OK, they couldn't turn it on(almost did) because of the large crowds around this thing!
Rear store is a lot bigger than it looks you guys will be happy!

Thanks for the info, still planning to take a look at it tomorrow. Not good news hearing that the initial shipments may only be two units. That means most production will likely be all SL's and no base models. Waiting any longer than the end of October means all storage this winter. Not going to pass on my place on the list though.

Yes thanks for sharing and completely agree that only 2 units sucks. As a base model order I am starting to fear mine may be later. :(
I had to run into work for a little bit, but i got some more info later. A little teaser for ya, I pulled out some cash and asked him how much to drive it away right now. He laughed, smiled and said "you dont want this one, the production models make this one look like it came out of the junk yard!":)

That's the kind of news I like to hear. Too bad that there may be limited numbers of Slingshots to start. I can see where Polaris may have under estimated demand but have faith they'll succeed.

On the edge of my seat!
Ok, I will just spit this one out right away....
0-60 "unofficially" ;) low 5sss....(5.1 to be unofficially exact)
Top Speed, most Polaris folks don't even know this number but he was on a ride WELL in excess of 100 mph.

When I asked about future model colors he said the next years model should have at least one more choice....leaning towards a blue but no decisions have been made at this time.
He also commented, that they have seen the additional colors being posted here in the forum and noticed blue was showing more interest than the other colors.

Also, aftermarket companies are "feverishly" trying to produce new products. He has already seen tinted windshields and a custom top design, but was not impressed with the first prototype for the top. They have no doubt that it will be redesigned into something users would like.
Polaris has no intentions of producing any Top for the Slingshot due to legal limitations, but they have left many areas on the Slingshot for aftermarket companies to thrive!

The floor pans appear to be raw rough plastic. True? And great job data collecting!
Thank you!
The floor was a smooth plastic/composite like material. Felt very sturdy, strong and well made, I got in with full weight on 1 foot with no flexing or any concerns.
It was very dirty from the numerous people getting in and out, sorry I had to take a quick picture and get out of the way.

Great information! Thanks for the recon! I must say though, this isn't helping my anticipation levels. As a first in line for a base model, I'm feeling a little bummed on the delivery news! I think I need a drink!

Don't get bummed yet!
To be more precise he hesitated about the answer and flat out said he was not sure what the first colors would be. He then went on to explain that the SL has been more popular so he could see more of them being delivered first.

Another observation I keep thinking about was a small smile he had every time he assured me that delivery would be by the end of October, so the more I think about it they could still be holding out for a little surprise.
It definitely won't be in September but it might even be the beginning of October. He was very clear that Polaris is feeling the exact same way we are. They want these out into the market right now! He gave the timelines I quoted but cautioned that as long as the manufactures keep up there end of the time frames this is where they are at right now.

Thank you Contact Tower for taking the time to post all this info and pics. Of everything you reported, the statement that they were watching and "PAYING ATTENTION" to this forum was the most revealing to me. That means somebody with some Cajonies in Polaris is being allowed to use their brain. Most major corporations are so slow to bend to customer wants and desires. It usually only happens after they see a potential failure or loss of profit. Well done Polaris

The Floor pan looks like it could use a good rubber floor mat. Bet that is an accessory coming out soon. Nice catch on the center console power plug. I had also wondered about a passenger grab rail? They may want something to hang on to during aggressive driving! HA!

Can't wait!
