“Meep-meep!” Anyone familiar with Saturday morning cartoons knows what that is the sound of.
But, could it be the noise that spurs the rebirth of an American icon, the Plymouth Road Runner?
Better yet, is this what Chrysler needs? With retro-inspired designs seemingly never dying out, it appears an independent Austrian designer, Michael Leonhard, has penned up a new concept that could give a renaissance to the Plymouth nameplate.
With Chrysler sales continuing to flounder and a new generation of upbeat muscle cars, perhaps a re-launch of Plymouth could inject some life into Chrysler’s portfolio. Or, it could punctuate what appears to be the end of yet another American manufacturer.
Regardless of the outcome of the brand, the design is a flavorful throwback to the days of Plymouth’s success. Leonhard says that the concept takes most of its cues from the Road Runners of ’71 and ’72.
So, what say you fellow spies? Do you believe we have seen the last of Plymouth?
