    Dealer orders for the much-hyped Hellcat recently started, but Dodge boss Tim Kuniskis has put some special caveats in place to ensure that the Hellcat makes it to the road quickly. The initial allocation is based on the number of Dodge products that a showroom has sold in the last 180 days, and a second allotment in December is based on the last 90 days of sales and 30-day turnover. "You sell a lot of Darts for me, Journeys for me, Durangos for me, I'm going to give you the rights to this one, too, because this is a halo of the brand," said Kuniskis to Automotive News.

    I also read that for any dealerships marking up over the MSRP that if they don't sell quick enough they lose allocation for hellcats to sell overtime.

    whats sad is they cant build whats ordered now or with the options THEY just offered a few weeks ago... people just now walking into dealers are getting VINS and their cars being built while many "DODGE customers" who have had $$ down for months sit and wait with no VIN

    I agree. My dealer must not have sold enough econo-rods...so after all this time, no word on my Hellcat even though they have a down payment that would have bought a Dart. Holy poor experience.

    Also that dealership doesn't sound like they helped at all. If you deposited a while back they should at least given a POC by mid September.

    Poor Abe, maybe your dealership does not have an allocation or maybe the queue has not gotten to yours yet

    I can sympathize. I waited 7 months for my '09 SRT order to be built (waited through the bankruptcy, not knowing if Chrysler would even survive, let alone see my deposit or Challenger). I gave my dealer (same as for my '09) my deposit back in July and I'm still sitting with just a VON at BA status 99 a month after the order banks opened. Kind of discouraging. :oops:

    Wow! I cannot imagine the nail biting going on while waiting during the bankruptcy. At least this time you don't have to worry if you are going to get it, it is just a matter of WHEN you are going to get it!;)

    True. Funny part is I said the '09 SRT would be in my garage until they put my ashes in it and my kids inherited "Josie". The payments on the '09 would have been through this December..... I was kind of looking forward to that! Then the Hellcat came along...... I "was" going to get a RAM 1500 next spring, but that's all changed now. :oops: Guess I'll keep driving the Caravan during the winters.

    It wasn't an easy row to hoe, for sure. This one is becoming eerily similar...... :(
