We’ve rounded up seven of our favourites from days gone by… Honda S2000. There’s just something about that shooting-brake silhouette that makes the P1800 one of the coolest cars of all time, and it’s a shape we can see working very well with the current Volvo design language.

As markets, technology and consumer tastes change, so do car manufacturers’ model ranges. Unfortunately, this can lead to the demise of some much-loved nameplates – culled at the hands of the company accountants.

We miss some of these cars like we do departed relatives, and many enthusiasts take it as a personal insult if a manufacturer drops a model range that’s dear to their hearts. We’ve rounded up seven of our favourites from days gone by…

Family hatchbacks ‘have survived’ the SUV onslaught

  Family hatchbacks ‘have survived’ the SUV onslaught Think the SUV is killing off everything in its wake? Think again! The post Family hatchbacks ‘have survived’ the SUV onslaught appeared first on Motoring Research.However, a sector that has emerged relatively unscathed from the onslaught is the C-sector medium-sized family hatchback market. Now, Glass’s research has reinforced just how well the family hatch – cars such as the Volkswagen Golf, Ford Focus and Vauxhall Astra – is doing right now.

Many much-loved nameplates have disappeared over the years. Here are seven of the best we think should be re-introduced. There’s just something about that shooting-brake silhouette that makes the P1800 one of the coolest cars of all time, and it’s a shape we can see working very well with the

Honda S2000

The current Honda performance range operates at extreme ends of the performance spectrum – there’s the £30k Civic Type R and the £140k NSX. A reborn S2000 would, in our eyes, be a brilliant addition to the range, especially if it channels the character of the original.

The old car is a Japanese performance icon, with an engine that would rev to a staggering 9,000rpm – with peak power not arriving until 7,500rpm. That meant that performance from the 2.0-litre VTEC engine was hard-won but utterly intoxicating.

VW Caddy pickup

Name a small pickup truck that you can buy right now in the UK. We’ll wait. You can’t think of one, can you? While small, car-based pickups used to be common, they’ve all been phased out in favour of massive, bloated trucks – united in their goal to carry over a tonne in the load bed to qualify for tax-busting commercial vehicle status.

Murray still hopeful for Wimbledon with comeback 'getting closer'

  Murray still hopeful for Wimbledon with comeback 'getting closer' Almost a year after his last competitive match, Andy Murray is relieved to be closing in on a return to action ahead of Wimbledon.Andy Murray is still hopeful of being in contention at Wimbledon this year after what he concedes has been a "very slow" injury recovery.

The iconic McLaren F1 is about to make a reinvented comeback , so we got thinking about what else we’d like to see return from the mists of time. Someone at Modena needs to right that wrong and build an out-and-out, cutting-edge performance car . BMW 507.

Ford's languishing Lincoln luxury brand has been on the comeback trail lately. Half truck, half muscle car . You can make the argument that the Chevrolet El Camino and its Ford rival, the Ranchero, were the 1970's precursor to the modern crossover.

We say bring back small pickup trucks, such as the VW Caddy, for those who need load-lugging ability but don’t want a vehicle the size of a planet with an agricultural diesel engine under the bonnet.

Citroen DS

Citroen split off its DS nameplate a few years ago into a totally separate sub-brand, but the reborn company is yet to produce anything worthy of carrying the iconic badge. The original Citroen DS was an incredibly beautiful luxury car with a true ‘magic carpet’ ride – so far, all the modern DS has given us is a cute supermini, an awful hatchback, a bloated and uncomfortable executive car and a brash SUV.

Come on, DS – give the people what they’re crying out for. In our minds, we’re picturing avant-garde styling aboard a platform shared with the Peugeot 508. The interior must be spacious and quirky but, crucially, it has to have hydraulic suspension. We’d buy it in a heartbeat.

Audi to launch 5G-connected cars by 2020

  Audi to launch 5G-connected cars by 2020 Audi has revealed more information on its plans to launch 5G-connected cars by 2020. While the alliance was formed in 2016, new details offer insight into how the technology will work when it launches in the next two years. The set-up will precede fully autonomous driving, offering “additional help” to make city driving safer and more efficient.

Mazda RX-7

Although Mazda made a successor to the RX-7 in the RX-8, it failed to capture the essence of the legendary rotary machine.

Over the course of a 24-year production run and three model generations – the last of which was arguably the greatest – the wankel-powered monster gained fame for its incredible driving experience and glorious rotary engine note, wrapped up in ever-more sleek and sexy bodies.

Mazda is on a roll at the moment, and we think there’s no better time than now for it to reintroduce its most famous machine.

Renault Espace

Renault does actually produce its fifth-generation Espace for the continental market – the nameplate was pulled from the UK because of slow sales. But the current incarnation is more SUV than MPV and strays about as far from the original Espace’s formula as it’s possible to get.

At one point, the Espace was the best MPV on the roads. We want to see a return to that with good driving manners, palatial space in a clever and uniquely French interior and seven interchangeable, removable and hugely comfortable seats.

Toyota MR2

Mid-engined sports cars used to be cheap and attainable – now they’re £50k status symbols. Toyota’s MR2 was one of the most popular of these old-school pocket rockets, having been introduced in the 1980s and soldiering on until 2007.

Though the GT86 fills the gap in Toyota’s range for a reasonably priced, sporty machine, we miss the MR2 and the route it represented to affordable mid-engined ownership.

Volvo P1800

Sensible and Swedish they may be, but Volvo’s latest range of products is also seriously stylish. Just the time for a reborn version of the P1800 then, right?

There’s just something about that shooting-brake silhouette that makes the P1800 one of the coolest cars of all time, and it’s a shape we can see working very well with the current Volvo design language. Heck, hand it over to Polestar and we’ll gladly take a performance version too…
