I am going to launch this separate from my other thread that I will use to highlight certain 2017 SS's that are nearly ready to be sold out. Here is the first of many of these to come:

If you want to buy a 2017 SS in Silver Ice with manual transmission, your time is almost up! Right now there are only 6 available anywhere in the country, and there are only 3 more that have been shipped from Australia. If you want one of these cars without a sunroof, good luck. There are none left on dealership lots, and only 1 more are coming. If you want sunroof with no spare, there is only 1 of them on dealership lots, and no more coming. If you want both sunroof & spare, there are 5 on lots, with 2 more coming.

On deck for extinction will be 2017 SS in Regal Peacock with manual transmission. Right now there are only 15 nationwide. Next up will be Nightfall Gray with manual transmission. Right now there are only 14 of them nationwide. Once they drop into the single digits, I will give more specific updates.

What? You mean they're gonna stop making them? When did this happen?

I do want to thank you for compiling this list and doing what you do. It's awesome that you do this all for the sake of being an enthusiast. I'm not sure you get enough credit for what you do.

You are all most welcome! It is certainly a passion, some might have other descriptions for it. I hope all the work encourages some folks to thank me by contacting me when they need to buy their next vehicle. That kind of gratitude is always appreciated ;-)

Update for 8/8/2017

If you want to buy a 2017 SS in Silver Ice with manual transmission, your time is almost up! Right now there are only 6 available anywhere in the country, and there are only 3 more that have been shipped from Australia. If you want one of these cars without a sunroof, good luck. There are none left on dealership lots, and only 1 more are coming. If you want sunroof with no spare, there is only 1 of them on dealership lots, and no more coming. If you want both sunroof & spare, there are 5 on lots, with 2 more coming.

If you want to buy a 2017 SS in Nightfall Gray with manual transmission, your time is coming to an end as well. Right now there are only 13 available anywhere in the country, and there are only 4 more that have been shipped from Australia. If you want one of these cars without a sunroof, I have some bad news. There are none left on dealership lots, and only 2 more are coming (both with spare). If you want sunroof with no spare, there are only 4 of them on dealership lots, and NO MORE are coming. If you want both sunroof & spare, there are 9 on lots, with 2 more coming.

If you want to buy a 2017 SS in Regal Peacock with manual transmission, you really need to act. Since this color was cancelled by GM prior to the end of production, it is the hardest color to get. Right now there are only 15 available anywhere in the country (actually 14, because the one we have is sold pending delivery), and there is only 1 more in transit. If you want one of these cars without a sunroof, good luck. There is only 1 on a dealership lot, and only 1 more coming (both have spare). If you want a sunroof with no spare, there is only 1 of them left on dealership lot, and NO MORE are coming. If you want both sunroof & spare, there are 13 on lots (12 not counting ours), and NO MORE are coming.

Next two colors "on deck" are Red Hot (22 now) and Herron White (27 now).

I decided to do a search yesterday for SS's left like I would have wanted to buy in the country (if I had won the Powerball jackpot, LOL). I prefer my cars with a manual transmission and no sunroof. Even though there were 693+ SS's nationwide, there were ONLY 19, that had manuals with no sunroof. I also prefer to have a spare tire with my cars because I like to get out and drive them. When I narrowed that field of 19 cars down to ones with spare, the search dropped to ONLY 12 nationwide. If you have specific requirements for your car, and you intend to buy a 2017 Chevrolet SS, you probably need to get the ball rolling. All of the SS's produced seem to have arrived on our shores now, and they are steadily getting out to their dealerships. I suspect that numbers will bounce along like this for a short time longer and then they will steadily drop.

I've seen orange blast and as I never really like this set of colors before, I must I'm really loving this one :)
If I had some "discretionary funds" and more space, I would've loved to have bought an Orange Blast, Manual, No Sunroof, with Spare. Since I am J F Morgan, and not J P Morgan, I will continue to enjoy what I have, LOL!

I heard a rumor of 1 more 20% deal. Any truth to that?
Ooooh, that would really push me into buying an SS. I have shopping them nationwide for the last week pretty hard. Just don't know if I could give up my '09 G8 GT in PSM with 60k miles. Or maybe just have both?:grin2:

This rumor has been circulating like wildfire since the end of the 20% Off MSRP that lasted for 8 days in March. Everyone who keeps spreading it is doing a disservice to potential buyers. I work for a Chevrolet dealership, and ONCE AGAIN, I can confirm that there is NO 20% OFF MSRP on the SS. The GM Incentives that were published today last thru 10/31/2017. Every day there are less and less 2017 SS's still available on dealership lots. If you are wanting to buy a 2017 SS, and you have specific requirements for the car (color, transmission, sunroof, and spare), your time to wait is rapidly coming to an end. If you want a manual transmission car, you might have 4-6 weeks, and they will likely all be gone (based on the pace of sales so far). Unless you are willing to try to find a decent used SS, you should act IMHO.

The numbers keep dropping!

Silver Ice Manuals are down to only 3 nationwide. 2 of those have Sunroof & Spare. 1 of those has No Sunroof & Spare.

Nightfall Gray Manuals are down to only 8 nationwide. 5 of those have Sunroof & Spare. 2 of those have Sunroof & No Spare. 1 of those has No Sunroof & Spare

Regal Peacock Manuals are down to only 9 nationwide. 8 of those have Sunroof & Spare. 1 of those has No Sunroof & No Spare.

Other numbers are dwindling for manuals too: Heron White (16), Orange Blast (17), Red Hot (21), Slipstream Blue (31) & Phantom Black (32)

As for Automatic cars, there is only 1 color that is getting on the radar, and that is Regal Peacock. There are only 23 Automatics left nationwide in that color. Next up are Silver Ice (68) & Red Hot (70).

Get 'em while you can folks, because it looks like all built 2017 SS's have now arrived at their dealerships!
