    If Dodge does this....I will switch from being a GM guy to Mopar. Innovation. This is what has been lost...too much focus groups and not rocking the boat. I didn't initially agree with Fiat and what they did to my Viper, but this will get me onboard. I hate the way GM treats it's customers by not wanting the Camaro to outrun the Vette and so forth. They are 2 totally different platforms and cars I remember when they had the balls to release the Grand National, GMC Typhoon, Cyclone which outran the Vette. Mopar showing balls in a balless industry. Now let's see how great the GTR would compete on an even playing field. It would come down to engines and not platforms. Kudos to Fiat.

      That is no longer the case since the 5th. generation Z28 records better laps than the current Sting Ray. Also, the Cadillac V Series seems to be favored over the Vetts/ZO6 from some critics. Back then, since you are right and wrong in some cases, GM heavily protected the Vette by limiting the Grand National, GMC Typhoon and Cyclone production cycle. For as the Viper, FCA should had made them more user friendly compared to the Vette and GT-R. The Viper will soon be irrelevant thanks to the FCA's neglect on the Viper which few too little people want.

    Please don't call it a GT ! Call it a Challenger T/A or change the look completely and call it an AAR Cuda' . GT? Really !?!? Totally unoriginal and out of place on a mopar.
