Well, I had planned on keeping my 16 and let the banks / kin fight over it.
That is now my plan with my 19.
What about you @1971demon ?

2019 Challenger Hellcat Redeye
#5
I sold both my16 Charger and Challenger last summer to pickup the 50th Anniversary 426 Challenger 2020 model. Damn can’t believe that was so misguided by RS. The HP dollar discount and aggressive retail discount is the only reason I’m back in a HC RE. I get bored too easily with cars, trucks, motorcycles and when something bigger and better comes along I usually move on. The end of the run IMO on something bigger and badder for the Challenger May never come, If this is the case I may hold onto her which would be a first in all the years of me owning cars. So answering your question not sure I can answer at this time.

The REWB is a keeper. Works great on the street, will work better soon.

Just purchased nearly all of its suspension upgrades this weekend with some good Black Friday pricing. Camber will be adjustable on all four corners and all bushings will not be sloppy any longer. Biz is working on a unique set of wheels for my track pleasure so my girl can wear some big meats suitable for her size all around when it appears again at a road course near you.

Forgot! And, @PLMCRZY set me a paper yesterday that says it's a 1 of 1 even with its OEM wheels! Seems like nobody else with Octane Red has no sunroof, with black calipers, no NAV but loaded with everything else they offered!

Had a ‘15 SRT for one year. Had to have a Hellcat. Now it’s been 3 1/2 yrs with the Hellcat. Love the car but a RE may be in the future and if so will prob be the keeper.

Special ordered mine just the way I want it to keep, make it my last car ever. Question is, is the car up to the same commitment and stay reliable and trouble-free. She dropped a valve @ 7,600 miles and locked up the motor... not reliable at all in my mind.

Sold my 15 M6 several months ago. I sort of regret it, but am glad I got out before the value truly tanked. I picked up a 2013 Boss 302 which I've added a Whipple Supercharger to. The thing is now scary fast, but I definitely miss the HC. I'm enjoying watching the market from the sidelines. If I found a screaming deal on a 17+ I might jump back in. I keep telling myself a Charger would be more practical, but I just prefer the looks of the Challenger.

I tend to keep cars. I still have my 2003 Ram that I ordered. Currently has 44k on it... I absolutely love my Charger Hellcat. It's the ultimate highway cruiser for us. 4 doors so the dog can easily get in. With that said... I'll keep her until they release a RE Charger.

Current mindset is the RE is a keeper, would have contemplated a 50th red eye if they did one and it was special. Not just badge, and embroiled seats.

My 16 HC M6 is a keeper. For back roads spirited cruising I like 3 pedal cars so no RE in my future. Don't care what the "market" is - mine is not going anywhere. Plus BB watched out for / signed the car so it was a special build experience for me.

My 19 (Challenger) only has about 3500. No issues so far.

Lots of these Redeye's are getting used wisely with a mindset of keeping them!

Indefinitely - I custom spec'd this car for me, and plan to keep it. It'll stay stock for the next 7-8 years (extended B2B warranty) and after that the gloves come off (there should be lots of great parts developed and tested in the aftermarket by then).

In the 20+ years I've been on car forums, if I had a dollar for every guy who said "keeping this car forever" I wouldn't be on any other car forum but one's for Ferraris and Lambos ;)

I will keep mine until/unless life says otherwise.

The only possible exception is a trade up to a better Challenger, and in my mind, that doesn't count (it's a scary place in my mind).
