HISTORY:

Chrysler's TC by Maseratiwas a "Q" body based on a modified second generationChrysler K platformjointly developed byChryslerandMaseratias agrand tourerand introduced at the1986 Los Angeles Auto Show. After two years of development delays, the TC became available in late-1988 and a total of 7,300 units (the minimum required under the contract) were manufactured inMilan,Italythrough 1990. All cars sold as 1991 models were manufactured in 1990.

Development:

Lee Iacoccastarted a friendship with the lateAlejandro de Tomasowhile atFord, which led to theDe Tomaso Pantera. During the 1980s, Iacocca headed Chrysler while De Tomaso was owner of the historic Maserati brand. In 1984, both companies signed a memorandum of understanding to create a sport coupe, which ultimately became the TC. Chrysler also became an investor in Maserati during that period. In 1985, Lee Iacocca stated that the planned "Q-coupe" would be the prettiest Italian to arrive stateside since his mother immigrated.[1]

The 1989 TC used a slightly detuned 160bhp (119kW; 162PS)[2]Daytona-specturbocharged2.2Lstraight-4. This intercooled version, known as the Turbo II, was coupled to an A413 three-speed automatic transaxle. The Turbo II was replaced by aMitsubishi-sourced 3.0L 141bhp (105kW; 143PS)[2]V6 enginefor the 1990 and 1991 model years, with the automatic transaxle being upgraded to a four-speed A604 unit.

500 cars were built with an optional drivetrain consisting of aGetragmanual transmissionand a 16-valve head version of the 2.2L. This engine is often called the "Maserati" engine because it was built by Maserati and has a Maserati-branded cast valve cover.

The 200hp (149kW; 203PS) 16-valve 2.2L "Maserati" engine's cylinder head was cast inEnglandbyCosworthand finished inItalyby Maserati. The pistons came fromMahle GmbHinGermany. The camshafts were designed byFlorida-based Crane Cams and were manufactured by Maserati inModena. The "Maserati" engine used a specially-made 2.2 block, upgraded crankshaft and rods. AJapaneseturbochargerwas sourced fromIHI. The rest of the engine used commonTurbo IIparts made in theUnited States.

The TC's platform was based on a shortenedDodge Daytonachassis withsuspensionand axles from the original model (except for the 5 speed Getrag with "Maserati" engine). The bodywork was produced by De Tomaso subsidiaryInnocenti.Thestrutsandshock absorberswere specially designed for the car by Fichtel andSachs, and a Tevesanti-lock braking systemwas standard. The special wheels were made in Italy by theFormula OnesupplierFondmetal.

Bob Lutz, Chrysler executive, said the TC cost Chrysler close to $600M.That is, the cost to produce each of the 7300 TC was about $80K in 1990 dollars.

Features:

Rear view of 1989 Chrysler TC by Maserati

The TC featured a detachablehard topwith circular, beveled-glassopera windowswith a six-point latching system[5][6]and a manually operated cloth lined convertible top that was available in either tan or black. For the 1989 model year, interior leather colors were ginger or bordeaux. Available exterior colors were yellow, red, or cabernet. The bordeaux interior was only available with the cabernet exterior, both of which were dropped in 1990 when black and white exterior colors were added along with a black leather interior.

The TC's dash, door panels, seats, armrest, and rear fascia panels were covered in hand-stitched Italian leather. Inside doorjambs were finished with stainless steel panels and sill plates. The convertible boot, over which the hardtop rests, is a body colored metal panel. A special interior storage compartment came with an umbrella, tool kit, and small spare tire that allowed the use of the full-sized trunk even with the top down. Standard equipment included a 10-speakerInfinityAM/FM cassette stereo, power windows, 6-way power seats, power door and trunk locks, map lights, puddle lamps, cruise control, and tilt steering wheel.

The only extra cost option available for the TC was a CD player that was a plug-in attachment to the standard Infinity AM/FM cassette stereo. All drivetrain alternatives were no-cost options.

The rarest TC built was a "special order" at the end of the production run for a Chrysler executive. It was white with a Bordeauxinterior and the Maserati 16V engine, the only 1991 car to have that color interior or engine.
