Intrepid Origins??

How many people remember the Lamborghini Portofino??......The car was designed in Chryslers studio in California and only one of them was ever produced. The Intrepid is almost a dead look alike it certain areas of the car. mostly in the side and rear profiles. I can't seem to find any pictures on the web of the interior but the interior was awesome....the Daytona/LeBaron interiors received some of the treatment found in the Portofino.

Yeah, the Intrepid looks like it was based off of the Lambo alright.

The Intrepid and 300M were some of Chryslers best looking cars. They still look good after a 7 year run with no changes(6 for the 300M).

i agree that they look good and had a successful run, but 7 years with no changes? 1st gen and 2nd gen seem to show quite a few significant changes.

he is talking from 98,99,00,01,02,03,04...that is 7 years...the first gen wasnt included... if you were to include that, it would be 12 years with one major change

Still don't see the mid- mounted V-8..I THINK I see a hood
opening seam about 1:00 position on the left wheel-but
none across the front! Can you say "One piece front end"?
Now there's a body kit I'd buy!
Still looks like my old '95 'trep.

Chrysler has had a long tradition o building cool concepts and one off cars like Portofino....anyone remember the movie the Wraith??....the black car in the movie was called a Turbo Interceptor that was based on the prototype for the Dodge Daytona....could you imagine if Dodge came out with a rear engine twin turbo Daytona back then or if the Intrepid was the Portofino [minus the swing doors]

That was the concept for the Stealth. My ES had the same wheels and the front looked the same.

Actually that is the concept for the Intrepid. Read the top pic it says Intrepid.
