    ok here I go. I have been dreading this since Monday. my gm at dealer said that there are 12,000 hellcat orders as of the15 of oct. maney more by now he said only 2,000 to 4,000 will be built for the 2015 yeay. so many orders will be 2016 cats. he showed me my order on the dealer list. ordered in my name and von. the allocation he will receive.is 3. he has 12 cats ordered on first day of ordering and 6 cats ordered befor orders opened mine one of them none with vin yet. he showed me on computer. he said they have 18 total cats paid for on order but they will come to him as his dealership gets alocations. and it is totally a lottery type of situation . he said he has no idea when his 3 will even be picked up and given vins. and if it were today mine wouldn't be one of them. so basicly I was given no FN idea of when I might get my cat. so long story short I sat down with him and built a srt 392 and cancled my cat. put the 31,000 on srt.which I will get in 6 to 8 weeks. I guess what I am thinking is I will trade it in when dodge has its poop togeather in a couple years. I haven't had a muscel car since 1969 so this will be very special to me even know it isn't a cat.SO AM I BOOTED OR CAN I STILL USE FORM TO RECEIVE INFO ON MY SRT 392. IF NO I TOTALLY UNDERSTAND AND I THINK YOU ALL FOR THE GREAT INFO AND FAMILY TYPE INTERACTION.

    Take your hat your coat and get out!!



    Lol, JK, don't see why'd you have to leave. Congrats on the 392, nice ride. I wish the Hellcat had as many interior color options as the other challengers. I haven't seen any 392 info here :(

    Basically, I'm f**k'd. That is a bummer in the worst case.

    Thanks for the news.

    Not really. You will have a 2016 model instead of that old 2015.

    with 1000 hp

    I don't think your alone out there, I finally have come to the same conclusion that the odds of getting a Hellcat are slim to none and slim has left already! Have not decided what I am going to do about a replacement, been waiting a long time for the Challenger to modernize the interior....who knows maybe I may settle for the SRT also - it still is a great car!

    Exactly, with the money you save you can build that SRT to kick some ass!
