    Default 2019 Corvette ZR1 Takes the Automotive Media World by Storm!

    Now that the 2019 Corvette ZR1 is reaching the hands of owners, Chevy dealers and automotive media, the accolades are pouring in for Chevrolet's all new King of the Hill Corvette.

    Over the last month, as customers have taken possession of their ZR1 Corvettes, many owners have already strapped them to a dynamometer and taken them to the drag strip. The results? Anything but disappointing!

    Keep in mind, GM's officially reported numbers for the ZR1 are as follows:

    Default 2019 ZR1 production wait time.

    Ordered 2019 ZR1 in November, 2017...and the order was accepted by GM. Since then, not much movement up the code numbers. Currently at Code 3000 as of January 16th. Any idea when I might expect my ZR1 to actually be produced and delivered?

    I'm curious - who told you that your order was at 3000? What dealership did you order the car from?

    I'm looking at your order in GM's system and:

    Current as of 06/13/2018 - 12:14 PM EDT

    Current Event: 1100


    1100 – Preliminary Order: As soon as your order is placed with GM, the status code is automatically set to this number.

    For reference:

    2000 – Accepted by GM: At this status, GM has accepted your order.
    3000 – Accepted by Production Control: Your Corvette order has now been accepted for production. A TPW (target production week) date may or may not be scheduled at this time.

    Is this long of a wait normal for the ZR1? What is the production pace at the factory? This is #13 for me, and previously, the longest wait time was 2 to 3 months. I surprised the code has not advanced beyond 1100.

    What are other ZR1 customers experiencing in order wait time? For me, it's 8 months and counting.

    They're definitely not waiting 8+ months for GM to accept their order.

    My guess is that your dealership has very little allocation given by GM.

    My dealer showed be a print out indicating the progression of the order. It states 3000 was reached on January 16th. Dealer is checking again.
