I know it was from several years ago (1998) so really isn't a future model or prototype but where else can I post this? Anyway, I really liked the idea of the Jeep off-road sports car when it debuted and still do... am I alone? Probably...
I really liked thinking that the 4.7L V8 from the Jeepster would one day end up in the TJ... of course, that never happened either.
I have a picture of a sketch that was in an early Liberty intro brochure. The sketch has the front of the Jeepster on an altered Cherokee (XJ). One persons idea of what the Liberty could have looked like. I think the picture looks good and I would have bought a vehicle that looked like that. The Jeepster front look inspired the front of the Compass concept. Too bad they didn't stick with that look instead of the swollen cheek look of the Compass.
The original Willys Jeepster from the 1940's was a 2 wheel drive roadster. Sounds a lot like the Jeepster concept.

ummm.. the AMC SX/4 was far ahead of the Jeepster concept.... my favorite car I have ever owned... had the AMC I-6 engine too!....that car ROCKED!

I loved the 98 concept wouldof bought one if they had put it in production. Been looking at the 52 jeepster rare v6 over the weaker 4 banger. Just dont need another project jeep right now already restoring one.
