Kia sold a Borrego? Huh.

Saturn Aura (2007-2009)
Based on the Chevy Malibu, the Aura had all the right stuff—except the automaker's name in front of it. Saturn closed up shop in 2009 and the Aura didn't come back. "Probably the best car on that list," says one of our editors. Is that like having the record for the most home runs in the minor leagues?

Lexus LFA (2012)
Wait, what? Who put this list together? I love the LFA! It was a V-10 Lexus that shot up to 60 mph in like 3 seconds. I mean, yeah, initially Lexus only let you "lease" the LFA with the option to buy one to control buyers and resale, and yeah, it took them like 10 years to make it and so what if it cost $450,000 to buy ... I get it now.

GMC Envoy XUV (2004-2005)
Is it a truck? Is it an SUV? Nope, it's just the automotive Quasimodo. The Envoy XUV had a short life thanks to that chopped and long rear end, terrible fuel economy, and impatience with a rear end that opened like a Wagonaire. When Studebaker did it better, you're not long for this world, we think.
