List of Recent Death Car Companies, Defunte & Bankrupt Car Companies
Self-death companies have met their demise for a variety of reasons. For some automakers dead it was the lack of a desirable enough selection, for others too much selection and high marketing costs, and for still others the myopic focus on producing gasoline-consuming cars when consumers quickly changed their priorities. of purchases towards cars that consume fuel and for others still, the fault lies simply with the economy.
Whatever the reason for a car maker’s bankruptcy, there have been literally thousands of car makers since the start of the car that went out of business. A large percentage of this figure is due to the fact that in the early years of the automobile, it was common to see people building their cars in their garages and selling some to friends and neighbors. Due to the massive number of deceased auto companies around the world, we decided to simply compile a list of the most recent dead auto companies (which went bankrupt after 1960) that most people would be most familiar with.
Which car company is the biggest bankruptcy? Well, that would be a nice debate, but one of the most notable would be Edsel. Ford invested heavily in the production and marketing of this dead car, which was immediately rejected by the public as too expensive and unattractive (especially the grille). Write a comment and tell us which failed car company you would like to be brought back to life and why.

Pontiac officially closes its doors: Halloween night takes away another famous American brand
On October 31, Pontiac closed its doors for good: after 84 years of activity and over 40 million cars produced, the well-known American manufacturer was swallowed up by the aftermath of the economic crisis that hit the car sector very hard.

On October 31, Pontiac closed its doors for good: after 84 years of activity and over 40 million cars produced, the well-known American manufacturer was swallowed up by the aftermath of the economic crisis that hit the car sector very hard. That of the manufacturer of the GTO and the Firebird was a “planned death”: it was Genel Motors that found itself in need to pull the plug. Exactly as done with Hummer, a brand already buried and forgotten; there is a need for more humane cars, with more acceptable consumption and emissions. Suitable for the wallets of users who are no longer economically carefree. And to think that a few decades ago the brand played with monsters like Ford and Chevrolet.
Over the years, with all the mitigating circumstances of the world crisis, GM has put its efforts to make the brand fail with models that do not quite live up to the coat of arms and expectations. Production of the Pontiacs had stopped about a year ago, while the unsold was officially treated until 31 October. Precisely the date on which the cancellation of all American dealerships was scheduled. Goodbye Pontiac; we hope this is just a pause waiting for a new and well-deserved relaunch.
Pontiac (“Pontiac”) is a now default American brand of cars produced from 1926 – 2009, and its manufacturer was founded in 1899 as an independent company for the production of carriages.[specify] . Since 1926, it has been a division of the American company General Motors and was closed in 2010 due to GM’s financial problems. Pontiac was headquartered inDetroit,Michigan,USA.
Brand and company history
Pontiac Spring and Wagon Works were founded in July 1899 by Albert G. North and Harry G. Hamilton. The name of the brand was in honor of the Indian leader named Pontiac, who in 1763 – 1766. fought against the British colonists in the vicinity of the Great Lakes and in the territories of the current states ofIllinoisandOhio. Initially, the company produced carriages. It was joined in 1905 by the Rapid Motor Vehicle Company(a future division of GMC Truck), founded two years earlier. In 1907 at the Chicago Auto Show (English)rus.It weighed 450 kg and had a two-cylinder engine that developed 12hp of thrust. With.
In 1909, GM acquires the first 50% of the shares, and then, after the death of Edward Murphy, the rest. Until 1926, the division was engaged in the production of Oakland cars. (English)Rus
In 1926, Oakland and Pontiac become two different brands,
and then the company becomes known as the “Pontiac Motor Division”.
At the same time, the company’s first car comes out -the Pontiac 6-27followed by cars of theBig Six series and the first eight-cylinder model. In 1933,
Harry Klinger became the company’s CEO, the company produces updated models with 6-cylinder engines equipped with independent suspension.
All the Indian tribes of eastern North America entered into an alliance with Pontiac. The fight against the British was quite fruitful, but in 1766, after a long siege of Detroit, Pontiac was forced to make peace and recognize the authority of the English king. He subsequently died under unclear circumstances. In honor of Pontiac, cities in the states of Michigan, Illinois, Indiana, and also in Quebec, Canada was named.
The Pontiac brand almost completely repeated the story of its famous Native American namesake. The last Pontiac rolled off the General Motors assembly line more than five years ago, and there are fewer and fewer of these cars on the road every day. Fewer Catalinas, fewer Bonnevilles, fewer GTOs, fewer Trans Ams, and Aztecs will soon run out too. Naturally, collectors and administrations of automobile museums have already taken care of acquiring the most interesting specimens for their expositions. But the majority, as usual, will be scrapped.
