    I think its inevitable. just like the 80's when emission and fuel regulations cracked down. Went to all 6 bangers. Bound to happen again.

    I believe it with CAFE so soon we could have the last of the V8 Interceptors;)

    I don't believe the story at all. There might be a 4 or 6 cylinder twin turbo available on a Dart or 200. Never on a full size muscle car. And even if there was a twin turbo 6 cylinder, who cares as long as I can roast the tires off the thing and do the 1/4 mile in 11 seconds with a top speed of 200 mph.

    Writing has been on the wall for a while:

    - Audi S5 ditched the V8 and changed to supercharged V6. For now only RS5 comes with a V8.
    - Jaguar ditched the V8 for all the F-Type. For now only the R version comes with a V8.
    - Raptor is now powered by a V6 turbo.
    - The upcoming Ford GT supercar will be powered by a V6 turbo.
    - Rumor has it that the next Shelby GT500 will also be powered by a V6 turbo.

    Can Chrysler be far behind?

    ^^^^^agree x2 ^^^^ I think twin urbo V6's with take the place of any V8 soon in our lifetimes. CAFE standards, and technology, and weight savings.

    Kinda makes sense. Didn't they say the next remake will be a smaller sized platform?

    Bah what do I care, I have the last muscle car I will buy.
    (said THAT before)

    Seriously though, I'm sure there will be a few v8's offered somewhere but they will come at a premium price which will put most people out of the market. Glad I have mine now!

    That article is going to be fuel for the dealership fire of adding ADMs

    When it does happen, a lot of older v8's are going to increase in value...
    I need to buy me another 78 T/A soooooon...

    Also Tim stated at release something along the lines if you missed the first muscle car era, don't miss this one. Of course he says a lot of things

    Eventually 6 cylinders will be non existent too.

    Sadly, all passenger cars will be 4 bangers and batteries.
