Thinking about placing my order for a Sky RL on Friday... is it still too late? My dealership really 'doesn't know' if i'll get it this year... they say they have 7 Sky's & 7 red line's in front of me for a total of 14..

:confused:

ouch! number 7 huh. I am number 4 at one dealership and number 5 at another and I am hoping for end of 06 or early 07. Really depends on the size of your dealership though and how many allocations they get.

I have heard rumors that they will be stepping up production & if they do, people will be receiving there units quicker than expected.

Stepping up production at this point would be rather small -- They are making Sols, GXP, RedLine and Base SKY on the same line.... 24/7 -- Other than physically moving faster how much can they increase. Now, perhaps as Solstice reaches the end of its model year build it will fall off - but, Wait 2007 Sols are now being sold and built.
Other than opening another line I don't know how much faster they can build these.
Oh and BTW you want the one built the fastest?

Best thing to do is find another dealer with a lower priority slot.

Anybody think it's possible, if the Sky is selling better than the Solstice, that they'll start producing more Sky's and fewer Solstice's?

You guys are all lucky....my prelim order and deposit was made 6/7 and I am # 20 on the RL list and ~40 above me on the base Sky list. This sounds REALLY bad, but to give it some perspective, Saturn of Southeast Wisconsin (Milwaukee metro area) is actually 4 dealer locations under the same ownership so they order all cars together as one (Sky, Vue, Ion, Aura, etc...).

Even at #20 on the RL list (over 4 locations), my salesguy is optimistic for December for mine.
