Dodge compact starts pilot production

by David Zatz on

According to a source at Belvidere, Dodge is building one pilot PF compact car per day; the name remains secret, with only Dodge labels being applied. At least one of the pilots is a turbocharged car (presumably the 1.4 engine) with dual exhausts, and a black interior with red accents.

A prototype car (probably not one of the ones made in pilot production) was recently caught in spy shots without camouflage. [Details]
