Default Redline Status

The build week for the first 31 RL's is August 21st and all have been coded 3000.

This means they should be in the customers hands by the end of September.

According to several members over at skyroadster.com, some Redline orders have already been picked up. A total of 56 over the last two weeks (31 were picked up two weeks ago, and 25 last week). That's not a whole lot yet, and hopefully production will continue to ramp up over the next few weeks. But, the good news is, some are being made! If they stay on schedule, I would think some of the early folks may get theirs by the end of September!

My redline is coded at 3000. How do you know that these are going to get built the week of the 21st?

If yours is actually coded at 3,000 then it should either be built the week of the 21st or the 28th. The Sales Manager at your Saturn Retailer should be able to pull up in Dealerworld what the exact build week is scheduled for.

That's great! Hopefully it shouldn't be too long of a wait then. Where do you live? If you're in a large metropolitan area, or as long as your dealer is decent size and sells a fair volume of vehicles, it shouldn't be too long then.

Supposedly, there are about 500 Saturn retailers in the country, so, for now, about 10% of those have received their first RL allocation. But, that's with pretty limited production, so I would guess that all of the '1st in line' folks should have an allocated order by, probably the end of August (which puts receipt of vehicle in the end of October time frame').

LOL, I don't know anything about the individual dealers. I just own an ION Redline and my wife is waiting for a SKY RL, and I'm an avid participant in the forums. Don't have any inside info.

Uh....another indicator might be how many SKYs total they've had physically come through the dealer (delivered and sold).

Oh, and I hear you on the wife getting onto you about it. Mine's always bugging me to find out new info for her. I have to say "Babe, I can only find info if it's there to be found!"

Your dealership is owned by the same group that owns the dealership I went through for my non-RL Sky. It's a network of 6 dealerships in the Chicagoland area -- NW Indiana, South Holland, Tinley Park, Downers Grove, Joliet, and Oaklawn. I was told by my dealer, that this network of 6 dealerships is considered the highest volume in the area...but I have no idea if it's really true.

My RL code is 3400 with a TPW of 8-07-06 which is tommorrow.
Don't really expect it to get built tommorrow, most of what we've been hearing is around 8-28 they will be built(the first batch) But i'll keep yas posted if my code does hit 3800 on wednesday or as soon as it does.

A co-worker has an order placed for the Solstice GTP. Seeing that the Sky & Solstice are essentially the same car, when could he expect his GTP to be built?

This is based on the assumption that the RL & GTP are built at the same plant...

My R/L is at 3400 Order Broadcast to plant. My TPW has been changed from 8/14 to 8/28, I am in the first 31 group, so that means all
TPW's after mine will be moved ahead accordingly. This is probably because of the addition of the torque tube which delayed production. Late Sept is a safe assumption on delivery.

BTW GXP/RL's are built on the same assembly lines along with base SOLs & SKYs. Boxwood Plant, Wilmington, Delaware. Nice pix of built SKY & R/L's Syroadster.com site. They were taken yesterday
