18. 1968 Subaru 360

The Subaru 360 was a tiny, adorable, bubble-shaped car that resembled the Volkswagen Beetle. The 360 looks cute, but don’t be deceived by looks, this car is terrible. Less than ten feet long and powered by a 25 horsepower two-stroke engine, the Subaru 360 goes nowhere fast. Top speed of the 360 was 55 mph and it took 37.5 seconds to go from zero to 50 mph. The doors are hinged at the rear edges and open into the wind. There are no burst-proof latches and the drivers door cannot be locked from the inside. God forbid you didn’t fully latch the door before you started driving, as a burst of air at as low as 20 mph would fling your door open with ease. If you encountered a vehicle you needed to pass (which would probably be a feat in itself) it took over 30 seconds to go from 30 to 50 mph.
