Never seen those renditions. I hope that isn't what it looks like. I'm sure it'd be nice in person, but I expected more of the old styling mixed in.

The renderings we see from car magazines are always far from reality, that rendering wasn't made by a Chrysler employee, just a "thought" of what the car could look like by anonymous someone.

From my sources, it will have a lot of retro styling, mainly from the 70 and 71 cuda.

TORRED exterior. Mods: too many to list.

i hope those cues are in style and not weight. if they keep it at about 3300 +/- lbs that thing will be a MONSTER!

it's supposed to be 300 pounds lighter than the current Challenger and be 8 inches shorter in overall length.

I doubt it will look anything like that render...but IF it does, it's more likely that Dodge will keep with their theme of LED tails and it's more probable that it will look something like this...





I'm sticking with my original render (until better info is available )...

I was reading about the Fish on Jalopnik yesterday and they confirmed that the car will not look like C&D's rendering. The descriptions of size and weight match.

Personally, I was never a fan of the F-body Fish. The A-bodies were, in my opinion, lighter and better balanced as long as you stuck with a small block.

Still about 500lbs too much.

Even 3500lbs would be reasonable, although 3800 puts it close to the current pony cars.
