    Man, I have had my PCP Hellcat in NorCal area for past 2 weeks. I am still amazed at the positive reactions up here. I think it is pretty rare here still.

    I also have another nice car, a Porsche 911 GT3.... I might as well be driving a Camry when I drive the Porsche. You would get the occasional thumbs up.

    But in the Hellcat, thumbs up, honking, strangers just coming up and chatting....

    Where are most of the Hellcats?? Are they common anywhere?

    Who is in NorCal??

    It seems that I like rare colors. The GT3 is in Fashion Grey, 1 of 10 in The US. I know you know about PCP :)

    Nice rides. While the Porsche is awesome to many people they all look the same.

    The Hellcat in a high impact color just sticks out like a sore thumb LOL.

    Love the color on the GT3 too!!!

    So they made about 10000 or so Hellcat's .divided by 50 that's about 200 per state if it was even but you would think not. So 200 in say Connecticut you would see them more then 200 in a big state like Texas. That's if each state gat the same which I doubt. On top of that I bet half the Hellcat's made are not even being driven or just on weekends. How many are daily driven? If you say half that would be 100 per state. So in a state like California you wouldn't see many. By the way I never seen the Porsche you posted at all in south Carolina while I've seen a number of Hellcat's. Then again I never really looked for Porsche any way.

    T-Bone......That GT3 is amazing!! Don't be put off because John Q Public doesn't recognize what a special car it is. I absolutely love that color.....Talk about stealth! Other than the rear wing....you're flying under the visual radar versus the PCP Hellcat.

    Enjoy both of your vehicles.....You've got a couple of very special ones there.

    Here in NY a Porsche is like a VW Bug and draws no attention and the same for BMW, Camaro, Mustang, Vette and most others.

    The 2015 Charger SRT 392 I owned last year drew so much attention that my wife stopped driving it.

    Very Nice T Bone... My son's dream car is the GT3... But he likes all Porsche and will probably get a 997 911 Turbo. Me I'm a Mopar guy and love the classic iron... But I gotta tell yeah the Hellcat is a special car... as you know. I hope I can post a picture like that with my sons car someday. He's getting pretty close just gotta find the right one. ;)

    Hellcats with impact colors are not for shrinking violets or someone who wants to blend in. My TorRed gets almost as much attention as my radioactive yellow Buick GSX did. I don't feel as bad about selling it now. Enjoy the Plumb.

    Nice! Love the GT3, too. I think you have a similar philosophy to me regarding performance cars: carry one big hammer and one sharp knife :D

    We have a pretty active Challenger family here in NorCal; you can find us at NorCalChallengers.com or on Facebook (same name). There's also South Bay Challengers for drivers closer to silicon valley; they're also on Facebook. The NCC event calendar is fairly well populated with a variety of activities throughout the year (heads-up: club night at Sac Raceway drags on May 4th!)

    Hope to meet you sometime; PM me if you have any questions.

    Nice cars T Bone. I'm about 3 hours north of the Bay Area on the 101. If you head north up the Redwood coast someday hit me up:):):).
