    Had my trip to the dealer for some service on another car today. Meet up with my salesman at the dealer.
    He showed me a new Hellcat Charger just in. Also told me that they could not place any new Hellcat orders for Challenger or Charger this year due to back log and engine shortage. Their units are contract sold orders so they have no cars available.
    Anyone heard anything other info on the engine shortage???

    I think engine shortage comes and goes multiple times/week. When they have the engines in, they build them, when they don't they build others cars. (total guess here but just an observation).

    You have heard that they suspended all new orders a couple weeks ago though right? Simply more orders in the system than they can build so no need to keep it open anymore.

    I did, but I though it was temporary not for the entire year.

    RS stated that orders are not set to reopen until August and that will be for MY 2016 orders.
