Gang shipping is cheaper than individual shipping. Most likely they are waiting for a full truck or rail car. Nice ride, what color?:)

Other possible reasons??

They may be waiting until the "official" new model introduction date....which used to be in September....

OR

They may be waiting until unsold inventory of 2011 Corvettes is substantially cleared out of the dealer network before shipping any 2012 models to prevent depressing the prices for the 2011s.

Some years ago I actually had to wait several weeks to obtain my new Chevy Silverado because GM would'nt release the paperwork due to unsold prior model year inventory. The vehicle was physically at the dealer but GM still held the MSO.

Unlikely you will see the car before September IMHO.

We did inferno orange w/ yuengling interior .



Nice color. What interior color is that?

Did you get to pick the caliper color as they state for model year 2012?
