That's the thing with these lists, no one is ever content. I am personally okay with no Audi's on the list - they are pretty meh. The only brand worth while in the entire VAG lineup is Porsche

 

Best convertible - Bentley Continental GTC. Tsk tsk bad choice. I can think of much better convertibles you can buy

With the sky high gas prices, the best cars are the Prius and the Tesla electric car! This should be called "The most and least practical cars money can buy".

Automobiles are overrated. You can go anywhere on a bicycle as long as you eat, drink and have leg power!  ;)

How do miles per taco compare to miles per galon?

Driven never, have been in a few recently though. I just can't get over that hideous exterior. Convertibles are meant to be FUN, fast/sporty. The Continental tries to be sporty, but it is just a giant tank. 

 

If I had to get a convertible, sign me up for any of the following: BMW Z4, M3, M6. Mercedes SLK, SL, SLS, SLR. Jaguar F type. Porsche 911 Cabriolet. I'd have any of those and even other convertibles I don't care for (new Porsche Boxster, Miata) well before anything Bentley.

Why bother with the Prius? The Tesla is great - I can't wait for more affordable models. Bikes are great, but can't go on long road trips/haul anything. They aren't practical where I live, and public transportation sucks, so you need a car. I consider biking an exercise/activity rather than a form of transportation.

No Cadillac ATS?

 

I want a Tesla, but for the gas "saving" I'd be pocketing, would go to the car payment of the Tesla.

You could probably do 30 miles on a bike on 1 or 2 tacos that are 2.00 each. You could go further if you have the endurance. I don't think tacos are right thing to eat to bike ride though lol

If money was take out of the equasion, I'd have the electric SLS over the tesla, even though it's terrible on energy consumption, but then all top end mercs are :p

The electric SLS is amazing and fast. :woot:  I'm excited for the new brew of hypercars that are powered by both gas/electric powertrains.

I have dealt with cars, the best ones I have ever owned are

205 GTI (very fast, brilliant handling, but small boot but very reliable)

Mondeo TDDI (Amazing on fuel, good size boot and space in the back, but broke a fair bit)

Classic Mini (Fantastic car in the summer small but used loads of fuel but was amazingly fun)

Vitara JXE 1996 16v 1.6 (Big boot, cheap on fuel, goes anyplace, built like a tank no downsides.)

 

Get a cheap 4x4 they are reliable and hard to brake also they have loads of space :P

A few vehicles on the list are surprising.

 

Corvette as the best sports car?  I'd give it to the Nissan GT-R or maybe the Ferrari 599.

Dodge Ram as the best large pickup?  No way in hell.  Ford SVT Raptor over it any day.

 

Everything else is pretty reasonable.

Electric cars are garbage except for saving the environment. They take forever to charge. And when new technology comes along to change that, there's still the fact that the more and faster you charge a battery, the more you decrease longevity. It's a nice idea but it's failing miserably. That said, the Tesla S is a pretty slick looking ride. I don't know if I'd agree with this list either.
