Cars you can't get in the US. These are some of the coolest cars that never got a US release. They've got speed, power, and style, but can't get too a US audience. They weren't necessarily banned, of course. Most often, the companies just decided it wasn't economically feasible to bring them stateside. Americans love their cars, and this is a list of the ones we'll have to learn to live without.

These makes and models never made it to the USA for different reasons. Alfa Romeo's Brera sports car was produced for five years in Italy but never imported to the US. (Americans may get another chance, though, as the line may be continued in 2015.) The company's Spider is based on the Brera coupe. The Ford Ka, on the other hand, remains an extremely popular model throughout Europe and South America. (It is the top-selling car in its class in the United Kingdom.) In 2010, Ford confirmed that this version of the Ka would never be made available in the US, but it is expected that the company may expand the Ka brand name to North America in 2014 or 2015. India's Tato Nano, meanwhile, earned the distinction as the "world's cheapest car" upon its 2009 debut. (A new '09 Nano ran you about $2,000.) It has since received a lukewarm reception in its native land, where many motorists prefer to stick with even less expensive motorcycles, making export to Europe or North America increasingly unlikely.
