My dealer finally called me instead of me bugging him (or CC) every week with news that my 6/1/05 order is in the next 4 month allocation! He gave me an email from GM that may be helpful to all those who wait and wonder:
Phase III;Second 4-month Dealer Allocation from December '05 to March '06 is based on a 50/50 formula as follows:
50% Pontiac retail car sales history for prior 12 months
50% competitive set which is based on 11 key competitors, including:
Mazda MX-5 Miata
Toyota MR2 Spyder
Honda S2000
Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder
Nissan 350Z Roadster
Ford Mustang Convertible
Mini Cooper Convertible
VW Beetle Convertible
Chrysler Crossfire Roadster
Audi TT
My dealer is ok on the first 50% but based on my rural western NY area the chances of even seeing very many of the above vehicles is remote! I guess that's why I'm #1 of 1 on the current allocation list. MAybe I'll have that car yet! This is why the dealers in the Metro areas are able to get more vehicles. They're able to sell more and the competition also sells more!
