IIRC going back to the start there was never a release date only "maybe in Dec". March was also kicked around.
Going into production isnt so easy. After its OK'd you gotta bring a lot off parts to the right places train & start. Even
the box & box art.

Early release is risky. Good example was the Studebaker Avanti. A 4 passenger sporty car that would "SAVE" studebaker.
The supercharged model was the fastest production car in the world for a few years. Everyone wanted & orders poured
in for this Vette killer. But there were problems like rear windows popping out at abt 130 mph. Production slowed to a
crawl & everyone wanted there money back. Most went on to get Vettes. By the time all the bugs were fixed nobody
wanted them anymore. IIRC only a little more than 4000 were made in less than 2 yrs.
For the youngn's especially gear heads there is lots on U tube about them. Most under 60 dont even know about them
or Studebaker.

Off topic I know, so sorry to the others but I had to say- Thanks for that. Never heard of them- googled the name, pictures popped up- and sure enough I can see a Vette resemblance.

Off to read more now. Thanks again.

My off topic tidbit to you- If you've never heard of it, read up on the VW Phaeton. Incredible car, incredible engineering. Pennies on the dollar price on the used market. We have owned 4 in my family now.

Seems like the waiting is over:rofl: a guy on a U K Forum has been promised delivery on 17th of December 2017:pinnochio.

But then again it could be true, I will be scanning the sky looking for the parachutes.

I generally dont put stock in 3rd party websites, I have noticed over the years that this particular site has proven mostly reliable in it's "scoops" of unreleased information.

Take what I'm posting with a grain of salt. I spoke with my sales rep today who is with, what is perhaps the largest retailer in the continental USA. I have been purchasing from this company and sales rep for over 15 years. For what's it's worth, he told me he spoke with ML and was told there was a slight possibility they would be receiving them by Christmas. However, the reality is, it will most likely be after the first of the year.

Talked with my dealer 12/11/17 and was told, very few machines would be out in December. Minelab is telling him January / February now.

I was told the machine is ready....... they are just still working on the final programing. This could change what we get from the prototype being used........ obviously it could make some happy and others not so happy depending on which area their concept is. Possibly a few will be put in the field early....... are they just testing the water so to speak and will it be a good thing to get the early models vs a final product? Again, that may change depending on their VISION for the machine.

Build it they will come, ' Faith is the substance of things hoped for , the evidence of things not seen" always ask,seek ,and knock, because if we don't nothing happens - if my opinions worth anything then I agree that Minelab should give a concrete answer as to when it will definitely be available
