Ford Escort (1968)
This Ford never dislodged the VW Beetle and Opel Kadett as the top dogs. Still, the balance sheet for this small Ford with the "dog bone" radiator grill is clear. By the time the new generation came along in 1974, 2.14 million Escorts were sold.
Porsche 911 (1963)
The core of the Zuffenhausen brand. The successor to the 356, known as the 901, ultimately helped Porsche achieve its breakthrough as a sports car maker. It was renamed the 911 in 1964. The next generation is coming at the end of 2011.
BMW 02er-Baureihe (1966)
The strong-selling BMW 1600-2 was launched in 1966. It was only in 1977, after 11 years and 825,000 units built, that the model gave way to the 3 Series.
Mercedes Benz W114 (1968)
The "Stroke-8" represented intrinsic Mercedes market values: seriousness, quality, conservatism. Production of the mid-range model continued until 1977.
Aston Martin DB5 (1963)
James Bond's car in "Goldfinger" even left its successful predecessor the DB4 in the dust. Just 1,000 units of the DB5 were built.
Alfa Romeo Giulia (1962)
The successor to the Giulietta. The Giulia was the best-selling Alfa for a long time, with more than a half-million units built.
Jaguar E-Type (1961)
Perhaps the most beautiful, winning, and legendary sports car of the post-war period, at least in British production.
Ford Mustang (1964)
After three months, the planned annual production of 22,000 cars was already on US roads.
Opel GT (1968)
"Only flying is more beautiful." That was the flounder's claim. It had capable Kadett technology on the inside. By 1973, Opel built more than 100,000 units of the "Corvette made in Bochum."
Renault 4 (1961)
Renault's counter-design to Citroen's "Duck." About 8 million units of the brand's first world car came off the line over more than 30 years.
