In a strange alternate universe, Dodge created the Challenger SRT Demon has a hot hatchback rather than an American muscle car, and it looks great.
Here at Hot Cars, we like to ask ourselves, “What if?” Like what if Lamborghini wasn’t a brand of Italian supercars and instead they made Italian super pickups? Would they look like an Urus with a bed? A Ford F-150 with spoilers, ailerons, and other bizarre aerodynamic additions? Or would it look like an amalgamation of the two?
Some people just don’t imagine these scenarios but actually make them a reality. Or at least an artistic rendering of what that reality might look like.
We have Rain Prism (by way of Motor1) to thank for this “what if” of a Dodge Challenger SRT Demon reimagined instead as a hot hatch. Which really makes it seem more like a station wagon, given the Challengers fairly long wheelbase.
On the plus side, this probably wouldn’t add too much weight to the muscle car’s already fairly weighty 4,280 lbs, but it would add a ton of extra space to store whatever your heart’s desire! Maybe turn the rear of the car into its own entertainment station, or perhaps use it to store a spare tire that you’ll inevitably need when racing down the drag strip?
As much as we love this station wagon Demon, it’s hardly the only thing Prism has reimagined. It’s probably not even his best work. Here’s a new take on the classic Porsche design but instead of a rear-engined sports car, Porsche decided to plop their flat-six somewhere in the middle.
Or what if instead of being so concerned with going fast on pristine pavement, Nissan was more about going fast on loose dirt and gravel? A rendering of an off-road Nissan GT-R gives us a delightful glimpse into what is obviously a far superior reality than the one we currently find ourselves in.
But what could be better than a hatchback Demon? All that room under the hatch would be just enough to slot an honest jet engine in there. Just saying.
