The original Charger was significantly bigger than the Challenger which followed. The Charger was Dodge's competitor to the Mustang until 1970 and the Challenger was developed only because Chrysler had decided to morph the Charger into a personal luxury coupe. The Challenger was built on what was pretty much a shortened Charger platform.
The current Challenger is HUGE so there would be no point to a similarly sized Charger coupe.
As for the chop, I'd liked to have seen more of the '68's rear window treatment. I'd also would have liked a modern interpretation of the '68's nose.
