1: Ford Probe
The funny thing about the Probe was that it was supposed to be a replacement for the Ford Mustang. But after doing market research on the car, Ford could see that buyers weren’t going for it and it was sold alongside the Mustang. We’re not sure what Ford was thinking with the naming of this car but that’s one reason people want to forget it. On top of that, the bland styling just didn’t stand out like you’d expect a sports car to.
The Probe was unimaginative and the car didn’t bring anything particularly unique to the table. There was a 24V version of the car that got high marks in the performance community, but this car was discontinued shortly after the release. From then on, the Probe trudged on as the also-ran partner of the Mustang until being discontinued.
