SRTFAN, sometimes the tracking doesn't get updated all that quickly. If your vehicle was in paint a few days ago, it's likely sitting outside the building waiting for the big journey if it wasn't tagged for extra inspections. The whole process takes less than a couple days once it's on the line.

Well since *we* don't actually do any painting...

THE ROBOTS magically screwed it up...maybe.

BTW: I have worked quality control/minor repair in the paint shop. They screw up. A lot. And then we, humans, have to fix it to the best of our ability, with what we are supplied. (Very expensive stuff is all I'm gonna say)

I actually don't know, I can't tell what any vehicle is/who's it is until it comes into assembly.

I'm in the same boat as you. I highly doubt they're both in paint still. I wouldn't worry about it. They're probably already built.

Some may not know that though.

Neither are built yet. Only a handful (<10) retail models have been built so far for the US market (and about the same for Canada).
