2009 ZR1 Allocation Announced!

2009 Corvette ZR1We’ve been waiting just as long as you have, with just as much anticipation if not more.  Finally this morning, GM released information about the 2009 Corvette ZR1 allocation for Dealers.

June’s 2008 Consensus represents the 2009 Model Year ZR1 allocation.  That means that dealers today find out how many ZR1′s the have been allocated for the entire 2009 model year. 

Only Certified Corvette dealers will be allocated any ZR1′s, so make sure if you’re out there looking for a dealer that might have one, that they have been Corvette certified like us at CorvetteBlog.com.

Here’s the kicker of the announcement, we still don’t know 100% how many we’ll have, just a very good estimate, and we don’t know yet when they will be produced.  We should know that in the coming weeks when we have confirmation of the total allocation.  At that point they will let dealers know when their ZR1s will be produced.

As a reminder, we are taking deposits for our ZR1 allocation now!  Many of our readers have already put down deposits in anticipation and we welcome yours as well.  Feel free to give us a call at (888) 875-0728 or by leaving a comment below, which will be kept private. 

The exact announcement verbiage from GM is found after the jump. GM:  "This is the first consensus for the 2009 ZR1.  The June 2008 consensus for the Corvette ZR1 represents the 2009 MY ZR1 allocation for each Certified Corvette dealer.  While this is a projection based on Chevrolet’s estimated production schedule this is being done to assist managing expectations in line with the limited ZR1 production.  In agreeing to accept ZR1 consensus each dealership also agrees to purchase a ZR1 Special Tool Package and to complete specific ZR1 required training.  Once final June consensus results are final, a letter will be sent to each dealer confirming the 2009 "model year" consensus results and providing anticipated ZR1 allocation periods."

    Just last week I passed five 2009 ZR1 Corvettes on Rt 33 in Marysville Ohio.

    Where was your camera!? How awesome, I was just down that way not long ago but didn’t have the luxury of checking out a bunch of ZR1′s! We can’t wait to order ours.

    Thanks for sharing!

    Trent, did the vehicles have manufacturer plates on them?? Just curious as to who was running those bad boys on the highway.
