It sure would be nice to know how they go about deciding which dealers get their orders pulled first if that's the case. Ordering from a small dealer that was only allocated 1 initially and my geographical location compared to where they are being built has me nervous about getting it before summer.
From a Corvette blog: "For those who don't know what Consensus is, it is the report that Chevy sends to their dealers showing their estimated shipments of vehicles they can order for the following month's production period.

So what does that mean? Basically it means that dealers know now how many [cars] they have been initially allocated by GM."

I highly doubt that will be the case.
