Want a new Corvette Stingray? We can hardly blame you. And you'll probably want it with the Z51 Performance Package. The trouble is that if you order a a Z51-equipped Stingray now, you may have to wait as long as a year to get it.

Geared towards performance enthusiasts, the Z51 pack includes a three-mode electronic limited slip differential, larger slotted brake discs, dry-sump oil system, upgraded dampers, bigger wheels and more. But according to GM Authority, suppliers haven't been able to deliver all those components to the factory in Bowling Green, KY fast enough to fulfill all the orders on time.

Considering that a good 75 percent of Corvette orders being placed now are being specified with the Z51 package, that could mean a lot of customers are being made to wait – something which Corvette drivers are not accustomed to doing, considering all the muscle typically available at the touch of their accelerator pedals. Fortunately for Chevy and its suppliers, though, the percentage of customers likely to go for the Z51 pack and manual transmission is likely to drop once the early-adopting Corvette enthusiasts get their new Stingrays delivered.

      This will be good for the used C7 market as there will be a 75% chance of getting one.

        Japanese cars are dull and boring . Toyota has NEVER built a car that brings over sticker , NEVER built a car that is worth more today than when it was new . One thing you will never see at a classic car auction is a Japanese built car . Like I say there BUBBA ,dull and boring for dull and boring people .

          A Toyota 2000GT is worth its original price plus enough to buy a very nice house. When I sold cars for a living in the early 1990's, we got more than sticker for Supras, and Land Cruisers. And Camrys if they were that very dark green color and loaded. I'm not much of a Toyota fan but I have to give credit where it's due.

          Japanese cars are dull and boring? Sure, MOST Japanese cars are boring, but that's because MOST cars are boring, period. For every amazing American, German, or Italian car, there are tens of thousands of bland units. My first car was an '83 RX-7. Is that boring? What about a 240Z? Last gen Supra Turbo (the performance, not the styling)? As for auctions, I'm not sure where you go, but there are classic Japanese cars at US auctions. There aren't tons of them of course, just like there aren't lots of MGs or Alfas, but you'll see all kinds of stuff... Toyota FJs, Mazda RX-3s & Cosmos, Datsun 2000s & 240zs...

      Easily the most overly hyped up car of the last decade or so. The excessive coverage and non stories are getting a little tedious and tiresome.

      Why would use plastic for the start button. Why not spent couple extra buck. This makes the entire interior look cheap. Also the low resolution navigation screen does not help http://www.autoblog.com/photos/2014-chevy-c7-corvette-stingray-first-drive/#photo-716268/

        Can't agree more. GM makes this car for those who don't know any better.

      How long does the mid life crisis lasts? Chevy might be loosing a few costumers by not delivering this cars on time. I am not been serious but waiting does sucks balls.

        How many 'costumers' might Chevy be 'loosing'? Are these Halloween costumers? Acting costumers? And how loose are they? Do they fall down to their ankles? Inquiring minds want to know!

        Agree; my local dealer in California has 6 on the lot, according to the website. Hopefully the dealer isn't negligent enough to list pre-sold cars.

          If it is Win, they are all sold. They still list them though. Technically they aren't sold until the customer drives it off the lot.
