    Challenger already axed...

    you heard it here first... 2008 SRT's with the 6.1 Auto... and 2009 SRT's with the 6.4 manual...


    and that's it..... NO 2010 models...

    Sorry to say it, but it is from a very reputable source...

    Talk about short lived but I'd rather have it go out with dignity as opposed to having Chrysler put out V-6 versions to meet CAFE standards like GM is doing with the Camaro.

    Hum... seems like alot of work to rework a platform from a year or 2 just to make a 2 door hotrod and then axe it.... Methinks this may be a production car like the plymouth prowler, made in very short supply just to keep the price up there for a few years.

    Reputable sources have names. No names = just a rumour.

    Now the prices will be like gas

    Already , at this rumor, the markup went up another $10K. Forget about touching the 09.

    The car will not recoup what you'll have to pay for it for at least 35 to 40 years.
