The Plymouth Laser was a short-lived sport compact car that was produced by the Plymouth division of Chrysler. It was introduced in 1989 as a 1990 model, and was discontinued after only two years of production.
1. The Plymouth Laser was available with all-wheel drive, which was very rare for a small car at the time. 2. It could be had with a turbocharged engine, making it a true pocket rocket. 3. Its sleek, futuristic styling made it stand out from the crowd.
The Plymouth Laser was originally going to be called the Arrow, but Chrysler changed the name to Laser at the last minute. Supposedly, this was because they didn't want to invoke images of Stone Age technology!
