 Airliners.net: Boeing 757-200
Boeing considered a number of proposals for a successor to the 727 trijet during the 1970s, with many of these designs featuring the nose and Ttail of the earlier jet.
It was not until later in that decade however that Boeing settled on a more conventional design featuring the same cross section as the 727 (not to mention the 737, 707 and 720) but with the fuselage considerably longer in length, an all new wing, nose and flightdeck and fuel efficient high bypass turbofan engines.
Initial sales of the 757 were fairly slow, however orders picked up significantly in the mid to late 1980s as traffic on routes previously served by smaller 727s and 737s grew to require the 757's extra capacity.

 Bashkirian Tupolev 154 Crash at Ueberlingen Germany Looks Like a Shoot Down
DHL in Europe knew its Boeing 757 had departed Bahrain on schedule, and clearly at that stage believed it had collided with the Bashkirian Tupolev 154.
For if the Boeing 757 did indeed crash under conditions of strict secrecy in the Gulf area, it would then have to be “crashed again” for public consumption later.
Now, if the DHL Boeing 757 really crashed near Ueberlingen the fl box recorders would already have been found, and my work would be proved at best ill-informed and at worst a lie.

Boeing has announced that production of the Boeing 757 will stop at the end of 2004, due to a lack of orders.
Boeing did not immediately have one available, and this provided a market opening that was ultimately taken up by Airbus, who built the A320, and by McDonnell Douglas, who built a stretched version of the DC-9 called the MD-80.
Boeing has stretched the 737 even further, and the longest version, the 737-900, can hold up to 180 passengers anyway, which is close to the capacity of a 757.

 9-11 Review: UNLIKELY: 'The Pentagon Attack Plane was a Boeing 737 Instead of a Boeing 757'
Of the many theories that someting other than Flight 77 -- a Boeing 757 -- crashed into the Pentagon, the theory that the plane was a Boeing 737 is claimed by its proponents to be more consonant with the pattern of impact damage than would be the crash of a 757.
Moreover, other aspects of the damage, such as to the diesel generator trailer are consistent with a 757 but not a 737.
It is obvious on this diagram that the two engines of a 757-200 are just at the right spacing from the centerline to account for the damage on the generator and on the ventilation structure.

 Hunt The Boeing - 9/11Review
A fully loaded Boeing 757 weighing 100 tonnes with 30 tonnes of fuel on board would have caused much more fire damage to the Pentagon structure than was sustained.
Given the physical size and limits of maneuverability of a Boeing 757 at low altitude, it would have been impossible for it to crash only into the ground 2 floors of the Pentagon.
The wings of a Boeing 757 span more than 40 meters and contain the majority of the airplane's fuel.
