    I was just informed by my dealer that they are out of automatic transmissions and where that now puts "us" in order to get a 2015 hc is i would have to switch to a 6 speed challenger and get a car built. Or "wait for the 2016". I placed my order on 1-31-15 for a charger. Dealer also stated last week that i was #1 on the list for a charger and #4 for a hellcat. Does this sound right? Does this mean there wont be anymore chargers made?

    Check out some of the other no more auto threads on this forum. If you have a VON and are wanting an A8 Chally, you are probably waiting to 2016. If you have a VON for a Charger, there still might be hope for 2015. If you have a VIN, things look better for 2015, but no guarantees at this point. Things are changing daily...good luck.

    As it appears now, most likely yes. D1 almost certain, D most likely and Von's in BX could go to 2016. Lets see how things play out. With orders closed for 2015, FCA will have a better idea as to how many A8's can be built for this year. I wouldn't totally rule out those in Von with A8's getting a car this year, but would probably be later this summer.

    It's been stated on here that the transmission is built here in the good ole USA...I think Indiana if I recall correctly.

    I posted in the other thread, but I'm in D status... SRT stated today via live chat that I'm expected to move to D1 on July 27th. 2 months later I'll take delivery if all goes as planned. So I'm looking at October before I get my car.

    I don't see those in VON hell to get into D1 status before August (unless the M6 somehow gets you to the front of the line). Just my 2 pennies.

    The 8HP90 tranny used in the Hellcat is manufactured in Saarbrucken, Germany. The 8HP70 is manufactured in South Carolina, USA.

    We are in the same boat. I went D on 3/30 and haven't heard any updates. I did call SRT on 3/31 and they said I was scheduled for build week of April 27, but I haven't been updated to D1 yet...I think. Some who call SRT get info, some don't. I also brought up (several weeks ago) what does schedule for build mean? If they tell me I am scheduled for build week of 4/27, does that mean I will go D1 that week and scheduled for a build at a later date, or will the cat actually be built that week? Most replied it meant that it will actually be built week of 4/27.
    Some orders will be cancelled and those with duplicates will cancel when their real cat shows, M6's will allow more A8's to go through, and perhaps A8s will make a comeback toward the end of the MY. I don't see a lot of VON's moving forward, but I suspect some may get VIN's for 2015. Just hold tight everyone and "don't knowbody do nothin' too crazy" if you can help it.
