    Certain states in the US seem to have more hellcat than others? what do you guys see?
    to get slightly off topic, I do not see a lot of Hellcats around me in Upstate New York

    I'm guessing California since it is probably the largest state by population and also the probability the largest car buff state...

    Resume Speed had a post last year with breakdown for 2015 models.
    I think Texas may have actually been the highest total.
    Per capita I seem to recall it may have been Wyoming. Not a large number
    of Hellcats but a lower population.

    Ontario has the highest number provincially in Canada but they are rarely seen except at meets.

    I can't speak to which state has the most or the least but in my area, there are three Hellcat Challengers and one Hellcat Charger that I know of within a 3 mile
    radius of me. I am probably in the minority here as I'd expect most people to not live within several miles of another Hellcat.

    Anyone else in a similar situation as I am?

    I know there are at least five, not including mine, in the small town where I live. Outside of the 3 mile radius you have but they are less rare here.

    "Highest" owners?

    My bet is Colorado.

    I remember Michigan having a large number especially when factoring in not a huge population. Cal does make most sense due to massive population. I think Texas was number one in sales if I remember. How many of these were out of state buyers is anyone's guess.

    Resume speed's numbers will be the factory ship to point by state (dealership) which may and will be different from where the owners are from and the where the cars reside. The crazy states with high ADMs (CA, NY, FL) drove a lot of buyers to pick them up elsewhere. Also FCA moves to distribute first year builds across the nation rather than to customer orders dorked things up.

    I'm in VA but went to GA to get mine when FCA failed to fill my order. There were early write-ups of people in PA going to AZ while AZ people were going to VA. So production distribution by state will not equal owner locations by state.

    I'm in SoCal. I have only seen one other Hellcat on the road. I doubt that California has the highest number because of the hefty dealer markups that are prevalent around here. Our local Dodge dealer is still adding a markup to the Hellcat.

    I am in So Cal and have seen half a dozen Hellcats since I bought mine in late March. I may have seen more that I didn't know for sure were Hellcats. From the rear, at a distance, it's hard to make a positive I.D. There a gazillion Challengers on the road here. Oddly, I have seen more Hellcats than 392's, either Charger or Challenger.

    Here are the stats for 2015 Challenger Hellcats and my memory was correct: winner is Texas with 621. New York state actually pretty high
    at 269.

    A lot higher production for 2016 but I would imagine similar
    shipment ratio.

    2015 Dodge Hellcat final production totals and stats

    There were as many Hellcat Challengers shipped to California as to all of Canada.
    The good news is that means that I own more than 10% of all 2015 B5 Blue Hellcat
    Challengers shipped to Ontario. :)

    Hey robo. Any idea if the guzzler tax is higher in Cali with the special emmisions in that state. That's a good question in its self

    You must have found a great deal and wanted that car brother.
    That is a trip you never forget and the story will never get old

    I'm close to the DFW (Texas) airport and I've only seen one other Hellcat on the road other than mine so far. They must be all in garages. Of course there has been lots of rain here lately, but since it's turned nice now I expect to see more soon - hopefully... In talking to dealers around the area, they seem to have quite a large allocation and each has had 3 to 6 Cats on their lots, mostly Challengers.
