14 The Cars That Never Existed

The Cars That Never Existed

We often see car prototypes while visiting exhibitions. It takes much time and efforts to create a new car and even much more to eliminate mistakes. But only a small part of new decisions reaches the plant. Most part of the models are left in drawings or single quantities. Let’s have a look at those cars that have never existed.

VAZ E-1101. An experimental model of 1970.

VAZ 2103 “Universal”, an experimental models of 1976.

VAZ 2105 “Zhiguli”, an experimental model of 1976.

VAZ 2107, a modernized experimental model of 1986.

VAZ E 2122 ‘1976.

VAZ-Porsche 2103, prototype of 1976.

VAZ 2802-01 “Poni”, an experimental model of 1980.

It is known that the amount of Zhiguli cars has been restricted for many years. The Moskvitch Auto Plant also tried to expand its nomenclature. Moscow Plant of Light Cars,  401E-424E, Moskvitch, an experimental model of 1949.

Moscow Plant of Light Cars, “Moskvitch” А9 Prototype 1957. The microbus was treated as a light car. It was supplied with Moskvitch-407 motor and an experimental gear box. Later the plant lacked the space for its production and all the works stopped.

    And what about Syrena Sport ? Such a beautiful car that was built only in three prototype models ?

  2. Czarina Mona says:

    It looks like they performed the same ‘experiment’ 1000x in a row. Either that or they gave all the design jobs to beet farmers.

  3. HoerenSloep says:

    The cars named VAZ are all Lada’s to me. Even the badges agree.

    The IMZ-NAMI- 450 Belka is so totally ugly it’s cool in it’s own right. The ZIL E169-A truck is almost a dead ringer for one of the old Ford Cabover Delivery trucks that were produced from the 1960’s to the early 90’s.

  5. BlowME says:

    Some of those cars looked pretty good, like Moskvitch-С1 but only the ugliest left to be produced…

  6. Steamed McQueen says:

    Many of them resemble the vehicles that actually did make it into production. One wonders what was ‘experimental’ about them.

  7. Dudek says:

    Syrena Sport it was a Polish car

  8. Larry says:

    I think the experiments should have shown if it was possible to copy FIATs without buying the original plans.

  9. Ben says:

    Shame, alot of these cars would’ve been really nice.

  10. Tobbe says:

    The C1 prototype looks like a SAAB 99 :)

  11. javox says:
