The Dodge Demon looks so yesteryear. No desire to own one.

Here we go. Another thread on every other car sucks besides the Corvette. I'd kill to own a Demon or a GTR or a 350R. I love my Vette but trust me it has its problems too.

If you want to read about Demon Love, go to a Demon forum. Or AT LEAST put it in an off-topic forum here.

At the drag strip you should worry as the Demon will win. Love my Vette but the Demon is built for those who appreciate the power and it's 1/4 mile performance.

I never said I wanted to read about Demon love. I'm not the one who stated this threat. Go ahead and line up against one and let me know how that works for you.

There is so much more to a car than straightline speed. Honestly a GTR that you strip out the interior on and do some light mods will take a Demon.

It's cool Dodge made one but it's a complete one trick pony and most people are going to add the front seats, rear seat, trunk carpet, heated says, sunroof, etc, etc and all that weight loss and then some is added back in.

If any one on this forum says they wouldn't like to be behind the wheel of a Demon, their senses are completely numb.

No matter how you slice it, the Demon is - and will be - bad-***...

Went out for a drive this evening, cruised with one for a while with manufacturer plates. Not my cup of tea, but sounds so wicked. Some second gear jumps, just playing around together, having fun. Damn thing sounds like a freight train from hell when you get on it. Makes the hellcat sound like a kitten.

I do wonder why some don't find it possible to like different cars for their own strengths. Oh wait I get it, it was just a joke.

I'm a life long vette junkie ( presently on my 9th vette, a 2014 Stingray), and have owned a lot of other fun cars too. The Demon is a waaaay cool factory super hot rod and guys are gonna have a ton of fun running around in them.

And yesteryear represents the glory days of the muscle car. The Demon is right on in its look and marketing for the days gone by.

I think the Z makes a great third car and the Demon would make a great fifth car.

some vette owners need to continually criticize other cars to support the reasons they bought a vette.

Wow, lots of thin skins around here. I guess humor is lost on those without it.

Sure, the Demon is fast in a straight line, 1320 feet at a time. If that's the way you drive your car, go for it. Just take it easy turning onto the return road at the end of the strip, or you might find yourself on your roof in the weeds. I drove one of these beasts a week ago, and yes, they go like a raped ape . . . and they corner like a rhinoceros on a wet clay bank.

To each their own.
