A very original and elegant general aircraft type that unfortunately didn't go past the prototype phase was the Avtek 400. There was an attempt a few years ago to revive the type as the Avtek 9000T for production, but nothing came of it, it seems.

The Avtek 400 still exists today, as evidenced by this link which shows it on a Google Earth photograph:
