If your talking long term investment, I think it boils down to getting the vehicle that will be the most rare. I think the Daytona will outsell the SRT-8, simply due to price.... so, I think the SRT-8 is going to be the best "investment" and hold its value alot better then the Daytonas, but you'll also have a higher up front cost.Dodge Girl said:I almost put money down on the GoManGo Daytona but I wanted to wait to see if they come out with the Plum Crazy Purple one. My hubby wants the SRT8. My question is which one will be the better investment the Daytona or the SRT8? Thanks
DAYTONA_R/T said:the last thing I heard from the plant IIRC is they build about 30 SRT8's total a month right now... that is the 300 and magnum combined... ....
Yeah, but don't forget the 300c srt-8 started around the same time for the 2005 models and by years end there was only about 256 of them built the first year! I'm going to stick with my number of less than 500 this last part of the first model year, and next year will be a much greater total in the thousands. It's just a gut feeling I have. :wink:I believe especially the first year will be the most collectible car of the chargers with the limited number built of less than 500. Time will tell. :happy:GLHS837 said:I dont believe that, Johnny. The 2003 SRT-4 got a much later start, with the first cars being made in Dec 02, and very few of those, if any. Earliest ones I can recall were Jan 03. Even so, they whipped out 3,275 of them. That was with prodution running from Jan to June. So with an additional 4 months, how many cars can you build?
The factors that make it hard to predict is that the Brampton plant also makes two other hot sellers, which takes away from SRT-8 production. But they are also running full bore, three shifts and maximum overtime.
Yea, those 200 plus cars for the 2005 model,the orders were taken in oct. of late 2005 (like the charger srt-8 in sept)and people didn't start receiving them until late dec through feb and part of march of 2006 equaling around 200 plus models,soo I am being generous thinking that their will be 500 for the first initial run for the 2006 charger srt-8. I think the 2006 charger srt-8,along with the 2005 300c srt-8 will be the rarest of the rare!! We'll see.GLHS837 said:One fact I did not kow ut that evidently the model year switch is March in Brampton, as opposed to June for Belvidere.
Here's the numbers for the 300C. And keep in mind, the 300 was the lead, and therefore should have discovered most the bumps in the process.
2005 models: 220 Production from Feb to March (2 months)
2006 models: 1329 Production from March to Aug. (5 months)
So a little more than double the time led to more than 5X the production. Of course, time will tell. See you back here in Mar, after the year is done
