I liked my SVT Contour. I traded it in for a new 01 Bullitt Mustang. Later found out someone at the dealership blew the engine a week after I traded it.

The Viper was actually replaced by the Merc AMG GTR which basically has the same long nose stubby butt, as the Viper GTS. I LOVE the Viper, I also love the Merc AMG GTR, viper more tho.

I passed on the Focus RS because of the open deck engine design that directly caused the head gasket issues. I was reading reports of people needing new engines in as little as 5000 miles of ownership. So I now have a 2018 BMW M240i with the B58 engine.

Majority of those cars no one could afford anyways because they get priced out of normal people's ranges. Another reason the Viper failed is because they released it in the middle of a recession, hell two of the cars on this list were released in the middle of a recession where people had no interest buying new cars.

Before the Chevy SS was a Chevy, it was a Pontiac G8, and before that it was the Pontiac GTO, both incredible cars that didn't sell because GM was in the process of getting rid of Oldsmobile, Pontiac, Saturn, SAAB, Hummer, and being taken over by Obama's Socialist government. They kept 1/3 ownership for the government, 1/3 for the union, and 1/3 for "special" stockholders. Hundreds of thousands of regular stockholders lost the GM portion of their retirement funds. Then they put a woman in charge, who didn't know much about cars and couldn't care less. Now they are making, for the most part, Trucks. By the way, Chevy still made the Chevy SS for Police cars for a few years after keeping it from us, because they had contracts to fulfill. They are hot but they have interiors like a Taxi, and a plastic back seat to carry drunks to the station so the vomit and bodily fluids wouldn't stain the upholstery. A real sleeper if you can find a good one.

LFA was released to dealers on January 24, 2011, not in 2012. Nearly all the dates in this video are 100% wrong too. SMH. Contour was out in '94, SVT was shown in late 1996 and went on sale by February 1997. It had a 3 year run, not 2 years. Focus RS was out earlier than 2017, Subaru Baja was announced in 2001-02, and Gen 5 Viper was out in 2012. This video fails to even touch on why the Viper failed. It was a manual only vehicle, against much better automatics, unlike the original.

And GM gave Chyrsler Airflow a very bad reputation. Chrysler tried to save his car and reputation, but couldn´t. People believed that it was a dangerous car.

You should've added the KIA Borrego as an honorable mention. It was a nice looking SUV that came with a V8. It was sort of like a cheaper Touareg. The only problem was 1) it was pretty expensive for a KIA, and 2) it was released at the worst possible time. We were headlong into the Great Recession AND there was a gas crisis. Driving a new, gas guzzling SUV was way out of fashion at the time. It was killed by the socio-economic conditions of the time. KIA waited a year too long to release it. Just one year earlier, and it would've been a smash hit.

Best comment I ever heard about the Viper, was while waiting for my car being serviced in a megaplex dealership. The had a new black Viper Coupe in the waiting area, with the window sticker on a wood stand next to it. A middle aged woman came into the dealership and wandered over to the car looked it over then looked at the sticker and exclaimed “$86,000 ? For a DODGE!!?” Pretty much summed it up.

Even though Holden has been shut down here in Australia any hsv or commodore ss is sort after and the Americans keep coming and buying what they can. Probably because they are better than anything American gm could produce

I think another reason for the focus rs is the competition. You got a lot of hot hatches and the focus is (from a quality standpoint) the last one of these. And to be honest, the performance is mediocre at best...

The first time I saw an Avanti, it was parked nose-in in a garage. Seeing only the tail lights as I walked by I thought the car look incredible. Squat stance, wide rear tire, and very aggressive looking. I looked it up online, saw the front and --at first-- didn't believe it was the same car. Quite the let down the front of that car is. lol
