Inside report from the factory.... there is a dynamic sensor shortage. All cars use them. Enough to build some car tomorrow and then they are out of stock. Production stops sometime tomorrow. Vendor unsure if it will be a week or 3 months to restock!

This info come from the guy at the factory reporting on jailbreaks getting built everyday on the jailbreak FB page.

Source is the insider that post on the Jailbreak FB group. The issue is the same. Computer chip. Its a month till the current vendor can supply more, so the idea was to take the chips out of the current cars built to build more cars on the line and do that over and over till the part comes in and then install and ship 1000's of cars. The problem is the vendor said after 5 removals and installs the chip/part is no good. Hence the meeting tomorrow to figure out a plan according to him. This guy at the factory is legit and has been spot on with info updating the group regarding all of JB cars going down the line every day by VIN.

According to the insider, the body building part of the factory was given instructions complete what they have in the works by tomorrow 1 shift so as no bodies will be half built or fully painted and stuck there for long layoff starting next week. The chip vendor gathered up what they had to build some cars this week and thats it for a few weeks.
