2017 has already passed and we have prepared ourselves with all the enthusiasm to welcome 2018.

In Tzedakah House we tell you. Learn about the cars that have been discontinued in the past year.
Ranking of cars that were discontinued during the past year
Undoubtedly one of the most attractive cars that returned to the market a few years ago the Volkswagen. However, the brand launched this model for the first time back in 1974 . This model, which in its day revolutionized the motor sector with its avant-garde aesthetics, would leave the market for the first time in 1992 . However, lovers of the brand did not forget this model and Volkswagen brought it to light again in 2008 . It would once again become the sporty alternative to Golf. Although it got off to a good start with more than 45,000 units sold in 2009 alone, the numbers gradually began to decline. To the point that in 2016 only 10,752 units were registered. Which has once again led Volkswagen to stop making the Scirocco. Decision that was launched during 2017 .
All Mini coupe SUV lovers are in mourning since the Paceman model was abandoned by the brand last year. As reported by the BMW Group to the media, the Paceman stopped being manufactured in 2017 and will not be replaced by a new model.
The Paceman was born with a clear objective : to offer a somewhat larger format so that the Mini brand could satisfy the needs of all types of customers. However, its somewhat reduced space and minimal trunk capacity could not overshadow the model on which it was based, the Contryman. With more space for the passengers and a larger boot. The Paceman has therefore died in the shadow of its predecessor, which is one of the brand's most successful cars.
Subaru WRX STI
This striking sports car from the great Japanese brand Subaru will be discontinued entirely in Europe in mid-2018 . This is undoubtedly Subaru's most legendary sports car that will be saying goodbye this year and doing it forever. Without a doubt, a goodbye that will not leave fans of road rally cars indifferent.
Along with the farewell to the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution of a couple of years ago this is undoubtedly tough news for many.
Ferrari also says goodbye to one of its most iconic models. We are talking about the Ferrari California. Despite the fact that in the latest version of the model, the California T, the Italian brand had managed to unite in the same vehicle the sporting spirit with 560 HP and a V8 twin-turbo engine. But he doesn't say goodbye empty-handed. The California T goes through the big door and gives its space to the Ferrari Portofino that will go on sale for $ 200,000
