I did not think I'd like the matrix gray color but I saw it on a Grand Sport model and it looked pretty darn nice. Enjoy, be sure to post some pics when you get it!

Congrats, I hope your wait is short as opposed to long.
I assume you have seen the matrix gray in person?

Oh yes, originally I saw a white vert. with blue top and blue interior at criswell , but turns out it was only found on the 17 and it cost 77k ouch. But this color is really sharp with the very fine metal flake.

I'm afraid your wait might be longer as opposed to shorter. Matrix Gray is currently not available (from today's constraint report):

Ceramic Matrix Gray w/o Carbon 65 Edition.......0% - December, plant restriction

^^^ If a constraint is on Ceramic Matrix Gray for an '18 model and the car may not be built till January......At this stage of the game I would order a '19.

I've seen the ceramic matrix gray a couple times and I think it looks awesome!
Kind of a frozen white.
Congrats

Or indefinite - I wouldn't be surprised if Ceramic Gray goes the way of Sterling Blue - discontinued after only a few months.

Probably not enough orders. I saw a CG Z06 coup at the dealer and I can see why a Vert with blue top will be awesome.

Congrats! Sounds like a beautiful color combination! I am one that is partial to the Ceramic Matrix Gray. It reminds me of a color back in 1979 (Corvette Light Blue, I believe). Anyway, it was a very light powder blue that reminds me of Ceramic Matrix Gray. Back in 1979 I saw a new Vette with this color and oyster gray interior and fell in love.

OK, now the 64k question how long do constraints last.

Nobody knows, although the note associated with that constraint said December. Frequently those estimates are too optimistic. The reality is there is no way of knowing.

me.
So it's a wait and see, game I get that. My main question is, my order is in, but will the car get built before the 19 production begins. As I understand it this color is the basis for the carbon 65 special edition and that car will not be produced in 19 model year.
