Great Cars Never Given a Chance to Succeed

Road & Track Logo By Chris Perkins, Brian Silvestro of Road & Track | Slide 1 of 15: Pontiac started showing promise right before its death, and no car in its lineup was more promising than the G8. It was a rear-wheel drive sedan built by Holden in Australia, and available with a V8 and a six-speed manual. Basically, it was the car enthusiasts wanted Pontiac to make, but GM's bailout by the U.S. government forced Pontiac to a premature grave. Its legacy lived on in the Chevrolet SS up until 2016, when that car was also killed off.

None of these cars achieved their goals, but they're still worth celebrating. Some cars deserve to fail, but others failed for reasons beyond automaker control. Each one of these cars is great, but some failed for economic reasons, where others failed for being misunderstood by customers. Here are some cars that should've had a better chance, according to you.
