    Spent almost all of yesterday looking around to find a Hellcat that's exactly what I want. Well I finally found one that is two states away, which isn't a problem for his sort of car. The car has been built but they aren't expecting it for another month or two. The only catch is that it already has a buyer. The dealer said they haven't had contact with the person who ordered it in a while and said its possible that he may not follow through with the purchase or drop of financially. So hopefully one of those things happen and I'll have a 2015 A8!

    Hatmaker3, can I ask how you found the car? A local dealer here in CT told me there were 7 2015 HC Chargers meeting my specs (granite, sepia leather, sunroof) to be delivered soon to dealers around the country. They were all "customer orders" so he would not provide any more information to me (dealer name) for their privacy. I too would like to contact these dealers to see if anyone has backed out? Thank you.

    He hasn't backed out yet. They said that there is a good possibility though. I'm just hoping for the best. I just called a local dealer and had him give me numbers of dealers who have incoming cars that met my standards.

    just go onto dodge.com and search the new inventory. Every car that is made, customer order or not, will end up on that site. Put in your location, and very large radius to search in and start contacting every dealer with the car that you want. It's a long shot that someone will back out but you never know.

    I've tried that, and maybe it's because I do it in my phone, but only one car shows up and the rest are R/Ts and SXTs

    Sounds like it is looking at 200 miles around your zipcode. Throw another zipcode in there from a major urban center more than 200 miles away and you should see HCs.

    yea I did 200+miles from 77002 and got over 80 hellcats on dealer lots or in transit (most on dealer lot so you know there is a markup but worth trying).....make sure you change that search radius to 200+...then it chops it off at 1000 miles. The farthest from Houston I saw was a car in Arizona
