While there are plenty of products, services, and other items that are deservedly shut down. After all, does the world really need New Coke, blacksmiths, and witch burnings? No, it doesn’t.

However, at times some awfully neat things (Breaking Bad anyone?) meet their ends too soon. This is no different when it comes to cars. There have been some great cars that were pulled from production and need to be brought back. They are:

  • The Ford Ranger needs to come back to meet the needs of those who do not need a pickup that is large, powerful, and costly as an F-Series pickup. Bring it back Ford!
  • The Pontiac G8 went the way of the entire Pontiac brand when it went bankrupt back in 2009. While there is no need for the brand to be resurrected, this powerful, rear-wheel drive wagon needs to come back.
  • Looking something like a wicked combination of a Camaro and a Corvette, the hatchback/sedan Saab 900 was one cool ride. Its convertible, turbo model ought to be revived.
  • With loads of lightweight aluminum in its body and a mid-mounted 3.2 V6 power plant, the Acura NSX, my favorite car on the list, was a thrill to ride. Not only does the NSX need a new life, Honda is adding it back to its Acura stable next year. Way to go Honda!

Sorry, Pinto, you did not make the list.

What about you guys? What other models ought to be revived?
