    At least I had the chance to drive "real" cars. These new fangled gizmos are not what cars are supposed to be. Heck there probably will be an app for your mobile phone to help you drive these new cars.

    I want no part of this goofy new stuff. There is no replacement for displacement will go on my tombstone. :)

    If you sell your car, are you changing your handle?

    Who will you be?
    Inquiring minds want to know which name to put on your tombstone????

    The government and it upcoming regulations are the reason for the move. Chrysler is going to make sure that their performance V8s won't be forgotten the rumors are pointing to the Hellephant going into the Charger and Challenger as a sort of swan song for the current platform

    "Fiat Chrysler's performance brand has ridden the ground-shaking, supercharged V-8 Challenger Hellcat to become the No. 2-selling sports coupe in the U.S."
    How is it possible to financially insure these cars in USA? I know it has al that electric safety nets, esp etc. But you don't gona buy these just for home work drives.

    Sorry. ehm. I have looked at the car insurance here to insure that kind of car. It is even not possible to search for an challenge or even an hellcat.
    How much is it in usa to insure that kind of car with this kind of fun factor/hp?? Because the hp/lb ratio is more of an sport bike than car here. ;)

    If you can't afford the ins you probably can't scrape 65k together for the car...

    For the cost of a new hell cat you can get a driver Hemi 69 RR and that's what I'd rather have.

    I'd rather have an all electric than this Frankenstein shit. Gas or Voltage, pick one.

    Honestly though, what's next after a 1,000 HP SC V8? 1,100? 1,200? They went plaid three years ago with the Demon.

    I am in total agreement though, it just won't be the same. This really is the end of an era.
