Just put down my $1,000 deposit. Man im excited to get this thing. Currently.. I am the 16th person in line... although they showed me the list & 4 out of the 15 people are having there regular Sky's built right now... so technically im the 12th slot. I am the 8th person on the redline list. You think its possible to still get it this year? No biggie if I cant... its the car I want & ill wait whatever it takes to get it. :)

Ifyou are 8th on the redline list I'm guessing you won't see a car till 2007. Don't mean to rain on your parade.

Even being true, it just gives me more time to pay off my current car + raise up 6+ prepaid insurance. :)

The number in line at any individual dealer doesn't give you a lot of info. Some dealers have 70 people in line and some have 10. But, some dealers receive many more cars each month.

I wonder, though, does Saturn build cars based on order of deposit date, or is it strictly based on allocation numbers (past dealer performance)? Would a dealer with 70 cars on order receive 7 skys per month, but one with 10 only order only receive one? Or would a dealer who sold 2000 Saturns last year receive twice as many Skys per month as the dealer who sold 1000. I was told that it was based totally on allocation, not on orders, which means that there are a bunch of people out there who just unluckily plopped their money down with the wrong dealer.

no word from my dealer

Congrats to those of you who got a chance to order today.
I spoke with my dealer and I am number one on the RL list but no allocation as the last time I checked.
Are there actual images being produced for the RL's ? :banghead:

All allocations are based on the sales of the dealership in the prior year. It doesn't make any difference how many they have on order.

And I agree with 5thgenluder that you might not see ayour Red line untill the 2008 model which will be out the second half of 2007.
