I lurk on several Challenger Concept related boards and saw an interesting claim over on dodgechallenger.com about the new challenger being limited production, 2 year run maybe 7000 units per year, designed to compete with the Shelby. It sounds 95% likely BS to me. Even DCXs own poll listed a 6 sp v6 base platform which would never be offered if this were the case. Has anyone here heard anything from a DCX rep (even off the record) or another reliable source that indicates the car may be limited production? All signs I've seen point to long running, high production. Thanks.

Nope, can't see it happening. Dodge already has the Viper as its limited-production car. I'm sure (I'm hoping, at least) that Dodge has seen Ford sell over 100,000 Mustangs a year - over half of those are V6s. That's the exact same formula that Dodge needs to do with the Challenger that's worked for Ford for the last few decades - offer a base V6 model for the secretaries and the rental fleets, then a V8 for us motorheads. Do that and they can't go wrong.

What he said.:D Even if they don't offer a V6 I hope that the base model is a 5.7.:cool:
