There's no death certificate yet on these vehicles, but let's just say they're probably not planning much beyond 2014.
Mercedes is promising six new models based on the 2014 S-Class. Who's betting the CL goes away in favor of an S-Class Coupe?
Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution
Mitsubishi's already said the Evo will die; at this point, it's up to them to pull the plug.

It's overdue for a replacement, and the xD doesn't do much more than the also slow-selling iQ.
Subaru says it's interested in building a better seven-seat crossover; a roomier Tribeca replacement will probably benefit from some Toyota partnership.
Toyota FJ Cruiser and Toyota 4Runner
They're "new" for 2014, but the very slight modifications on these truck-based utes seems dim.
With the Vibe gone to pasture, will the slow-selling Matrix be far behind?
