    Out of curiosity, I was looking to see if any Hellcats were on Ebay. To my surprise, I see 52 Hellcats on Ebay. 44 Challengers and 8 Chargers. Almost all are used with under 1,000 miles. Considering that there are ~3,000 Hellcats out there, that is a large chunk of people who bought the car and now are tired of it. Do people really buy a $70,000 car for 5 months and sell it? Were they just opportunists looking to make a quick buck? Or maybe they couldn't afford them? I doubt it is because they don't like the car.

    I'm just guessing but I'd bet some people just put them out there thinking that *if* somebody is willing to pay $x (insert your number here) then they will sell it otherwise they are happy to keep it.

    Who knows...

    Over 6000 out there now and most likely trying to make a buck. Mine won't be on eBay;)

    I kept mine for less than 2 weeks and sold it. I know a couple of people who have sold theirs within the first few months as well. It happens with every type of car.

    I can guess why, just trying to make a few bucks. Usually money or sex or the motifs.

    Will get one in a few years when the newness wears off of them. I did not like it enough to want to keep it.

    Seems like a lot of effort and investment to make not that much money.

    I monitor the market about every day and 99% of the Hellcats on ebay are opportunists.

    I ended up buying my Hellcat from a guy that listed it on Ebay and didn't sell it there. Just because there are a bunch of them listed that didn't sell, doesn't mean that the seller is greedy. If you're looking for one, reach out to the sellers and see what kind of deal you can make outside of Ebay/Paypal. I was looking for a Pitch black, A8, black leather, Nav Challenger and that's exactly what I bought. They're out there guys...

    I'm not looking for one, I have one - I was just on ebay checking it out. I really want a die cast 1:43 scale Hellcat for my Lionel Trains layout.

    a coworkers friend bought a hellcat, did a long brake stand/burnout, drove it for a week and then sold it to another dealer. But I think he buys a new car about every month, beats the hell out of it and trades it in

    Looks like a few Dodge Dealerships are on the bandwagon too. I guess it only takes 1 sucker to pull the trigger on the Buy It Now
