19. Plymouth Sapporo
New smog regulations hurt the automotive market during the ’70s. The Plymouth brand was working to attract buyers back into their showrooms. The Plymouth Sapporo is a forgettable little car that was designed to compete with the imports. This car was notoriously underpowered and was designed to take on the Corolla. In general, this was one of the cars that nearly pushed Chrysler into bankruptcy.
The car didn’t have any features which would remotely attract buyers, and the K-Car was brought in years later to undo the damage. When you think of the Plymouth Sapporo, you probably won’t remember the car. It was just a forgettable choice that really won’t go down in history.
