Challenger SRT8 set to challenge Z/28
 
Just got this email

What's your opinions?

Me I highly doubt it. Challengers to be are just to big and handle like crap compared to mustangs and camaros.

And I doubt dodge is building the challenger as a track car like GM did the z/28

They have core models so it may be possible. Guess we shall see.

I believe in Giles. Look what they threw together with the SRT Viper TA, just a couple of months after the zr1 whooped it, they forced it out and it was great. This could be interesting

Def nothing wrong with some good ol muscle car competition.

I sure hope so. I mean, what would be better in this world than two incredibly fast pony-cars? Maybe one day Ford will make a car that can challenge the Z/28 too!

I thinks it's cool what dodge is trying to do. Frankly I hope they succeed. That would shut up a bunch of people about the Challenger. I highly doubt they pull it off though. Although, we don't really know how the Z/28 performs for sure other than what GM told us. These are good times to be a Motörhead.

Did they launch the 2013 model yet?

Dodge website shows only 2012 SRT8 models until now !!

It seems that they are working on many changes because I heard about a supercharged version too

Psshhhhh, I will believe it when the car is on the showroom floor. Until then, its a bunch of BS!!!!

....the Dodge Boys are getting back into the fray! It's about time...but..they have their work cut out for them.

Dodge has a long way to go. I had a 2010 Challenger SRT-8. For an everyday driver, it was a great car. As far as a performance car, it left a lot to be desired. Still, I hope Dodge makes some significant improvements to the Challenger.

Bad@ssCamaro 04-16-2013 08:20 AM

Just wondering if the guys @ GM are having a chuckle over this announcement :whistle:
