Top 5 worst selling cars

Auto Tech
Now, you can slice and dice a list of worst cars a hundred ways, but I�ve chosen 5 cars that bombed largely because their tech or engineering innovations did a huge flop. I�m B.C. with the Top 5 Worst Selling Cars that tried too hard to deliver something we didn�t want. 5 - Plymouth Prowler: 8.200 The Prowler was advanced for its heavy use of bonded Aluminum construction but they wasted the technique on those absurdly overposturing outboard wheels with pontoon fenders -- that�s an Indy car cue, so you better back it up with more than a V6 and a 4-speed automatic. 4 - Pontiac Aztek: 5,020 Look, I hate to be predictable, but the Aztek was a mess with its �high tech� look of conflicting body panels. In fact, the Aztek was one of the first cars developed primarily on a computer. Maybe if they had done more physical mock ups they would have seen this thing for what it was an killed it. Being #4 on a list is about the kindest comment it ever earned. 3 - Studebaker Avanti: 4,600 It pains me to put the Avanti on here, but it was a dud. The Raymond Loewy team designed a hot looked with rare front discs and an optional supercharger. But the complexity of fiberglass body production eluded Studie. Production delays led to cancelled orders led to the end of the company. 2 - Lincoln Blackwood: 3,300 This ghettofabulous take on the F-150 converted the bed into a carpeted, power-lidded trunk. Basically, it neutered the a perfectly good pickup, offered you one color and charged you 50 grand in the process. Chevy�s Avalanche sold circles around it by being oddly innovative in a more useful way. 1 - Studebaker Wagonaire - 940 This oddball was a wagon with a roof that retracted from the rear to the front, leaving you with a sort of Ranchero with high sides. Just odd. What do you carry in there? And how you you load it with making your chiro rich? Add in the fact that the roof leaked like a rain forest and this was a piece of engineering before its time. I�m not sure they could pull it off today. To stay on top of all the latest on cars, and their hopefully successful tech innovations, head over to cnet on cars at cnetoncars.com.
