The old Pentastar is really trying to live up to its logo. Chrysler announced yesterday that it’ll team with NASA to develop and share technology. No, don’t expect a MOPAR space shuttle or a Charger with solid rocket boosters. The moribund automaker will use NASA batteries and composite materials for future hybrids and electric cars. It’s not the first time the two groups have worked together. Chrysler built Redstone rockets for the Mercury space program in 1961 and boosters for the first two Apollo moon missions.
And no, do not expect a Dodge Challenger NASA Edition. Definitely not.
