    I consider the name "Barracuda" and "luxury sports car" to be an oxymoron.
    I guess Dodge can't get away from that portly look no matter what.
    A luxury sports car? I think not!
    A Barracuda? Why bother using a name from the past?

    Of course they have been talking about a Barracuda for years now. I hope it never happens.

    NO, it looks like a New Dart humped a Camaro! :leghump:

    But at least it is a 2-door

    Agreed.....I would like to see a '71 Cuda retro look with a factory supercharged 5.7 Hemi instead of this Camaro looking thing. I hope Dodge is not thinking about this inbred looking design. This may be going too far. Create a car that looks like the competition? Back in the day there was no doubt that was a Cuda haulin' ass down the road. The underrated 340 4 speed Cuda caused much grief to many a Ford and Chevy owner, with all due respect, if you please.

    Just my .02 worth.

    I hope not! Leave the Challenger alone. Concentrate on perfecting it instead of changing it. If you look at a car company like Porsche, their body styles stayed virtually the same for decades, the worked on perfecting the car, not how it looked. Mopar needs to shut up about the Barracuda and perfect what they have.

    I hope you who ever was on the design team that made that car was fired immediately. Gross!
