What Dominic Toretto’s Returning Muscle Car Could Do for Fast X
It should be noted that the car in Diesel’s Instagram post is almost certainly not the exact same one it was driving The Fast and the Furious and Fast & Furious since that car exploded during the tense climax of the last film. However, the recording of the vehicle suggests that: Fast X could be to revisit previous elements of the franchise. With the upcoming movie now its penultimate installment, it’s possible the addition of the Chevelle is part of an effort to come full circle for Dom and the rest of his drivers.
After saving the world several times, it remains to be seen what threat Dom will face Fast X. While the franchise grows bigger and more ridiculous with each new installment, the films often hark back to the past and the way the characters’ experiences have brought them closer together and made them a family. It’s unclear how prominently the Chevelle will appear in Dom’s journey in Fast X, but Diesel’s tease that there’s more to the vehicle than meets the eye certainly suggests it could somehow connect the new film to past events.
