    F8 Demon would be my choice. Then black, then Octane Red, then....ok I'd take any of them.

    I think a tan interior would look great with F8.

    I have heard credible information about a 2019 Model Demon (2018 release) with 900+ Horsepower.

    I am seeking other insiders to refute or help confirm.

    I guess Tim Allen will have to get another one lol.

    There's going to be some angry people who paid over MSRP if that's the case.

    Not to mention the whole.. limited quantities thing, and the Dealers who order for their show room getting a small advantage over those customers who ordered it & got early builds.

    We cannot discount the power of money... and FCA self-limiting profit due to just choosing not to build something that is desirable doesn't make sense...

    Then they'd have another Hellcat debacle, where there was a lot of pissed off people that overpaid for a standard production model. They can't do that with the Demon; or at least they shouldn't.

    Limited Demon crates is more likely than limiting the number or years in production of the Demon itself, IMO.

    What I heard was that another “Demon” type engine was being developed, and that it would be at least fifty more hp than Demon, maybe as much as 100 more hp (“900+” quote).

    That’s all I have though.

    As far as folks getting angry about overpaying for a Demon? Seriously?

    Any person who paid that much thinking Ralph and Tim were not going to try to put do themselves has not been paying attention. Hellcat came out. People overpaid. Demon came out. People over paid.

    Props to the dealers that sold them without the ridiculous mark up.

    Heck, Hellcat was not even out yet, and we (here on the great Allpar.com) had already heard about something (Demon) bigger and badder coming. Then, before Demon was out, we heard rumblings that something else would be on they way in a couple years.

    This is just the first I have heard from my folks directly about this.

    So whatever rumor going around with a challenger that's more potent than Demon, might not even apply to this generation, basically?

    To be clear, I did not hear about a car. I heard about an engine. Heck, this could be a crate motor. I suspect not though based on the folks I talked (their occupation).

    They should probably refrain from another horsepower increase in the current car... I'm afraid they're going to have a hard time topping it with all the talk of downsized engines in the next generation.
