Chrysler Nassau Concept – Click above for high-res image gallery

Flash back to the 2007 Detroit Auto Show and sitting on the Chrysler stand was the Nassau concept. Nothing ever came of the angular five-door, but some of the elements that debuted on the show car eventually worked their way onto the Sebring. That connection stands to be revived with a report by the Detroit Free Press that the Sebring's replacement will carry the Nassau name when the all-new midsize sedan goes on sale within the next two years.

The concept's sleek lines aren't likely to inspire the Nassau, but considering Chrysler purchased the name, it's fair game and will help to put Chrysler's lackluster sedan out of the public consciousness.

Chrysler hasn't official confirmed the name yet, but when the Nassau goes on sale – likely in 2012 – it will be joined by the refreshed Dodge Avenger, with a thoroughly revised interior and a choice of either a 2.4-liter four-cylinder or Chrysler's new Pentastar V6.

      Nassau wouldn't have been my first choice, but it's still a great once.

      Chrysler Nassau. Has a ring to it. Better than Sebring, which really needed to be attached to a sportier car.

      They shouldn't have used this picture, as all the idiots that can't read seem to think this is the new "sebring".

      Allpar's "source" has found supposdely the real new sebring

      the links says 200c but
      http://www.allpar.com/cars/chrysler/200C.html

      click on that and see how you like it. I think it's going to look pretty nice if that's it.

        That's a nice looking car.

      I have really been pulling for Chrysler and although its it looks good in front. How are the interior and performance gonna hold up against what everyone else is putting out?

      Too bad. The best thing about the Sebring was its name. I have lamented that such a good name went to such a crappy car. Didn't they notice that the name "Malibu" didn't hurt the new Chevy model's sales one bit?

      Nassau? Meh.

      It's a decent looking car. Hopefully the final design will stay close. The name doesn't do it for me, though.

        the grill kinda does not fit there... good luck to Chrysler if they want to stick to it as a brand design signature :(

      They heavily refreshed Sebring has already been shown to the plant workers and they said it looked like the 200C (which comes out later this year as a 2011). Then the C-EVO platformed REAL-NEW replacement comes in 2013.

      Your story seems to have confused the two versions.....

      once they change that into a realistic production model I don't see how it'd be much different ( or better looking) than a sebring. same chunky, slightly odd proportions with the only cool things that make a difference ( wheels, lights, mirrors) never making it to production

        It shares the name and nothing else...learn to read.

      Looking this piece of... well, I wonder where would been the brain of people form Daimler when choose the designers (if they are designers...) to make the Chryslers products of that time. Pacifica, Crossfire, Sebring, those concepts like this Nassau above... Were the Cab Forward cars so bad for they choosen a totally different way of style? I try so hard, but I can't find anything american in those cars.

      The interior buttons remind me of a Motorola Razr keypad.

      Nice, and refreshing. Not my style, too flashy but still nice.

      Why the ugly grille? Why do car manufacturers think we want a trademark grille carried over year to year? BMW, Mercedes, etc. The XKE had no grille and looked pretty good.

      I don't love it..... but maybe with some time it will grow on me.

      I'm more of a VW Audi guy.....

      ... I promise to give this new looking Chrysler another look
      when it's coming out for real..... maybe it'll look better in the flesh
