SRT Barracuda shows up CBS’s “60 Minutes”

Article by Christian Andrei, on March 29, 2012

There’s no question that Chrysler enthusiasts are very dedicated and are always on the lookout for hints about future cars. Members of Chrysler-centric forum Allpar.com had been viewing the piece on Chrysler-Fiat CEO Sergio Marchionne on CBS's "60 Minutes” but what caught their attention was the roofline and tail of a red coupe that was seen while SRT brand head Ralph Gilles (Chrysler’s head of design) was being interviewed.

There are speculations that this is the Barracuda, largely due to a performance-oriented spoiler on the tail. It’s rumored that new Barracuda will be added to the SRT lineup based on the existing Dodge Challenger. Last January, Chrysler revived the 'Cuda nameplate in trademark filings with the U.S. Patent and Trademark office.

But when Gilles was asked whether a new version of the '70s Plymouth muscle car was being developed, he declined to comment. A Chrysler spokesman, who was shown a screen capture of the coupe from the "60 Minutes" piece, said the car is one of numerous concepts and projects in its studios and also that this is a student model. So now, bets are being placed on whether this is the famed Barracuda or just a full-sized student design model.
