Chrysler did a road test of turbine cars maybe 40 years back, car went OK, sucked a lot of fuel and had some driver response issues. Cost of engine would have meant high price and limited market plus EPA rules about that time were getting much tougher- this was one of same problems with Wankel Rotary cars. Mazda RX7 was limited sales until EPA got even tighter, California market CARB standards killed it in that market and rest of country was going to be as bad so no more Mazda Rotaries sold in USA. Chrysler Turbine in low priced vehicle wasn't going to happen, high priced was a 'maybe' with competition from other makers having advantage- so experiment ended for cars, some trucks tested longer. Big problem is turbine NOT a good engine for varying speed utility use, gets fairly good fuel economy at steady moderately high speed as in airplane use, not much better at idle- still sucks fuel at idle. IF you need max power at lightest weight and not worried about EPA standards then turbine on ground vehicle can make sense- a heavy Tank like M1A can use the extra power and fuel flexibility of turbine, track toads don't worry much about fuel economy- taxpayers provide payments. Turbine car using Diesel fuel might have buyers remorse when compared to Mercedes Diesel car driver that tells of range per tankful, moderate hot rodding response of engine.
