What if? (Series) American Motors was revived as an electric car company?

If Chrysler would ever resurrect a luxury brand they would most likely bring back the Imperial name, it bounced between being a model of Chrysler and it's own brand before being phased out.

 

I think if Fiat Chrysler were to step up to the electric vehicle game, they should bring back American Motors. (Because motors are actually an electric thing.) They could go with retro styling. Electric Pacers, and Gremlins, and 4x4 Eagles. And some bad ass AMX's and Javelins.

What if the streaming service Hulu debuted as a TV Channel in the 1960s?

So, it’s not perfect and I’m not totally sold on the font, but I’m looking for C&C on this design....

I like that!

I was thinking of cutting a lower portion of the circle out to make an abstract “A”. Thoughts?

That logo looks too much like the emblem of a German car manufacturer whose vehicles have not been sold under its own name in the United States since the 1970s.

Ironically, Opel, which was a subsidiary of General Motors until 2017, is now owned by a French company that has agreed to a merger with Fiat Chrysler Automobiles -- the parent company of the firm that absorbed the original American Motors Corporation in 1987.

Opel was also my first thought, as I've driven several of them.  It's too close, and the length of the left part of the bolt seems longer than the right, which looks like a mistake, even if it was intentional.

Here is why I feel is a better overall redesign for American Motors-

(I like to view it as the blue portion being the shadow of the red portion which is meant to be an “A”)
