    Out of all the ships that come to LA, it looks like only New Century 1 is actually in Japan now.

    After combing through the thread referenced above, it appears that it takes 12-13 days for a ship to reach Los Angeles/Long Beach from Japan (and then another 2-3 weeks in port, partially depending on port installed options). I also read a few posts that mentioned 2000 (per port?), 3000, up to 4000-5000 cars per ship (although the mix of cars is unknown).

    The Kentucky Highway is what brought my 2010 over. It ended up in Newark NJ after a stop in Florida after going through the Panama Canal.

    Since production hasn't started you won't have ship names.
    FYI!

    I hope there are no Italian Captains on my ship... I want someone who believes in Women, Children and Cars first! PiPs' also swim... (along with all of the other miraculous attributes...)

    Those cars made it to America; they're the ones that make that clanking noise when the ICE starts up on a chilly morning.

    Do you have a source for that or are you mixing it up with a ship that was full of Mazdas?

    The Cougar Ace nearly sank in the gulf of Alaska when a ships mate accidently flooded the wrong balast tanks. The vessel was towed "cold iron" via tug to Portland, Oregon where the entire cargo of over 5,000 mazda vehicles were discharged. After almost a year and a half Mazda decided due to liability risks to destroy all but approximately 800 vehicles.

    I think its credit more affordable plug-in hybrid on market, cheaper than volt and most efficient.

    New Century 2 left Japan sometime on 2/9/12. It looks like it may be bound for Long Beach. Texas Highway has been at port in Japan for 2 days. If its anything like New Century 2 (which was in port for 2 days), it should be leaving Japan today sometime and may be bound for Long Beach as well.

    The Pyxis Leader which is coming to the NE U.S. (Newark, NJ) apparently left Feb. 7th, 2012. I am not aware though if it will makes stops before Newark. The Kentucky Highway which brought my 2010 over stopped in Florida but honestly it was not there long at all, maybe a day but I think even less!

    Regarding the Mazdas that were destroyed, I posted http://priuschat.com/forums/other-cars/46635-crushing-issue-how-destroy-brand-new-cars.html long ago. Unfortunately, the WSJ video link is dead now.
