    Well i was very excited last week when I got my VIN, thought this might actually mean I would be driving my Hellcat this summer.

    But....

    Just got thru talking to SRT team and they pulled up my VIN and told me it was scheduled to go into production the week of June 1st, 2015.

    Could go into production next year or never. I'd take June.

    Your right I should not be complaining. I just got all excited when I got the VIN, was hoping maybe car would be here by June 1st.

    But I know there are a lot of people that are in worst shape.

    WOW, So they are filling up the production schedule all the way in to June? So issuing 1000 VIN's was to try and appease everyone? Looking more like 5500 produced for the model year.

    Destan just told me 5/25/2015 tentative build date. Is that when it would go to D1? And would you guess that it would take a couple of months to deliver to the dealer after being built?

    Usually D1 means you got a firm date.. So could go D1 anytime

    Sounds like there is no "average" time, based on feedback from other members, it is all over the place....

    but.. Jeff Dickson told me last week, I should plan on 8-10 weeks AFTER Build week to delivery.

    Sorry for you're that. I think I'm in the same boat as you are. Been a month since I've got my vin but not in D1 yet. Where did you call to have you're built date?

    I had a feeling early yesterday that what they were doing is basically planning production from here until July. This way a bunch of people got their VINs and would shut up and leave them alone and looks good in the press, but in reality it could be 3-4 months until they are even built. Think about it, before the onslaught of VINs last Friday people had D1 dates in mid-April already. So anything coming after that would be even further pushed to the right. I think they make what is in the pipeline, what just when to D in the last few days, then they re-evaluate a final limited batch sometime in May-June to send to D1 that will cover the last bunch of 2015s to be built in Aug-Sept.

    I would agree with your assessment of the situation. D1 since March 5th, so they are really rolling out slowly.

    I think for those of us without VINs, we have one final shot to get in the last batch, otherwise it's on to 2016. I trust Jeff @ SRT and hope he is correct that our orders/VONs carry over and we stay in line at our dealers where we are with new 2016 orderees falling in line behind us. Otherwise.......that will put me into the frustrated.PO'd camp and I'll seriously consider saying screw it. I'm not going to sit through this dysfunctional circus again......

    IF it goes to a 2016(hope not 4 you) then does the pricing increase go along also?
