It has a very retro look.

Looks like it has some road presence to it.

F*CK! They got rid of full-rear taillight bar! That was one of the reasons I liked it so much. The spoiler I like...not so much. Damn, I took a look at the rest of the pics and those look fine, but why did they do that to the rear? It also looks like the production model gets a fat B-pillar. All in all it's really good looking. It's just not as captivating as it once was.

When are American automakers going to let go of the past?

I have seen the Mustang go from progressive to retro to progressive to retro over and over again!

They need to move forward with their brands. I see Cadillac doing that, and i like what I see!

I hate this retro thing the Americans are doing. While companies like BMW are advancing far forward, Americans are going backwards.

The styling is retro, the technology is not. They will stop producing retro automobiles when they stop selling.

Good point. However I do still love the look of the challenger for some reason. If I wanted a car to capture the muscle car history, I'd take it. However, if I wanted something that has muscle but modern cues, I'd go for one of these:
