"...the inspiration for the Prowler came during a 1990 free association exercise at our Pacifica Design Center in Carlsbad, California. Someone wrote the words "hot rod-style retro car" on an index card. By 1992, the Prowler was a concept car, and in 1993 the concept was introduced at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. The production story of the Prowler is also interesting. To make it easier to build, engineers constructed the Prowler out of aluminum and placed the transmission next to the rear wheels. They then separated the engine and transmission (which are normally together) with the driveshaft. They essentially reverse the process of how the engine and transmission work together. This was a revolutionary change in the auto industry."
