What’s going in in Ukraine is atrocious and I know better than most, however, the Italians aren’t going to stop working because of it and their 3rd party suppliers aren’t from that region. It’s basically like saying the cars produced in Mexico will be affected by cartel issues in Columbia…..just not a thing.
The world economy is global and supply chain issues affect EVERYBODY.

Also, ever heard of chip shortages?

I know guys who ordered their Land Rover Defenders more than a YEAR ago and still haven't gotten it.

It sure is but none of your stated issues are Ukraine driven. That issue is very recent and it impacting supply(yet). The 6-8 month delay was rumored prior to the invasion. That’s my point. Chip issues and supply issues are a completely separate issue.

If the war in Ukraine spreads (and it definately can), then it'll affect everything. Russia supplies a good chunk of the world's oil and gas, esp. Europe. This is needed for auto fuel, jet fuel, etc. So of course transportation will be affected. Russia also supplies a good portion of rare Earth minerals needed to make computer chips. If they shut it down, watch out.

No country functions in isolation in the 21st century. They're all interconnected.

Global economic collapse is coming sooner than you think.

Oh good lord, lol. None of your stated comments have anything to do with my original post but please continue; it’s quite an interesting read.

Here's something interesting. My local dealer told me that if I order a MC20 now, it'll be a 3-4 year wait.

In Switzerland, the land of milk and honey, 8 MC20s are already for sale on the internet. From new cars to demonstration models with 8000km. There is no premium price to pay for any of these cars. All are on list price level or already significantly below. In our case, it looks like supply has already exceeded demand. Therefore, I maintain that the waiting period of four years is not correct or that this will be massively reduced very soon.

Yes, my dealer has been on top of the order, build, inspection process, etc. Information is communicated via a series of codes. I don’t have all the information, but if I recall correctly, the big one is 85 which means the car has been built and off to inspection. Then there are codes for when it gets shipped, when it’s unloaded and transported to a US facility for more inspections, etc. Your dealer can look up the status of your car on his system each day and tell you the status based upon the code that is shown. I believe this is true for all Maseratis ordered by a dealer, not just the MC20’s.

I’m not sure the average sales person has access to the status system, so you may need to work with the GM or head of sales, if you aren’t already. Your car may be in production for example, but they may figure it’s a moot point until production is finished (which can take longer than anticipated), so they may not have communicated that to you. I agree that transparency is really helpful, especially as these cars take a long time to get built and reach the customer. I know that my dealer has pretty limited information from the factory (so his hands are a bit tied); however, he’s been extremely communicative and transparent about all the details—I’ve been impressed with my dealer.

Stunning!
I’m a few weeks away from taking delivery of mine. What do you think of it?
I love the car. It’s much more beautiful in person. Still getting used to the LCD rear view mirror. It kinda whacks my vision going from looking out in front of my car then focusing on a basically a computer screen. The car is a super quick. It handles great. Not as loud as my Ferrari Roma, but some really cool turbo sounds compensate for that. Transmission is awesome. It is supper fast and very smooth. I think Maserati hit a home run with this car.

same color as the one I have on order.. did you receive any notice? as far as production has started or its here come pick it up?
I did get a call from the dealer when it went to production. They can see on the dealer web page what the production code is. Later they informed me the day it shipped. Then I call when it hit the port here in the us.

Congratulations, BluMC20. The more you drive this car the more you appreciate it. Its an excellent daily supercar. Enjoy
I drove it to work today. And you are correct. The more I drive it, the more I appreciate it. It was so funny reading all the negative posts about the car before anyone had one. What a great driver. And really, that is what it is all about.
