There is a rumor floating around, mostly in Europe, about the death of the Crossfire.
Chrysler is trying to buy its way out of their contract with Karmann (at a cost of 100 million Euros) who is building the car for them.
The Crossfire came out in 2002. And was based on the stunning concept of the same name.
34 000 were sold in 2004. Around 12 500 last year.
The current contract with Karmann calls for 30 000 cars a year.
A tough spot for Chrysler.
I had the chance to drive one last year, and it is a great car. If you don’t mind the claustrophobic feeling inside. The combination of a very high beltline and a super low roof isn’t for everyone.
But a great car, and a bargain, for those who appreciate it.
