When were you notified of a date Between February and now?
I would say it was maybe the first week of July that I was informed it was going into production and then found out this past Monday that it is in the body shop now and will be produced the week of July 26th.

Congratulations, John! Will we see you at Mt. Airy after receipt of your new car? Let me know & I'll be sure to come look at it!
You bet - I think I will try to keep the loaner through the weekend and pick up the 21 early next week. I'm planning on some paint correction and then PPF/tint so I probably won't be out much until early August.

I went to the Hunt Valley C&C show last Saturday morning. A great show with tons of exotic, muscle and crazy car club vehicles. 1st time I've seen a fellow GT500 in the wild. There were 5 including mine. Plan to go again this weekend.

Does anyone know:

1. If some of the ordered 2021 GT500's will be changed to 2022 because of the delays? (Still delivered in 2021, but changed to model year 2022).

2. When the order banks will open, and allocations be circulated, to order 2022 GT500's?

3. When 2022 GT500's will begin to be received at Dealers?

Thank you for your thoughts!

I suspect 2021s will be made all the way to year’s eland like what we saw last year. Orders will be filled as long as parts/chips are available.

I ordered my 2012 GT500 in April of 2011 and it was built in July 2011. The S550 versions are current year models. I can't see 2021 builds going past December. The 2021 order banks opened in January 2021. I don't think they started producing cars until March.

The limiting factor on the GT500's are the tires, they probably won't produce any CFTP or CFHP car past Nov. 2021 depending on the outside temperatures. The end of the model year will determine if the base models go any further. The last I heard, and this was a while ago, the 2021MY would end sometime in Nov 2021. I guess we will just have to wait and see what happens next. If I was a betting man, I would be broke.

Got the call. Car is here. Went last night to see it and got to start it up. This morning they do PDI and I pick it up after lunch. I have never named a car, but I think I am going to call it Jules, cause this car is a bad mf’er.

My car is now 86 miles from the dealer, and won’t be at the dealers until 8/4 to 8/10.
OUTSTANDING :mad::mad::mad:
They moved the delivery from 7/18-7/24 to 8/4-8/10 this week. Just got a call from the dealer that it’s in.
Snoopy49 said he wouldn’t doubt it would be in the end of this week, Once again he was correct!
