SRT8 in limited numbers?

My dealer has just received an Mineral Grey SRT8 2012. I wanted a SRT8 for mid March (my end of lease), but a black one.

For a deposit, he his offering me to sell me the grey SRT8 in March, at slight discount (he will be using it for him).

Should I agree to insure I get a car in March, or hold out to order a black one? I read that the average wait time was about 4 months now?

thanks

If it were me, I would decline the offer and get the color you want. That being said, mineral gray looks great, hard to go wrong with it.

What made you think they're all sold? Do they have limited numbers for the SRT? I'm planning on ordering before the end of this year.

Jeep CEO Michael Manley said all of the 4,000 planned for production in 2012 have been sold to dealers

And yet since that "announcement" customers have still been able to order them... and will still be able to order them.

ENCS.COM has three in stock in their facility. Just checked with my salesman today. He emailed HQ asked if I could still custom order then if not I guess I have to source one out.
