I was just thinking about this this morning. From memory they were supposed to ramp up to something like 100/week run rate, and for the moment I have only heard of a handful delivered. I think Amy mentioned they were still having some sort of supply issue. Even if they get rolling this week, that means they will still be working on cars into late September - which is *really* late for a 2008 model year car.

 

I was *so* excited about this car, but I have to admit - my patience is really starting to wear thin...

Sadly, it's par for the course around here Chris.

Patience is a virtue, be patient and let them works out the issues, this is a extremely high profile car and will be the focal point of many crtiics, personally I rather them take their time and produce a high quality finished product instead of simply rushing the production to please the masses.

 

In my opinion it is worth the wait and waiting for, as this is one amazing car, worthy of the name KING.

Agree 100%

Looks like SAI gave us a little more HP for the wait... :yahoo:
