Today’s EVs have sub 4-second quarter miles times, but driving one is about as exciting as revving a blender. Sure, you get neck-snapping acceleration, but without the adrenalin-boosting howl of a dinosaur-fueled gasoline engine. Accordingly, Dodge has reintroduced the cars that made us smile despite getting 9 MPG. The trend began with the “new” Challenger, a faithful reproduction of the car that starred in the epic alt-adventure movie Vanishing Point. It didn’t have the panache of a Mustang or Camaro, but could go from 0 to 60 in less time than it takes to read this sentence. Powered by a 485-hp 392 hemi engine, the new Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack Edition will do a quarter mile in less than 12 seconds. Your kids will beg you to drive them to school in this car. Taking it to Fast Lane Fridays at Homestead Raceway is the perfect antidote for a tough work week. We’d bet our lunch money that Mr. Musk wishes he could drive one to the office; Dodge.com.
