Per this Edmunds article http://www.edmunds.com/insideline/do/News/articleId=106045, it seems that our buddies at DC are thinking of re-introducing the Challenger. Ohhh, drool-slobber. I was the proud owner of an original 1970 Challenger, and would dearly love to have another car cut from that type of mold.
For my purposes, the closer to the 1970 incarnation the better from a looks perspective, a Hemi would be a MUST as would be a true 3-Pedal 6-Speed manual transmission. If that configuration comes to market, I'd be saying, "Bye-bye BMW... Hello Dodge!"

Caught that in Autoweek. Based on the current platform.
Fear: a repeat of the GTO.
I think DCX design crews this side of the pond have a better chance of getting it right than any GM counterparts, but still, we're talking about a platform designed for some kinda hefty cars thus far. Another 3500lb+ GT car we don't need, IMO, even with a Hemi.
You can push your 3rd pedal, Shipo, and be blessed. Matter of fact, if they put a Challenger name on anything without pedal number 3, I'll scoff and likewise deride, but if they include a slick Benz 7A, I'll take it!

I'm thinking that by 2010, most (if not all) Automatic transmission equipped Chrysler division products will be sporting what are now current Mercedes-Benz transmissions. So, for you, a Hemi Challenger with a Benz 7A (or at least a 6A) is probably a pretty good bet.
Regarding DCX doing a GTO type of goof, geez, I sure as hell hope not. Fortunately, other than the current Charger (which I think should have been called a Polara or Monaco or something like that), the Chrysler division designers seem to be doing a fairly good job these days.

Errr, "Ex-Ricers"... Hmmm, I'm thinking that isn't quite PC enough for the TownHall.
As for me, well, I'll be 53 by then and I'd be more than happy to pick up a Hemi Challenger, assuming of course that it has a good old fashioned (like me) manual transmission. Yeesh, to think that I'll be coming in from the BMW fold while most of the other Challenger owners will be coming in from the slammed Honda fold (assuming that your prognostication is correct). What next?
#6 of 526 no more coupes!

Hmmnnn... I thought DCX often publicy stated they would not make any more 2 door coupes because " the public doesn't want them" while defending the 4 door only Charger. Maybe the success of the new Mustang changed their tune? NEVER say NEVER!!

I agree shipo a 1970 with 3 pedals / 2010 come on with todays technology there's no excuse for this program to take three &1/2 years . how about a 2007 RT 6.1 hemi 6 or 7 speed convertible . I already have the 1970 Dodge challenger 383 4 speed RT convertible and room in the heated garage for the new one bring it on.
