One of the most unique ’80s cars was the Nissan Pulsar and its NX Sportbak package. The idea behind this car was to combine a regular two-door coupe with the wagon body style, but not in the “Shooting Brake” kind of way. Nissan decided to make a normal coupe but add body extensions, which transformed the Pulsar into a wagon.
When Nissan presented it in 1986, the Pulsar Sportbak received some positive attention from car consumers. But eventually, people turned to the more conventional coupe styling. Soon, the wagon canopy addition was less desirable and popular. They discontinued the Sportbak model in 1990. It still remains one of the strangest production cars they ever made.
