2018 Demons. They've been allocated, so go preorder yours now... Yesterday was day one of dealerships ordering from the factory. Don't screw around if you want one, it's a one year car. 3300 will be made, 300 for Canada, 3000 for USA

the dealership I work at is getting 5, plus how ever many we buy from other dealerships. If it works like the Hellcats arrival, they will come in slow, a now and then type of thing (special transporters so they aren't stolen or damaged)

and the word is that they are bottom line 90 thou for a dealership to buy. Yup. That's what the factory charges a dealership.

The intended mark up per car is 5 thousand dollars.

The real profit on each and every one is around 30-50 thousand depending on individual factors like desperation for example, aka how much a buyer wants to acquire one.

Other dealerships are already offering Demons for 30 thou over MSRP to sell to a dealership that wants to buy their allocated Demons. This sets the market value at 120k at a minimum, the way I see it.

Would a dealership part with one for less to make nice with a long term customer that buys a new car a year? Maybe. But when you consider that a new 300 only gets about 4 thou in profit, and a new Jeep Grand Cherokee is about 4 k of profit, a dealership can make a lot of profit per sale on each Demon.

Regardless, if you actually have to have one, don't screw around with the dealership, cut a check, nail one down as yours. Screw around and you'll be left in the cold and have to settle for a used Hellcat
