week after you could order a 1LE. They thought i meant the ZL1... Finally they got curious enough after i held my ground for like 15 minutes (basically explaining everything that came with the package to 3 salesman) and they went on the computer. They built an SS and saw the (SS performance package...$ 3500) with the 1LE code. Then they were all on board telling me "they could get it no problem 6 to 8 weeks" blah blah blah. I laughed and told them they won't be built until October.

After all that they brought me into the sales managers office. He built the car on his computer with everything I wanted (1SS, RS, 1LE, NPP, ashen grey). He printed off the sheet, showed me MSRP and invoice and threw me an offer of 1000 off invoice. Couldn't turn down that offer! I was so surprised that none of them knew anything about it.

Not suprising. I reccomend Marchant Chevy. I've had significant trouble with most Chevy dealers in charleston except them. No experience with Rick Hendrick. I'm ordering from Becky but Marchant is a nice small town dealer that gives great deals. I've heard you can get $92 under invoice.

Sure. BUT, one would expect reps selling a product would be juiced up and jazzed about it so much they'd know all about the models. But this isn't the case. It's too bad.

People no longer want nor need to be sold to. There is so much information on the internet that in most purchasing situations the buyer has already done the research and made his buy decision before talking to a sales rep. This is true in industries beyond Auto too.

The time we all spend in this forum is obviously evidence of this. We probably spend more time thinking about and researching this product per day than a rep does in a week.

Does anyone's "Track Your Order" site show 1LE? Mine does not.

Lookup QPPJWS in CA:
http://www.chevrolet.com/ownership/o...er.extapp.html

Only the 2SS package appears but not the 1LE package. Is this b/c Chevy hasn't officially announced a Release Date for the 1LE yet?

I was told "you can tell it's a 1LE b/c the 20" 10 spoke black wheels" are listed.

Fellow 1LE buyers ... does your "Track your order" site look the same?

Yes. Only the 20" 10 spoke black wheels are listed. No other reference to 1LE and some other options such as RS and dual mode exhaust.
