    Hello Everyone,

    I am new to your site and I am planning to order a Hellcat around November 14th. Am I a day late and a dollar short, meaning "Will I see my new Hellcat in June or July of next year?" Also, I live in Florida and the dealer I bought my 2012 Challenger SRT8 isn't exactly a big mover of Challengers. So this dealer probably has no allocations and I will not play any games with them to pay 10K over MSRP. Any Florida members have any suggested dealers to go to in the Tampa area? Thank you for any help.

    Welcome to a fellow Disabled Veteran, BKuz
    I live in the Texas panhandle, ordered mine out of state.
    Sometimes you just have to do that... Got my Ram 1500 from the same guy.

    You could always call Bill Pemberton at Woodhouse Dodge in Blair Nebraska...they will deliver the car for a reasonable price. Plus they DO NOT charge over msrp

    Hi BKuz. Glad you found the forum! That is a beautiful Challenger you have right now! I bought my Hellcat from a small dealer and I was his one and only first allocation. He had ordered one for the lot, but held it and moved mine in front. If you are not in a huge hurry, it sounds like the builds are going to open up mid 2015 and you will be able to get more options. I think it is this crazy first two allotments that has caused so much frustration. Good for Mopar, we all love to have unexpected gains in sales, but keeping up I think has been tough. For me, working with a dealer I know is going to be there for me and help me get answers is worth a lot. Especially if they don't try to jack the price. Good luck with your order! Great choice in cars. You have impeccable taste. :)

    Hello 10 Sec Cat,

    I spoke to Suncoast Dodge in Seminole and Ferman Dodge in New Port Richey plus a rep from USAA named Mike. All said no discounts on specialty vehicles like the Hellcat or the Viper. You can get it at MSRP. I know I was excited because at first when I went online to the USAA website it said I would get a $864 discount. There are absolutely no rebates, discounts, or incentives on the Hellcat.

    Diablosport is already working on a tune for the Hellcat to get it back to 825 hp!! I will hold on to my Trinity Tuner!

    What part of upstate New York are you from? I moved to Florida after I retired from the Air Force. I was stationed at Plattsburgh Air Force Base and I lived in Morrisonville New York.
