2: Ford Mustang
The 1990s Ford Mustangs were some of the worst, both in terms of quality and performance.
GM was outpacing the Mustang 3-to-1 with the Camaro, and part of this was due to the Camaro’s standard Corvette motor. Not only was the Mustang from this era underpowered but it was also ugly to boot. True, you had the Cobra, but how many ordinary drivers were going to get one of those?
Ford had to improvise the Mustang was redesigned later in the decade, but the first couple of years was rough. The car just couldn’t compete with what the market had to offer, and Ford knew it. We’re not sure what the company was thinking with this generation of the Mustang but it was the wrong move.
