MM with boost

MM.net family.

Since selling my third MM back last November, I said it was going to be my last MM. I've found that what I can afford (or choose to) there are minimal cars that fit my criteria.

4 door
V8
RWD
Newer late model

My options are:
Dodge Charger Scat pack or 12-14 superbee 392 / SRT 392
Chevrolet SS 2014 +
Caprice PPV 2011 +
Genesis 5.0 R spec
Jaguar XJ supercharged
Maserati Quattroporte
Pontiac G8 up to 2009.5


I have since been looking for another MM. I basically had a deal with one member and there was a catastrophic problem with the car for which, he decided not to sell. I thank him for not selling it to me (stand up guy).

I was talking with another member about his but, I just can't bring myself around to getting another black one. No matter what the cost.

Currently, I am in talks with two people on a potential purchase of Caprice PPV's. One nicely modded and one really low miles.

I'm going to give it one last try on a MM. Here's the criteria that I'm looking for.

1. NOT black
2. boost a must
3. NOT a zillion miles
4. NOT hit by everything but a train

What do you have ?

interesting variety of choices you have, all good. Out of curiosity - are those still potentials or have you decided after looking that a Marauder is the best fit.

Someone just posted a boosted DTR for sale - it may be slow but its boosted

I would drive the hell out of a v8 Chrysler 300S. I'd imagine all the charger performance and go fast stuff would bolt on.

Once you've had boost you can't go back to stock

Thanks.

Truly, only a few on that list I would actually buy. A MM is the best fit. However, right now the PPV is at the top. If I wanted to put myself in deep debt, the SS would be my first choice. Second, would be a Scat pack with appearance package.

Have you considered a 2011+ 300C SRT-8? It has the 392 in it.

I have. Those are rare and really pricey.

I just prefer the Charger look.
