Dodge//SRT turned the high-performance car world on end in 2014, with the launch of the 707 horsepower 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat. The launch started an amazing trend of supercar performance muscle cars at a price that the average person could afford.

Dodge really needs to send the charger out with a manual transmission.

Not 4 figures? I’d have guessed 999. But that’s close enough. So the new electric muscle is probably going to start at 1001?

909 is plenty.... traction is the limited factor. Make is AWD and that would be awesome.

Good stuff! Hopefully they are working on a street worthy 426 hemi for the next gen cars. I think it goes without saying, but I don't think Challenger and Charger fans are interested in any sort of EV version of the car. I know I'm not.

I have owned 2 modern chargers, 5.7 and 6.4. I would consider myself a fan. I DO want to see ev/ electrification as an option. For 3 reasons
1) not everyone wants 1000 hp. Or can afford it. There are plenty v6 models out there to prove it.
2) in order to have a business case, you need to be able to sell enough to make money. You have you cater to a very wide audience.
3) electric is proving to be very very very fast. 1000+ hp EVs are walking redeyes like they were v6s with two cylinders misfiring.
