Actually, I wasn't serious. This is my response to how my original post was answered by some others on here. I was looking for some info and got some negative responses.
I wish it was true. I'm waiting for a 2 door Sport S with manual.

No problem. The reason I fell for it, besides desperately wanting it to be true, is that it was a thing once. I factory ordered a 2008 Corvette in 2007. The Canadian dollar was worth more than the US dollar (how I miss those days) and GM was not in good financial shape. Therefore, cars invoiced to Canadian dealers increased their cash flow and were prioritized. Mine ended up being built the first day of the 2008 model year production even though I was nowhere near the first ordering. I know that’s not the case now, but was hoping there were other factors at play.

I've been told that the JL orders/w the 6-spd STICK are on "Backorder" because of material restriction, till MID-MARCH !

I run the statistics based on the number of threads with the same question/s.... would shed a whole new light as to why the “smart ass” replies is growing in frequency. More of comical relief than anything.

Except Rubi.... I just like to pick on Rubi for being obnoxious with the whole 2 door/Sting gray crap with bashing FCA cause he feel disrespected.
Nathan, Nathan, Nathan; I’m so very sorry for being an evil OBNOXIOUS person. Here’s what I’m going to do for you to help you solve your problem. You need some advice; you should seriously look into seeing a psychiatrist and tell him or her your problem. Tell them, you’ll probably need two shrinks, this evil internet person is taking over my life; I’m constantly leaving posts to hopefully annoy him. Then say please, PLEASE help me.

Or better yet, to help you save some money; tell your mommy about this internet boogeyman. She will say this as she tucks you into bed; Nathan my sweet boy this Rubi boogeyman is not an evil person and means you no harm.

That’s all the advice I can give you Nathan; have a happy and sane life.

I suspect the FCA makes more money on the 4 doors; plus, they will sell many more 4 doors than 2 in this JL cycle! However, I caution you that I believe in most conspiracy theories.

I have a 2dr, manual, soft top on order. It was ordered Jan 18.
About 10 days ago I checked on the status. FCA rep told me it was waiting for parts to start the build.
Yesterday I checked again and was told all the parts were in.
That seems like a good sign.

Did you contact FCA to speak to a rep or do you know someone that is a rep? The reason I ask is that I've been trying to find a way to get info on Canadian orders from FCA. I do have dealer provided POC updates, but they are not coinciding with factory tracking. US residents can get updates from chat on their FCA website, but I can't find a chat function on the Canadian site. I'm not desperate enough yet to try phoning and going through the hold and transfer hell.

I did a chat both times. I used a link I saw on this forum. It was the main site, not Canadian.
