    I honestly don't think I'm ever going to see my hellcat. I just wish you don't need stupid allocations for your car to be built. Just get all the parts and build our cars so everyone can be happy. How much longer do we have to wait because this is ridiculous.

    You said you ordered on 12/9, so, grab another Snickers, Hun, because it has not been 90 days yet ... and that is the average if you ordered from a dealer that had an open allocation. Do you have a VIN yet? If not, then you need to search for a dealer than has an open allocation, or look for a Hellcat already on the lot. Sorry, but we all warned you that you were in for a wait when you first posted on the forum. Wish things were different, but alas, it is what it is.

    But what about people that ordered in September and still don't have a cat?

    As has been stated over and over again ... most of the people who placed orders in Sept and still do not have their cars fall into a couple of catagories:

    1. They ordered the satin black hood, which was held up forever, or the sunroof, which was cancelled completely

    2. They placed their order at a dealership that did not have an open allocation slot. Most placed a deposit with a dealership to get on a waiting list. For instance, the large dealership had 4 allocations, but have 30 people on the list, then obviously the first 4 people are getting their Hellcats. Then the dealership has to wait to see if or when they will get any additional allocations. If they get 3 more allocations, then the next 3 people get their orders placed. Doing the math, it is going to depend on where you are on the waiting list.

    I placed my order on 9/13/14, at a small dealership, that had 1 Hellcat allocated to them. I was the first person to place an order with them, so their 1 allocation slot was my car. The order went through with no delays, and I had my VIN number rather quickly. My car was delivered to the dealership on 12/17/14, and that is the day I signed the papers and drove it home. My dealership is small, and thus far my car is the only allocation they have been given.

    Do you have a VON (Vehicle Order Number) or do you have a VIN (Vehicle Identification Number). If you have neither, then I suspect you are on a waiting list. If you are on a waiting list, you either have to tough it out and hope that your dealership gets enough allocations to make their way through the list to get to your order, or you need to, as I suggested, look for another dealership that can fill your order, or has a Hellcat on the lot that you like and can buy outright without ordering.

    I feel for you, it is a long wait, even when you have a VIN. I hope that if you are on a waiting list that your dealership gets enough allocations.

    Did your Dealership give you an idea about how many HC's they have delivered to date? How many VIN's do they have in the system. How many VON's ahead of you?

    you need to talk to your dealer, find out where you are on the list. IF there are more than ~5-6 people in line ahead of you, then you might just need to start looking elsewhere, or at least supplement your search by looking elsewhere while you still have an order in with your current dealer.

    pay over msrp and get one now
    pick a different color and find one in stock right now for msrp

    waiting for a car that may never be built isnt a good plan........not in my opinion

    people are getting hc's every day....keep searching and you will find one

    be willing to go across the country

    In other words, take the bull by the balls and be proactive! If you persevere, you'll get your Hellcat!
