Chevrolet Citation X-11
The Citation X-11 is a very interesting car. It is a compact, front-wheel drive hatchback produced from 1980-1985. But it had a somewhat powerful V6 engine and muscle car looks. It would be best to describe this car as a fine line between an American hot hatch and a late-model muscle car since it features aspects of both segments (via Hagerty).
The Citation was a modern model that Chevrolet needed to fight import models. It came in a wide arrange of flavors. The X-11 featured a 2.8-liter V6 engine and 135 HP. Despite the fact it doesn’t sound much today, it was reliable power for the time. The X-11 had a few more tricks up its sleeves, such as a sports-tuned suspension, sharper steering, and better brakes. The X-11 can be differentiated from the outside by a unique bulged hood and trim details. The magazine testers of the day spoke highly of the X-11 as much more than just a stronger engine and appearance package. Unfortunately, this model is lost in the corridors of time and forgotten by all but die-hard Chevrolet fans.
