I am extremely excited to be a part of this forum! I just ensured I get the first and only SL in the area by putting down a $5K deposit, couldn't be happier! I'm very much looking forward to forced induction discussions.

Yes I am a Texas Aggie! I'm actually living in Louisiana now. I'm recently relocated due to my career. So I guess I'm an Aggie and a Coon-ass...there's a good joke in there somewhere. I'll keep y'all posted. My dealer had said that of the dealerships that qualify to sell the Slingshot, that most will receive 3 units initially. 1 must be available for demo and stay on the floor at all times and 2 for sale. I think most dealers are keeping one for themselves, so essentially that leaves 1 per dealership. He said delivery is late September. The final price after taxes was around $28K

Did they happen to break out all the fees and taxes for you? I'm curious as to what typical freight and set up fees are going to be.
I haven't got that from my dealer yet either, Should be the same as a big side by side they sell .

If I were you I would go to the other 2 dealers in Dallas and steer far away from the dealer jacking up the prices.
Freight would not be over $400 actual cost.

Welcome to the forum! I am hoping to get details covered in the next few days and maybe a deposit down.

Sorry the other dealers were charging 250.00 more on the freight and 250.00 more on the Install together.
so I saved 500.00 total from the 2 other dealers.
Sorry for the confusion.

Thank you for the greetings!

I was charged $695 and $695 for freight and prep. Tax in my area is 10%. I was told by the GM that freight and setup can differ greatly among dealerships and that a lot of dealers are charging almost double that price. It seems one way or another the SL is adding up to around $28K for most. I still think it's a hell of a deal compared to a Campagna T-Rex, which I was contemplating buying before I discovered the Slingshot.
