Shaggy, I was talking more about the ZL1. The Challenger is okay. It doesn't fall flat on it's face, and the Hellcat has certainly brought some refreshment to the car, but it definitely needs a diet :)

Look at what laptimes? Which Challenger has good laptimes?

@Flabernat: I know, Mopar haters say "The Dodge Challenger is too heavy, it's slow, it handles like crap! Blah blah blah blah!" I'm like "Look at the lap times, dummy!" SMH

@ saxy
I'd say any car that's over 4000lbs(aka ZL1) but can lap LagunaSeca faster than a (991)911 Carrera S is pretty agile.
It is heavy, but that's never stopped it from putting down some very impressive numbers... And from what I understand the next-gen Camaro is going on a(much needed) diet.

Also, I wonder what a stripped out Z/28-like version of the Challenger would be like... :)

I think Dodge built a lot of capacity into this "built motor." I imagine the muscle wars will continue. http://www.torquenews.com/106/2015-dodge-challenger-srt-hellcat-underrated-707hp

Since it debuted and shattered people's expectations on road courses. Or have you not read the reviews and gandered at the instrument testing data? You know, the reviews that praise its ability to follow a racing line, take transitions like a champ and handle like it weighs several hundred pounds less than it really does. You don't have to look hard; virtually every review of the ZL1 says as much.

Also, a hot day wouldn't do the Z/28 any favors. Do you know what happens to r-compound tires when it gets too hot? They get oily and slick, and have a nasty habit of breaking traction at the worst possible moments with no warning at all, then suddenly sticking like glue again, often in the middle of a spin, causing you to over-correct right into another spin. Or a wall. Or another car. Or all of the above, if you're really unlucky. Basically, r-comps on a hot day can turn any car into an old Viper.

The more you know.

According to the rumor mill, the next Shelby/SVT Super 'Stang could be packing 750 horses under the hood.

Judging by the article ZL1 is just better engineered product, and looks to be the better buy. Some people are choosing cars depending on how it looks. Someone prefers Camaro, someone - Challenger, it's a mere of taste. I think the most advertising factor of Hellcat is it's 700 hp, and it definately will cut part of ZL1 sales, but it won't last long, there will be more powerful muscles soon.

When was the fat ZL1 ever "agile" ? Z28, maybe, on a hot dry day.

Much as I expected, the Challenger is still still a through-and-through musclecar, while the Camaro has evolved into a legitimate sports car. Even with the new suspension goodies and the huge brakes, the laws of physics will not be denied, and a fat ballerina is still fat, no matter how well she moves. The Challenger may be decently agile for its size, but the ZL1 is just agile, period.

That said, the Hellcat is just sexy to look at, and, as I've said before, has hands down the best interior of any musclecar, ever. However, I think the street presence thing was a little unfair. For one, Camaros are a LOT more common than Challengers on the road, in any trim level. So when you see one, it's a bit more of an event. So it's not that GM has "forgotten" how to make a striking car(*ahem*Stingray), it's that the Camaro has been EVERYWHERE since it's debut, and has changed very little over the years. It was the talk of the town when it first came out, but now that they're as common as a Prius on the road, it's kinda "meh". And it doesn't help that GM doesn't offer the kind of bright, borderline obnoxious color choices that Dodge does. When was the last time you saw a Camaro with a neon green paint job that wasn't custom?

@hemi, you can't submit another sites content as an article here. But you can refer to another article and use another article as basis for your own - like writing a comment on a comparative test that was published in a magazine.

I mentioned earlier that comparing the Cayman to a Hellcat is like comparing a hammer to a wrench. But in a power comparison, there is NO comparison. Latest Motor Trend article, Q: "At our test track, the Cayman exceeded expectations. A faultless and easy-to-use launch control (press Sport Plus and both pedals, then release the brake) propels the Cayman to 60 mph in 4.2 seconds and past the quarter mile in 12.7 seconds at 109.7 mph."

Those straight line numbers are EXACTLY THE SAME as recent runs in my 6.4L, NA, SRT. The Cayman is clearly the better performing car, because it can equal my SRT in a Drag Race, but destroy it on a curvy track. Guess what? I knew this when I bought it. People who want Cayman's will certainly buy them. Personally, I'd rather drop $35K on a stock Subaru and equal the Cayman...which to me is a compromise car....the equivalent of an "RT Challenger." A "so-so" kind cool car. But a Hellcat is a different story altogether. There is NO comparison between the two WRT acceleration and top speed....or COOLNESS. The Caymen ain't as cool. To be cool in a Porsche you need at least a 911 ;)(IMO...which is severely flawed). Like I said earlier, if we bought cars "purely on performance," we'd all buy used/modified "ricers." People actually purchase "Boxters." I wouldn't. I've seen tuned Honda Accords that would crush them.

