For some reason the Chevrolet Code 130R popped into my head today. Back in 2012 Chevy actually thought people might want to buy a small lightweight RWD sports coupe. By 2015 they had decided that people really just wanted ever larger CUVs.
I bet they would have screwed it up anyway. Corporate grill, Camaro tail lights. Knowing GM it would have ended up being FWD with a 4 speed auto by the time it was said and done.
