Best Forgotten: The Story of the Pontiac Aztek
https://www.caranddriver.com/features/p ... en-feature

How the Pontiac Aztek happened is important—so it doesn't happen again.

Slika

Dear friends, we have arrived at a very dangerous moment in history. Please listen closely to what we have to say.

The Pontiac Aztek, that automotive punchline made by General Motors for five long and regrettable years in the early aughts, is on the verge of being considered cool. We blame its recurring role on AMC’s insanely good series Breaking Bad for getting this ugly ball rolling. Right now, 10 bloggers are spitting out stories about the ways in which the Aztek is now cool. Okay, not actually cool, but “cool” through the process of ironic reassessment. It’s the process by which sales of that low-budget swill Pabst Blue Ribbon increased by about 150 percent between 2005 and 2014.

As we pointed out in our “Guide to Automotive Bullsh!t” in July 2017, “If it’s mostly cool because it’s not cool, then it’s not really cool, is it?”

And make no mistake: The Aztek is not cool. It was and shall remain an irredeemable shit heap. It was the antithesis of cool from the start. Pontiac introduced the production Aztek at the 2000 Detroit auto show. For its press conference, the company hired locals to stand around in a mock mosh pit. Some wore rainbow wigs, some carried signs reading, “It’s The Versatility, Baby!” and “Aztek 185 hp”—you know, just what you’d see in a mosh pit. At the end of the presentation, the Aztek’s head marketing man, Don Butler, jumped into the pit and crowd surfed. This all actually happened in the real world. The Aztek, a blatant minivan-in-drag monstrosity, sat on stage looking like a sad, fat man who’d had his nose cut off. It’s so powerfully ugly that a blobfish wouldn’t be seen next to it. If you saw something that looked like the Aztek scurry out from behind your fridge, you might have difficulty deciding whether to kill it or kill yourself. After all, if you kill it, you’ll still have to live with the knowledge that it existed in the first place. If the infant Aztek were abandoned on a mountainside, it would eventually come crawling back to civilization because even the vultures and ants wouldn’t touch it.

The mosh pit at the Aztek's unveiling was every bit as wince-inducing as the shambolic Woodstock '99. Fewer Porta-Johns were lit on fire, though.

It wasn’t supposed to go that way, of course. According to designer Tom Peters, the idea bubbled up from GM’s West Coast Advanced Concept Center. The notion was to mix the attributes of a Camaro and a Blazer into a wide, low, powerful, off-roadish thing referred to as the Bear Claw. Think of it as a GMC Typhoon with off-road tires.

But the GM overlords determined that the thing should instead be based on the tall, narrow structure from the corporation’s minivans. Did this deviation, and the inherent compromises it represented, prevent GM from producing the thing? It did not.

The Bear Claw idea was to lash the practicality and off-road capability of an SUV to the performance and excitement of a sports sedan. Instead, the production Aztek, powered by the corporate 3.4-liter V-6 and with a decidedly on-road–focused optional all-wheel-drive system, combined the performance, excitement, and off-road capability of a minivan with the lesser practicality of a chopped minivan.

Bob Lutz, who took over the top product job at GM in the aftermath of the Aztek, has claimed that the design was presented to focus groups who felt about the thing the way we all felt about it when we first saw it: They hated it. Well, actually Lutz claimed that the market-research respondents said, “I wouldn’t take it as a gift.” So convinced were the powers that be of the essential rightness of the vehicle, though, that this didn’t kill the Aztek, either.

Instead, GM—stung by years of criticism that it was a stodgy old corporation that produced stodgy old designs— pushed ahead. This was an era in which the General produced a number of vehicles that were determined to be innovative, regardless of whether buyers were interested in such innovations. Remember the awkward GMC Envoy XUV with a power-retractable roof over the cargo area? That arrived only a few years after the Aztek, which itself was an idea of versatility rendered in plastic and corporate parts-bin pieces. One of the Aztek’s few claims to cleverness was a removable insulated drink cooler mounted between the seats. That feature was later copied by zero car companies.

So poorly was the Aztek’s styling received that General Motors announced it would restyle the thing after only five months on the market. That didn’t help, either. Pontiac finally took the Aztek behind the barn in 2005.

And behind the barn it should stay. It’s no more worthy of reassessment, ironic or otherwise, than is Limp Bizkit. It should live on only as a memory. And then only for use in cautionary tales.

The Buick Rendezvous Proves That Ugly Is Relative

Next to its Aztek platform-mate, Buick’s Rendezvous didn’t look all that horrible. A mildly less repellent exterior and Tiger Woods’s shilling helped the Buick crush the Pontiac in sales. It still sat on the hideous end of the design spectrum, but it survived until 2007, two years longer than the Aztek.

Imena i nadimci automobila: Samo ih ne prevodite!
http://mondo.rs/a1084202/Auto/Vesti/Cud ... dimci.html

Kako vam se čine "merak", "kuga", "salata", "starlet", a "rugobica", "pupak", "suza"?
Davanje imena automobilima je posao timova koji često muku muče kako bi smislili što atraktivniji i pamtljiviji naziv.

