Constraints for 2024 Corvette Stingray and Z06 Orders

Chevrolet has opened another order cycle for the 2024 Corvette Stingray and Z06, but there are several constraints that may affect these specific orders. The tentative Target Production Week (TPW) is set for 10/9. However, the ongoing strike may impact the production schedule.

Constraints seem to be increasing, as popular options are now showing up on the list. In addition to the high demand for visible carbon fiber options, constraints are also affecting the interior trim and the engine appearance package. The model year changeover could be a contributing factor, as quantities of newer items may be limited.

Notably, progress has been made with the availability of Carbon Ceramic Brakes for the Z06, as they are no longer listed as constrained.

For both the Stingray and Z06, General Motors (GM) has a tiered system for constraints. The quantities for larger and smaller dealerships have been provided for each option. Some notable constraints for both models include the carbon fiber interior trim, engine appearance package, carbon fiber engine shield, and various wheel options.

It’s important to note that these constraints only apply to new orders placed during the current cycle. If customers are unable to obtain the ZZ3 Engine Appearance Package, they can consider ordering the D3V, which is the wiring for the engine bay light. This wiring option is priced at $100, and the close-out panels can be added later.

Regarding the current production, there have been some delays and confusion regarding the transition from the 2023 model year to the 2024 models. Although the official plan was for the 2024 production to start on Monday, 2023 models were still being built as of Wednesday. It remains unclear if the production of 2024 models will proceed as planned on Friday.

Furthermore, there is a possibility of a targeted strike by the UAW against automakers, which could impact the production process. Fortunately, the Corvette Assembly Plant is not among the three GM facilities officially targeted for closure. The targeted facilities include the Romulus Powertrain facility in Michigan, the Toledo transmission facility in Ohio, and the Marion Metal Center in Indiana.

Overall, customers interested in ordering the 2024 Corvette Stingray and Z06 should be aware of the constraints that may affect their orders. Close attention should be paid to the availability of specific options and the ongoing developments related to the strike and production schedule.
