I'm probably set until 2008/2009 so what's it gonna be?

2008 CTS-V sedan or coupe - must have at or above 500hp
2008 Camaro - yeah it used to be a 20 something's car but I'm thinking this time it's different.
2008 Challenger - see above
2008/9 300C - It should be due for a redesign or at least a freshening up

Is there anything else on the horizon in the $50-$60K range?

the CTSV is the only $50k car in that group.

Is there anything else on the horizon in the $50-$60K range?CTS-V with 500 hp I doubt would happen. Main reason being that their cheapest car can't be their most powerful unless they give the blown N*'s a decent sized power boost which I doubt they would do. The Camaro I'm not holding my breath for because I'm not a fan of the concept so I'm sure I won't be a fan of the production car and in usual GM fashion it will be priced far and above the Mustang. The Challenger I'm not sure about. I've heard so many different things about the car that i'm just going to sit and wait and see what Dodge brings out. The 300C....if there is one thing they need to freshen up its the interior. Boring pastic every damn where, other then that I like the car and after test driving the SRT-8 I liked it even more but I just can't get past the interior. I'm waiting to see if Lincoln does build that MKS and if it has the stats that they are claiming for it then that would be on the top of my list

What are the stat's claimed to be for the MKS? I'm hearing around 320 hp, which doesn't put it in the league of uber-sedans that I'm shopping. Isn't just the new Volvo platform and a yamaha motor?

As for the SRT-8 interiors, I couldn't agree more. But then again the CTS-V's wasn't too hot either so by comparison I didn't gain/lose anything. I expect the next generations for both to be an extreme leap forward. The Lincoln interiors are also getting better as of late.

I believe so but I just love how the car looks and its been awhile since a Lincoln car has had over 300 hp.

I expect the next generations for both to be an extreme leap forward.I hope so because like you said the CTS-V's interior is nothing special either. Black plastic!! :worship: :bigroll:

The Lincoln interiors are also getting better as of late.IMO I think the Lincoln interiors are some of the nicest if not thee nicest interior's when it comes to domestic car companies.

I'm set until 2008, then a Challenger will be sitting in my garage. I absolutely love the design but I don't want an SRT8, R/T package for me:D! I'm guessing it'll be marked up around $40,000 when it comes out and then after 6 months will fall back into the affordable $30,000 range.

I'll have to make some sort of change in my vehicles but I need the Eldorado for work and I love the convertible for weekend cruising.

Holy crap. Just got my new M/T magazine. I may have to look at the Grand Prix if they import the Holden Commodore SS. Nice vehicle. LS2, 360+ horses, 4 doors, 6 speed auto or manual. Ah, who am I kidding 360 horses will NEVER be enough.

Sky Redline!!

Mallet Sky if you are going the Sky route. That's just scary :eek:

But of your choices, I'd go with the CTS-V (but I may be biased) but the Camaro looks sweet also. It all depends on the pricing that they put on each, though.
