Our man Noah was on hand to watch Dodge unveil the Demon concept, proving that no niche is safe from the butcher-than-thou automaker. Some think it's a thing of beauty, others maintain that the crosshair grille has no place on a roadster. Regardless, most agree that this is strictly a design exercise, since going head-to-head with the other lightweight heavyweights in the market would prove to be too taxing on the DCX crew. No matter, some of us will still fantasize about the first-class hoonage potential of piloting a Demon equipped with the 300 HP turbo'd SRT4 mill at our beck and call.

      I like the color and the body lines although I have never liked the Dodge grill. This will be the first time I have ever said this about a Dodge, I like the dash layout and interior.

      I sure hope they'll beef it up a little....

      Looks like the rear fenders are falling off.

      this car looks fantastic.

      They shoulda just built this one:

      The old Razor concept's styling was more coherent and had IMO the perfect concept for a fun small RWD coupe...

      Front and back styling doesn’t match. Get rid of the cruciform grill. It’s clunky. Dash is boring; console is nice. 6speed is nice. Overall it is nice.

      Can you say, "aftermarket grille?"

      I think it would be foolish not to produce this. It's about time Chrysler updated the Crossfire, which looks kind of nice, but can't compete with anything modern. A new Dodge Demon would allow Chrysler to change the sheetmetal and give us a new Crossfire, which they are needing pretty badly.

      Or just kill the Crossfire all together. Either way...

      Its an interesting concept. If DCX (or a partner at Mitsubishi, Hyundai, or Chery) can come up with an appropriate chassis, it could be a contender.

      (Note that the engine is a joint effort with Mitsu and Hyundai)

      Im sure 90% of Miata and Solstice buyers would not notice if their dual A-Arm suspensions were replaced by struts at all four corners. For a $5000 discount, some would even jump ship to a car with a solid rear axle.

      "Regardless, most agree that this is strictly a design exercise, since going head-to-head with the other lightweight heavyweights in the market would prove to be too taxing on the DCX crew."

      Who cares, it's not like the sky, et-al, can compete with the boxter or MKII TT. Just build the damn thing so Dodge has an affordable halo design... build it on the crossfire platform since nothing built on it is selling [anywhere near ‘well’] now.

      You either like the grille or you don't, but it is working for them. End of story.

      This car looks read for the showroom floor as it, all they have to do is deliver it with some beef (blown 250+ HP) and a retractable hard top and this could put a serious damper on import sport drop tops all over the USA (maybe even back in their home turf across the pond).

      Still think this one looks to far along in development not to be real. Far more production bits than concept bits for it not to be near ready or being thought about.
