A much nicer looking Imperial?

Recommended Posts

I don't understand why Chrysler doesn't use the 1997 Chronos concept as more of a basis for the Imperial? I love everything about this concept, and it would be a nice break from the blockiness that all new Chryslers seem to have. This concept looks fresh even almost 10 years later.

The Chronos is Chryler's SIXTEEN. In mroe ways than one.

Looks about 1997 to me. I'm not a fan of the Imperial, but I prefer it to this.

You can see elements of the 300 in the front end, and Imperial concept in the rear on the Chronos. Yes, it's still a nice looking car, and blows the new Imperial away, imo. Still, I'd like to see something else go into production as Chrysler's flagship.

And I wish Chrysler had put the Chrysler 300 concept of 1993 into production. I loved that car.

This one from 1991?

Reminds me of a 4 door viper.

How about any other Imperial besides the one Chrysler joking called an Imperial?

I like the indentations at the rear lights and the different surfaces on the deck lid - it's somewhat Rivieraesque. As for the front end and the strong hourglass shape in its side profile...well...that needs to be toned down.

Too Cool. Yes, this culd make a better imperial, but Chrysler's currnet design language seems to be angular regardless of brand.

So, this is what inspired the Maserati Quattroporte!
