14: Ford Probe
The Probe was positioned to replace the Mustang as the sports car in the Ford lineup. But where did the Probe fail? Well for starters the car was a mere shadow of what the Mustang was offering. Although the Mustang line was questionable around this time there still was a great amount of brand loyalty to the car. The Probe had a questionable nameplate, and the styling was about as dry as you could imagine from this time period (via The Motor Digest).
There would go on to be two generations of the Probe for the car to be discontinued in the mid-1990s. The thing with the Probe is that it just didn’t resonate with consumers. The SUV models were already outpacing sports cars hitting the market. With legendary nameplates like the Toyota Supra being discontinued, it was only a matter of time until Ford axed the Probe.
