Trying to still figure this out. Ordered 11/20/2022 and waiting on a vin number to keep track. How long does this take?

Your order date is 10 months into the future?

I assume you mean October 2021 order date.

A VIN will only be assigned when a production date is scheduled.

Since there are people (like me) with reservations going all the way back to July 2020 you are 15 months behind on the waiting list. Now incredibly the process has gotten all messed up so much that some with relatively new orders are getting picked up sooner than some early reservations. There are some constrained materials so some options will place you further back....we sort of hope that those with early reservations that haven't gotten picked up yet it was because they have some constrained option like hard top or tow package.

So depending on what you ordered, it might get picked up early, but may be behind many other earlier reservations.

I ordered 10/18/21 still don't have a VIN or Production Date.

I know someone who ordered 12/23/21 and has a VIN but no Production Date.

Granted our builds are drastically different.

Took 15 months to get mine, good luck!!

But a reservation means nothing so who knows, you could probably walk on a lot right now and pick up a BB, 4 door soft-top.

If you ordered a four door soft top with no tow package and no PPF, you have pretty good odds of a short wait.

If you ordered a hard top, or a two door, it is a crap shoot but will probably be a longer wait.
