Cars We’d Like To See Make A Comback
Thanks to the invention and refinement of the internal combustion engine over the years, we’ve gotten some truly amazing vehicles. More than a few of them reached legendary status, either because of their innovation, styling, performance, or simply because they had to prove something. Whatever the case, these cars had an aura about them that’s not easy to replicate. And while some of these cars have modern-day successors, others are still waiting to be commemorated with their own modern version. Here are 10 cars we think should make a comeback.
Everything You Need To Know About The Lamborghini Huracan STO
The 2021 Huracan STO is the most radical road-going version of the brand’s entry-level supercar.

Just like the people who live in different parts of the globe, the car world is diverse and multicultural. Although many great cars were produced over the years, for one reason or another some of them did not make it to certain regions of the world.
America is one of those places that missed out on some truly epic cars or they simply got lame versions of them, case in point being the BMW M3 E36. Not all is lost, however, as when a car becomes 25 years old, you can import it to the US regardless of whether it passed the required emissions and crash tests. Here’s what cars you can legally import in the U.S. in 2021.

Cars Discontinued in 2020
2020 was a slower-than-usual year for the automotive market. Factories had to shut down due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the global lockdown cancelled nearly all major auto shows, causing delays of new car introductions.

Here’s our list of cars that you won’t be able to buy in North America in 2021.

Despite the current focus being maximizing profit, carmakers occasionally bring back an old name or simply make a modern-day version of an old, legendary car to commemorate its success and to remind us of some of their highlights. Here are 10 such cars.
