The Dodge Scooter concept car

The Dodge Scooter was shown in image form, dated 2005, a small, two-door, two-seat, low-slung sports car, which if powered by the 2.4 liter engine could probably do zero to sixty in under six seconds, yet still sell for under $20,000 and make a profit.

There could be two versions, one with the 170 hp 2.4 and one with a turbocharged or supercharged version producing well over 225 horsepower, which in a stripped-down, lightweight body would provide terrific acceleration (shades of the ill-fated Copperhead come to mind.)

The Dodge Scooter may have been the latest incarnation of the Dodge Razor; like the Razor, it never went anywhere, and had little in the way of ornamentation and frills, but did have a four-point racing harnesses. The Scooter was succeeded by the Dodge Demon in the line of “cheap cars we never saw.”
