What's The Most Prostituted Car Platform Ever?

Illustration for article titled Whats The Most Prostituted Car Platform Ever?

You ever tried running a global car company? Shit's expensive, man. There's no way you can build every car on its own dedicated platform if you expect to have a diverse lineup. It costs way too much to do that. This is why platform sharing exists.


But some platforms get spread around way too much, and in some cases, last decades longer than they probably should. Then again, if it ain't broke, don't fix it, right?

That's our question for the day: What's the most prostituted car platform ever?

I nominate the venerable GM B-Body platform. It was invented by several prominent Old Testament figures and lasted all the way into the late 1990s, spawning approximately four million different car models along the way, if my math is correct. (Okay, I'm exaggerating. It was closer to three million.)


Your turn. What's the most overused platform ever?
