    I wonder how many "Norwegian Troll's" you can buy for the same $?, no more than 5... :p

    It's just as well, IMHO Norway dodged an Epic disaster when the Volvo Deal didn't go through...

    Here's an update on C8 progress from the midenginecorvetteforum:

    C8 Current & Upcoming Processes: What’s Happening This Coming Week and Afterwards
    https://www.midenginecorvetteforum.com/forum/me-discussion-photos-videos/93184-c8-current-upcoming-processes-what’s-happening-this-coming-week-and-afterwards

    What is currently happening? The following is our best collective learning as to what is happening now, and what is coming next. As none of these are official GM released dates, lots of tea leaves have had to be sorted to get to these probable but not confirmed timeframes:

    Week of December 2nd:

    *Finishing up of BGA employee skill level four mastery training.

    *Completion of physical changes within the Plant necessary for exclusive C8 production.

    *Announcement of constraints for December consensus. There will be some very good news here, but do not expect “the floodgates to be totally locked open.”

    Week of December 9th:

    *Full scale assembly of 350+ captured test fleet vehicles commences.

    * Dealers are advised as to the specific number of their December 19th allocations.

    Week of December 16th: (New / updated info).

    *1st December consensus is Thursday the 12th

    Weeks of December 23rd & 30th:

    *BGA closed for annual two week Christmas/New Year’s vacation.

    Entire Month of January:

    *Progressively faster ramp up assembly line speed. We do not know those exact rates. However, they will echo the ever-increasing rate that occurred during the first few months of the C7’s production. While we know that there was progressively faster assembly line speed that occurred during December, probably first at 1 C8 per hour, then 2 per hour, during January we are probably getting to a rate of at least four per hour — and perhaps faster??? As to when the line reaches its designed C8 final rate of 11.6/units per hour, that is currently unknown to us, and is probably also unknown to GM at this time.

    Week of January 13th:

    *First January coupe consensus.

    Week of January 20th:

    *First HTC consensus; it will be integrated with regular (2nd) coupe consensus (e.g., one combined allocation for both models).

    Week of February 2nd:

    *C8 coupe customer production starts. HOORAY!

    *Could the assembly rate ramp up process still be ongoing or might the full production rate been achieved by then???

    Looking Further Out, We Expect These Milestones:

    *During February and maybe into early March, an up to four week quality control hold (QCH) of the first batch of C8 customer cars.

    *During late March, again an estimated time period, the start of customer HTC assembly.

    * First customer HTC’s ship probably in April (for they too will have a QCH)."

    Much discussion there, and here:
