Poor Mercedes CL600. Despite being one of the company's finest rides since Gottlieb Daimler kickstarted his first wooden motorcycle, sales of the six-figure coupe dropped 53% this year, making it worthy of Forbes's annual list of automotive Turkeys. Sure, Merc is scaling back production prior to a replacement, but self-immolation is no excuse in the eyes of Dan Lienert, who adopts his annual super-snark tone that brings a tear of joy to our eyes. Saying of Ford's Mercury Monterey minivan and Mazda B-Series truck, "Unloved, pathetically low-selling copies of Ford vehicles, these two cars have virtually no reason for existing." More! More!
