We may have gotten our first glimpse at what the production version of the Chrysler 200C will look like. Website Noticas Automotivas is reporting that it has managed to get its hands on a slew of patent drawings of the car, and from what we can tell, the new, smaller four-door has stuck fairly close to the concept we first saw at the 2009 Detroit Auto Show. That includes the car's stylish curled front fenders and bulging rear sheetmetal. It looks like the 200C will also wear similar shaped headlights, though whether they turn out to be as sharp looking as the LED/projection units on the concept remains to be seen.

We haven't heard a whole heck of a lot about the 200C since the car cropped up in the Motor City. With the Sebring finally on its way out for good, we knew that Chrysler had to be hard at work on a replacement – and if these patent drawings are any indication, the new model may just be the 200C. If Chrysler can manage to infuse the car with same attention to detail that we've seen in the new Jeep Grand Cherokee and shove the new Pentastar V6 under the hood, it could be a force to be reckoned with. Head over to Noticas Automotivas to check out all of the patent shots.

      This is old news! The replacement for the Sebring will be called "Nassau". Hopefully NO parts or influence from Mercedes/Daimler who ruined what was once a promising car company. Hope Fiat does better. Much better!

      Maybe Chrysler should attempt to improve the reliability of their present cars before inventing new ones that catch the eyes of loyal buyers. The only vehicle recommended by Consumer Reports is the Dodge Ram 1500 5.7 V8. That says much about why they failed financially.

      The closer they come to the concept, the better chance this vehicle has for succeeding. I wonder if they'll muck it up by incorporating a bunch of useless style lines running all over the hood

      WOW!!!!!! It looks just like..............every other small sedan from America, Japan, Germany or Korea!!! And they spend millions on design studios.

      If it weren't for the "Hemi" and maybe Jeep, I think Chrysler would have gone under a few years back. Their designs are terrible.

      Why did they stop production of the PT Cruiser???
        • 4 Years Ago
        @Laurie Ellen
        Because they were aging and sucked these days, were good back in 1999.

        Daimler stopped Chrysler from investing in the PT to keep it current. When Cerberus took over it was too late to do anything with the PT. Now FIAT will build the 500 for the NA market in the factory where the PT was built..

      Great! Hope the production model ends up being exactly like the 200C minus the concept's weird interior. This will finally put those stupid Camrys in their place.

      Their best design was and still is the 300C

      The 300C has bad-@ss written all over it. The 200C is nice, but borderline plain, especially once the concept car bits are dropped.
