2. Plymouth Prowler
The hot rod culture is one of the key ingredients of the American automotive landscape. However, no company ever dared to present a factory-built hot rod until 1997 when Plymouth presented the Prowler. It is a retro-futuristic roadster with a V6 engine and fantastic looks.
Plymouth imagined it to be a follow-up of the Viper. The Prowler was the hit on the show circuit, so Chrysler wanted to capitalize on that. Despite having some initial success, the car proved to be a failure. And that is because the customers expected V8, not V6 power under the hood.
