Waiting for the local dealership to have one in their showroom. So I can take a seat in it. :)
Drove my neon until it was killed in a flood.

Love the last sentence!
Dodge's suspension has been softened a bit compared with the Alfa, according to chief engineer Matt Liddane. "We've taken a little edge off it," Liddane says. "It's a blast to toss around." We'll expect more, of course, so count on Dodge to unveil a turbo 2.4 SRT4 within a year of the new Dart's second-quarter launch.

That is just a quote from Motor Trend. I would not rely on their words of it coming so soon.

Keep in mind, they called the Volt COTY.

Considering what the Dodge rep pretty much told me at the show, the early release date wouldn't surprise me.

It's the right time for a *40*MPG car, but not for a pocket rocket. One would think they would build up sales and desire from the Base-R/T trim before a launch of anything upgraded. Who knows, maybe in a year this car is recalled for a dozen problems. Going back to the Volt, it was supposed to have saved the world. Or something like that.


I hate GM.


Gramps, if you spoke to someone at the autoshow I'm sure they just read to you whatever was written on their script.

The Dart looks much better in real life, but I don't know why it feels as though there is something missing.

Hmmm some of those Mopar parts look kinda familiar (wing, side sills, and the diffuser) lol. Maybe I should buy some lottery tickets. [-o<

When I get home I'll pm you a public relations number for Chrysler. Perhaps ask for the voice mail of the other people you emailed.

:shock: If the Dart SRT-4 has a WRX Sti price but is only FWD, it will be as big a failure as the Caliber SRT-4 ... more "Fiat 500 strategy" :banghead:

Good Golly Miss Molly... While my NSRT will always be first in my heart, I do like the advance pics of that SY DSRT. Of course, I'm still catching my breath after looking at the Mopar Dart STS pics from Tuesday! :shock:

i could live with the GTS specs, def better than the r/t. Hope the srt version actually boasts 300 hp, that will get everyones attention. the way i read it though its suppose to be LESS than the price of an sti

IIRC the roof on the GTS 210 is flat black, not carbon fiber.

Looks like CF there. Maybe just DiNoc?
If I could just figure out how to meld the Outback and the Neon into one car...
