The Plymouth Turismo (Turismo translates to "tourism" in Italian) started life in 1979 as a 3-door hatchback coupe version of the 5-door Horizon and was called TC3 (or Horizon TC3). In 1981 the TC3 got a performance option package known as TC3 Turismo 2.2 (like the Dodge 024 Charger 2.2), and then became Turismo in 1983. The Turismo continued as an identical twin to the L-body Charger until it was cancelled after the 1987 model year. There would be no successor to the Turismo.

See the Dodge Charger (L-body) entry for more information about the Plymouth TC3/Turismo.
