3. Isuzu Impulse
The Isuzu brand wasn’t known for developing sports cars into the ’90s. But at the start of the decade, there was one. If it looks familiar, that’s because the Impulse shared its sheet metal with the Storm. The overall design of the Impulse was very dated, even at the time of its release. There was a hatchback version of the Impulse that was also worth noting, although it didn’t offer a lot in terms of features.
The Impulse could have been a success for the Isuzu brand. But at the time of release, the company was shifting gears toward developing sport utility vehicles. Had the Impulse had a better design and a more powerful engine, it might have made it into the next generation of sports cars.
