Bob Lutz Dream Car

Recommended Posts

This is a pretty tough one. What car was similar to what Bob Lutz sketched on a napkin at an expensive restaurant/ Clue:It was his dream car. What company did he work for at this time and why did he give it away to a reporter?

He was working for the Chrysler group. The vehicle had no brand at first even though he designed it for them. It wasn't Chrysler. You need a different car and why it didnt become a Chrysler.

No. Clue: The vehicle was a GM. Forget about why it didnt become a Chrysler. It was rejected and he gave away the drawing to a journalist but he did use a very similar design in producing a GM vehicle when he came over to GM. Concept or Production, I will not tell?

CSpec is right, it was the Sixteen. It was drawn on a napkin and Chrysler left the idea. So he gave the drawing away and later at GM. He used a similar design for the Sixteen. It is all in the book, The End Of Detroit. I read it, it was good. It said that in the book i am not sure what chapter but it did.
