Default Guess my 07 GT is kinda rare :)

If this site is correct, my Black 07 GT (5-speed) is pretty rare Looks like #'s for all GT's in 07 were way down... only 0.8% and only 3.5% turbos total. Looks like 04 saw the most turbos with around 30% of pt's being turbocharged. Kinda interesting to look at those stats. 2007 Chrysler PT Cruiser Data, Info and Specs | GTCarLot.com

The Mexicans were running out of parts to build PT's...LOL

The Chrysler directive was to cancel the PT Cruiser program much earlier then any news announcements published. Falling sales of PT's at dealerships and plants gearing up for more sought after models. Accordingly the plants were often running short of parts and at times needed to pull from other platforms to complete some production runs. So I would go bragging to much.

Look harder to find less then published information about PT Cruisers last production years.

I wasn't really bragging Just surprised by the low number of turbo pt's in 07.

Why not?


You have a SHARP looking PT Cruiser...just in case I never mentioned it before.


Had I not gotten a RED PT the second choice would have been BLACK. But not a 2nd gen and not a NA.

Wait. Your first PT Cruiser WAS a 2nd Gen non-turbo. Right? That legal California herb must be having an effect.

Yep. Those were getting pretty rare by 2007. I don't see very many GT's at all newer than 2006.

There was a guy in my area selling an 07 GT in inferno red crystal and claimed in the ad there was less then 330 made that year in that color, Would there be some truth to that?
