In 1993, as a followup to the Dodge Viper, Chrysler rolled out the Plymouth Prowler concept car. With a design influenced in part by famed hot rod builder Chip Foose, the car received enough consumer attention that it was put into production in 1997. The first production Prowlers featured a 214 hp V6 linked to an automatic transmission. In 1999, after a one year hiatus, the car returned with an upgraded 253 hp V6 and a semi-auto 4 speed. The car remained in production as a Plymouth until the brand went bellyup in 2001, at which point the car was rebadged as a Chrysler until the last one left the assembly line on this day in 2002. All together, 11,702 Plymouth Prowlers left the factory. Learn more about this car and other retro rides in our list of 11 affordable modern classic cars to buy now.
