You're looking at a minimum 1-2 year wait if you get on a list now -- I think closer to two
If you want to pay a premium, you can buy one from a dealer or maybe owner/speculator at 'market price,' and skip the list
My advice would be to get on a list with a refundable deposit, and keep your eye on the classifieds to see what 'used' cars begin to trade at -- obviously it will take some time for people to sell, but I think more than a few people, even some 'enthusiasts,' will not be able to live with this car. Some cars wil likely come up for sale prior to your list number being called. Nobody knows what resale will ultimately be, but for sure now is not the time to look for a deal. Supply is a trickle, demand is high (in a relative sense). That may change, or it may not. Time will tell. Euro experience suggest that the cars will hold value reasonably well, but American experience may be different
