Yes, a convertible is possible.
Motor Authority is reporting that a convertible Barracuda was just shown off at a Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) dealer group meeting in Las Vegas. Now this is a big deal as FCA doesn’t just hold these things for fun. They are designed to keep dealerships in the loop about FCA’s future plans, which apparently include the Barracuda. The source, who was at the event, said the convertible looked good and was 7/8ths the size of the current Dodge Challenger, as in lighter and smaller.
Other Challenger-related cars shown off include the Challenger ADR (American Drag Racer) which could pack up to 1,000 horsepower and the Challenger T/A, last seen at SEMA 2014. Now the revival of the iconic Barracuda in hardtop form is probably all but good to go as FCA re-trademarked the name back in June of this year, but the convertible is apparently still being decided on. So, does the world need a convertible Barracuda or are you cool with just a slightly smaller Challenger? Also, before you freak out: Shown here is the Cuda Concept which was at SEMA back in 2008, aka not what was just shown to dealers.
