    I don't think those words mean what they think they do.

    1.3 liters can be enough for a car, if it's the right car. I had a 1995 Ford Aspire like this



    With a 5-speed manual gearbox, it was kind of fun to drive.

    pretty sure there is already a car that looks like that. though i know it's not a porsche. for what it's worth, the boxster is pretty lame, and the panamera is ugly as sin. so porsche isn't invincible.

    There were those rumors, yes.

    When they were filming The Longest Yard near Savannah it was rumored he was a regular at the now defunct Who's Who.

    The article says it was, the full album also shows something in modeling clay. But no, I don't think this one could actually exist. I don't think it's really bad looking, but it isn't exactly beautiful either.

    It's cute. The two cars actually go together better than you might expect. Jalopnik seems to regard it as a hoax.



    For me, the ugly highlights on the door scream bad Photoshop.

    The Scion Xb looks like what I used to draw a car like when I was a small child.

    When I was a wee boy, we drew our cars to resemble this. A '62 Impala.

    Kid style car.gif

    They kind of resembled a Chevrolet logo, except without the block on the bottom.

    A contact on the Benz forums loves the hell out of his late 2cv6. Those have quite a following it seems.

    Okay well if your going to say boxes with wheels are ugly, then you need to add a few, Kia Soul, Nissan Cube, Honda Element and one the the 80's the Ford Bronco II. I'd put pics in, but they all look similar to the pic by Yo Spiff.
