17: 1963 Studebaker Avanti R2
Studebaker was a major player in the automotive industry until the company’s eventual collapse. The Avanti R2 was sort of the final hurrah for the company. The interesting look of the car was perhaps a bit overrated at the time, and its performance didn’t add up either. Most of the automotive consumers were turned off by the look of the car, which didn’t help the sales. That’s not to say that the Avanti was a horrible car, but it didn’t live up to expectations.
The Avanti did have a lot of shortcomings that have lead it to the junkyard. A questionable design and even more questionable build quality just didn’t sit well with consumers. Sadly, the Avanti R2 is a forgotten relic of a bygone era that has long passed.
