When I place the order they said January. I'm trying to get an update.

Welcome. Who are you working with on your order? There's a dealer opening in Palo Alto this month.
I've been working with Sunnyvale Toyota but the FiskerSiliconValley group is moving from that dealer to the new McLaren Dealership in Palo Alto at the end of this month.
By the way, they are now saying I may get my Karma before the end of the year. It's supposed to go into production in 2 weeks.

Were they specific about which year? (Sorry, could not resist).

If you ordered on August 29th and production will start in just two weeks time, you must have leaped over a lot of the 3000 deposit holders. I am having a hard time figuring out how this allocation process works.

Anyway, lucky you, as your wait will only be a few months. Most of us have been waiting for 3 to 4 years now and still aren't driving (or even know when we'll be driving). Mine has already been produced but is stuck at the factory awaiting the European certificate of compliance. Well that's the price we pay for being first (by a nose length).

Another Update. Delivery date is now set for February 21st. However, now I have a VIN number so the car has been built. EcoSport, Inferno, Canyon Tritone #1188

Keep an eye on the ship its on, expect it to be on the wrong ship (they don't always know which one its on) but it will still make it to Newark within a week of when they expect it. Then it stays in Newark for roughly 10 days for upgrading, etc, etc. Then gets on a truck and has to be delivered to dealer in 10 days. Then 3 days for dealer prep, etc. Deliveries are getting more consistent. you'll love your car! Remember to post pictures when you get it. Otherwise it didn't happen :)

In an email last week my dealer said to expect my car to remain in Newark for 3-4 weeks for battery clamp adjustment and software upgrade. I'm sure that will diminish as the backlog is cleared and more of these issues are resolved at the factory. They have me at the "whatever" point now. If you ordered in August and have #1188, it would appear that as of August there were close to 2000 original deposit holders who had not confirmed at that time.

How do I find out what ship it's on? My dealer doesn't seem to know as he told me my car could be in port or on a ship. Anyway, I wish to thank you for the information you've provided as it's more than my dealer has given me.[hr]

BillyO, can you tell me your serial number and delivery date for comparison and how you came up with 2000 deposit holders who had not confirmed at that time?

Your dealer should absolutely know the status of your car once you get a VIN and it goes into assembly. From that point forward they can get regular updates from their system. My dealer gets updates 3 times per week but typically updates me every week or so. I can always call my dealer and get more frequent updates but my dealer has been excellent in keeping me updated.

I was one of the original 3000. My VIN is 919 and I confirmed my color and interior in the first group. That was last April, I believe. The car is in port and I expect delivery in a month.
You ordered in August so it would follow that all original deposit holders who had confirmed their orders would have lower serial #'s than yours. Since your # is 1188 it would follow that the max number of confirmed orders before yours would be 1187 this would include the original deposit holders as well as any new orders confirmed before yours. That leaves at least 1800 deposit holders who had not firmed up their selection.

I was deposit # 999 in Aug 2008. I confirmed Laguna... But the color is still not solved. Mr production date has been moved several times( first in the fall because of the Tricolor problem then the Laguna problem)and currently is 1 March. But within the last 2 weeks, Fisker confirmed the Laguna was not solved yet...but was expected to be solved sometime in March. My point : I confirmed long ago but am not in your calculations when you come up with 2000....and I doubt any Laguna nor any other delayed colors are, although it may be Laguna is currently the only delayed color.[hr]
I think a serial # is not assigned before production.

has anyone specifically stated what the problem with the color is? Adhesion problems, color consistency, etc.?

I think this was the initial problem with some colors, a lack of Xirallic due to the Earthquake in Japan:

That would make sense along with the possiblity that a Xirallic shortage caused Fisker to have to choose the most desired colors to have mixed and Laguna is probably at the bottom of the list since that would affect the least amount of customers. Just a guess.
