All the cars being discontinued after 2019
Models come and go like a revolving door every year in the automotive industry. Ideas don’t pan out, tastes change, and car companies run out of time or money. There are tons of reasons for certain models to be retired, and this list contains plenty of them.
Newer cars and even much older models made to the exits this year. Some of them make us sad, while others make us shrug. And even though crossovers are such a hot commodity, there are plenty eliminated in 2019. Sedans and cars got the worst of it, but even a poorly conceived crossover can’t succeed in the highly competitive market we have today. Go ahead and click on the first slide to start the slideshow.
Vacuuming Legend: Washington Post - October 3, 2008: "The incoming Obama administration has notified all politically-appointed ambassadors that they must vacate their posts as of Jan. 20, the day President-elect Barack Obama takes the oath of office, a State Department official said. The clean slate will open up prime opportunities for the president-elect to reward political supporters with posts in London, Paris, Tokyo and the like. The notice to diplomatic posts was issued this week. Political ambassadors sometimes are permitted to stay on briefly during a new administration, but the sweeping nature of the directive suggests that Obama has little interest in retaining any of Bush's ambassadorial appointees. Most ambassadors, of course, are foreign service officers, but often the posts involving the most important bilateral relations (such as with Great Britain, Japan and India) or desirable locales (such as the Bahamas) are given to close friends and well-heeled contributors of the president." --- Written by Glenn Kessler
