- It's time for Cut For Time, two stories, one minute each. We start with this. A day after Dodge unveiled its new crossover, the 2023 Dodge Hornet which I said I did not like, the car already has 14,000 pre-orders. So what do I know?

According to Dodge CEO Tim Kuniskis-- I think I got that right, maybe-- the entry level model is expected to reach dealerships in late 2022. So the Hornet, Julie, has seen some good demand.

But what really caught my attention, Dodge at the same time released a photo of the new Dodge Charger Daytona SRT Banshee concept.

So right there, you're seeing the Hornet on the screen. That's the one that has 14,000 pre-orders. But the Daytona Banshee is the first look at their take on an electric muscle car.

No idea when this car is going to come out but it looks like the Dodge Challenger that I sold a couple of years ago. And I'm all for it. I mean, this is some bad ass muscle. I think the Banshee can do very, very well. I wish it all but the best if it comes to market.

- I wasn't here yesterday. Why did they get rid of the Charger?

- They're phasing out gas guzzling cars next year. So no more Charger, no more Challenger. So two icons of the road, icons on the road, are going to wave goodbye. And maybe this Banshee concept is a nice way to feed muscle car people like myself with an electric motor.
