I like that,never seen it before.
Before the 2005 Chrysler 300C debuted at the 2003 New York Auto Show thanks to Ralph Gilles team, the original design study was done again by Robert Hubbach. I have a copy of the original drawing of the car in my office, but here is the design study for the so called 2000 Chrysler Nassau. The car was originally going to be called 300N. This car was never shown to the public, with the except of it being on display for four months back in 2007 at the Walter P. Chrysler Museum.
Part of me is thinking what if they went this direction instead, sort of, with it?
.. sighs as the image doesn't work. again.
Looks like the image works in a reply.
Edit: Or not... I like that style though. A throwback to the original Charger.
Weird, the image does come up in reply but back to the red X when posted.
I love the wide, flat-ish grill on the current Charger, but would like something more neo-classic business traditional with the 300. Neo-classic business traditional... Could I have thought of something more descriptive that gives zero actual description??
I would personally like to see that styling on a Challenger IMO. The old Duke's of Hazard Charger is nothing like the current generation, and much more like a Challenger. That flat front would work on a Chally IMO.
That's from the '71 300/Imperial actually, the grille inspiration.
Back when car size was measured by the acre...
An honest to God trunk lid big enough for things other than golf and duffle bags to go through.
Really? Let me show you something. What youre looking at is a vehicle, NOT a constipated pokemon. Here in Portland, OR which is loaded with green-ies, treehuggers, enviro enthusiasts, eco warriors...whatever you want to call them. That hideous looking skidmark is still actually selling, despite the fact that anyone who can afford one can afford something that actually looks cool. Forget Tesla, that's a high end ego-stroke for rich execs looking to show off their money or who have genuine interest in EV technology. I'm referencing people who buy hybrids to make some kind of political statement, and that's a HUGE majority especially in this area. Arguably, there are some people who spend time in bumper to bumper traffic and who might see some benefit from a hybrid or electric and something more conventional like a camry or accord hybrid is an all around better car. However, when youre at the farmers market or the feminist rally or whatever that crowd does for fun, it wont get you noticed. When your mode of transportation is so horribly deformed then you really MUST care about mother earth, and you'd do well to wear that sentiment on your sleeve for all the world to see. I'm sure if you talk to enough people theres SOMEONE out there who actually likes the looks of this dumpster fire, so no I'm not dealing in absolutes here.
Actually from behind its not too bad. Something is also not sitting right to my eye...I think the trunk's height is way too tall...dropped down by like 3-4" might do the trick.
I think it's a visual illusion. The trunk height wasn't modified from the current car in that rendering.
Possibly. Or maybe its too wide at the top, I'm not sure. But what can I really say...your photoshop skills are head and shoulders above my ability to draw a straight line so theres that!
I agree with you on this. Whoever decided that hybrids need to be hideous needs to be punched right in the throat. The Tesla Model S and similar vehicles prove that a low drag coefficient can be achieved without funky wedge shapes. And the Portal proves that you can have a modern electric design without looking like a blob.
