I'm more shocked to see the 2009 Matrix on this list. A very disappointing car.

Those stats aren't meaningful really without knowing production schedules and the amount of sold orders, etc. After all, Camaro could be EASIER to get if they added a second shift for instance. Or harder yet if they didn't work Saturdays. So marketing and logistics has a huge hand in the availability. I'm happy there is a big demand for the Camaro, but that demand/supply ratio can and is somewhat manipulated.

It's understandable to keep the one shift for now because later, if demand does slack, then laying off an entire shift would not be a great move.

2013 ZL1 ragtop #5478. 1 of 54 CRT M6 'verts.

Good point. The real win is when inventories are neither too small or too large--the manufacturer has correctly estimated and tooled up for the level of demand.
