This is my experience, to date, on purchase of a 2007 Corvette Coupe.
Initial contact was via email.
Second contact – to set a date & time for test drives – via email.
Arrived at dealer & test drove 2 – with the different suspension options I was deciding between.
Discounted price = too high at that time.
Me: “Thanks – I will be in touch when you can discount a 2007 by substantially more.”
This was before the first 2007s had arrived at dealers. . .
Various intervening email updates on availability and evolving discounts.
Email 8 days ago had the discount I had targeted. For an “in-stock” unit.
I responded via email asking what the discount would be on an ordered 2007 at this time, as none in stock or inbound met my specifications.
Although initially, the answer was $500 less discount – when I was non-commital, and drove to the dealership, the final discount was actually the same as quoted for an in stock unit.
So – I am waiting for it to be built. Expected delivery in approx 6 weeks from signing the order – 5 weeks from today.
Since I needed to test drive the cars ( I had never driven a current model Corvette, and needed to test the new 6 speed automatic’s paddle shift as well as various individual aspects of how I fit in a much lower car than the last several sedans I’ve driven, etc. – as well as compare the suspensions ) I needed to visit the dealer for that stage.
Since I wanted a highly specific set of options – and specifically did not want the Z51 performance suspension that they order on 95+% of their units for stock – I needed to sign the order and leave a deposit. They would not want one equipped like mine for their inventory.
Counting the weeks and the days . . .
