It is always interesting to remember the models which are no longer in production. People from Budget Direct have dealt with another “what if” scenario and reimagined some well-known cars which were produced in the past as contemporary 2018 models.
What you should know is that some of these vehicles you are about to see have not been all that popular, which doesn’t mean that they should have been left out. Let’s check out cool and some not so cool models as new machines.
1. AMC Gremlin
While this AMC Gremlin appears to be a Hyundai Veloster, it is not – it’s the Gremlin. This car was produced back in the 1970s, and it had a white strap on the side. It was not the most loveable model you could find on the market, but people liked one thing about it – they loved to hate it! The reimagined version reminds us of the Veloster, and its front is slightly awkward, but the front end of the original Gremlin was weird as well.
2. DeLorean DMC-12
DeLorean DMC-12 is not completely died out, and you will be able to buy it in 2018. The DeLorean Motor Company was re-established again and the announcement from a couple of years ago said that people would be able to buy the new DMC-12 model. However, the number of the vehicles produced is very limited and even if you want this car for yourself, you might find it difficult to get one. Follow the company’s website and check out the updates on the subject.
3. Oldsmobile Cutlass
There were several models which had the name Cutlass in the history of the auto industry. First of all, there was iconic rear-wheel-drive muscle car which was sold in the 1960s. After that, NASCAR race car with the same name debuted in the 1970s, while one decade later a rear-wheel drive two-door sedan appeared. The good thing about the rendered 2018 model is that the designers focused on the oldest Cutlass versions and this new one looks good.
4. Rover 75
This car may look funny, but this is not the reason why it is on the list. The front end of the Rover 75 seems weird, but if you are a Rover fan, that front grill is going to put a smile on your face. The nose is the only thing that is controversial, and the rest of the vehicle looks proportionate. The new Rover 75 will easily take on the modern BMW and Audi cars. Watch out for it.
5. Tatra JK 2500
If you haven’t heard of this vehicle, that is okay. Tatra JK 2500 was a sports car assembled back in the 1950s which featured an air-cooled V8 engine, large tires, and an elegant design. While this render brings back the original color, it still isn’t attention-drawing as the real-life car was.
6. Plymouth Barracuda
You may not have heard of the Tatra, but this car must be familiar to you. The best thing about Plymouth Barracuda is that it is available on the market today but under a different name – the Dodge Challenger. Even though Barracuda exists in some form, it doesn’t prevent us to render it and bring back that vintage feel and the Hemi stripe at the rear end of the vehicle. But between reimagined Barracuda and the new Challenger – we must go for the Challenger.
7. Saab PhoeniX
We truly miss the Saab PhoeniX, and we fully understand why Budget Direct decided to render the concept car. Back in 2011, the company was at the edge of bankruptcy, and the PhoeniX concept was their manifestation of revival. Meanwhile, this new version of the PhoeniX looks phenomenal.
