Comeback Cars: Deceased Vehicles That Made Miraculous Recoveries

Chrysler 300 | 1999–present
Current Base Price: $31,540
The 300 name returned on the 1999 300M — the logical successor to the 300L from 34 years earlier. Chrysler built the 300M on entirely new architecture called the LH platform. This new model was front-wheel drive and its V6 was not particularly powerful — its connection to the original letter series 300s seemed to be in name only. In 2005 an all-new 300 premiered — this one with a fresh design and rear-wheel drive. The top-of-the-line 300C has a 345-horsepower HEMI V8, and in 2012 Chrysler added the 300C SRT8 boasting a 6.4-liter 470-horsepower V8. The SRT8 only lasted until 2015 — the current 300 is available with V6 or V8 power as well as available all-wheel drive. Like the earlier letter series, the 300 is available with the latest luxury and performance features.
