    Finally, it looks as if the supply is higher than the demand and lots of cars, even the A8 are available for MSRP, from what I'm seeing the craze is over and you may even see discounts by 2016MY end....

    Not if you Sublime green...2 on eBay, one on cars.com. None on car gurus....still a very rare and desirable car....all of them have an ADM.

    they are still bringing way over MSRP in the West--there has always been dealers who sold for MSRP all along--I doubt the sky is falling--I remember people saying that with GT Fords--I passed on one and it turned out to be a BIG mistake..
    there will be ebb and flow with seasonality--but they won't go cheap ever.. that would be a disaster for all of us!!

    While a nice color it's the second most produced in 2015 behind black.

    If you look around there are cars dealers are selling at MSRP, even the A8 purple,you have to be willing to travel sometimes, everyone knew the green would be desirable when production stopped, but there are still deals to be made if you look..

    I agree that this is the year the Hellcat prices normalize. It is no longer the norm to see cars with an ADM selling quickly. There are MSRP cars which are sitting for days before being bought, which is something that wasn't happening a year ago. If FCA follows through with the ramped-up production for 2016, there will be plenty of cars available for below MSRP.

    A family member of mine told me that dodge is going through measures to keep up the hype/exclusiveness. Which could really be anything from a media blitz or a production slowdown. As it is now I'm seeing cars sit on lots for weeks granted the north east doesn't sell many cars like this in the winter months.

    I will drive my car about 3k-5k a year and keep it for a long while bottom line I love this car and don't care all that much if it doesn't become collectible. Drive it and love it.

    I have saw cars advertised for MSRP on the internet, in fact, even on this site leads are posted.

    However, in the Knoxville, TN area, if you buy local, you're going to get gouged! At least from what
    I've saw while looking for my current car and the local dealers are asking 10K+ above sticker. The
    best deal that I've heard of was a guy with a black Challenger Hellcat that told me he got it for $6600.00
    above MSRP.

    The worst deal that I'm aware of in my area is a fellow, also with a black Challenger Hellcat that gave
    $90,000.00 out the door. So I'm not sure how much above sticker that is because it included taxes etc.
    but it's well above sticker so the ADM really depends on the area where you live, the willingness of the
    market to accept above sticker prices and the dealers greed factor.

    I think prices are "normalizing" because they increased MSRP between the 2015 and 2016. A 2016 at invoice price is a 2015 at MSRP.

    Brett M.....Thanks for the post. I've got a friend that is interested in a Charger Hellcat. I've not saw one on a lot
    for sale here but thanks to this forum I know that a local father and son have a Challenger and a Charger both
    in Hellcat trim.

    I'll share your info with my buddy. I'm not sure what color he wants but at lest he'll have an option other than
    waiting on the dealer here in Knoxville that has him strung out and paying 11K above MSRP!
