The Laser was only sold with a 4 cylinder engine. The base model got the 1.8 liter, while the Laser RS got a more robust DOHC I4 making 135 horsepower. Still, these cars were underpowered, a common criticism that would follow its siblings, especially the Eclipse, for many years after the Plymouth Laser went out of production.
The first year of the Laser, the RS option was only available with manual transmission. For the second year, in 1991, an automatic option was added. In 1992, the RS Turbo AWD was sold with only a manual transmission.
The turbocharged engine on the Laser could make 195 horsepower in its first year. That number was dropped to 180 horsepower in 1993. That engine was sold with the RS Turbo trim. Other options on that trim included the Gold Package, which added gold wheels and graphics.
The Plymouth Laser was discontinued after the 1994 model year due to poor sales. The siblings would continue to be sold for many years. The most expensive Laser was the 1993 and 1994 RS Turbo AWD, which cost $17,572. The lowest priced model was the 1990 Laser base model, which cost $10,855.
There are plenty of used Plymouth Lasers on the market. A total of 115,000 of there were built in 5 years, so it will be a while before they are rare, although they are already much rarer than their siblings. You can get some good prices on used Plymouth Lasers by looking on eBay. You can get Laser parts on there as well.
