Except, this is actually not supposed to be a just a sticker package. Will it be out the price range of the majority of us plebeians? Absolutely. But this is certainly going to be something more special that just some stickers and new tires/rims.
I don't know about this.
Food for thought: Taking the business case approach, how many times have we been told that it's not economically feasible to have to test/recertify a limited production run vehicle? All the crap we've been seeing in these "hurry-up and dislocate your elbow reaching for your wallet" last call editions are mostly paint/trim re-combinations. I wouldn't trust this organization one bit in spending as little as possible to make really stupid people react in separating themselves from their money.
The upside (and hope) would be if we are seeing a truly significant change we would then expect to see a continuation of some sort based on the money spent on recertification. This again would be a vote against the marketeer manipulators because what we will be seeing soon as a Last Call really wouldn't be, would it?

It shouldn’t take much to certify what is essentially a Red Eye with a stage 3 kit and hellephant Supercharger (if it uses that) as it’s already available through Direct Connection (and with warranty). The price of this thing could offset the development just because it’s limited quantity. Talking ACR prices.
There's a huge difference with respect to emissions and liability (think insurance) when it comes to a new vehicle or alternatively post purchase aftermarket support. A manufacturer's warranty is only the expression of what they are willing to accept in terms of how much (if anything) that they would pay if something breaks - and they can calculate how much they can afford to risk in covering a Mopar modified vehicle. However, a change in the way a vehicle breathes and crashes when offered as new is something that a manufacturer has much less financial room to negotiate within.

I get what you're saying regarding the halo effect but when they're (presumably) at the end of the line, what's there to gain? Fully certified Goblin offerings can't be expected to drive Hornet sales.
I think the Godge Doblin "offering" is not going to be so much related to the Durango SRT as it will be to the Little Red Truck, Barracuda, ACR Challenger, etc that were all "coming soon."
Now that the final Last Call vehicle's Ghoulishly appropriate name has been revealed, all I can say to all the name speculators is, "Gobble, Gobble!"
