    Hi all, my name is Mike. I am not a Hellcat owner yet but I'm working my way there. I've been watching this car for over a year now and am excited to see a forum dedicated to it. I currently own a '10 R/T Classic and was considering modifying it with a supercharger and all the upgrades, since the warranty was up, until early last year when Dodge said they were gonna build this.
    This is where I wanted to be, low 11's -high 10's, and drive it to the track. There are less expensive ways to get there but I really didn't want a dedicated racecar car again nor do I want a F-body GM with an LS engine. This will be the most expensive vehicle purchase EVER for me and seems really disproportionate to my current income but my wife and I have positioned ourselves to be able to make stupid purchases occasionally.

    Hello redraptor, and welcome to the forum! Keep a close eye here on the forum, because our fellow members are posting HellCat leads all of the time, especially in the last 3-4 weeks. Good Luck!

    I am torn, every time a Hellcat is purchased off a lot with ADM, not only the dealer profits but also FCA by way of forcing their slow moving inventory on said dealers.
    If this continues, FCA will never build their sold orders!
    As happy as I am for all who get a Hellcat, when this happens I feel we are going backwards.
    Is this forum just a way to advertise and encourage FCA and it's chosen dealers to continue their ways?

    Whoa there cowboy! Who you calling stupid? It's just the popularity of the Hellcat took FCA by surprise. There isn't any other car out here now to compete. Fast forward to 2017 you will see Chevy and Ford playing catch up. There will plenty for everybody. Remember competition improves the breed. Be patient. This is definitely the golden age of muscle car development.

    Thanks everyone. No, haven't pursued it yet. Talked to my local dealer almost a year ago. Said he took a deposit for someone but don't know if he delivered. Just being patient which is how I got my current Challenger. Definitely want an A8 trans as I plan to drag race occasionally. Don't care for leather AND white seats like I have, but, got a deal on it. We'll see.

    I'd say the Tesla D is competing fairly well!
    Did you see the latest 1/4 mile race.
    That all wheel drive is just unfair eh?
    Sorry to ruffle Feathers, but FCA is putting itself and it's large dealers ahead of it's true customers.
    If FCA fails to survive, it will be because of their marketing decisions and poor communication to their customer base.
    I love my Mopars, I will wait for my Hellcat, but FCA has not conducted itself with any sense of honesty or integrity and continues to assist dealers to charge ADM and is willing to stand by and watch all of us with paid deposits to suffer in anguish as yet another lot car appears.
