No one knows for sure yet. Doesn't mean I can't speculate

If everything proceeds as planned, production will start on the 16th, slowly. It will ramp up over a couple of weeks time. Some of the line operators have said they can do 500 cars per shift.

As for the overwhelming amount of SS's ordered the first few weeks... Fbodfather has said that should not be an issue, the only issue would have been if the percentage of SS cars stayed at +75% for the duration. Initially GM had figured on a 50/50 split for the first few quarters, knowing full well that early pre-orders would go in favor of the SS cars.

As far as when... we have started to compare order numbers on some of the other sites, and it looks as though the alpha numeric order numbers are going in sequence. Whether or not you get your car before someone who ordered a few days before you, is anybody's guess. Orders could go in sequence, by trim level, color, region, just no way of knowing.

I ordered a 2SS/RS on Oct. 20th, again assuming that GM's money issues don't get any worse, with my above reasoning I am guessing I will take delivery sometime in April.

Hope that helps a little

Ordered: 2SS/RS Cyber Gray w/ Black stripes - Inferno Orange Interior (Eye poppin) - Hurst short throw shifter
69 Camaro Coupe - Under re-construction
2001 Silverado Z-71
2006 Evo IX Special Edition - Selling -

I wonder if money problems could speed up delivery times? Hopefully with excellent quality control. I'm dreaming of an SSCHRISTMAS............

I ordered on OCT.13, but now my dealer is closing. He tells me the car will be built, but he does not know where it will go. My garage sounds good to me. We are trying to have it transfered to another local dealer.

X2! Any deposits made towards a Camaro order are the property of that specific dealership. It will not be refunded by GM if your dealership closes their doors before delivery. I would survey the options in getting your money back, Thumpmaster.
