2006 Pontiac Solstice

Have you ever seen an exotic car that was built from scarp parts? How about one which had a pretty stupid looking cockpit? This was supposed to be Pontiac’s saving grace. Yet, it was poorly executed and underpowered, thereby resulting in a four wheel crap fest that nobody wanted to have in their own garages.

1999 Toyota Echo

If you thought the Tercel was pretty bad, Toyota decided to follow that up with something equally terrible. It was pretty much a vehicle made out of plastic. Not even the durable kind, but the type that would comprise a bucket with a mop in it. Yep, this was just not up to par with industry standards at all. 

1990 Chevrolet Lumina APV

 This van had a plasticky body which was just terrible. The nose resembled that of an aardvark, and the dashboard was way too huge. This model looked more like a Dustbuster. You’d have to have grown up in the 90s to get that reference.

1997 General Motors Corporation EV1

This was an all-electric car that left many people disappointed. While merit is given to the use of advanced technology, it drove pretty terribly. I also had enough range to compete with an RC car. For something that was meant to innovate, people had to go back to the drawing board after this ugly disaster.

1974 Datsun F10

This was the first Nissan model which featured front wheel drive. However, it didn’t give people much to be pleased about as far as looks were concerned. Even its operation was rough-hewn so to speak. It was renamed the Cherry upon being sold in Japan, but it sure did feel rotten to drive it.

2001 Jaguar X-Type

The Jaguar brand has always been associated with luxury and sophistication. Hence, when the X-Type was released, it was like the company itself was destroying its own image. Taking cues from the Ford Mondeo, this model was made out of sheet metal. That’s not exactly the most secure material for any car, and certainly proved that even Jaguar could turn out to be idiots in the car manufacturing game.
