There was talk of a Turismo 'Barracuda' with a turbo, but that was shot down. As mentioned, the high-performance 2.2L was as far as the Turismo went. To many shared options between brands caused them to lose their identities and individualism.
Dodge was the 'performance' and truck brand. Chrysler was the 'luxury' brand and Plymouth was the 'value' brand. Chryslers and Plymouths were sold at the same store, if you wanted a turbo you bought a Chrysler Laser.
When Jeep came, that gave Chrysler-Plymouth stores a 'truck'. I felt that we got into trouble when the various models blurred the lines and lost their 'uniqueness'. The differences merged and became bland.
