You might have had something to do with it.

Dodge's brilliant marketing for the Hellcat lies in its simplicity. It involved drip-feeding the public small morsels of information and trusting the power of the Internet do the rest. And it worked. Big time. But how did the Hellcat name come about? Giving the 6.2-liter supercharged HEMI V8 engine a name was always part of the plan. But the growling feline logo "was a very last-minute change" Dodge CEO Tim Kuniskis recently revealed to Automotive News.
