1997 Plymouth Pronto concept car
The Plymouth Pronto was a small concept car released in 1997. The design was modern with several retro touches. The front of the Pronto resembled that of the Plymouth Prowler. A roll-back fabric top was used on the Pronto. The Pronto never went into production, but its design inspired two more concept cars, the Plymouth Pronto Spyder and the Plymouth Pronto Cruizer (neither ever saw production). The Pronto's design also inspired that of the Chrysler PT Cruiser, which did go into production in 2001. Had the Plymouth marque not been discontinued, the PT Cruiser would have been sold as a Plymouth.
