    Citroen. They are a queer one and Citroen is French for "Lemon" so even a winner name. The French got a weird idea of what a successful branding name even MEANS IMO.

    . All cars get sold to SOMEONE... after all, somebody wanted the BATMOBILE to go to baseball games. Gawdy as it was. Will it become a collector item?

    .Then there is Ford FARGO

    Many do not make it as imports because they are TOO LOW a standard that Importers decide what comes from overseas...as they want to sell it, not get stuck with it.

      Citroën is named after the founder, André Citroën. His designs were years ahead of their time and he also had the idea of applying double-helical cut gears to his gearboxes. A different word, “citron” is French for “lemon”. They also have another word, “stupide” which describes your ignorant answer.

    1973 Dodge, Chevrolet, Ford, Chrysler. They were still big, but HP was cut in half.

      Lower compression ratios necessary to meet new emission laws did lower power but not by half . . . . coincided with switch from gross brake horsepower to net (an attempt to camoflage the reduction)

    Cadillac CImarron, Pontiac Aztec, most Oldsmobiles after 1953, Ford Mustang II, Renault Fuego, AMC Pacer, Hillman Avenger, Simca . . .and many more.

    Am not including Studebaker since so many had brilliant styling but poor engineering/performance . . . . while some had dismal everything like the Scotsman.

      I agree about the Trabant, but the question was about what car was so inferior in performance and design that it defies belief that they ever sold. The Trabant fits that description perfectly: it only sold because buyers had no choice. It was a Trabby or a bicycle.
