Allocation

Looking for an allocation for a 2014 Z28 in or around Georgia. Just got a call from my dealer and they won't be getting one for the 14 model.

Good luck, most 2014 are long gone, and the ones at MSRP have to be gone for 2014.

Thanks, I was anticipating on my dealer getting one and had my deposit down since the announcement but got the bad news that they weren't getting a 14 but still might get a 15 but I'm not waiting around for 6 or 8 months for them to tell me the same thing.

All dealers knew if they where getting a 14 on 1/23. Why would they wait to call you?

The color can be changed until they pull the orders.

Thanks guys for all of the info and help. I successfully found a 14 here local in Ga. If anyone is still looking for a 2014 Z28 Jim Ellis has 3 allocations left as of Saturday 2/8. I was told they were all spoken for until the list price was released lucky for me 4 people withdrew their deposits and left 4 up for grabs also these are being sold at sticker price no mark up so if anyone is looking let me know I have the salesman info. Thanks again.

Such a limited number the first year and 1 dealer gets 4, seems goofy to me. Good to see they are offering at MSRP. Would like to see some in showrooms come spring.

So . . . I wonder what's up with earlier posts that reported about 500 2014's to be built, and no dealer receives more than one 2014 Z/28 allocation?

My dealer gave me the allocations for all the dealers in Florida. MANY are getting more than 1 2014 and even more are not getting ANY as my dealer. I am cool waiting because they are getting 2 2015's and want to see a few out there getting run hard before I pick my up.

Just wondering here, but why would Chevrolet disclose to dealers the allocation(s) of cars given to other dealers? I can understand if someone owns multiple dealerships they would know the allocation for the dealerships they own, but why would they know the allocation number given to dealerships they do not own?

So I sense you are calling BS on me..so I have cleared the number for the 14's but here is the list I was sent. For those that don't know, I have a family member that works at the dealer I buy from and he provided this to me...

I would have used your words had I meant to say that.

I politely ask questions of others so that I may learn. Especially as an entrepreneur, I have a natural curiosity about all things business. When something does not makes sense to me, I ask about it in order to learn.

No problem. But back to the question.

It is clear Chevrolet informs dealers about the allocation number given to other dealers, but why would they do that? Look at poor Don Mealy Chevrolet. They sell just as many (57) Camaros as Palm Chevrolet, yet Palm received an allocation and they did not? Worse still for Don Mealy is knowing others received more than one allocation and they received zip.

I don't get it, and I was a franchisor. I personally walked in Chevrolet's shoes. I do not understand their rationale. In my world, it just invites all types of trouble that confidentiality and silence would simply avoid.

Thanks very much. Now I see Chevrolet is shooting for transparency here because the dealer allocations are formulaic; you either made the cut as per the formula, or you didn't. And if you didn't, as a dealer you hope for production to be higher than anticipated such that if you were on the bubble, you receive an allocation. I suppose this dealer network transparency is meant to defeat cronyism and any "Good 'ol boy" favoritism in allocating hot products.

We dropped off in our Camaro sales this past year to focus more on the vette's and we didn't even get a allocation for the '14s an only 2 2015's

Interesting comment. I understand the mechanics of how the focus of a dealer sales force can be shifted, but how do you shift the focus of a prospective buyer from the Camaro to the Corvette? Obstacles such as the price difference and lack of a back seat would seem to get in the way.
