I can hardly wait to start tracking progress with VINs instead of reservation numbers.Congrats y'all! 2nd quarter of next year makes sense! I ca't believe its mid november.....those first orders will be getting on that boat soon to make the long trip across the pond!
Wow what a rush of reservation numbers, no road shows/marketing events and the early adopter reservations start to trickle off early 1200 folks keep your eyes open for the reservations they are coming sooner than expectedJust got my confirmation. my res # was 1196, April 11th. Reserved a blue/silver passion for a good time in So. Cal.
The red looked pretty fire engine red to me today at the LA Auto Show. Perhaps my pictures show the right color http://www.smartcarofamerica.com/forums/showthread.php?p=8723#post8723My choice were:
Blue/silver exterior - red interior, premium radio, alarm, power steering, and additional instruments. If the red body panels ever become true red, I'd buy those too have change once in awhile.
This is really the way it looked to me, too. Fire engine red. Some of the closeups went a little orange, but that is probably due to the flash. No red interiors Mr_Cash, sorry.The red looks awesome - totally different from the roadshow red color on the European models.
I don't think these numbers correlate the way you are thinking. You're not the 1226th order. Your number reflects either the day or week you put in the order-I don't remember which. There's a post somewhere explaining it better than I am right now. In any case,best wishes with getting your email soon. I was pretty excited when I got mine. Here's hoping demand doesn't taper off and these cars make a real impact.Wow, just found this forum-- very helpful. Anyway, I'm 1226, and 1195 got email to confirm yesterday... as much as I can gather from bits and pieces... maybe moving along at 7 confirmations a week? Yikes, I have to wait another month!?!?
