Proving the Carpocalypse isn't all bad, CarMax is selling a new 285 HP car equipped with a six-speed manual transmission for $16,769, or about $10K off the MSRP. The catch? It's a Dodge Caliber.
If you drive on down to the LAX CarMax in Inglewood, California you can pick yourself up a brand new 2008 Dodge Caliber SRT4 for the low price of $16,769 or about $10,000 off the MSRP of a comparably-equipped SRT4. For this low price, less than the MSRP of the base model Caliber, you get a turbocharged little monster capable of an electronically (and aerodynamically) limited 155 MPH top speed, a 0-60 jog in the low 6's and a quarter-mile time of 14.5 seconds.
