Let’s be honest, cars have become more of an accessory these days, and people are looking at things other than the engine and mileage when they are choosing which car to buy. A number of rather great cars being made, that were almost immediately or eventually forgotten and disregarded.
1. Lexus LFA
Lexus LFA saw limited production between 2010 and 2012, and offered some incredible features such as the carbon fiber body and a mighty V10. Although it wasn’t and still isn’t a very practical car by any means, it’s one of those special models we get to see once every decade or so.
2. BMW 3 Series Sports Wagon
While Europeans appreciate the wagon form for its practicality, customers in the United States simply don’t like them. This BMW 3 Sports Wagon is incredibly beautiful, yet American drivers opt to go for X1 instead.
3. Jaguar XJ
Jaguar XJ sports a timeless and recognizable appearance that many are beginning to appreciate. Even so, given the choice between this Jaguar and a Mercedes in the same class, buyers choose the German almost every time. This makes little sense as the XJ not only offers more than his German counterpart, but it’s also noticeably cheaper.
4. Mazda 6
This Mazda is probably the most under appreciated mid-sized sedan on the market today. It sports an attractive exterior design, great performance, and relatively low price in comparison with the competition. Mazda 6 just can’t challenge the likes of a Toyota Camry when it comes to sales numbers.
5. Porsche Cayman
Porsche pushed their 911 design through express evolution and the result was impressive. This mid-engined sports car took away some of the downsides of the 911 and came with the performance any driver dreams about. Yet, 911 is still the better selling car.
6. Dodge Viper
Dodge Viper used to be a legendary car when it first came out in the early 90s. Along side various Ferraris and Lamborghinis, Dodge Viper had its poster taped to millions of teenage bedroom walls around the world. Today, the situations is very different, and this incredible car has somewhat disappeared into obscurity as newer, more exciting models took the lead.
Lotus represents core values a perfect car should offer. High fidelity, incredible performance, and an overall function-over-form design. It seems a car with very sparse offering of features is not ringing well with modern consumers.
8. Dodge Avenger
Dodge Avenger was a great car, in and out. It offered a bunch of equipment as standard, the interior was actually nice compared to what Dodge usually sells at a premium, and the engine selection offered something for everyone.

9. Mazda BT-50
Mazda BT-50 is fairly popular truck, especially in Australia where Utes, as they like to call these vehicles, are a necessity. Mazda is just not one of those go-to brands when it comes to pickup trucks. Even though it shares a lost the parts with its cousin, the Ford Ranger.
