I doubt it unless they shorten the wheelbase to around 110. The 120" wheelbase is very big for a coupe and they would have problems strenthening the chassis after you remove the roof. The chassis would flex too much. Not going to happen.

i believe he was asking for a hardtop coupe (2 instead of 4 doors) and not a convertible.

120 inch wheelbase is not too long for a convertible. Mine has a 124 inch wheelbase and it's solid as a ... rock. Well, maybe not. But it's a 40-year-old unibody convertible on a 124 inch wheelbase that's been in several accidents, some fairly serious, and it really isn't bad at all.

Well, all the diehard Charger fans were asking, actually begging for a 2 door Dodge Charger and they could not/would not do it. If there is no market case justification for that car being built as a coupe to appease diehard fans and customer there would be little market justification to make a 300 Coupe. Sad!
