I carefully scrutinized Global Connect, and to be fair, there are still a VERY FEW SS's that have been built, but have not arrived at their dealerships yet. The total is 3 Manuals & 16 Automatics. Not sure why these cars haven't arrived yet. That still means that people don't have a lot of remaining options though.

Yes, very few but some. I know as I'm waiting on one of those. I knew of 2 for certain. I'm surprised it's 19 to be honest.

GM officially launched 20% off MSRP on all remaining 2017 SS's this morning. I have been saying since March that it was unlikely to return, but if it did it would be late in the year. November is pretty late! As of close of business yesterday, there appear to be 733+ 2017 SS's nationwide, with 17 more in transit to their dealerships. There were only 104 Manuals, and 629+ Automatics. I am VERY confident that this 20% off MSRP will make those manual transmission cars disappear VERY QUICKLY! It is also likely to clear out most of the automatics. If you want to buy a new 2017 SS, you better act right away.

Update for 11/4/2017

The numbers keep dropping even more quickly now with 20% off MSRP! I won't be surprised to see ALL MANUALS GONE by end of November now.

Silver Ice Manuals are down to only 1 nationwide. It has No Sunroof & Spare & is in Terryville, CT. (If not sold already)

Nightfall Gray Manuals are down to only 5 nationwide. 3 of those have Sunroof & Spare. 2 of those have Sunroof & No Spare.

Regal Peacock Manuals are down to only 5 nationwide. All 5 of those have Sunroof & Spare & 3 are in Terryville, CT. (If not sold already)

Orange Blast Manuals are down to 9 nationwide. 8 of those have Sunroof & Spare. 1 of those has Sunroof & No Spare. 1 of the Sunroof & Spare cars is in the Courtesy Transportation Program & not eligible for 20% off MSRP, or even to be sold yet.

Heron White Manuals are down to 11 nationwide. 8 of those have Sunroof & Spare. 2 of those have Sunroof & No Spare. 1 of those has No Sunroof & Spare. 1 of those has No Sunroof & No Spare

Red Hot Manuals are down to 11 nationwide. 8 of those have Sunroof & Spare. 2 of those have Sunroof & No Spare. 1 of those has No Sunroof & No Spare.

Other numbers are dwindling for manuals too: Slipstream Blue (25) & Phantom Black (20)

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 (57) & Red Hot (60).

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

What a difference a few days makes! As I expected, cars was going to fly off the lots with this 20% off Sale. As of 11/7/2017, there are only 30 New 2017 SS's left with Manual Transmission. I suspect that the number is even lower, because many of these cars are already sold awaiting delivery. Here is the scoop though:

Regal Peacock - 2 - Both with Sunroof & Spare

Orange Blast - 3 - All with Sunroof & Spare. 1 of those cars is in the Courtesy Transportation Program & not available for immediate purchase

Silver Ice - ALL GONE!!!

Red Hot - 6 - 4 with Sunroof & Spare. 2 with Sunroof & No Spare

Phantom Black - 4 - 3 with Sunroof & Spare. 1 with Sunroof & No Spare

Heron White - 2 - 1 with Sunroof & Spare. 1 with No Sunroof & No Spare

Slipstream Blue - 11 - All with Sunroof & Spare

Nightfall Gray - 2 - 1 with Sunroof & Spare. 1 with Sunroof & No Spare.

Since 57 of these cars sold in the last 7 days, I will be very surprised to see many if any of these cars left by the beginning of next week.

I suspect that the number is even lower, because many of these cars are already sold awaiting delivery. I have begun to get reports that all of the manuals that I will list below are already sold with deposits, but I can't confirm that yet. Here is the scoop though:

Regal Peacock - 1 - With Sunroof & Spare

Orange Blast - 2 - Both with Sunroof & Spare. 1 of those cars is in the Courtesy Transportation Program & not available for immediate purchase

Silver Ice - ALL GONE!!!

Red Hot - 6 - 4 with Sunroof & Spare. 2 with Sunroof & No Spare

Phantom Black - 3 - All with Sunroof & Spare

Heron White - 2 - 1 with Sunroof & Spare. 1 with No Sunroof & No Spare

Slipstream Blue - 4 - All with Sunroof & Spare

Nightfall Gray - ALL GONE!!

Since 86 of these cars sold in the last 10 days, the pattern of manuals selling out WAY before automatics that I predicted has proven true.

As for automatics, some of those are getting scarce too. Here is the rundown for the rarest ones:

Regal Peacock - 13
Silver Ice -33
Red Hot - 44
Nightfall Gray - 50

There are now less than 47 SS's nationwide remaining, so they are all nearly extinct now!

Is the 20% off still active? New car dealer listings don't seem to reflect it, and my G8 was officially declared a total loss today so NOW I'm in the market. Preferably an A6 without a sunroof.

I am very sorry to hear that your car was declared totaled. Unfortunately, the 20% off MSRP sale ended on 11/30/2017. In addition, there are now only 37 new 2017 SS's left nationwide. If you are trying to buy an SS for close to $40K, your best bet would likely be to try to find a low mileage Certified Pre-Owned one. If you want new, then there are VERY few to choose from, and you can expect to pay over $45K for one. Sorry to be the bearer of bad tidings.

Regal Peacock is officially the first color of 2017 SS to "go extinct". There are none left nationwide. Orange Blast, Red Hot & Nightfall Gray are close behind with only 2 left nationwide. There are only 37 total new ones remaining.
