    Alright it's going to be a fun addition for me, let's keep count of how many are coming and your specs.

    This is mine 2LT, Black, High wing Black Interior, Yellow Accents

    Deposit sent and based upon allocation (as of today--dealer is getting 287 units Jan-Mar/Apr next year) looks like March delivery.

    Orange, very little carbon, orange belts, red engine cover, the skinny spoke wheels(don't know the name). Looking at mid-Feb, but the dealer said they usually slip a few weeks. I told him I'd wait until April, after that I'm getting something else. Must be orange.

    Not sure of color yet. Have a deposit on an early Convertible. Plenty of time to choose but I really want a red interior. Never had one.

    This is ceramic gray metallic

    Um. If I read this right, the removable top is on all models. I don't think they refer to it as a 'convertible'.

    I read someplace that all of the 2020 allocation are reserved. No more orders for 2020.

    They all have Targas. Convertibles are coming about 2 months later

    Depends on the dealer. I don't think even Chevy has figured out how many they are going to make next year yet.

    And I'm sure maybe 20-30% of 2020 allocations are dealer orders they will sell off the showroom floor with high mark ups. Chevy dealers (unlike Ferrari) can sell a car to anyone in the USA. The only thing they cannot do is sell for export.

    Fake news. Call one of the top 3 dealers in US (Kerbeck, McMulkin, etc) and you will get one before summer.

    Chevy will make probably 35-38K units in 2020.

    I like the all black with trace of yellow. Well done! I would do that too but too hot for me.

    I have not ordered yet but will do so soon from one of the big east coast dealers I have bought from two of them before with great luck ... I will probably do a museum delivery I did it in 2006 and it was a nice experience....

    I'm doing museum too heading to colorado then Cali. A March/April delivery would be fine considering the weather.

    Could be . I talked to our local dealer and he was given 19 allocations and they were gone in the 1st week.

    I saw this on the Corvette Forum so I would take it with a grain of salt, but somebody said Kerbeck has over 1,200 deposit already...

    Many smaller dealer may have 'sold out' of their allocations (even though they can't technically order them yet as pricing is not out until Aug15th).

    Kerbeck has over 1600 allocations for 2020 FYI.

    Net/net it's going to be a hot car no two ways about it, but you can get one if you want one.

    You might want to take a look at Blade Silver. It's apparently a new color. Seems to look better in the wild than it did inside at the reveal.

    true it is ...a few years back I tried to order a new corvette through my local dealer he told me no more allocations and I think it was in late April .. so anyway I called Kerbeck and they said no problem in addition I wanted a special color combination which was a color override... so I ordered the car and got it IN 4 Weeks from Kerbeck ....so the big guys can get all the cars they want....they told me they got daily direct shipments
