If it’s the jet age, why doesn’t a car have a jet engine? After a decade or so of work, Chrysler released the Turbine Car in the Sixties, building five prototypes and 50 vehicles for the public to test. The technology worked and offered advantages in durability and maintenance, but the car was noisy, relatively slow, and poor on fuel economy. By the Eighties, Chrysler permanently grounded the idea of a jet-powered car.
