Default PT Coupe Released at SEMA

GT Cruiser Coupe - SEMA (November 2003)
Enthusiasm for Chrysler PT Cruiser customization is taken to a new level with the Chrysler PT Coupe Concept. In partnership with Decoma International, Inc., the Chrysler Group SkunkWerks team began with the new (available early 2004) Chrysler PT Cruiser Convertible, and added a permanent hard top and functional drop tail gate to turn it into the PT Coupe Concept.

Its aggressive stance begins with a lowered suspension, courtesy of a Mopar coilover suspension kit. Colorado Custom has provided 19 x 8-inch custom-cut aluminum wheels, which wear low-profile P235/35R19 tires from Bridgestone.

The PT Coupe Concept’s interior features aggressively bolstered 2+2 seating, with a dramatic focus on the cockpit. Most of the interior – including the entire back seat area – is trimmed in navy blue leather, while the cockpit features a combination of light pearl beige and navy blue leather. The rear view mirror incorporates a pop-out screen for backup assist (the camera is in the rear spoiler). The 900-watt premium audio system incorporates 18 Infinity speakers.

Under the hood is a 235 horsepower 2.4-liter high-output turbocharged engine, enhanced with the Mopar Stage 1 turbo upgrade. Additional performance enhancements include a Borla dual tip exhaust, and two-piston caliper performance brakes from StopTech High Performance Brake Systems.

Just seen the details regarding the GT Cruiser coupe. We are in Vegas from 16th November to 26th - where can we see one. Also is it worth us considering going to Pomona for the event there? Any replies appreciated. Would love to be the first Cruisers owners from the UK to see the new models.

That is the ugliest car I have ever seen![:0] You cannot take a utility vehicle and turn it into a compact sports car. Who wants to buy a compact car that only gets 25 MPG when others are getting 30+? Skip this bad idea and concentrate on making a Panel or the Truck

Build the concept GT Cruiser or a panel.
At least they should rake the windshield back to match the sweep on the roof...oh wait, then it'd be a Beetle...[:0]

Speaking of beetles, this reminds me of a Volkswagen squareback, only bigger.[V]

Like Conan O'Brien "What would happen if a PT Cruiser married a Nissan Maxima".(The worst of both.)

The only thing of worth that could come from this piece of sh#t is a bunch of handling and performance gear that they would never have released without the push of trying to sell a really ugly car.

Just saw the PT Coupe at the PT Block Party in Pomona over the week-end. I wasn't impressed, it could be anyone's coupe. You lose the style which has made the PT Cruiser what it is when go to a 2 door coupe. The Panel Van on the other hand was sharp.
