2: Chrysler LHS

In the 1990s, Chrysler was trying to position the brand even more upmarket than before. The LHS sedan was designed to complete this mission as the most expensive model. Initially, the LHS had some unique features, such as a built-in car phone. But the initial quality of the LHS was questionable at best, and the car eventually faded into obscurity (via The Truth About Cars).

If you took a look at an old LHS and a Chrysler Concorde, drivers couldn’t tell the difference. Both of these cars were carbon copies of each other and this confused consumers. There were much better luxury sedans on the market than the LHS. Chrysler couldn’t compete with the onslaught of new luxury models coming out.

1: Chrysler LeBaron GTS

In what was meant to be a performance-oriented car, the LeBaron GTS was a four-door hatchback model. The car was based on the Mitsubishi Lancer at the time and had the same turbocharged four-cylinder engine whereas the main LeBaron Convertible and Sedan were based on a cushier riding platform (via All Par).

The LeBaron GTS will go down as one of the weirdest Chrysler models. For a brand that had positioned itself as a luxury car brand, the LeBaron GTS was an oddity. The cheap design and tacky appearance of the car made it seem out of place. Chrysler had more than a few of these failures in the late 1980s and early ’90s.
