All cars are sold with a Master #, if you ordered thru Speed and you're master number is lower than the dealer, then you will get your car before the dealer. If your master number is higher than the dealers that ordered cars, then you will get yours after the dealer, but you are more than welcome as a customer to call dealers and try and get a lower master number.Thinking about the guys that just put a deposit down how long are they going to wait. Also the ones purchased directly from speed they make more profit on compared to the ones sold to dealers. At what point will you only be able to buy one from a dealership? It's not like yo can call can am and order a x3 you have to go through the dealer network. There will be dealers with units and speed customers without cars. This will be interesting.
The Mark-up will only sell while the demand is higher than supply. That is kind of what allows for the Mark-up in the first place.So dealers are going to want 20% over and above MSRP?? I would think a dealer would be same retail price as speed then tag on there additional dealer costs or why even go to a dealership for your car order it direct and if you can order direct cheaper why bother going to a dealer??
My guess is once they have enough cars out there and a large enough dealer network you will only be able to purchase through a dealer.So dealers are going to want 20% over and above MSRP??

My guess is that dealers are paying the original prices offered. It has been mentioned that they have a buy in of 100 units, but I believe these are produced after the pre-sale units. You can still order today and get a low 3000 master number, when they claim with dealer orders that they are over 10,000 and approaching 12K units sold now. Some dealers choose to buy early master numbers to be in the game early. These units will be delivered in order of master number as part of the pre-sales. Sounds like they are including units the dealers maybe contractual obligate to purchase, if Speed can produce them.
Same here...86 on my XX on dry lake only.I don't think the Speed UTV is going to smoke everything else, when it weighs more and they all have speed limiters.
Only people doing over 95mph in a UTV are the desert racers on a dry lake bed. I had my old X3 over 90mph on a dry lake bed several times. That would be the only place I would want to be going that fast.