We can all agree its not a sportscar, Nobody should argue that, Everything about a car is subjective, Including handling and precision, Some may say a 1970 Challenger handles better then a Cayman GTS, Its both true and not true, It all depends on our taste in handling abilitys and styles, What handles good and what doesnt? I dont think theres a wrong answer in that.

Making a car lighter does not mean better handling, Everything goes into play, Hell it could be worse(Nissan Statement lol) Ive been able to blast around in a Cayman, Not this new one, And i did like its handling, But i prefer more of a Tvr approach when it comes to handling, But thats my taste in handling.

We all know more hp doesnt mean better or better drivers car, And what a family buys, Isnt the same for everyone.

Just watched the Jay Leno piece https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MWMjR3r-nsI.

That car is a monster - street legal dragster. Hard to grasp the fact that it comes with such an angry monster of an engine from factory, and with factory warranty...

i'm sorry. if you actually have a family, then the hellcat will be the 2nd car, and the main car will be some SUV or something cuz popping to the shops is just too much of a hassle, let alone putting a baby seat in the back seat.

Well i think Cayman is more like a second or third car in the garage.

I doubt that there is enought guys that have no family and they need only one car and that car is Cayman.

Hellcat somehow can be the only car in the family, it is comfortable, big, You can easyly can carry childerns in it or some laguage.

Cayman is more of a toy, Challenger - well just look at it. It look much better to me. And it is faster and more practical in real life.
As a car to live with it if it is only one car - I chose Challenger.
As a second - toy car to drive in weekend on twisty roads - Well Hellcat isnt bad at this either. Maybe it is not so much finese car at that taks, but, it could get job done in good fashion. But not so spectacular as Cayman.

But if im honest - Well Hellcat is closer to my perdonal preferences - its the Man's car that erupt with a strong badass attitude.
Cayaman - in eyes of many - its a poorsman 911. Its not Caymans fault, it Porsche fault, who chose to put it under 911 for all costs.

But even Hellcat vs 911 - maybe 911 is a better sports car, but still, Hellcat is the one i would chose fo some reasons.

I like the Cayman and the Hellcat. But comparing the 2 is like comparing a hammer against a wrench. I don't think anyone believes a Hellcat is a sports car. Likewise, the Cayman is not a GT cruiser. People buy both types for lots of reasons. If all they cared about was best performance for $60-$70K, they would get a used ricer and spend $30K on performance mods and beat either car.

Just cuz something is mid engined and light doesn't mean it's "well balanced" The Cayman IS the best balanced sports car, also probably the closest to a touring car for the exception of the gt3.
If you are going to compare numbers only, I doubt the hellcat is any slower than a Aston DBS. Guess nobody is going to pick an Aston over a hellcat

@Br2+: i didn't say that muscle car is negative i just said its not a sportscar.

Lighter means the handling is more fun, the Cayman will change direction like very few cars can helped by the mid-engine layout. But hey, don't take my word for it, go and drive one. Completely different league from the Hellcat. Better? Yes I think so if you judge objectively. But cars are more about taste and individual wishes than objective arguments.. So the buyer could have reasons for wanting a 5m long 4 seater with 700+/HP instead of a real sportscar.. And that's fine, just don't assume a lot of HP makes this a true drivers car... Its big, heavy and powerful, not light nimble and as sharp as a surgeons knife

Because a car is lighter, And has a different engine placement is a reason to pick a car over the other? And/or is better? lol

And how many Cayman or Challenger owners are going to the track exactly?..Nicer materails yes, As it should be from a luxury company, And being a Muscle car is a negative? lol

@BR2+:

Cant see why anyone would pick a Cayman.



Really? Maybe because its 500kg lighter, mid-engined with the sweetest balance, will do track day's and slaughter a 2 tonne car yet not break down, has nicer materials and its a real sportscar not a big fat (though very fast) muscle car?

1/4 mile in 11.2 seconds according to the CEO in the Jay Leno Garage video.. Somehow i can't add that time..
