    "...the number of Hellcats will necessarily be tied to how many fuel-efficient cars Fiat can sell as part of maintaining a federally mandated overall U.S. fleet fuel economy that exceeds 35 mpg by 2016. Translation: It takes a swarm of gas-sipping Fiat 500s to make just one Hellcat..."

    CAFE will not have any bearing on how many Hellcats they will build. A "swarm" of 500's = 1 Hellcat??? I guess so, IF a "swarm" is defined as a couple. Someone needs to do some more research on the CAFE requirements.


    "By the time Chrysler adds the expected 300C, Grand Cherokee, and Ram truck to its list of Hellcat recipients.."


    News to me that all those vehicles are upcoming Hellcat recipients... for starters, the 300C standard SRT has been cancelled for North America.


    "...it's clear that although 1,200 isn't a hard number, it's a real close guess. In fact, actual production could be less than 1,200 if thrifty cars don't sell well..."

    A real close guess??? Geez, they've already built more than 600, what, are they going to stop production in a few weeks when they hit 1200??? Seriously??
