It looks scrunched up to me. To illustrate, I've done a little chop job (lengthened 16" and sectioned 3") to give it the proportions of a '71 for comparison

My thinking was the other way around: That the Mitsubishi was inspired by some of the last Cuda prototypes - Look at the rear quarters in particular.
One version had big square headlights, and looked like a cross between a Superbird and a GT-40
I love the way the new Challengers look from the front, but it's just wrong from the side

It should look like the old cuda. Look how they did the challenger. It wouldnt take much to change that to a retro cuda look.

The New Cuda

Well, not quite, but I was looking at a concept model for a '75 Cuda a week or so ago, and noticed how much it resembled a stretched out Mitsubishi Eclipse.
That planted a seed in my twisted little brain; so I got to playing around with the idea, and I knew it was meant to be when I superimposed the Eclipse over a 71 Cuda and except for the rear axle being 13" further back, it fit perfectly from the windshield back.
