If This Is The New Barracuda Convertible, I Threw Up In My Mouth A Little

Published August 31, 2015

It’s been reported that the Barracuda is making a comeback. For that, we thank FCA. Unless it looks like this. Then you can keep it, Chrysler.

Chrysler broke the news to its dealers in Las Vegas, and they’ve told them that only a convertible variant of the legendary pony car will be re-introduced into the wild. It’s going to be a tough pill to swallow as convertibles usually aren’t the highest performing sales market.

On top of that bit of news, it’s going to be based on the Alfa Romeo Giulia, which doesn’t exactly inspire ponycar-like performance chills. It seems more like the Dodge Dart 4-cylinder type, not the Challenger or Charger V8.


I may eat my words, but the name Barracuda is fierce and it should be equipped with a powertrain that instills fear; the kind of thrill that raises those little hairs on the back of your neck. Anything less than a Hemi engine will be sub-par, unless it’s the Ferrari-designed 510-horsepower V6. That would do as well.

About Calvin Escobar

The Car scene is so diverse Where I come from, most enthusiasts recognize the amazing engineering (particularly the engines). The bulk of the ridicule originates from the manner in which many of the vehicles are modded/maintained. Thus, the jokes and or hate tends to be aimed more at the owner rather than the machine. All of which makes seeing properly sorted old Toyota's and Hondas at car meets, auto shows, and track days all the more refreshing.

At Autowise, we envision ourselves as not just a automobile blog or an automobile news website, instead we see our website as a platform to connect all automobile enthusiast and provide them with all the information they need.
