    Maybe it's me, but there seems too be a lot of Plum Challengers and Chargers showing up at dealers. Is this production quantity going to be higher than expected?

    It is one of the most desired and sought after color. Imagine if the disctn pcp instead of sublime.

    Last weeks quick check on Cars.com showed about 327 PCP Hellcats currently at or on their way to the dealers.
    About 250 of them were PCP Challenger HCs remaining were PCP Charger HCs.

    That's a lot of purple people eaters!

    Seems every dealer used allocation was turned into a PCP Hellcat. A little bit of a flood before the PCP spigot was turned off for MY16.

    I would imagine RS could supply a stat on production of PCP. Plus they were going to significantly increase the rate of pruduction in 2016. Would be interesting.

    Good, I like my 2015 A8 Jazz Blue, about 100 of them exist. Less than that with Sepia, way less than that with chrome wheels, I will not be able to lose it at a car show as I get older and more prone to forgetting stuff.

    It's interesting, we had a meet-up with several Hellcat owners yesterday in the Chicagoland area. 7 Hellcats showed up and of the 7, 3 were PCP's and not a single one in Sublime. That's telling me that i think that PCP will be the most popular color this year.

    Great color, to be sure. Popular, to be sure. Legendary, to be sure. Not my first choice, to be sure. Variations/Choices/Opinions make the world go around, so I've been told, to be sure. It's just great to be able to choose a Hellcat...to be sure!

    And I am excited to say that I will be part of the PCP club soon! Sublime was the top color produced last year, looks like Plum Crazy might take it this year. Wonder what high impact color there will be next year? Yellow Jacket, perhaps? Maybe Hemi Orange? We shall see! :D

    Top produced color isn't good for resale values...

    To be honest, I'm not concerned with resale ... I have been drooling over Plum Crazy and B5 Blue for 7 years. Every time I went to purchase/trade, neither of those colors were available. I am just thrilled to get one the colors I have wanted from the beginning. :)

    The increase in production rate coincides almost exactly with the end of PCP.

    Like the Op said - raining purple lately for sure. That extra month (last warning press release) of production really pulled the numbers up. That said I'm with April - not planning on selling mine anyway. Too many personalized BB easter eggs all over it.

    Anyway - if you are curious on the numbers, PLMCRZY is willing to do a preliminary roll-up. See this thread ..

    Preliminary Roll-Up: Plum Crazy Production Numbers

    OP sorry - not trying to hijack - just make folks that are interested aware.

    If they come out with Yellowjackets, there will be one fine PCP Hellcat on the used market.

    The only thing this thread does is prove that there are still thousands of REALLY SMART PEOPLE in this world. Unfortunately there are still too many dumb people in this world that drive (FILL IN THE BLANK)....
