When I ordered my 2013 Fiat Abarth in September, they told me there were none in stock and they'd have to build me one. They predicted it'd be ready by Nov/Dec. I didn't mind the wait because they were building the car to my particular specifications and I don't need a car until it starts snowing (which is when I can't ride my motorcycles).
I've been getting weekly status reports from the factory where the elves have been hard at work. Today, they reported the car is done! All finished. They expect to deliver it to me in about two weeks.
I can't wait to pop the clutch and squeal the tires. And, of course, pose for pictures.
