Checker Cab Making A Limo Comeback

Posted on October 5, 2015

The new cars will be made by Checker in name only (the original Michigan-based company went out of business in 2010, and ceased vehicle production in the ’80s), the company behind the new cars has been providing parts for old Checker vehicles for years now.

The first prototypes are set to hit the road next year, and full production is planned in 2018 alongside completion of a manufacturing facility with a built-in Checker museum. According to The Daily News, the company's only planning to make roughly 100 of each model, and they'll sell for $50,000 to $70,000.
