In a recent post about the 2009 Dodge Challenger SE, KickingTires quotes director of Dodge brand marketing, Mike Accavitti, saying that there will be no convertible version of the reborn muscle car in Dodge showrooms. Apparently the platform would require too much additional hardware to handle the extra flex from cutting the roof off, and the added weight would push the car too far into the Sumo class. And that would be with just a simple manual soft-top, not one of them there new-fangled retractable hardtops that are the top du jour for convertible buyers. There's also the issue of cost and the fact that Dodge's market analysis seems to indicate there isn't a huge market for them. We understand the reasoning and know that even the coupes are going to be low-volume, but we would humbly like to suggest a limited run of SRT-8 convertibles at double the coupe's asking price. Say 20 or so. Buyers will pay twice the sticker price at least and mothball them immediately so they can be exhumed in 2050 and be the '71 Hemi 'Cuda convertible equivalents of their day.

lol that is a good looking vert...id buy one...err maybe not.

AirGoya 10-09-2008 08:21 PM

I'm sorry but that is one of the dullest looking cars from the side. I like the front grille, its mean. But the side is so boring.

TonytheTiger 10-09-2008 08:27 PM

Honestly That car does looks good but its over priced at 40K

btw the camaro looks very similar to the challenger from the side so might wanna look twice.

playhard67 10-09-2008 09:31 PM

seen them on the lots. But, IMO it is a nice looking car. Maybe a 7 on a scale of 1 to 10. The new 'Maro is a 12.

It proved my point against the guy who said the challenger was terrible from the side...they both look exactly the same.

and dont tell me some stupid gills make a difference....unless....just maybe...that new announcement monday is that THE CAMARO CAN BE DRIVEN UNDERWATER! ZOMG FIRST FIRST FIRST!!!

headpunter 10-09-2008 11:54 PM

there are NO creases on the side of the challenger leaving it looking round and bland.

i will give you the fact that the current challenger looks much better then the original.

hehehe...ironically, I posted that with the intent to prove that they look totally DIFFERENT from the sides. The Camaro has this poised, aggressive stance...and the Challenger sort of droops at the ends like a wet noodle. :bellyroll:

not really they both look aggressive... but the challenger has natural lines and doesnt rely on gills and bulgy fenders too look good. look back to the famous ebodies....no gills no bulgy fenders....straight up mean....

they both look good but I like the natural lines the chally gives off instead of the camaro. I think the camaro has too much on the side for you to appreciate the car.


IMO

CaptianSam 10-10-2008 12:06 AM

CaptianSam 10-10-2008 12:13 AM

Woah! IMO, big difference there. Look how the back end of the Chally just kind of slopes down...makes it look even larger..and with a higher roof. hrm...
