So if Dodge has this at SEMA - will the Z28 be soon to follow?

I wonder if this Challenger SRT-10 will ever come to production and if it does will the Z28 follow?

I'm not a big fan of the Challenger, but that thing is down right cool.

with a car like that (if it actually sees production) the General would almost have no choice... especially if the Gen V small block is ready to go.

BUT-- if we ain't careful, this could start more unnecessary Z28 speculation.

Im reallly interested in this talk bout the merger between GM and Chrysler, and what happens to these monsters if it does go through.

not another z28 discussion

that srt10 is pretty slick though. the only thing dodge has going for them is that viper and they want to cram that motor in whatever they can before they go under.

Not gonna happen! The price they would have to charge would put it into ZO6 territory! The Viper will be gone and so will the V10 with it....it has no technology in it and is to much of a gas guzzler to be able to use anywhere else...like trucks. Hmmm...wasn't there a V10 in there trucks before???

The Z28 is not the equivalent of a ZR1. Why would a Z28 ever compete with this? If anything, this is a fresh competitor of the Z06. The Z06 would still win with ease.

Dodge policy does not determine Chevy policy. Just because Dodge blows all of its money on a car that won't make production doesn't mean that GM has to blow all of its money on a car that won't make production any time soon as well.

I was just seeing what everyone thought. I think the dodge would never come to production and I am more than happy with the new SS to replace my 98' SS.

Tell me if i'm wrong, but isn't the LS3 a small block?
