Default 2008 Cuda?



It is rumored that a 2008 'Chrysler Cuda Concept' is getting ready for the January Auto Show. My Uncle works for Dodge and he said that a few Cuda concepts were designed at the same time the Challenger was. Now this has me thinking. The Challenger Concept is basically production ready. A Cuda, If it looks like the one above, Would be production ready too. And we could have a new Cuda and a Challenger come out in 2008. It seems very logical to me, Since the 70-74 Cuda and Challenger were very similar. And DCX knows how popular the Challenger concept is. And the original Cuda is far more popular than the Challenger, So I'm guessing it is very likely we will see a new Cuda very Soon. Although not a 'Plymouth Cuda', but a Chrysler Cuda. What are you're thoughts?

I think it is real. I E mailed Dodge About the Cuda Concept. And here is my response from Dr. Z


We are pleased to read of your interest in the Chrysler Cuda concept
vehicle. At this time, DaimlerChrysler has not released any plans that
indicate the future production of the Chrysler Cuda. If built, The Chrysler
Cuda concept vehicle would be built on the same platform as the
upcoming 2008 Dodge Challenger, and would be production ready
around the same time. We encourage you to stay in touch with the
Chrysler.com website as well as your local Chrysler dealerships for
future product updates.

They would probably wait 1 year after the challenger to see how it sells. That is if they really would want to produce the cuda.

It is a photochop. But in the e mail i got back they basically confirmed the Cuda as a concept Vehicle. And this picture is basically what the concept looks like. My Uncle said it is based on the new Challenger but looks like a 71 Cuda, So I'm guessing it looks similar to the pic posted...

Me too. I thought it was just a rumor. But in that email. He basically confirmed that there is a Cuda Concept that is based on the Challenger. So the pic I posted might not be too far off. I hope it comes out. The only problem is, I wont be able to decide between a Challenger or Cuda

That would be easy for me, PRICE. Which ever one I can get a better deal on, would be the one I would get.

They will probably be around the same price. I'll just look at them both in person, and get the one that looks better.

if the cuda looks like that, and the prices are similar, i wont think twice about getting a cuda...and stripping the chrysler badges, and tacking on some plymouth badges!

I think I like the Cuda better as well. But a Chrysler just doesn't sound right.
