SpaceX teams have assembled Starship SN4 in about 2 weeks and it is on the test stand. SpaceX is actively building the next Starship, SN5.
There will be pressure tests that caused problems for the last two prototypes. If the pressure tests are successful then there will be a 150-meter test and then a higher altitude test.
