Figured I'd start this thread for those of us 馃嚚馃嚘 with confirmed pre-orders to commiserate over the timing of getting delivery of our Zs.

I've been periodically checking in with my GTA dealership to get a status update. I continue to do this despite the fact that I figured out that I probably know more than the dealer does about the Z :giggle:. I checked in with the dealership this week and was told that they still have no updates as to timing -- and that their computer system isn't showing any progress either in terms of my vehicle (no VIN yet). I've kind of resigned myself to the fact that the Z may not arrive until mid-late August. Let's just hope it isn't that much later than August.

Anyone else heard anything?

I was called in last week to spec out my car and send it out to the factory, no VIN and ETA sadly.
@BB_Sam have you been called to spec your car like @Zark? What are you going to go with?

What's to "spec out"? Colours, trim, and trans were all specified when the national reservation was made (and I assume when the initial pre-orders were taken the week or so before that national system came online). Maybe this is the dealer's attempt to get you to buy accessories, extended warranty, tire protection, etc?

As Devon noted, my car was spec'd months ago -- when pre-orders opened in Canada back in January. All of the vehicles allocated to Canada were sold out within weeks. I ended up getting the Serian Blue, on Blue, Performance trim, manual transmission.

@BB_Sam & @Zark do you know what initial allocations are like at your dealer or any others close by?
I don't think there are "allocations" like the Americans are dealing with. As far as I know, all of the Z's coming to Canada have been pre-sold as part of the January Canadian launch. I was told that I was the first paid/confirmed order for my dealership (my order was processed within hours of the pre-launch). All of the pre-ordered Z's permit the buyer to back out of the deal (after all, back then we didn't even know the price of the car), so -- in terms of allocation -- the only Z's that will be available in Canada for the 2023 MY will be cancelled pre-orders.

Same with mine. I was able to get an actual order in through my dealership's system on Jan 29th. Just a few days before the live launch on the Nissan website. He was able to put in the colour, transmission and trim package, and then fired the order off to Nissan for approval. They have been in fairly close contact with me,and no word on their end of anything specific. Last they officially heard (like we all did) was a rough July-Sept time frame after they announced the parts shortage. Then he contacted me again the second the pricing table was in his hands.

I think the dealers are kind of in the dark. :( I have a funny feeling some of these are just going to randomly show up at some dealerships soon. And everyone will be like; no thats my pre order, no that one is mine! haha (Insert spiderman pointing at spiderman meme)

I bet there will be some obvious flippers out there especially with the state the car market is in currently. So some Canadians that didn't preorder and are willing to pay a premium could get one initially.

I thought about the flippers also. Just thinking about the pricing here in BC, the performance with taxes is going to be right around 70k give or take. That鈥檚 a very hefty price already. I guess someone could spend more on a flip, 80-100k before taxes? Seems like a lot for what the car is when you start looking at other cars in that price range.
