The title for these drawings say Chrysler Sebring, but obviously they are not Sebrings. <br><A HREF="http://automotorundsport.de/d/85196" TARGET="_blank">http://automotorundsport.de/d/85196</A>

I have the issue of AMS in which they talked about these renderings. Supposebly the next generation Sebring will take a lot of styling clues from the Charger model to make it more appealing to younger people and therefore achieve higher sales figures.

the next sebring may possibly take some aspects of the design, but it wouldn't take the crosshair grille. these are, without a doubt, possible renderings of the charger based coupe. <BR><BR>

they are not official, AMS does drawing just like Motortrend does (actually, buys similar ones)

I've been drooling ever since I saw this picture on another forum. If DCX made this car, I would be saving every dime I had and working 3 extra jobs if I had to to get one. I absolutely love this design and after staring at it for a while, I can't find any part of it that I don't like. This car just works on so many levels.

Doesn't look to me like this car could be built off the 300/Charger platform. Too low in the front with too small of a greenhouse. And I really don't see DCX taking that much risk with their design.

Heres a cgi from R&T. Obviously not right since an insider had told me that "the Challenger's design has not yet even been finalized, nor has the next generation LX platform from which the Challenger will be based."<p> <IMG SRC="http://www.allpar.com/forums/index.php?act=Attach&type=post&id=225" BORDER="0"> <br>source: R&T

The front reminds me of an audi, but I think It's got enough of it's own styling to be acused of copying. I hope the real thing looks alike...

fresa, Those are renderings and they were not supplied by DCX.
07-06-2005, 10:24 AM
I know, But I am commenting on the rendering, and saying it looks pretty good. As I said <br><TABLE WIDTH="90%" CELLSPACING=0 CELLPADDING=0 ALIGN=CENTER><TR><TD><i>Quote, originally posted by <b>Superfresa</b> »</i></TD></TR><TR><TD CLASS="quote">I hope the real thing looks alike</TD></TR></TABLE>

Don't believe in retro styling one bit. Above rendering...well I won't go there because it has no validity.<br>Anyways DCX is coming out with one hit after another after another. Here's to new Challenger.

DCX already HAD a good design for a Challenger coupe with the Charger concept. This R&T drawing will be the Aztek of Chrysler if production looks anything like it.<br>*<br>*

I am almost certain that sketch won't become the real thing, not even close. Personally, I think the car in the sketch is ugly and disgusting, makes me want to put my <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://images.zeroforum.com/smile/emthdown.gif" BORDER="0">

who knows? maybe this will end up being a sebring and we could end up mining coal for the guy who invented tv dinner. wait, where the heck was i? <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/cwm13.gif" BORDER="0">
I think the Challenger could make a great alternative to the Mustang if they build it right and if it looks just as good. I like the pic of the car in black..looks promising.

"They don't know what they are talking about," Chrysler spokesman Jason Vines told IL. "<B>There has been no official approval, and I should know - I'm on the product strategy team that gives the green light</B>.

The rear-wheel-drive concept version of the muscle car is powered by a 425-horsepower 6.1-liter Hemi engine linked to a six-speed manual transmission. The concept is patterned after the initial 1970 model, the one that is most sought after by collectors.</TD></TR></TABLE><br> <br> <br><TABLE WIDTH="90%" CELLSPACING=0 CELLPADDING=0 ALIGN=CENTER><TR><TD><i>Quote »</i></TD></TR><TR><TD CLASS="quote">The New York Auto Show came and gone for those who anticipated the showing of the next SRT creation - 2010 Dodge Challenger SRT8. Endless hours of office work time were wasted for those hungry performance fanatics in hoping that SRT Director Kipp Owen would debut the next beast. Sore eye strains of the constant look at the computer monitor and not to forget the hand muscle fatigued fingers constantly clicking the mouse in search for an answer. <p>MOPAR fans don't give up hope. SRT will show us in due time the next best muscle car that rival the upcoming Chevrolet SS Camaro and the Ford Mustang GT500<p>Remember, the <B>2009 Dodge Challenger R/T in limited copies [50,000 are planned] will get the next generation Hemi 6.1 liter powerplant but not the SRT version</B>. With the hoopla of baby boomers wanting bigger motors and not forgetting the domestic and foreign competition, <B>SRT engineers are secretly developing the next SRT choice of powerplant - the 6.4 liter Hemi V8</B>. The same engine that was shown to us SEMA fans late last year. Noting SEMA showing of the engine's output at <B>510 Horsepower and 510-lbs of Torque</B>, this beast maybe the top of its field when produce. Not to forget about two more Hemis (inlcuding a SuperHemi) will be joining the lineup but one may replace the current 6.1ltr in the foreseeble future. Retro engines are making a comeback. <p>The <B>2010 Dodge Challenger SRT8 will reside on the next generation "LY" platform [codenamed LCX23] that will be shared by the 2009 Chrysler 300 "D", 2010 Dodge Charger, and hopefully the 2009 Dodge Magnum wagon</B>. Yet, let me also reveal the mysterious fastback coupe that will share the same Challenger components that maybe dubbed the Cordoba. Planned production date begins in April 0f 2008 at the Brampton Plant. Tentative now but we will find out later whether the third shift can handle two more cars. <p>So where is the next showing? Perhaps at SEMA...among the MOPAR loyalists that would be the most appropriate location. Stay tune for more updates later.</TD></TR></TABLE><p>Concept engine goes into production <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://images.zeroforum.com/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <p><A HREF="http://www.edmunds.com/insideline/do/News/articleId=115369" TARGET="_blank">EdmundsInsideLine</A>, <A HREF="http://www.srtmopar.com/hemiblog/?permalink=471" TARGET="_blank">SRTMopar</A><br> <br>
