That's wonderful.

Now for those of us who speak English, WTF is 3800?

Probably some factory status code...

Thanks,

:D

65100323 was the first retail order produced.
65100198 was the first of the regular production units built.
Anything earlier than this was a validation build.

What is the difference between
First Retail Order
&
First Regular Production Unit.
Regular production is where production is being done with fully approved release parts, with the final approved engineering changes. The first few vehicles are orders generated by Detroit to 'train' the workers and the supply chain on an acceleration. The assembly process works on the first units and gets better at what they do and after a pre-planned number, the retail order (one placed by a real live customer) comes down the line.

The number of so-called SORP, or Start Of Regular Production, units vary by plant, volume and launch difficulty.

The VINs 651000EX throgh what ever number they built are non-saleable prototypes.

The VINs 65100000-65100197 are some form of validation builds the early ones here are non-saleable, some of the later ones can be retrofitted and sold to dealers as company owned used cars. These validation builds may have some non-approved parts - a hatch opening gas tube at too high/too low a pressure, and has to get fixed maybe. Perhaps a seat cover stitch is off location, or the leather bunches in an unattractive fashion. These are the engineering workhorses that everyone is seeing in Michigan, that the press have been driving to get the magazines ready, and that Zippy got to move 5 feet at the corral.

So in order to make the process in a step-by-step, with disposition:

1: Prototype - Crusher
2: Validation Build - Crusher
3: Validation Build - Crusher/Media/Dealer
4: SORP - Car Shows/Media/Dealer
5: Retail Order - Dealer/Customer

This can change at any time without notice. Standard Disclaimer applies.

Thanks again, Mr Jdogg for your usual informative and accurate info! :cheers:

BTW, a V-city yellow Z06 pulled in to the Corvette Corral yesterday at Road America. It will be on display in the Corral and was driven by the production launch manager from BG.
