5: Chrysler TC By Maserati
Believe it or not, you’ve read this heading correctly. There was indeed a Chrysler sports car designed by Maserati. Developed in partnership with Maserati to get rid of the ‘blue-collar’ image Chrysler had. The Chrysler TC was built in Italy, and there was a small production run on the car (via Motor Trend).
The two-door sports car did not persuade consumers, and like the Cadillac Allante, it quickly faded into obscurity. Chrysler is not the first brand name that comes to mind when you think of an exotic sports car. Justifying the high price tag for the TC wasn’t an easy task and the car was eventually discontinued.
