2012 Crystal Red | Cyber Grey DELAYS

As 2012 Corvette orders move forward we are still bumping into some production walls not allowing us to order what we want for our inventory or customers - CONTINUE:
(July 4th,2011)
As you may know by now the Cyber Gray and Crystal Red paint were built out early for the 2011 model year; due the Japan tragedy. GM was getting their pigment for the paint there….moving forward has been hard.

At the end of 2011 ordering we could not get the Jetstream Blue quantities we needed ( early cancellation ) Black was also not built in the requested quantities (early cancellation because of the New Carbon Flash on 2012 Cenntenial Editions) and Crystal Red and Cyber Gray also pulled at the end of the year which was not planned.

2012 Corvette orders tough to place because the 57U(Cyber) and 89U (Crystal) are two of our biggest requests.

IN FACT YOU CANNOT AS OF THIS POSTING EVEN ENTER AN ORDER FOR 2012 WITH THOSE COLORS, many parts of the Order Guide do not even reflect them. All leading up to what we did not want to hear and that is much LONGER delays on these two colors. I had a very nice couple that wanted to order a museum delivery 2012 ZR1 and we were unable to place it and they did not want to wait.

GM IS CURRENTLY via exisiting orders testing the colors in hopes they can shorten the delay and allow us to order more than just a portion of the pallet. THE CARBON FLASH BLACK METALLIC has been constrainted, mebaing it is being ordered and built in VERY Limited quantities, that is a short delay for sure as that is the feature car of 2012…Just last week we were able to get one of the 125 Carbon Flash ordered!

BOTTOM LINE OF CYBER & CRYSTAL, a lot depends on current color testing…but it is July 4th, could be Sepetmber/October before you see any stock roll in,,,maybe longer. More as this changes and know for sure when it can be ordered as free flow once again!
