Every year, some cars depart the automotive market. At times, these nameplates make it back around. Some take a year off before a new generation begins, but some leave for good. With the onset of a heavy EV push, some gas-powered cars are being replaced by electric vehicles with futuristic names.

Here are five cars that didn’t make it to the 2024 model year.

Audi TT

The Audi TT was the luxury market’s answer to the Mazda MX-5 Miata, but that doesn’t mean it would outlast the Mazda. This two-seat sports car came in coupe and convertible body styles. The TT is more affordable than the least-expensive Porsche sports car, making it a joy to drive without costing too much. Unfortunately, this fun and active luxury car didn’t make it to the 2024 model year.

Chrysler 300

It’s been a long time coming, but the Chrysler 300 is finally gone from the market. The current version of this car has been around since 2005, with only a few upgrades. This large American sedan has brought a near-luxury feeling for many years, but it’s the last of a dying breed. The Chrysler 300 is gone and isn’t likely to return unless it comes back as an EV.

Dodge Challenger

The Dodge Challenger is another Stellantis car no longer available for the 2024 model year. This muscle car should return in an EV form, but nothing compares to the incredible V8 power and pure performance sounds of the now-deleted Challenger. At least this amazing car went out with a bang with the Challenger Demon 170, which dominates at the drag strip.

Dodge Charger

Along with the Chrysler 300 and Dodge Challenger, the Charger drives off to that glorious sunset in the sky. This family-sized sedan with the muscle car power and promise isn’t part of the 2024 model year lineup. The Charger will return as an EV, but it won’t arrive until at least 2025. The Charger has been a favorite car of many drivers. It’s good to know it will return, but it won’t ever be the gas-burning beauty that left us at the end of 2023.

Green 2023 Kia Stinger sports sedan

Kia Stinger

The short-lived Kia Stinger sports sedan barely caught on before the end of its time. The Stinger is one of the cars that didn’t make it to the 2024 model year, mostly because the new EV6 arrived as an electric performance vehicle. The Stinger was an impressive sports sedan with a spacious cabin, excellent equipment, and good looks. This wasn’t enough to allow it to continue beyond 2023.
