Show me cars and trucks that were greenlit for production and killed prior to launch.

These are the misfits, the cars that ALMOST made it. Maybe they should have made it, but circumstance got in the way.

My example: Dodge M80.

Simple, honest, basic compact truck. Color impregnated plastic materials used throughout. Approved, killed at the 11th hour after full development.

So, we’ve got the M80, the ST, the ME412, and two engines. Surely there are more greenlit cars out there that got chopped at the 11th hour...