Mnoge kompanije daju svojim modelima tematska imena. Za Folksvagen se misli da je većinu svojih modela krstio po imenima vremenskih pojava. "Pasat", "široko" i "korado" jesu dobili imena po vetrovima, ali ne i "golf" i "polo", iako se mislio da iza tih naziva "stoje" Golfska struja i polarni vetrovi.

Par modela je dobilo nazive po grčkim bogovima (Eos i Feton), dok je "tuareg" nazvan po istoimenom saharskom nomadskom narodu, jer "ovaj SUV može svog vlasnika odvesti i u ta bespuća".

Jedan drugi član VW grupe, Lamborgini većini svojih modela dao je naziv po nečemu značajnom iz sveta borbe bikova – u skladu sa amblemom. Tako je "miura" dobila ime po vlasniku ranča blizu Sevilje koji je gajio bikove na borbe, a kojima je Feručo Lamborgini bio impresioniran. Po sličnom modelu su nazvani i modeli "halpa", "harama" i "galjardo".

Modeli "islero" i "reventon" su nazvani po istoimenim bikovima, koji su ubili čuvene matadore četrdesetih godina prošlog veka. A "Mursielago" je nazvan po biku koji je u koridi zadobio 24 uboda sabljom "espadom" (takođe naziv jednog Lamborginija) i na pritisak publike matador ga je poštedeo. Staranje o tom biku kasnije je preuzeo pomenuti Don Antonio Miura. A najnoviji "urus" je dobio ime po isčezlom predaku današnjeg govečeta.

Osim ovakvih naziva, mnoge kompanije nazivaju svoje nove modele skraćenicama – "audi TT", "honda NSX", "mazda MX-5", "sitroen 2CV" i mnogi drugi.
Znate li koje je značenje automobilskih skraćenica?

Možda najzanimljiviji deo ove priče su nazivi automobila, koji na nekim jezicima imaju čudno, smešno a ponekad i veoma pogrdno značenje.

"Lamborgini merak", "tojota carina" ili "ford kuga" imaju svakako drugačija značenje na našem jeziku. Posebno je upečatljiv naziv aktuelnog Fordovog SUV-a jer retko ko u celom slovenskom svetu pomisli na "pumu" (cougar, eng.), već na zloglasnu bolest.

Ovakvih primera ima u drugim jezima. Čuven je primer Micubišijevog "pajero" koji na španskom znači "dr*adžija". Tako se ovaj model na hispano tržištima prodavao pod imenom "montero" (planinski lovac).
"Ku*va" protiv "malog penisa"

Mazdin model "laputa" romanski svet podseća na "la putu" ili "putanu" što je pogrdan izraz za prostitutku. S druge strane, Fordov "pinto" u brazilskoj verziji portugalskog jezika znači "mali penis".

Još jedan model je imao "problem" u Južnoj Americi. Ševroletov "nova", u prevodu s latinskog znači "nov", ali u zemlja Amazona i Anda "no va" znači "ne ide".

Neki nazivi američkih modela nisu imali toliko problema sa prevodima, već nekako bili "bez veze" – "linkoln versaj" ili "pontiak parizien" (Parižanka). Dok je "ševrolet selebriti" bio najprodavaniji model 1986. godine u SAD, ali ovaj, ni po čemu poseban model, zasigurno nije bio popularan među "selebritijima".

Baš kao što verovatno nijedna starleta nije nikad vozila, ma ni sela u malu gradsku "tojotu starlet". Ili da li je neka "simpatična, ali ne baš pametna" devojka vozila model "bimbo" italijanskog proizvođača Volufrago?

S druge strane, čuveni kupe "nisan 370Z" u Japanu se prodaje kao "nisan ferlejdi Z", a to baš nije model za neku smernu damu, kako mu naziv kaže.

A šta tek reći na Micubišijeve pulene "letus" ("salata") i "mini aktiv urban sandal" (bolje da ne prevodimo), kao i "daihacu nejked" ("goli").
Rugobica, pupak, ajkula…

Što nadimaka tiče fokusiraćemo se na dva modela s najviše "lokalizama" u svetu.

"Folksvagen tip 1" je daleko poznatiji pod nadimkom "buba". Taj naziv ga prati širom sveta. Međutim, "buba" je poznata i kao "kornjača", "žaba", "buba švaba" ili "pupak". Među afričkim narodima koji pričaju svahili, najpoznatijeg VW-a zovu "leđa žabe" i "brzina kornjače". Kod nas je bio popularan i simpatični naziv "folcika".

Na ovim prostorima "sitroen 2CV" ima zvanični nadimak "spaček" ("rugobica" u prevodu sa slovenačkog). Ovaj legendarni model je u Holandiji "ružno pače", Nemačkoj "patka", Norveškoj "čelični krevet", a na engleskom govornom području ga zovu "limeni puž" i "kornjača". U Hispano svetu je "žaba", "koza" ili "dva konja", što je bukvalni prevod naziva.
