No real news, but I just received an email directly from Nissan and copied into my dealer confirming my proto allocation. For those that have not seen the letter I have attached it below.

I was told by my dealer that the car I ordered was in the country and it is likely only a few weeks away.

Nice to have something official from Nissan as I have only had dealer confirmation till this date.

Has everyone else received an email such as this for those that have confirmed proto allocations?

Not seeing a VIN number or confirmation that it's even in the country / off the production line, in that email.
(I was also told my car was weeks away, until this morning)
What a shit show.

EDIT: I have the same email as of a few minutes ago.

Great news mate! How did you manage to get the manual?
Just a bit whinging 😅

Congrats man! So glad that you'll get the manual you were after.

I didn't want to go on about it but settling for an automatic through no fault of your own was crappy.
Cheers mate, it was a compromise, no doubt. The infotainment was one thing, the transmission quite another. But in all seriousness, I was honesty coming around to the idea of an auto just because I am looking at relocating to Perth in a few years.

But seriously, I think the orders are so up in the air still with people bailing out that anything is up for grabs. I'd call your dude - or simply put it to them when they call you. You might get a nice surprise 😉

Yeah I just sent an email asking if it was possible to keep an eye out for me, I’m really bummed out with the Auto, I’d honestly pay extra just to get manual at this point.

In saying that I really think Proto should have only come in manual, seems like the enthusiasts choice of model. Z only really makes sense in manual so I think it’s a bit silly.

True, true @Fontana

Regarding old mate with the 2023 Proto though, that's sketchy dude.

The build date on my dealer supplied info is June 2022 Week 3...

Yeah got the same email, plus details on my vehicle. Not currently on the water, but expected delivery mid-september.

Good news, got the manual! 🥰
Fantastic…as you should being you were ahead of so many others.
Really happy for you
Now when you see your dealer, can you say…well because I’m not interested in the Coupe, can you give me any goss about it, and let us know if they are holding onto secrets 🤣

@Beard …I’m just gonna say what everyone is thinking, and really hope you don’t take it the wrong way.
But are you sure your dealer knows what they are talking about and you have a car allocated.
With all the other guys getting official emails it seems really suss, I’m guessing that Nissan has finally completed allocating the Protos and emailed everyone at the same time…the guys who got the emails are in different states with different dealers, it would be really random if they are not sending out the same email to all successful Proto orders at the same time .
I hope I’m wrong …really I do, but something just feels off

So jelly seeing all the proto confirms being posted on FB now :(
Me too…I could have been one, and to be honest had I known the wait was going to be this long…and that the coupes would be even longer, I probably would have gone the proto.
God knows how long we have to wait for the coupes 😔😖
