For those that order the 2011 Mustang.

Today I just order my new Mustang 5.0. But I havn't got my vin number yet. The dealership told me that my car would be in, in 2 months or alittle more. My question was how long did you waited to receive your mustang?

Sounds like your dealer was a little more honest than most, but it is still a crap shoot as to when you get your car. If you check out the threads in the forum, you will find that there are people who ordered in January who still haven't gotten their cars. But others, who ordered in late April, have gotten them. I ordered middle March, had an ETA of May 4th, but am still waiting...dealer says there's a hold on all GTs until 6/15. Who knows......

My opinion is that's a tricky question under the current circumstance. The fact that the car is currently a new release & all the holds they've had on them its tough to say, but the "general" rule when ordering a car is 6-8 weeks from order, to drive away.

Just ordered my new Mustang GT. Dealer told me less than 8 weeks, but made no promises. Based on what I've read here, I think he was telling me the truth, that is, he didn't know. However, because it is so difficult to find the 5.0 with 6 speed stick with most of the features I want, I gave up and ordered exactly what I want. So, I'll get a car with nearly 0 miles on it tricked out the way I want it.

I test drove a 2010. If the 2011 is faster off the line, look out drivers license.

Btw - I'm a 1960's old guy, who had a 67 327 Camaro. Now I'm joining the competition.

Good taste! You will love the 3.73's and rowing the gears.

I think its common to get your car delivered late.The dealer is honest that he told you that it would take time to deliver.

I ordered mine and they told me maybe 6-8 weeks. I was just told I would get in July 1st. So that will make it 8 weeks.

On a side note: Damn I thought I would be one of the few getting the Kona Blue. Is the age of the red mustang ending?

There are some people here you just don't want to ask that question to. You might not be aware but there was/is upwards of 4000 mustangs sitting in a lot outside of the factory for Quality Control inspections. This only seems to effect the early orders that were built first so I wouldn't worry, but here's my answer to that question:


Ordered 2/24
Scheduled 3/21
Started Production 4/15
Finished Build 4/20
ETA 5/1
...
...
Updated ETA 5/7
...
...
...
...
No Updates 5/14
...
...
...
...
...
E-mail from Ford "Undergoing final inspection, no estimated ETA" 5/31
...
...
...
Today...

GT/CS Race Red M/T

-Glass Roof
-3.73
-Security package

Delivered 6/21, first day of summer

Just got off the phone with Ford Customer Service.

Order Date: 5-24

In production: 6-8 Today Wh00P!!!

Planned Arrival: 6-28

So minimum of 3 weeks out if everything is happy. I wonder if by ordering later then I bypass some of those "Hold for Quality" issues that some of you guys are experiencing. If the production line has been fixed then new cars rolling off shouldn't have to be held for quality where as cars built earlier and have been sitting have to go back through a quality check/ fix.

Yea let me keep my little dream afloat while I finally get my car before Thanksgiving.

That seems to be the deal...

Ordered 2/8
Built 5/4
Shipment cancelled by Ford on 6/1 and was told a replacement would be fast-tracked

I'll probably get it sooner than if I waited for the original car that's been sitting on Ramp 51 since 5/4...but we'll see...

How is this possible? The dealer said they placed my order as dealer stock on May 17th. Ford customer service said the order wasn't actually processed until May 27th. I don't even have a vin yet? I am just a little jealous. How is yours already in production, and I don't even have a vin#?

I understand that some of you have been waiting for months. I am not complaining, I am just wondering how this time line is supposed to work.

Thanks
