The internet is ripe with talk of how the V8 engines in the Dodge Challenger and Dodge Charger will soon be replaced by a twin turbocharged V6 and while I believe that we could see a twin turbo V6 in the Dodge muscle cars in the future – I don’t believe for a second that the next generation Challenger or Charger will be without a V8 engine option.

Ford began selling the Mustang in China in early 2015, and it is a niche vehicle, selling at a rate of about 3,000 cars a year. Still, that makes the Mustang, which starts at 399,800 yuan ($57,670) the top-seller in a sporty car segment against more expensive vehicles like the Audi TT and the Nissan Skyline GT-R.
