I'm seeing a definite horsepower war, I believe it's inevitable that the government will put a cap on horsepower for production vehicles. More horsepower, more stupidity and more deaths. JMO

I thought that years ago... and here we are still pushing the HP. With the new electric cars hitting 1000hp you would think they would at some point.

Nope cant see that happening but what I see happening is the EPA ICE age requirements cap the HP possibilities. And as a Manufacture what really is bing accomplished by creating 1000 HP ICE cars???? When you can win the EPA wars by making EV 1000 plus HP cars???? And as we all know put a 1000HP motor in our Hellcats and the traction issues is huge for daily driving. But hell yeah would love to see a 1000HP Factory Hellcat but can honesty say she will be off the road rather quickly for most since she will just bust loose way to easily.

All about bragging rights. Do you need it is another question.

That would against the 1st Amendment! "Too much horsepower, is just enough."
