    I'd say a Caliber sedan or the next Stratus.

    I'm thinking you may have the next-gen Stratus here. Could be quite a find!

    The car does appear to be small but the side profile, front end, and rear all look like the Sebring renderings floating about (such as on allpar). The JS cars are supposedly on the next-gen Galant platform which, we hear, is smaller than the current gen Galant. So maybe this is the Sebring. Now get the **************** thing on sale DCX!

    It's either the next-gen Sebring or Avenger sedan (the Stratus name is history, BTW). Doesn't look small to me.

    Bet we see them at the New York Show in April.

    Yes, it's the cloud car replacement.

    To me it looks to small to be a sebring, really not sure on this one.

    I thought so too, but it's too big to be a Caliber sedan too. That night shot with the headlights is important too. I think they look unmistakably DCX-like.

    Re: Spy Shot, Possibly a new DCX small car

    I was thinking its the next sebring.. Im kind of happy cause I look all over on allpar.com and the pics they have arent really that closeup and i couldnt see it on any other sites. Maybe Im the first to have some decent pictures (even though it was at night)

    I looked all over for pictures... the only ones I found were of mules, not the actual car. You appear to have either caught a snap of the Stratus/Sebring, or you've got something else entirely. I don't think it's the Caliber sedan... too big for that. It's much bigger than a current generation Neon.

    This thread could get a bit of attention. I put it on my own blog, but nobody reads that!

    Edit: Oh, Jalopnik is there. My work for today is done.

    You have the '07 Sebring there.

    I've shot a few similar prototypes this year:

    That's the Sebring.

    The Avenger has a rear fender line that kicks up, almost just like the Charger. Because of it's roofline, however, it doesn't flow as smoothly as the Avenger will.

    I've seen these cloud car replacements unmasked, and I have to say, it'll be interesting to see how the market will accept them. In my mind, the Sebring will be more likely to garner attention, as it seems to meld the best cues from the Mercedes CLS-class, Infiniti G35, and the Chrysler Crossfire.

    In otherwords, a ****************************ized Airflyte, if you will.

    Intersting if that's the way they will look. I read something contrary to that that basically said these new cares won't be the "lookers" that the LX cars are. They will be attractive, for sure, but not as bold or as attention-grabbing.

    I hope that they are wrong (I can't remember who sad it --- Jerry Flint? Paul Leinert?) since I'd like to see Chrysler succeed with the new Avenger and the Sebring.
