No. Personally I'm waiting for my Sept. 2022 Production date to slip into sometime 2023

You have to hope the 60 day thing is fine when production gets up to speed, or at least some % towards normal cycle times; however, for the combination of current times and commencement of customer production, I'd very much hope that they are accumulating sufficient stock of all production parts to be able to build just about any variant someone has optioned.

So rather than production being delayed, maybe they are just eating into some of that 60 day contingency.

Sir Jim said on Tuesday (at the FT interview) that customer production starts next week - so one would think they need to send out contracts very soon (unless he is referring to cars that will be sent to dealers as demos and then sold to customers)

Would anyone be totally surprised if customer cars turned up at retailer partners before contracts were signed?

You mean as a showroom car?

No as customer cars.

Phone call from agent: "Hello, your new cars just arrived on a transporter. Can you come in and sign your contract?"

That would be rather “unfriendly”. By now there’s so much unclear that building the car without the contract wouldn’t be a wise decision.

test vehicles? Which tests?

Or do you mean try out vehicles for customers?

This might be a language problem. In German, a "Testfahrt" (test drive) is different from a "Probefahrt" (try out drive).

I think they were only signed up by Ineos officially last month [Edit: actually it was announced 26th August 22], so probably at the back of the queue for demonstrators?

"We currently have news that due to the situation with a shortage of some parts, the announced start of production will be slower than expected, by about three to four months. We will contact each customer about the current dates of the ordered cars. We expect demonstration cars at the beginning of December 2022."

Well, what I know they talked to Ineos some time ago. I canceled my ordered LC76 and moved my money to IG deposit +-November 2021. Maybe December.

FYI- for Australian buyers:

I had a call with my agent (Rex Gorell) yesterday - nice chap (Simon Favaloro)

I asked him what activities have been planned for customers who have ordered a Grenadier & what other marketing initiatives are going to happen now that 8 or more LS Grenadiers left Zeebrugge this week bound for Australia.

He advised that Rex Gorell has NO activities planned for these cars because INEOS had yet to officially advise that these cars coming, when they would arrive, when Australian agents would receive one & for how long they would have one, who could drive them etc. etc.

However, he did say there is an update meeting with INEOS scheduled for next week and he expects all these issues will be covered but assured me that order holders would have absolute priority to drive.

He also said that Rex Gorell has 71 orders placed with them as agents.

I would like to trade my jacket for a model Grenadier and a mini jerry can painted in my color. LOL
