i think this is the first time i've seen the ***-end of the Demon. Why does it look like a Lambo?

As they said, 93 Capri all over again.

indeed. the comparison to the mercury capri is poignant. This thing is not going to last long. man, they missed an opportunity to really break into a new market segment, and totally, epically filled the attempt clear to the brim with lose and fail.

Same here. I was thinking that crossed with an Audi TT. Although the whole car looks very S2000ish.

Thing is, they had plans to use the SRT4 engine, but RWD and in a smaller car. It would have HAULED ******* ***, but they suck at life so they made it FWD.

Well they do not have any small RWD platforms to base it on as far as I know.. so therefore the costs of development would have been to great. Knowing D/Chrysler its probably based on their Jeep Compass/Dodge Caliber platform haha.

I was never worried that it would squash the miata. It's a damn dodge. You say,"but I like dodge". YOU WOULD!

WOW.


EPIC FAIL.


Seriously...All Dodge had to do was get a decent chassis...A SRT-4 motor...make it RWD...and handle decent, not even great...and you'd have one hell of a fast roadster with massive power potential...but no...

FF? wtf? a FF vert is gay as ****.
