This is a "Wild Mass Guess" entry, where we pull out all the sanity stops on theorizing. The regular entry on this topic is elsewhere. Please see this programme note.
Christine is a Transformer.
A very depraved Decepticon.
  • Or possibly another Autobot who went insane as a result of witnessing Cybertron's destruction and becoming a space exile.
Christine is from the universe of Cars.
Somehow she crossed into our universe, only to find that it is a horrific place where her kind are mindless zombies being controlled by parasitic monkeys. She soon Goes Mad From The Revelation, and suffers a psychotic episode. Hell, I'd bet the Cars answer to Stephen King wrote that exact story.
Christine is inherently evil, she's not possessed.
Christine was shown to be evil on the construction line. Surrounded by perfectly normal cars nearly identical to her. There was no horrific accident, no vengeful spirit that met its end in her. There is absolutely no reason for any spirit to be attached to that particular Plymouth Fury. Christine is an entity in and of herself, a Yandere automobile that inexplicably manifests.
  • That, or she was possessed right from the start.
    • Well, in the movie thats how it is, but it's never really addressed in the book. Though it seems more to imply that Roland imprinted his rage and hatred upon the car, eventually corrupting it to the point we see in the story.
      • She's not just possessed its like World of Darkness level of spirit...the car is alive in the Umbra..a love/rage spirit whom took on the form of a car.
    • Christine was probably bad from the start, she just needed Le Bay's rage to get her actively moving. Or in other words, she was a very willing and eager vessel for his endless fury.
