    Does anyone have an idea if there is truth to a hold up due to a Laguna leather hide shortage? My Hellcat has been D1 and was scheduled for build on 12/16, but has not started being built yet. It had an ETA to dealer of 1/22, but I see that being far fetched at this point. I was hearing that it could be a Laguna leather shortage...anyone have any insight?

    I have seen the Laguna leather in Hellcats for sale on eBay. If there was a shortage your dealer should have contacted you to change the build. However, everything about the hellcat status is a mystery.

    Early on there were supply issues, but that was fixed. Haven't heard of any new issues. Mine was built around 12/16 and it has Laguna

    Same, and mine was built late November with laguna. Although who knows, they may be having a tough time now corralling all those Lagunas.... they are probably in hiding along with all the satin black paint...

    Mine has Black Laguna and was delivered on 12/26/14. No QC issues as far as I can see.

    I'm not sure, which is why I asked....I had heard it through grapevine so I was inquiring to see if anyone else had heard the same.

    My December allocation was skipped because of options (supposedly) and Laguna was my hold up in the beginning. No VIN, no build date, no Laguna. Who knows, only 6 freaking options on this car and they have had problems with over half of them

    i have no idea...my dealer tried telling me the car was worth more because it was an early production #...so i asked RS and it was like 1100-1200something.....i guess to the dealer that makes it early....to me early is 100

    He must have just got it in when you found it. I remember you said that. Mine would have been in by Christmas if I dropped the hood.

    back to the cows, seems like they come out in batches, then you don't see them for a while.

    Being D1...does that mean the car is actually getting built currently, or is just scheduled?

    on the schedule. Status code will change to something else once it is on the assembly line.
