Will the hellcat be limited in numbers produced, or will they build as many as they can sell??

So new front, rear, hood, and panels. Rear panels for wider tires?

I just hope that the target numbers are not too watered down once it hits production.

All my life I thought air was free, until I bought a bag of chips...

I don't think they will flood the market with them, but they will have to sell enough to cover all of the R&D expense. Haven't seen any exact numbers yet, but I would say "thousands" (as opposed to something like a one-time run of a thousand or two).

That wouldn't surprise me (for the Hellcat). The target numbers I have seen so far are jaw-dropping.
Jaw dropping for you ????

I have goose bumps!!

Ive "heard" 680 HP. Im not sure I believe that the Challenger is getting a 210 HP jump from the current 470 hp, but I guess time will tell. Im thinking more like around 620 - 640

I thought Sergio wanted a more "European" looking car? How did we win THAT battle? If it looks even more like a Challenger with a more pronounced (sharper and lower) bodyline and like a '71 front and rear, you guys are going to seriously damage my bank account.

First, thank you Resume Speed for the information!

Maybe the '71 pic and the reference to larger tires could mean more "flaring" of the wheel openings?

Also, is it now appropriate to say the spy shots with the Cuda-look grille was not accurate for the appearance of the actual 2015 Challenger?

Subscribed with enthusiasm. A new challenger interior, a' la' Charger, might keep in an R/T or SRT. Otherwise it's back to a default 300C if they don't alter it's current style dramatically.

Respectfully,
