Here is the update for 1/21/2017

Regal Peacock Manual - 0 Automatic - 1
Orange Blast Manual - 4 Automatic - 2
Silver Ice Manual - 0 Automatic - 1
Red Hot 2 Manual - 1 Automatic - 1
Phantom Black Manual - 7 Automatic - 12
Heron White Manual - 6 Automatic - 6
Slipstream Blue Manual - 5 Automatic - 0
Nightfall Gray Manual - 3 Automatic - 6

That means we are down to a total of 54 right now. There is even one brave dealership that has thrown a January Super Bonus Tag on a 2017 SS! The cars are now in OH, PA, NY, TN, NC, NJ, DE, MA, CT, VA & CA. It seems like quite a few are arriving at ports, and they are getting them transported out. I suspect that by the end of February, they will be available for sale in all 50 states.

It is curious to note that even though there are still brand new Phantom Black 2015 & 2016 SS's with automatic transmission, that remain unsold, that is the most ordered combo so far. It is also interesting to note that early production of the new colors, Orange Blast & Nightfall Gray, seems very strong. I suspect that these colors won't be all that rare for 2017. There is still only 1 Regal Peacock SS in the country, and my bet is that will be the rare and desirable color for 2017. If you are considering trying to order a 2017 SS, you're time is almost up. It looks like next week may be the final ordering cycle. If you miss that, you have to hope to find what you want in some dealer's inventory. The end is drawing near.

The Super Bonus Tags for January are $2,000 Off. The mark-up on the SS isn't significant for a $50K car. You aren't going to do much better than the Bonus Tag without being a GM Employee, or getting a Supplier Discount Code. I am very confident that the 16% off or more of MSRP discounts are a thing of the past. Those who bought new 2015 & 2016 SS's were the ones who got the awesome deals. Heck, the last 4 SS's that we sold new, were sold for less than I paid for my G8 GXP in 2009! That won't happen again.

GM has announced a limited amount of Bonus Tags for February 2017, that can be placed on an SS by a dealership that chooses to. The Bonus Tag for 2017s is $1,500. Once these tags get assigned and reported, I will note them in my report.

Here is the update for 2/2/2017

Regal Peacock Manual - 0 Automatic - 1
Orange Blast Manual - 12 Automatic - 11
Silver Ice Manual - 6 Automatic - 7
Red Hot 2 Manual - 7 Automatic - 12
Phantom Black Manual - 19 Automatic - 51
Heron White Manual - 10 Automatic - 35
Slipstream Blue Manual - 9 Automatic - 12
Nightfall Gray Manual - 10 Automatic - 33

That means we are up to a total of 235 right now. The cars are now in OH, PA, NY, TN, NC, NJ, DE, MA, CT, VA, MD, MI, OR, WA, GA, IN, NV, FL, AL, SC, MS, WV, KY, LA & CA. It seems like quite a few are arriving at ports, and they are getting them transported out. I suspect that by the end of February, they will be available for sale in all 50 states. We are half way there now.

February is cold, dark and short. Historically it is the lowest volume month of the year for auto sales. These cars are multiplying on dealer lots daily, sitting there under snow and ice, depreciating. If I were in the market, I have no doubt I could get one for a good bit under invoice on 2/28, if not sooner.

You are absolutely right about February being a slow sales month, expecially up here in the Upper Midwest. Maybe that's why they haven't shipped any SS's up here to the frozen north yet. They all seem further east, south & west. There are less than 300 of them nationwide right now, so they aren't exactly gathering much dust. Plus, either last week or next week (can't remember which) is the last time a dealership can place an order for a 2017 SS. I like your optimism, but with spring approaching soon, I don't think a lot of dealerships will be desperate to reduce their profit on a car that will likely have more demand than previous years. The cars that have the GM Super Bonus Tags or Bonus Tags will likely be the way to go if you want to buy one below Invoice. If you are lucky enough to be able to get Supplier or Employee Pricing code, you will also do fine. I guess the accuracy of your statement is based on what your definition of "a good bit under invoice" is. Time will tell.

Never underestimate the desperation of a low margin, high volume dealer in a large, competitive marketplace.
