Z Standing Orders and release method will continue as-is through May 2020.
Z Pre-Orders placed to-date and through December ’19 are not affected by this coming change.
Z product will continue to release every month after May 2020, they will just be pre-ordered versus being offered ‘sight-unseen’.
The first pre-order will be taken in January ’20 for Z product releasing in June and July 2020.
Target release dates will be subject to change.
Pre-Orders that come in too low may be cancelled.
Z Weathered cars will not be Pre-Ordered. They will be offered the same way they are currently.
