    I just got off the phone with the worlds largest Dodge dealer (Dave Smith). They told me straight from SRT that Challenger numbers are limited to 3000 and Charger numbers are unlimited. Anyone else hearing this? Hopefully my order gets built.

    I was told 3700 for the build year. Everything else he has told me so far has come true. He said I was right on the bubble of getting or not getting one. They stopped taking orders after mine, said they didn't want to take peoples money and get their hopes up and not be able to get them one.

    I've seen it here, Dodge took orders for 4000 HC's in the first 4 days. When Kuniskis, CEO of Dodge/SRT was asked he said "That's not true about the 1200 units. We've never said that." He also said that the base price was purposely placed at $59,995 with the gas guzzler tax, "to put it within reach of the average performance enthusiast. I want to get as many of these cars on the road-and get as many people excited about Dodge as possible."
    Sounds like Dealer scare tactics to justify their premiums on the HC's.

    Well hopefully I get mine. I waited because I wanted the Brass Monkey wheels as part of the build sheet. Apparently that was a mistake as I finally said the hell with it and put the order in last week. I'm #2 at my dealer so fingers crossed. I also ordered Blue which hopefully hasn't started the build process yet and I'm thinking that might get mine built sooner rather than later.

    The dealer that told me 3700, he is selling all of his for MSRP so he's not just saying it to get the price up. I was 5th in line of pre orders in Aug. He got VIN's for 3 when orders opened up and one ahead of me dropped out, so that leaves me 1st out but he is telling me that I'm right on the bubble of the 3700 of getting one. He said SRT got 4700 orders and are only building 3700 for the build year. I wish Dodge would get their stories straight, Tim K says they will build all that are ordered but then were told only 3700. I guess time will tell. Dodge was taken by surprise by the number of orders placed, they should have known this car was going to sell.

    I initially placed my order 9/9 at 10:04am. I received a VON a few days later. Went back to the dealership a week ago to get a new printout of my POC (my cat decided that it looked enticing to sleep on and ended up tearing it). When I got the new page home, I noticed that the order date is now 10/1 at 1:36pm and it had a different VON (all my original options are still there: Black Laguna, Satin Hood, Nav, 8speed and price still the same). Just got back from the dealer where I asked them about it. They had no idea what happened and could see no cancellation of my previous order. I'm just hoping that since I have a VON and am in BX status that I'll actually get my car as a 2015.

    They can build as meany as they choose. Pissing off the paying costumer is wrong thing to do for more reasons than one .

    Could be a marketing ploy. Get everyone interested. After 3700
    The rest that did not get a Hellcat will probably go for a Scat Pack
    or 392 Hemi.

    If everyone has a deposit for a sold car, then Dodge should honor
    that sold car or stop taking orders after a pre determined
    amount of Hellcats to be sold.

    I am stuck in BX too, but that is due to my dealer only being allocated 1 for the quarter and I was #2 in line. Once the new allocations are set in early December the status code should change with firm production dates set and we should hopefully see our cars in late January. Either that or my dealer GM is tired of hearing from me every couple of days and he just fed me a bunch of BS...

    I never trust what a dealer says...sometimes they are right though. But I never trust what a dealer says. If 3700 are made for a build year...then those who didn't make the cut off will have theirs built in the next build year. Same thing happened with the new C7 corvettes. And those who got in the following build year got the new updates to the car.
