The Studebaker Corporation did not want to be left out. It turned to designer Raymond Loewy, the brains behind the Coca-Cola bottle's legendary form, to save the American carmaker from bankruptcy. He developed the Studebaker Avanti luxury sport coupe. Volume production lasted only until 1964, with a total of 4,600 cars built. Two ex-Studebaker dealers bought the production tooling and space, and hand-built Avanti replicas through the 1990s - their own tribute to Raymond Loewy's timeless design.
