16. Renault Floride
The Floride was pretty popular as Renault managed to sell 117,000 of them during its 10-year production run from 1958 to 1968. Based on the mechanics of Renault’s economy 4CV model, the Floride was a cool-looking roadster with a rear-mounted engine (via Renault Classics).
Renault intended to call the car Floride because it would be sold in the USA. But decided to call the model Caravelle for US buyers and Floride for the rest of the world. Interestingly, most of the production did end up in the US as a result. Despite looking elegant, the Caravelle was pretty quiet since the biggest engine was a 1.1-liter four-cylinder with 55 HP.
