find-your-muscle-car: Modern Muscle Cars

The modern muscle cars were not part of our personal search when we started this website, but we couldn't overlook all the excitement they generate and wanted to provide you with some general information. In fact, modern muscle might be the perfect fit for you, especially if you love the look and the power of a muscle car but don't want the maintenance or labor of love a 35-40 year old original might require.

Auto manufacturers tested the public's taste for the retro look years back when Plymouth released the open-wheeled Prowler and Ford produced the new Thunderbird, the first in their line of modern muscle cars. The Prowler and the new T-Bird both had the great look but didn't have much cabin space for big guys and didn’t have the raw muscle performance so many were looking for.

Other cars followed, like the PT Cruiser and the Chevy SSR, that continued to renew the public’s interest in retro styling.

Then Hollywood encouraged the demand for the power to match the style with movies, like The Fast and The Furious series and the Gone in 60 Seconds remake, that featured today's cars as well as classic American muscle.

As a result, these dream rides are now available for purchase at your local auto dealership once again. The Ford Mustang, the Dodge Charger and Challenger, and Chevrolet Camaro; any of these may be the perfect fit for so many reasons.

Why Consider Modern Muscle Cars?

  • Contemporary braking and handling…you can take a corner at speed in a new Challenger and keep the rubber firmly affixed to the road without rear wheel hop
  • Fuel efficient power…yes, this is possible with the available 6-cylinders or the 8-cylinders with modern active fuel management systems that use only 4-cylinders of the engine when cruising at highway speeds
  • Luxury amenities…leather, navigation, wifi, power everything
  • Full warranty…enough said
  • Price…if your dream car is one of the highly-valued, rare muscle cars, the new cars (even with dealer gouging) might end up being less expensive and come with all these other benefits
  • Parts availability…again, enough said

Those are pretty good reasons to consider today's muscle cars. Of course, a visit to any of the manufacturer's websites will give you all the info you need and more.

We recently saw a 2015 Dodge Charger Hellcat with paper tags (obviously just purchased) racing at a Chrysler Power-sponsored event in Ohio. It repeatedly ran the quarter mile on street tires at 119 mph. Now that's what we call going back to the good ol' days - run it at the track on Sunday, drive it to work on Monday.
