I Special Ordered my SportCross on October 20, 2003. According to the ordering website, it was to be produced in December 2003. The website for ordering said that 30 days should be allowed for both production and shipment. I talked to the salesmanager today and he said the car had arrived in port, Newark, on January 5th and it should be delivered to the dealership next week!! I am very happy with the surprise early arrival. So, it is going to work out to be less than three months from order to delivery. Better than some stories I have read and not bad for a car that had to be built to my specs.
