200C final production slated

2013 Chrysler 200C convertible

With a brand new Chrysler 200 scheduled to start production in 2014, Chrysler has reportedly set an end date for the current 200C convertible — the end of October 2013.

It is unclear whether that is the date set for all convertibles or just one of the two tops (hard and soft); likewise, while one source told us that there would be no convertibles in the next generation, that statement remains unverified.

Some have speculated that the 200 convertible, whose sales have been slow recently, would be dropped entirely, and replaced by a Dodge Challenger convertible. An automotive engineer wrote that the design of the current Challenger indicated that it had been designed with convertible conversion in mind, and while that option has been left to the aftermarket, it would not be unreasonable for the company to move convertible production to the market preference for topless muscle cars.
