    F. Sooo this site is really messing me up. I read all of these posts about people and their Hellcats. And I'll admit, I'm a bit jelly. I want to feel the power. Yeah, do I need it. F no. Do I want it. F yes! I just bought my 392 which has a measly 485 HP (lol) back January and I want MOAR! I contacted my sales bro earlier just to see what I can do. What do you all think? Throttle it back or should I just say, you know what, YOLO, let's do this.

    Don't get me wrong, I love my car. I just want honest opinions.

    Ouch... you just bought the 392 in January. Cats are awesome... that's a tough decision... but they bumped the price for the 2016's... my guess there will be another bump for 17. Good luck... I'm sure we'll be hearing more from you.

    Ahhh I know right. I pulled the trigger immediately. Fell in love at the dealership. Heat of the moment. Like that one night stand you don't really regret. Haha. If I can work something out I'll do it. If not Ill cry myself to sleep and be just fine. I think.

    Don't feel bad about a 392 SRT... that is a sweet car as well! ;) It you can get a deal on a Cat go for it. For me I'd wait a year and look at a 17... but that's just me.

    Absolutely I love it. But the pull is strong. I'm very impatient. When will they release the 17? Fall more than likely?

    I'd say it all comes down to $. How much do you have and how much can you lose? If money is not a problem then it's not a hard question trade in and up.

    My vote is rock the 392 car hard at the road course this summer, they do awesome!! Then when see if 2017 brings some upgrades to the Hellcat, trade in in the late fall for a 17, don't sweat the price hike, you get a couple standard features that were options before, and as for the shorter warranty for 16, who gives a dang. its still 60,000 miles that should be plenty. If my car lasts 60,000 I'd be happy.
    Sides that the early 15's are more plagued with problems, a few extra bucks for an ironed out 2017 will be worth it.

    Plus I have 20$ that says the price people pay for the car drops when the 17 ZL1 comes out.
    and a good used one will probly go for less than 55,000 by late this year.

    I went from a 14 r/t 100th anniv edition, if I had a 392 I may have not made the jump. You have a sweet car and "big" if here, you get a fair trade deal. Pull the trigger and you will never turn back!!!!

    I agree prices are going to drop but not because of the new camaro but because of supply/demand curve. There are just more Hellcats being produced and demand is not increasing at the same rate. I already posted I paid 2k under msrp and I know more are out there.
