28: 1976 Porsche 924
When Porsche was trying to reinvent its brand image, the classic 911 sports cars were the same old design. While that design had propelled Porsche to many victories on the racing circuit, consumers were ready for something new. The 924 was a much-hyped update of the Porsche lineup with a design that was quite modern for the period. Sadly, things didn’t pan out quite that way and the 1976 Porsche 924 didn’t fare well with consumers.
Once again, reliability was the main problem with the car, and repairs were expensive at the time. There was a recession going on and the V8 engine was not known for being the most fuel-efficient option. Design-wise, the signature Porsche quality just wasn’t there anymore.
