Chrysler’s design chief wants to revive the iconic Plymouth Barracuda

Article by Christian A., on November 8, 2010

If you are a fan of legendary muscle cars this must be your lucky day, as Chrysler’s design chief surprised us all with his latest interview, admitting that he is seriously thinking how to revive the iconic Plymouth Barracuda.

Chrysler’s design Chief, Ralph Gilles, is also the boos of the Dodge brand, which means that the car has serious chances to see a production version.

"There's a lot of pressure on us to bring the 'Cuda back," said Ralph Gilles in an interview at the 2010 SEMA Show. "The customers have been stomping their feet for it." he added.

The American manufacturer already revived the Challenger, which is Barracuda’s corporate cousin, and already has the four-door performance-oriented Dodge Charger model, which received a redesign for the 2011 model year (read all about it here).

Still, there is one big problem regarding the big return of the Barracuda! As you may know already, this model was produced by Plymouth, but this brand doesn’t exist anymore.

This means that the name would have to be co-opted by Dodge or Chrysler, just as the manufacturer did with the Plymouth PT Cruiser. [via usatoday]
