That means that there are now 18 SS's in the country. The 20% Bonus Tag on SELECT 2016 SS's expired at end of day on January 3, 2017. The 20% Bonus Tags have NOT been continued. That means that the cost of the last dozen and a half cars won't be nearly as aggressive. Some will get a $1,000 Super Bonus Tag along with $500 Customer Cash, but that isn't nearly 20% Off MSRP. Right now there is only 1 manual transmission SS left in the system, but this car is likely already sold because it doesn't show up on the dealership website. The repair parts for all the SS's seem to be rolling in, but there are still a few on Stop Sale. The best I can do for anyone now is to help them buy one of the 2 (of 3 total so far) remaining 2017s that we have accepted orders from GM for. We just sold our first 2017 SS (on paper anyway) the other day. Our Orange Burst manual built a few weeks ago, is now spoken for before it even arrives in the US, and it shipped from Australia on 12/20/2016. That leaves a Slipstream Blue Manual with Sunroof & Spare (which was just loaded on ship on 12/30/2016 for shipment), and a Nightfall Gray Manual with Sunroof & Spare still available for purchase. Since 2017 is the last year for the SS, I assume this will happen with a lot more of them. If you have been waiting for the pricing to get better, you probably already waited too long. It looks like these cars will have disappeared before dealerships have to give them away.
