AMX4 sports coupe prototype created by son of AMC designer

The AMC (American Motors Company) was famous back in the 1980s. I expect that a lot of whole have forgotten that this company ever existed, especially after it was absorbed by the giant Chrysler towards the end of the 1980s or the first years of the 1990s. Still, a couple of people like Jeff Teague still have the old AMC (American Motors Company) in their hearts. To be more explicit, Jeff Teague is the son of Dick Teague. Dick Teague was the design vice president of AMC (American Motors Company) for no less than 26 years. Mister Dick Teague was responsible for the design of several AMC (American Motors Company) and Jeep models including the Hornet, Gremlin, Javelin, Matador coupe, Ramber American and Jeep Cherokee.

After previously creating a number of sketches showing a modern looking AMC (American Motors Company) car, Jeff Teague, the son of Dick Teague, decided it was time to go to the next level. More precisely he created a 1/4 scale prototype made from clay of his coupe model that he previously sketched. This project wants to be the successor of the famous AMX/3 that his father created. Jeff Teague chose a suggestive name for his project, more precisely AMX/4.

The public debut of the clay prototype will take place in El Segundo, California during the So Cal AMC Classic Car Show and Beach Cruise event. Unfortunately we are not sure whether we will soon see a full scale prototype that can be driven of the creation of mister Jeff Teague, but it would be something impressive if we would actually manage to eventually get this car in production, one way or the other. We will just have to wait and see what happens.
