    Without posting a link to the story you read, I would say zero point zero chance it's true. And there is another story on torque that says Dodge will increase hellcat production next model year.

    If I am being selfish I wish this were true. I have been waiting for my dealer to get their allocation for my Hellcat since Sept 2014 (I am first in line for a Challenger HC). They called me on June 24 and said they finally got one and that my car was going to be built. They called back a week later and said the allocation was only for an A8 transmission (I had ordered the M6). Dodge would not allow it to be changed to the M6 for my order. I passed the order off to the next guy in line that actually wants an A8. If only there were no A8s I would have my car being built right now... That car will be a 2015 so the A8 not available for the 2015MY doesn't appear to be correct...

    I tried to build one last night ( on line ) and no option for the A8
    I doubt you can even order a MY15 right now. Maybe if somebody has one in the system but with each day odds are against you.
    Think they will up the price on the A8 option for MY16?

    Fact:
    The A8 never left... each and every day that the plant is running, they are building A8 Challengers... and while the A8/M6 percentage may vary, the production of A8 models will continue for the rest of the model year, and into the 2016 model year and beyond...

    In my opinion....Torque News is a hackjob of a site on a good day.

    Multiple ads all over and limited views if we don't sign up?

    [​IMG]

    Then they try and charge us when the stories we read there are usually lifted from Allpar or this forum or other forums to begin with?

    yeah - don't think so Torque News.

    I'll stick with sites that don't charge me for stories they get from the sites I already visit.
