    Welp, I'm late to the party but after my 2008 was vandalized and totaled out due to the damage, it's time to upgrade.

    Just a couple of questions

    1) Am i third allocation if i get an order in today with a dealer with an allocation available?
    2) Expected delivery time with third allocation? Challengers are my daily, and this hellcat will be too!
    3) Starting at invoice and working up, A few individuals have already gotten 1k above invoice, lets see if i can even try lower.

    (PS, I wanted a sunroof too. But waiting over 5 months for it to even start production is too long)

    if the dealer is saying he has an allocation available, then that would be 2nd allocation (3rd opens on Jan 13th).

    Cool, So im just in time for the end of 2nd allocation if the dealership confirms theirs.

    Alright cool, So it looks like if i can get the dealer done this week i can fit into the end of 2nd allocation.

    There is a white one in LI, but not too sure of white.

    Good luck ordering your Hellcat. Agree with others that its easier to find one already on a dealer lot.
    You will not get a Hellcat right now for $1K over invoice unless you find a small dealer that received an allocation and get extremely lucky. The norm right now is to buy one at MSRP. There is only 1 dealer in OK that was selling for $1K over invoice, but that dealer did not receive any Cats for the first or second allocation.
    If you find a dealer selling $1K above invoice, lots of people on this forum would like to know.

    A few dealers have already cut 2k under MSRP for their hellcats. The only thing stopping me from jumping on them is one is black and the other is white, I'm not a big fan of either but if ordering is going to take over 3 months for delivery, I might just get the black one.

    I would be really impressed if you ordered a car now and had it in your hands in 3 months. It could happen, but would be a serious anomoly! Best of luck! Good luck! Best choice ever on the Hellcat! You will love it. Sorry to hear about your other baby.:(

    Do you mind sharing what part of the country the 2 dealers are located you are referring to that are coming in $2K below MSRP?

    Three dealers East Coast i've found offering under MSRP. Some of them only a few hundred bucks to a couple of them offering 1k-2k above invoice. When i saw that guy who ordered his 1k above invoice i had my doubts, but on the east coast its starting to show.

    Note: This was after 5 dealerships asking for a 10k markup, in which i said (call me when you stop being fucktards)

    I wonder if it is like my car that was supposedly automatically posted for $6k under book even though it was a sold order. It was listed on Cars.com and another website until I told my dealer to pull it!!! o_O My car WAS NOT $6k under MSRP! Would have been ecstatic if it were!:D

    A few dealerships have Hellcats listed at or under MSRP, but when you call its magically 10k over MSRP. Basically just keep going down the list, don't fight with a dealership. They want to be dumb, let them. When next allocation comes by and they realize they can't order any cause no one wants to spend more then MSRP now it's their money not ours.
