14. Chevrolet Calibra
In 1989, GM subsidiary Opel introduced an advanced sports coupe called the Calibra. The car featured modern, aerodynamic styling. Chevy built a lineup of cars that had four and six-cylinder engines with front-wheel drive. And at the time, it was one of the best affordable sports cars on sale in Europe.
However, GM decided to reintroduce this car in South America, and not as the Opel but as the Chevrolet Calibra. They sold the car with minimal modifications. Top brass at GM even considered bringing it to America, but that didn’t happen.
