Chrysler’s PT Cruiser to survive till 2010

Chrysler’s PT Cruiser to survive till 2010

Chrysler PT cruiser fq

Chrysler’s PT Cruiser is proving its resilience once again with another death-row reprieve. Apparently the PT has yet again escaped the gallow’s pole, and instead will soldier on in production until December 2010.

The move will reportedly keep Chrysler’s Toluca, Mexico plant running until the Fiat 500 and Panda arrive to fill the space. The two models will be built at the site beginning summer 2011, and the six or so months between the final demise of the PT and the beginning of the Fiat era will be required to retool the facility.

With the PT Cruiser possibly around for another year and a half, there is no choice but to continue to enjoy its retro charm. By now it’s an 11-year-old platform and a design that has changed little since its inception, the PT is almost a living, breathing classic car in its own right.
