A YouTuber by the name of TheSketchMonkey redesigned the PT to look more modern. Would you buy this redesign?

To me, a PT Cruiser is supposed to look sort of retro. This redesign looks more like a Storm Trooper from Star Wars.

I'm surprised but yes, I quite like the look of that. I can also see Handy's storm trooper allusion though probably wouldn't have thought of it that way without it being pointed out.

If available, would I buy one? Probably not (at least until it was 10 years old or so). I prefer pre '70's mainly.

Probably not. I kind of like the way it looks, but not THAT much. I prefer the OEM style, thanks.

Interesting. I don't see the point in updating retro. If they were going to update a 40's look, they should probably have just put tailfins on it in 2006.
The wheels look like Mercedes take-offs and the side cove looks very Mercedes GLS



The rear lights with the full width panel below the main light seem reminiscent of some years of Kia Soul.



FWIW, the car has been out of production for a decade and is at the low point of reputation. We love/like them, but people aren't walking around wishing for PT Cruisers. The rendering seems like good work, but considering what Mercedes did to the company I do not like the thing having so much MB influence. **** them. I'd have at least gone for race track taillights like the Charger/new Dart.

I would like it, but with door handles.

It's a nice job, but if I needed to buy another car, it would be something different, just for a change

Meh. Nothing to really differentiate it from a dozen other crossovers or mini-SUVs. Yeah, it sort of looks like a PT Cruiser, but then again, a PT Cruiser was supposed to sort of look like a mid-century panel truck. So two degrees of separation just loses the design intent.

Now if it looked like this...

There's no room for the bootleg whiskey or tommy gun.
