    Ok, I'm stunned...

    I went into my local dealership, and decided to order a Hellcat. Mind you I thought sure it would be 2016 from this forum... Found out they had 3 other Hellcats in front of me ordered... some as old as last Sept.

    I placed an order for a fully optioned Sublime on March 19, 2015... minus black hood, as they were on hold at the time... Got the call late last week MY car was built and had showed up... mind you they had NO for stock orders in the system, only the customer orders, and none of those were in sublime, one white, one red, and one black.

    SO I went in to see her (picking her up tomorrow) and asked HOW this came about... they said they only speculate that its because I'm a 2014 Dodge Viper owner as well...

    That OR sublime orders are indeed being taken to the top of the delivery schedule due to the color going out of production...

    Good luck all with cars on order... I have NO idea why mine made it through so fast...

    congratulations on the new ride, very quick turnaround. You may ruffle a few feathers with the 9/9 crowd though with that story!!

    Congrats on your new car! I think your story is going to ratchet up the frustration level just a little more with other members here that are still waiting. I agree, your 2014 Viper purchase likely did have a lot to do with your good fortune! Enjoy!!

    Congrats on your new 'Cat! If you don't mind me asking, automatic or manual? That may have made a difference on how you got it so fast.

    How did you place an order on 3/19 when ordering closed on 3/10?

    Doubt being a Viper owner has anything to do with it.

    I know there is at least 1 or 2 Viper owners who use this forum that are still waiting on their Hellcat's

    The question that will tell all is if this is a 6 speed car or A8? If this is a 6 speed I can see how the build happened so fast.

    Must have been a order someone backed out on. No damn way they can do one in 60 days.

    Totally agree, being a Viper owner had zero to do with it. There is a couple in Texas who own about 65 Vipers (Roanoke customers) who are still waiting. Would also bet it's a 6 speed.

    The car could of already had a VON and the orginal customer decided to back out. As long as a car is in VON you can make any changes you want.
