    Hey guys, I am new to the forums...my dealer finally got a Challenger allotment, I have put down a deposit, and officially ordered my 2016 Hellcat (Pitch black, manual trans, black interior, red belts, and brass monkey wheels for those interested)

    My question is for you guys that have purchased a 2016, what has the typical wait been from this stage (deposit and order) to delivery?

    When I ask my dealer they say they really have no idea at this point but hope to at least have a build date in the next couple of weeks..I trust my dealer, I have bought 3 cars from them over past 5-6 years and they are super honest, but I wanted to ask you guys that have actually gone through this...

    PS - I have barely slept since the call came in that I was finally able to order one, I've been on 9 lists all over the country for over a year now...hard to describe the level of my excitement...best I can do is about what it felt like at 10 years old on Christmas eve...

    Thanks in advance for any insight..

    Check out Bob's tracking spreadsheet. You can get a feel there for order date to estimated ship date. I ordered 11/5/15 and have an estimated delivery date of 12/2/15 thru 12/8/15. Pretty fast!

    It's getting much, much faster than it used to be. There were people who waited in VIN for many months during the '15 run. Now sub-month is common, so it may be a quick turnaround for you.

    Welcome! As Tom Petty said, "the Waaaiting Is the Hardest Part..."

    2016 builds seem to be moving along at a fast clip. My 2016 was ordered on 9/11/15 and delivered to dealer 10/15/15.

    Got my VIN number today!!!!
    My dealer sent me an updated POC.
    Status is D - "Firm schedule serial number is assigned"

    I added my info to Bob's tracking spreadsheet...can anyone tell me how I get the estimated build date? I don't see a spot on the POC form that would show that...

    I ordered mine on September 10th and it was delivered on November 5th. My salesman has now sold 7 Hellcats and he said that he has never seen one come in that fast. Feeling lucky!

    It's called a "permagrin" . Congrats on your new cat. Start a new thread with pics and your story on how it came to be.
