To answer that question bluntly— no. Today’s automakers are smart, as a result, no company is looking to mass produce a car that won’t give them any sort of sales boost. This rear-wheel drive Chrysler 200 coupe concept might be the perfect example of that.
Although tempting, don’t expect Chrysler to rework its front-drive 200 chassis anytime soon…much less cut two doors out of it. But at least if Chrysler did, we can now say that it would be quite a looker.
Render artist Theophilus Chin plied his craft over the weekend and cooked up this eye-catching interpretation of a new 2015 two-door 200. It certainly pushes all the right buttons.
The car’s standard hood length paired with its long swooping roofline and short rear deck provide it with a bit of a BMW 4-Series meets F-Type Coupe appearance, which ideally isn’t a bad lot to be compared to. The prospect of the 292-horsepower 3.5-liter Pentastar V6 in a lithe two-door certainly wouldn’t find many complaints from Mopar fans either.
Chrysler also already sells a rear-drive V6-toting model; perhaps you’ve heard of it – the 300. Ah well, we can all hope.
