I am not the definitive expert.
But I can tell you from my first hand perspective in the last week, since I got my new to me, 2015 Scat Pack M6. The car rides fantastic. Its easy to get in and out of. The backup camera is tremendously useful. The heating and cooling features work really well, im a little fluffy so I appreciate the cooled seats and the heated steering wheel and seats for cool cold mornings.
I was looking for an exotic, really liked the California, unfortunately no manual option killed interest at this point, and the price point was four times as much, I want to do other things besides just mess around with a car. A 991 moved to the foerfront, unfortunately for me, what you get for 50 to 75 just didn't seem like a fair trade.
So I started looking at Shelby's and then Camaro's and then down to GT's. Really hard for middle aged guy with kids and bad knees and hips and ankles to contort to getting in and out of. Already have an old F body and an CETA vert, both auto's. The seemed kinda cheap on the inside as well.
I stumbled across the Challenger. I drove a Plum Crazy Purple 2019 M6 with the 5.7. Being the heavy car the Challenger is, it is no where as quick or engaging to me with the 5.7 as my LS1 is, it's probably weight related, but just didn't make me giggle. I instantly liked the transmission, cabin quality and ride of the car. This is a very live able muscle/pony car.
The 6.4 just suites my expectation. The car pops burbles breaks loose on command, otherwise it's really streetable if you drive like a normal person. BTW, that's kinda hard cause the car is constantly whispering … GO GO GO.
I travel almost daily, I would love to drive this every day.
