Overpaying will kill value, so here are a couple of options for the shopper who wants the best bang-for-the-buck.

Over the past couple of years, you've been savvy with your money and patient with your desires. You've resisted every urge and temptation out there. When it comes to buying the car of your dreams, you've even held back from not buying that used Corvette or recently-reduced Viper for something that not only bled performance, but oozed value, too. Your diligent ways are all for naught. That's what Dodge is essentially telling you, as well as other prospective 707-hp Hellcat owners. Both the Charger Hellcat and Challenger Hellcat sales have officially been suspended. Suspended. We can already hear "Tim The Toolman Taylor" quietly disapproving.

Dodge Hellcat Flowchart



This development follows the caveat emptor warning Dodge warned of earlier this month. Only twelve Hellcats per year are allocated to each dealership. They even provided a handy-dandy flow chart to illustrate your chances, which now seem more like roulette than a cut & dry car buying transaction.

But sometimes it's good to see the glass as being half full. This month, there are some good incentives on select 2015 Dodge Challenger and 2015 Dodge Charger trims:

Base MSRP Cash Back Lease APR
2014 Dodge Charger SE $27,990 $3,500 $269/mos (SXT) 0%
2015 Dodge Charger SE $28,990 $1,500 $299/mos (SXT) 0%
2015 Dodge Challenger R/T $27,990 $1,000 Lease CC $249/mos (SXT) 0.90%



Granted, they don't have 707 horsepower, but they are far more affordable and attainable than the Hellcat. But we digress--if you absolutely insist on 707 horsies under the hood, then your best bet might be to lease a regular Challenger or Charger to hold you over. Dodge should eventually get their arms around the production issue and re-boot. For now, we'll leave you with some of the current deals and a video of the Hellcat, courtesy of the kind folks at MotorAuthority:
