    ! What is this?






    Rumors are saying it might be rear-wheel drive, V6 -possibly twin-turbo - and with a 0-60 of 5 seconds flat.

    Where did this thing come from? Looks like it's debuting jan. 8. Am I the only one who missed this?




    EDIT: Oh, okay, it's the GT. I'm behind the curve on it.

    Was at the dealership yesterday, it's being unveiled on the the 8th of this month, but they are told to expect to have it around December.

    They believe it will be called the GT Stinger and didn't have too many other specs they could share because they didn't even know them yet.

    GT Stinger? Sounds like something Dodge would name a car.

    Already done in the last Transformer Movie.

    It was the red sports car that was the evil version of Bumble Bee(Yellow Camaro).

    Stinger was some badass prototype sports car.
