I actually saw this same thing at another c8 forum. I believe their source was a big dealership in the US got an email from GM.

Ill see if I can find that thread

I found the post. It says, some guy on Facebook said that he heard,

"Dealers that have large allocation numbers are going to “lose” 16-20% of their 9 month total allocation number for 2020 Model Year production!"

This doesn't mean that production will be reduced. They may simply spread the love to more dealerships than a select few.

Sounds like more "he said, she said".

I choose to not believe anything anyone says unless it came directly from GM in an official statement.

If a dealer says it, it's a rumor. If a GM exec says it, it's still just a rumor.

Why bet? All I'm saying is they people shouldn't trust hearsay.

All I care about is getting my C8 Convertible MY2020. I’m #3 at a dealer that has two 1st half allocations. Please read the tea leaves for me.

'cause it's fun to win :thumbs:
Not a problem. It's nice to stand out a bit, but not if it makes for uncomfortable reading for others.

Yeah, never trusted those two dealers in what they were projecting. I went with someone else.

You miss the point Eric...many are duped into deposits on impossibly long waiting lists @ dealers like WN & BC.
I'd be very uncomfortable with a dealer that wasn't up front w/allocation estimates.
7 months = an extremely short model year...just sayin'

I was talking about my font, but yeah, that's also a good point.

I heard from an unreliable source that the reduction will be between 13.25 to 15.75%
I also have to believe there will be a reduction for the back half. No way they can “catch up” given the strike. While they may have initially had numbers in mind the strike has to have effected these numbers. Gonna be some short run for 2020.
