    Placed my order at 12:24 on Sept 9th. Still don't have a VIN. Went by my dealership last week and got the print out on my POC. Status BX, have a VON but no VIN. Nothing special ordered. Phantom black,auto,nav,black/ruby red seats, red seat belts and P zero tires. Called SRT, no help.

    Hey Barry. I saw another post that said if the dealer only has one or two allotments and you are below that, you may not have your VIN until they start 2nd allotment in December. If you were first for dealer then I would raise some heck with your dealer to find out what's up!;)

    I was the first sold unit ordered at the dealership. I'm going to call the GM and see if he can find out something. My nephew is the service manager there, he just sent me a text saying there is a rumor that production is shutting down due to copyright infringement on the name Hellcat.

    We heard that rumor, but I haven't seen anything substantive. I do know the plant shut down this week for some prep. I was told they are just making sure all inspections are done and that the Hellcats are ready to go before they mass ship these babies out. I think checking with the GM is the best idea, they should have a VIN unless they did not get a first allotment.

    Just got off the phone with the GM. He said he called them recently and they are saying there are just more ordered than they have had a chance to build. If anyone reading this message ordered one after Sept 9th and has a VIN please let me know.

    It sounds like it. My dealer is small and only got one. He had put an order in for the lot on 9/9. I ordered on 9/10 and it was given preference over his dealer order. I got my VIN 5 days after the order. I did not have any upgrade except navi. I hope you get a VIN soon. Probably when they start up 2nd production? The dealer should know when he will get his first order. I am sending lots of good luck karma your way!:)

    Hahahahahaha, thanks for the good luck karma. I don't know if they know more and just aren't telling me or whats going on. It doesn't matter, I'm going to buy it there anyway. My nephew is the service manager there and always takes good care of me plus it is a great dealership.

    There is something to be said about a dealer that takes care of you from beginning to end. That's is what I have and why I keep coming back. I bet they are doing everything hey can. This has been frustrating for all. The results will be worth it!!:)

    Didn't order mine until 9/25. Pitch Black, 6 Speed, Nav, Black Laguna. I was told it would be quite a while so I'm not really too nervous yet. Haven't heard anything official on the Black Laguna. Probably be waiting to almost Spring.
