One of the Jalops was cruising the freeway the other day and spotted yet another 2009 Dodge Challenger prototype on the prowl. With camera in hand, he started snapping away and upon further examination realized that this particular example had an unusual two-tone paint job. In this case, rather than the usual upper-lower color split, it looks like they spliced together parts from two different cars. While most of the car is black, a deep red is visible peeking out at the edges of the camo. And no, this Frankenstein combo won't be a standard offering after the production unit debuts at the Chicago auto show in February. Well, at least we all hope not.

      Saw an interesting commercial during football on Sunday. All Dodge, mainly glamour shots/action shots of the product line (trucks, minivans, Viper, etc.), but the most interesting shot showed two sets of headlights at a stoplight in the darkness. As you got closer and the light levels in the picture came up, you could tell that it was a 1970 or so Challenger next to a 2009 Challenger. The two drivers looked at each other and the '09 took off, leaving its blazing neon(?) taillights glowing in the distance. I think that's the first commercial I've seen the new Challenger in.

      OMG that thing is Bulky and Ugly.. I can understand the sentimental value with someof the old folks but realisticly that thing is not going to help Dodge whatsoever. Look at those angles?? How square do you need to be?

      Looks like they're trying to hide the production b-pillar for as long as possible.

        Probably because that's the 'defining' design cue of the car. Wouldn't want this thing to get out, you know.

      Looking good. It's certainly going to be one of the hottest cars for 2009, along with the Camaro.

      maybe it's a special edition model.

        If you go to the original photo that shows the background you'll see that the building also has the numbers flipped. The photo was mirrored.

      How close to the concept do you recon it's gonna be?

      The Challenger would be a great car for Chrysler if they were to price it so the average Joe could own one. Sounds more like a high priced limited production car.
      Ford`s last incarnation of the Thunderbird was a flop because it wasn`t marketed right. Ford builds an affordable version of the Mustang.
      People want to buy this car. If they can.
