Still 3-5 days from status 150 (Production started). When it hits 150 you'll get a VIN.

7 days.

I would guess that your car will go 150 on Monday, Dec. 12th.

I thought for awhile, that was your fastest speed on the autobahn. I would have said, "go out, and try again"

Being a realist- when does this vehicle most likely arrive at my Georgia dealership for delivery? I'm talking ball park here. Thanks.

Well, if it gets on a ship to Charleston shortly after production is completed, I'd guess within 3 weeks from the ship date.

I'd venture to say that you will be driving it by the 1st of Feb.

Thanks for the information. I don't know what I like best - choosing the vehicle you want; the options/color decision process; the shopping of dealers; the actual ordering; the anticipation waiting for your car; or when you finally take delivery.

After delivery it's all downhill - back to the drawing board and deciding what will be the next best replacement

It's an addiction - that's for sure. Just ask my wife. I tell her it's cheaper than a country club membership and playing golf on the weekends. There are worse hobbies to have.
