We have our last communication of the year with the Slingshot Team!
The high notes are that shipments are in full "Go Mode" and they are very busy trying to get all of the Slingshots out to their new homes. The Grey Base models have been ramped up as well.
They also offered some tips for getting your hood up and down with the "Performance Update"Slingshot Team said:Shipments to Fulfil Retailed Vehicles are in Full Swing!
With shipment of initial stocking orders to dealers now complete, we have turned our full attention to shipment of retailed units and pre-sold orders. And, we are now shipping a much higher percentage of Titanium Metallic base models, after our initial shipments skewed towards Slingshot SL models. As we have stated before, we are confident that the majority of the initial pre-sold orders will be delivered by the end of December, with a few of the initial pre-sold orders shipping in early January due to the holidays. Consumers who haven’t already done so are encouraged to place deposits with your local Slingshot dealer. Orders accepted now are expected to ship in February so get your down payment in ASAP!
They gave a big shout out to Pro Performance in Quebec City with a photo of their Holiday Slingshot Display stating the following:Slingshot Team said:Performance Update
We have noticed a few comments with respect to the opening and closing of Slingshot’s hood, and thought we could offer some insights. The hood is held in place by four latches, two at the front corners, and two at the outer rear corners. All four latches are released by a single lever located in the front center hood opening. To release the latches, press the release lever down until you hear a “pop” as the latches release. Then, simultaneously pull the hood forward and up. This motion will take a couple of repetitions before it feels natural. It’s also a good idea to have the parking brake engaged when opening the hood; otherwise you’re likely to pull the vehicle into your shins!
To close the hood, simply grasp the front hood opening and simultaneously lift it up and push towards the vehicle; gravity will take over to drop the hood down into place. Then, give a quick push down by all four latches to ensure that they have locked into place correctly.
Merry Christmas from all of us here at SlingshotForums.com as well as the Slingshot Team at Polaris! We wish you all a happy and healthy Christmas and New Year!Slingshot Team said:Dealership Update
With the holiday season upon us, we wanted to acknowledge the awesome display at Pro Performance located in Quebec City. We think either one of these vehicles would look perfect under the Christmas tree … which one do you prefer?
