12 car designs that polarized auto enthusiasts

Tesla Cybertruck: Tesla Chief Executive Elon Musk wanted a pickup truck inspired by the dystopian science fiction film "Blade Runner." He got it. But many others didn't get it, including investors who sold Tesla shares after seeing the Cybertruck's triangular profile and not-quite-shatterproof glass.

Pontiac Aztek: Under fire in the early 2000s for dull design, General Motors' top executives lit the green light for a vehicle like nothing ever seen before. The Aztek attracted a cult following, but its polarizing design had more haters than fans.

Chrysler PT Cruiser: The PT Cruiser caused a sensation when it was unveiled in 2000 with its retro gangster wagon styling. The "car" was actually a truck for fuel economy purposes, a boost for the former DaimlerChrysler.

Chevrolet Avalanche: The Avalanche answered the question, what would a Chevy Suburban look like if it was a pickup truck? The original models sported gobs of plastic body cladding. Later versions looked more like regular trucks.

Nissan Cube: For a brief moment, U.S. consumers were captivated by small, boxy cars designed for the idiosyncratic Japanese market. The Nissan Cube captured the fad. But then it was over.

Renault Avantime: The Avantime represented a distinctively French effort to combine elements of a coupe and a "grand tourer" wagon. Even French consumers didn't like it, and the car died after two years.

Hummer H2/H3: Inspired by enthusiasm for civilian versions of the Hummer military vehicles, General Motors transformed its large Chevy Tahoe SUV into the garish, chrome-decked Hummer H2.  A smaller Chevy truck later became the basis for the Hummer H3. GM's Hummer franchise collapsed in the financial crisis and GM's subsequent bankruptcy. GM is now looking at reviving the name for an electric truck.

DeLorean: The original DeLorean sports car had a stainless steel body and gull wing doors but very little under the hood. The car sold poorly and the company failed. But the DeLorean has had a rich second life as the co-star of the Back to the Future movie franchise.

BMW i3: The i3 is a small city car that BMW used as a test bed for extensive use of carbon fiber body construction and battery electric propulsion. The car's pod-like design separates it from the sleek looks of conventional BMWs like the 3 Series, and so do the i3's relatively modest sales.

Yugo: The boxy Yugo subcompact was designed to be cheap, not stylish. Derivative of an older Fiat, the Yugo defined the term econobox. Unable to comply with U.S. environmental rules, Yugo folded in the U.S. in 1992.
