14 Cars Axed in 2012

4. Maybach

Reports of Daimler losing almost half-a-million for each Maybach sold, the ultra-luxury brand got the axe this year and was officially proclaimed dead. With the Type 57 priced from $376,300 to $416,200 while the Type 62 ranged from $427,700 to $467,600, Maybach models boasted a hefty price tag without a real selling point. Dealers were granted up to $100,000 in cash rebates to get rid of the remaining inventory this year.

    Gallant or Mitsubishi Lancer Ralliart?

  • The picture is a Lancer, not a Galant

    Test drove a ZDX once. It really was an abysmally bad car, though very surrounding and comfortable inside. You felt like you were in a high-tech spaceship… however… with the view that one would expect from inside a proper spaceship – nothing. Tiny, tiny windows, huge blindspots. I’d classify the car as downright dangerous, until self-driving cars with collision sensors all around them become the norm 😉
