2016 Javelin SST: Plug-In Coupe for Chrysler
With my recently proposed "Heritage" division proving to be quite a popular idea online, I've extended a similar concept to the "new" Chrysler corporation, now owned by Fiat of course. I'd call this new division "American" to recall AMC as well as point out the fact these are fully American vehicles and would always be built wholly within the United States. With all of the AMC as well as Plymouth and DeSoto nameplates available, my first introduction would be this Javelin SST plug-in electric sports coupe. Leave the monster Hemis and Hellcat engines to Dodge, "American" would be their electric car division.
What look like retro tape stripes are actually aero "tunnels" stamped into the sheetmetal to help keep airflow attached without large spoilers and airdams. Full LED lighting front and rear as well as quite a bit of carbon fiber used in the body structure help keep weight to a minimum. What appears to be the Javelin's vinyl roof is actually polished carbon fiber sail panels designed to assist airflow to the rear lip spoiler, also in the interest of economy and quietness. Electronic all wheel drive would also be featured.
