Numbers don't lie – the most popular concept was an MPV while a supercar was dead last.

As the year draws to a close, we figured it’s the right time to have a look back at our most popular articles from the weekly Concept We Forgot series. Without spoiling the results, let’s just say the top 10 is dominated by Mercedes with four entries, but none of them made it into the top 3. Despite today’s SUV-obsessed world, you won’t find any high-riding models, although one of them is a pickup truck that went on to become the first-generation Touareg.

We already have some interesting concepts lined up for next year, so watch this space beginning January 2 for more quirky cars that didn’t make it to the assembly line. In the meantime, click on the "Next" button above for the top 10 forgotten concepts we published over the course of 2018.
