I can confirm that there are no SS Bonus Tags for January 2017. However, dealerships were granted certificates to use towards any car in their inventory. Some dealerships may choose to allocate some of those to an SS if they want to move it. I doubt that these will make the price as good as it would have been before though. I had been warning folks that they time to buy was before expiration of those Bonus Tags. I wish that I had been wrong, but it doesn't look like it. There are still 19 remaining new 2016 SS's, and I suspect that that number won't change much going forward. I will continue to monitor it though, and let everyone know.

2016 SS Availability as of 1/10/2017

Regal Peacock - 0 manual - 0 automatic
Some Like It Hot Red - 0 manual - 4 automatic
Jungle Green - 0 manual - 0 automatic
Silver Ice - 0 manual - 2 automatic
Red Hot - 0 manual - 0 automatic
Phantom Black - 1 manual - 7 automatic
Heron White - 0 manual - 4 automatic
Slipstream Blue - 0 manual - 0 automatic
Mystic Green - 0 manual - 0 automatic

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.

That means that there are now 15 SS's in the country. 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. There are a couple of these vehicles that do have Bonus Tags or Super Bonus Tags on them, but these are smaller than discounts from last year. 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.

That means that there are now 11 2016 SS's in the country. 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. GM announced today that there are going to be limited Bonus Tags available in February. If a dealership chooses to apply that to one of these few remaining SS's, it means a $5,000 discount on top of $500 Customer Cash. This isn't as generous as discounts last year, but it beats a sharp stick in the eye. If any of these cars get assigned a Bonus Tag, I will note it once they are announced.

Good info, Joe. The 20% sale certainly did what gm wanted it to do. I am a little surprised they went so fast with winter weather still hanging on for us on the northeast coast and in the Midwest but good for gm and great for the new owners!

Effective today there are $4,000 Bonus Tags available on SELECT 2016 SS's. We will know over the next couple of days if any of the remaining cars get a tag or not. I will let folks know once I know.

Reeder Chevrolet in Knoxville, TN, and it apparently has a Bonus Tag on it.
Thanks Joe!

Unfortunately, it looks like it is hail damaged. Must not be too bad, but I wasn't able to get a good idea of how extensive the damage may be.

I don't know. I was told that the price included a discount for hail damage, but they didn't know how extensive it was. I'm over it though.

And then there was officially just 1! Yes, there is now only 1 new 2016 SS's in the entire country according to the GM Vehicle Locate System. It is listed as in-stock at Dave Stanley Chevrolet in Oklahoma City, OK. I was suspicious of this, so I decided to dig a little deeper. Based on Service records, this information has been proven incorrect. As of 1/31/2017 the car was having some work done in Albuquerque, NM and had nearly 7,000 miles on it.

I guess that means that we can officially close this thread because there are NO MORE NEW 2016 CHEVROLET SS to be bought anywhere in the country.
