That's not an apples to oranges question, meyersnole. I placed my order in November and had many guesses at when the car would be produced. Since you placed your order on 1/21, your process will be different from mine.
However, in a week or two (because production has started) your salesman should be able to give you a tentative date when parts should be pulled for your car...mine were finally pulled on 1/18 and that is the key that leads to a build week an ETA and a VIN.
I have a really good salesman who doesn't BS me and the guy he calls, who places the orders for the dealership, has been pretty straight arrow too. You just have to stay on your sales guy to get you that information.
On the Blue Oval Forum I notice there are others who placed orders around the same time I did, and some even before me, that don't have build weeks or ETA's posted yet. My guess is that both are available to them but their salesmen are not letting them know what they are. They should make a call.
