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 ###### lineup is Porsche

 

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

I've driven 3 different ones on numerous occasions, I can think of much nicer cars to drive (in terms of driving not omg look at me I'm awesome in my over-priced asshat mobile).

You have to be ###### me on this one. "Best Full-Size Sedan: 2013 Toyota Avalon" 

 

There are plenty of cars better then the Avalon.

 

The Chevy SS, Chrysler 300, Cady XTS, BMW 7 Series.

 

​But hey you cant appease everybody.

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".

Tchnically, the Ferrari isn't a hatchback, and why isn't there any mention of a Skyline? :angry:

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

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.
