But have you ever seen these Intrepids?

Intrepid ESX 1


Intrepid ESX 2


Intrepid ESX 3





The ESX3 looks pretty damn bad in my opinion. Interesting reading about these cars here:

Just read this, "Further development of the ESX III has Dodge projecting delivery of the first production models as early as 2008 or 2009, at a cost premium of only 3,000 more than its former standard production counterpart."

Wow. I wonder if thats true. Will be interesting to see. I think the car looks pretty bad. The interior might be a little to boxy for me though.

those first 3 or 4 pics have been posted. I still wish DC kept the same design as the concept.

The first two are like freaking aliens...

Third one, you can really tell what replaced the Intrepid and LH cars.

Not sure we'll ever actually see it come true but the ESX3 IS the best looking of the 3 IMHO. Still not as good looking as a 2G though!!!

IMo the esx 1 is the hottest, looks the most like a 1st g but with an agressive look to it.

The shape of the esx 3 is the most likely to ever reach the showroom since its very similar to the LX design. Hopefully the trep will still come back sometime in the future. All of these designs take away the family sedan features of the trep that chrysler needs to have in their cars.... which kinda sucks for people like me that drive with max 2-3 ppl LOL...

2G with oversized rims, lowered and a glass roof, everything i would want for my trep... plus its in my colour too.. looks more like an SE than an es/sxt/rt

Thats why i like it so much, the others look either way too sharp or way too boxy. The esx probably built the 2g. Hopefully they bring it out again... although i prob wont buy it .... :icon_cry:

I dont care much for 2 or 3. 2 looks like a Honda electric car thing, and 3 looks like a new Civic to me. Number 1 looks like a 2nd gen and also what everyone thought cars would look like in the future. All curved with a bubble top. I kinda like it but dont see it ever being made into production. Of course that is an old concept car that was probably tossed into the bin after the drawing for the Charger came.
