    We have a Hellcat ordered at noon on 9-9-14. 2 weeks ago it was upgraded to D1 with a build date of 11-24-14. The issues I have read in this forum, at times, are very misleading and some just plain false! The issue of trademark was solved before they ever announced the new Hellcat. It was some motorcycle named Hellcat and Dodge resolved it. They will build as many as they can given orders, production schedule and parts. In other words, NO limited production. They truly did not plan on the enormous demand yet are busy getting cars built. The satin hood issue is simply a parts problem. They are waiting to get a new supply and that our Hellcat will definitely have that hood. The Laguna seat issue is quite similar. We will get exactly what we ordered! Yes, there was not a sunroof option when it was ordered. The issue of not passing emissions is completely false. Our Hellcat evidently went from D1 back to D due to parts availability. The rep said it still showed a target build date of 11-24-14. The SRT guys are aware of this site and find it entertaining at best. I think all this excitement brings the gossip, falsehoods and unfounded anger that is so like politics at large. My advice is patience and stop speculating. Folks will get this car as fast as possible, given overwhelming demand, likely before Christmas. Keep Smiling!

    Not exactly doubting your info, but, how is your knowledge/info any better or more accurate than others before you? Most of us have never had to wait, had dates change so often, get different updates from the same people, had options change after ordering, etc as we have for the Hellcat. I know we will get our machines sometime -- it's just all the changing and waiting that is grinding on us.

    Well said. I haven't had one for almost 44 years. 6 months more is nothing. Gives me time and money to get some projects done around the house. Because when it does get here there won't be anytime left for chores

    I too, would like to know where/when/how you got your info. All of us on here have been so misled that we naturally doubt anything we see posted and, no offence, but you're fairly new on here so we haven't had the pleasure of getting to know you.

    Think before you post!

    So far my Dealer has been right on with the info. Only thing I question is how many they will build due to the allocation system. Unless they are just going to waive the allocations after the first build.

    Check in with us in Dec and see how that goes!? Why wouldn't they build cars that parts and options were available, instead of holding up the whole roll out? More to it that that.

    BIG difference between building them and shipping them. Not to mention, mine and several others that were SUPPOSED to be built this week went from D1 back to D. Please, ResumeSpeed, share with us how you have attained your knowledge.

    When will the folks in Canada see some updates??
    Truly unreasonable to open order banks for Canadians then put this allocation process in place after the fact.
    102 days with a VON and NO INFO FROM DEALER OR DODGE

    Please don't say your dealer wasn't allocated a car cause that's a crock.

    Canadians were told ordering opened July 23rd and all dealers I spoke to that accually knew about it wanted a 5k deposit so FCA would know you were a serious customer.
    There was No allocation process at that time and I was made to believe I could order a car.
    102 days later I still have to wonder wtf?
    All that's needed IMHO is a phone call, an email, anything that let's me know my order is firm and accepted.
    When I ordered I was told spring delivery, FANTASTIC AWESOME CANT WAIT!!!
    BUT.... I sure didn't expect to have NO INFO thru this whole process and doubt daily wether my order is good or not???
    Wait 9-10 months for a car that might come ,who knows at this point.

    They made 50k+ challengers last year. 5k hellcats will be a walk in the park. Keep calm people.
