Numbers?

Since over 10,000 have been built, does anyone know how many have been delivered, and how many are stuck in the dreaded Quality Control!

Over 10,000 have been built, but keep in mind the cars built for the dealer's "stock", the early build promotional cars (Hendrick etc), the rental cars etc. In my opinion, reality may be that only a few thousand "sold" cars might by be done or on the way. The ramp up is evident because for the first time I have producition info from my dealer and an approximate build time frame. Mine was ordered on 10/15 from a small but a great dealer to work with and only until last week was production information given to them. I think you'll seem them start to roll out about 2500 cars a week and get through the sold pre orders by mid August.

I wonder how many of those built were V6 cars. I wish they would quit making the V6 inventory cars and focus solely on the pre-ordered cars like several of us are waiting on. I'm seeing V6 cars sitting around as inventory, obviously not pre-ordered. The only SS's I see for sale are at price gouging slimeball dealerships. MSRP V8 cars sell very quickly.

if you think about it, it makes sense that they would build some inventory cars before preorders. It sucks as a customer but GM has basically 14000 sold cars without test drives and such, and most of those people gave a deposit and they are not going to cancel. So by giving dealers stock first and getting around to orders little by little they are selling more cars, not that they would have a problem selling these anyway tho. JMO

Isn't it going to be at least 6,000 inventory, rental and show-off cars? If so it is very annoying and GM still has somewhere around 10,000 pre-orders to still build and deliver.
