The Crossfire will be built only by the middle of the year.Chrysler will be ceasing production of its slow-selling sports coupe, after a brief run that lasted close to five years.
The production of the performance SRT-6 range was already stopped, and now the entire production run will come to an end.
The Crossfire never managed to attain the levels of popularity that its Mercedes SLK sibling enjoyed. Introduced initially as coupe and then as a roadster, the Crossfire was based on the older generation SLK coupe, and thus saw sales falter when the new model was released.
Production of the Crossfire was outsourced to vehicle manufacturer Karmann, and the original contract stipulated that the car would be built for a period of five years only, so the announcement doesn’t come as a compete surprise.
You will ask for a replecement, but we think that it’s unlikely that we’ll see a replacement model anytime soon, given Chrysler’s current financial situation.
