DaimlerChrysler is a wee bit closer to putting some retro muscle into its lineup with the Dodge ChallengerAutomotive News hit up Chrysler Group's executive VP for global sales and marketing, Joe Eberhardt, for a few answers regarding the pony car, and Eberhardt says that the company may have come up with a viable business plan for production.

As expected, the plan involves building the car on the Magnum/300C/Charger platform, which would require a small expansion in production.
