* A few pavilions for Epcot's Future World were proposed, but ultimately became other concepts. One was the Movie Pavilion, which the board liked so much, that it became a dedicated theme park, opening in 1989 as Disney-MGM Studios. The other was the Space Pavilion, which eventually saw the light of day in 2003 as Mission: SPACE.

* In 2010, Jaguar showed the C-X75 concept, a turbine-engined hypercar. A year later, the turbine engine concept was shelved, due to too high CO2 emissions, and replaced with a hybrid 1.6 powertrain, making 888 HP. Unfortunately, that was also cancelled, because of a lack of a big inough target market.


Added DiffLines:

* In 2008, a start-up called Carbon Motors showed the E7, a prototypical purpose-built police car, powered by a more durable BMW straight-6 diesel and with special safety capabilities. The original production date target was 2012, but the car was first delayed, and then the company went bankrupt in 2013.
* In 1949, 6 working prototypes of the Taylor Aerocar, a flying car, were built. However, due to financial problems and a lack of a big enough target market, the car wasn't ultimately produced.

* In the ''{{Discworld}}'', Creator/AAPessimal has taken the sort of threads and hints Terry Pratchett left in his novels and expanded on them; one-shot or one-line cameo characters get whole stories, for instance. It has been noted that a handful of hints, random pointers and one-line jokes in the early Discworld books, that suggested an Australia-like place existed there, eventually blossomed into fruition as [[Literature/TheLastContinent a whole novel]]. Pessimal noted the books have just as many hints, one-liners and pointers to the existence of a South Africa-like place on the Disc. Indeed, on his death, Pratchett had an outline novel sketched out that would have explored the Discworld "Africa" in at least as much detail as he gave to Australia. Discworld's "South Africa" is realised more fully in Pessimal's world. Indeed, the whole of the "African" continent is visited by travellers in the tale ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12321109/1/Gap-Year-Adventures Gap Year Adventures]]'' - a fair stab at the ground Terry P might have covered in the never-now-to-be-written ''The Dark Incontinent''.

** [[http://www.slashfilm.com/universal-video-game-theme-park/ Supposedly]], one of the ideas tossed around for the third park was a park dedicated almost entirely to video game franchises. It would've included rides based off an immeasurable number of franchises, from classic arcade games such as ''VideoGame/PacMan'' and ''VideoGame/GoldenAxe'', to modern franchises such as ''VideoGame/{{Minecraft}}'', ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'' and ''VideoGame/MetalGear'', among others, and would've also been used for Creator/{{Nintendo}} franchise that wouldn't have been used for ''Super Nintendo World'' in Universal Studios Florida due to lack of space and/or budget. Given that the demands would've almost certainly included technology that hadn't yet existed for theme parks (something Universal was already investing for ''Super Nintendo World'') and would garner a huge bill for merely licensing the properties, it's no surprise that this idea never went forward.

* ''Super Creator/{{Nintendo}} World'' was originally going to be built in the space used for the Universal Cool Japan events, rather than the parking lot next to Japan's version of ''The Wizarding World of Harry Potter'' (which was also built on a former parking space).
