Each family has the black sheep, and the same can be said for vehicles that left their mark on the automotive world.
We are talking about certain versions of the iconic sports cars that were so incompatible with their character that managed to ruin their credentials in a real world.

Ok, so there is the certain pattern here, with most vehicles here being automatic or convertibles, and no one really liked them in the first place and to this day, they’re considered the black sheep of their respective range.
Just remember how unsuitable most torque-converter automatics of the era were for the driving thrills, with their slow changes and their general negative impact on the performance.
