    I just called the SRT head of sale office. I was trying to track down my Hellcat and was told by a women there that I cant track the Hellcat with my VON number. first it needs to be converted to a VIN number and my Dodge dealer would be notified when this happens. She also said the cars would go out to buyers in the order in which Dodge received them. She also said any orders placed with options unavailable at this time will be moved to a later date of production. I was also told by her that the dealers sales record have nothing to do with the way Hellcats are shipped to the Dodge Dealers. It is first come first served. So nothing is new I am still in the dark and all we can do is keep our fingers crossed.

She also said the cars would go out to buyers in the order in which Dodge received them.

    I know they are not building them in the order they were received. Tammie ordered hers on the 10th and it's already built. Several others and I ordered ours on the 9th and haven't even received a vin.

    We struggled as a group early on trying to figure out how builds were determined. We thought maybe by color or options. Still not sure we have an answer. My car was pretty much stock with just navi and 6 speed. Red and black seats, no upgrade. I don't know if that was part of the decision or not. My dealer is small so not a size issue. Wish I knew how it is determined. Sorry.o_O

    I believe it is first come first serve unless there is an unavailable option/color so some will get their cars sooner due to the way they are built.
    I know I could have had mine sooner if I dropped the satin black hood option so there will be some people that jump ahead of me.

    I also know lots of dealers ordered sunroofs the very first morning and they all got bumped out. Hundreds of cars got put ahead of them. Was told this by the SRT rep from the dealer. Seems it takes the system a few hours to process and since all orders started at once the crap really did hit the fan.
