    Does anybody know the projected build date / delivery date for the first go around of hellcat chargers? I dont understand how some people are posting saying they were told 4 weeks. That seems crazy fast. Or is that actually plausible? Once the car goes into D1 status how long does it takes to completely build? Or even a guesstimate?

    Just interested as I was expecting to wait months upon months but seeing some posts saying 4-6 weeks makes me wonder, but also not want to get too optimistic. Any input would be awesome :) Thanks

    If the plant is operating at full capacity and no issues, your car can be built in a day. Then the inspections and shipping are what add the additional time. So yes, its very possible for the time frame to be that short.

    I've read in other posts that Charger production starts February 2. Once a car starts down the production line, it only takes about 1 to 2 days to build. From there, it's anyone's guess for delivery. Usually a week for inspection, then sitting in a parking lot, then transport to a rail yard, then sitting in a parking lot, then a train ride to a rail yard, then sitting in a parking lot, then maybe a second train ride and more sitting, then waiting for a truck ride to the dealer. Could be weeks or longer. And no telling how far along into the build process your car would be. Don't believe any time estimate given by any dealer.

    I was told 4-6 weeks. I was hoping for April/May. I need to sell my 2012 Superbee quick.

    Remember what they tell you and having in your garage doesn't always match up.

    Charger production began Jan 12. The February 2 date is when B5 enters production.

    Once your car hits gateline, it's really quick with little hold ups (unless they have to sit in storage for a last minute flash or something out of ordinary like that).

    It takes a day to get built, few days for inspection, few days to prepare shipment is so on.

    Attached is the time frame of my old 13 SRT and keep in mind I am right by the Pacific ocean so shipping takes a while...
