    I ordered my HC back in Oct of 2014 and got a call on Friday that my car was being built and was going to be the last car built for the 2015 year. This was per my dealer! I thought that like the rest of us I would be pushed into 2016. Not to concerned on being the last one built as I am sure there will be a lot of " the last one built " cars out there just happy to get the car this year. Phantom black with flat hood, black interior, red seat belts and at the MSRP. I have a 2013 ZL1 convertible that I plan on keeping, so this will be a great addition.

    Definitely not the last one built. Maybe one of the last Phantom black being built due to buildout being next week. Brampton will continue building 15 Hellcats until September 18th.

    I think I would rather have the first 2016 built than the last 2015. With the last 2015, you have a 1 year old used car and miss out on all the updates. What a difference a day makes, 24 little hours... At least you are getting car. Congratulations.

    I called SRT yesterday just to double check status, and my '15 phantom black is scheduled to be built next week.

    RS will most likely tell us what the last VIN built was for 2015. Unfortunately, we won't officially find out until end of Sept/early OCT at the earliest....and then we will have to see if it is even for a forum member...stay tuned;)

    Spoke to Dealer and Regional Manager this AM, No I'm not the last being built but the last the dealer will get this year. I do have a Vin #, car has been built, being shipped as we speak. RM did say that automatics still are hard to get which is what I am getting. Dealer has sold 3 out of 4 allocated and 3 were manual trans, not order, but customers wanted the car. I asked what changes were in store for 2016 and he said nothing, if they were to change anything they would up the HP which would be done by tuning not anything else. He did say that the motor was built with the option to increase HP in anticipation of a HP war with Ford and Chevy. I did ask if I re-tuned and added a smaller pulley, would that void my warranty, he smiled and said if we increase the HP at the factory then how could we void yours. Yeah I bet, I said I would hold him to that. Prices were going to increase, production was going to double. Maybe a added color but he was not sure. There is a dealer show coming up which they are going to have some new concepts, i.e. SuperBird which may or may not get into production in late 2016 and possibly a convertible. My dealer said he would keep me informed. The RM did say that there were a few HC's out there for sale, most all were manuals, but they are available. Be prepared to pay over sticker now as production will stop next week. I did get mine for MSRP as I have bought a lot of company trucks from him. Did try and negotiate but that did not work.

    Robbie, I got a VIN of FH909979 and was told I am in the last 30 of production.
    Any chance your VIN is close? I am wondering if they are going to end with a VIN of FH909999????

    Anyone else have a late number VIN?
