    I have to say the BMW 5 Series is pretty Overrated because the Quality is bad (we had one it fell appart after 2years) it isn`t that comfortable and it´s everything else than sporty also there is no space in the back. After that we bought a Skoda Octavia RS TDi with the same horsepower and better Quality for less money!

    Simple. Prius is one of the single most environmentally damaging cars to make. Its on the road fuel efficiency for a hybrid is terrible with some non hybrid vehicles actually matching or exceeding it.

    All in all. Its an eco car that is harmful.

    The battery barely lasts 5 years before requiring costly replacement.

    It is fuck ugly. Absolutely revolting to look at.

    It is expensive.

    Terrible vehicle. 0 stars out of 5.

    Remember when the prius was Indistinguishably normal...

    Neither do I, since i've never seen one...or have I, it's hard to tell with a car that blends in so well.

    @Feuerstern 16

    I'd have to agree, but only on any ferrari/lamborghini made after the 360 and the Gallardo it just kind of goes downhill from there.

    Yeah, I don't like those screaming V10s either. They make me nervous.

    I like these way more:

    1. 1960-70s muscles. People always forget that they can ride only on straight roads...
    2. Bugatti. As for me, it looks like an ugly bubble and loses to aesthetic Koenigseggs, SSCs and McLarens.
    3. BMW E46. don`t kill me

    I hate muscle cars and (most) of the culture surrounding them.

    It seems they think imports are incapable of other things than drifting, and that they can't handle corners for shit.

    I don't remember seeing any Dodge Challenger in the WTCC

    I think you shouldn`t use Nissan for drag :p. Also modern muscles (Camaro, Shelby) are much better, they are usable even in Formula Drift.
    Also i forgot to say about Porsche Cayenne in my list, that`s a very useless suv.

    All supercars. People think it's awesome to own a lamborghini or ferrari, etc. but they forget one thing: you can't do shit with them.

    So you've got a car that does 300MPH and has incredible suspension and speed. You can't really use it to its limits on the road, and if you push it that far on a track it'll catch on fire and/or kill you. And you can't put anything other than two people in them either since they're incredibly impractical, and don't forget you can't really drive them much because as the mileage goes up, the resale value goes down massively, and they only get 5 MPG.
    You can't really modify them either because you'll probably end up fucking them up, these are extremely complicated cars.
    And don't forget that driving these cars isn't as fun as it seems. The initial feeling of speed might be great, but as you drive it more you realize that the steering is completely numb and the car has 10 thousand types of electronic nannies that limit your driving.

    TL;DR: supercars are more focused on the people looking at the car, than the people driving the car. If you want a fun car, buy a lightweight sports car that actually gives you some feedback.

    The only thing that I don't like about it is that it looks extremely weird. It does what it's supposed to do, and look at the first-gen version:

    That one's nice.

    I know. XD they are ugly but we had one for 13 years. The one with the lump. They are spacious and comfortable. Never thought i would praise a multipla xD.

    But with a Delorean however, you get one advantage, you can open the doors while driving due to gullwing doors, now of course the delorean is slow in terms of 0.60, but it can most likely do 120, even though the speedo only goes to 85 MPH

    Uh oh. You triggered me.
    For a second can you guys (boys?) forget the "HUR DUR DUR GOTTA TAKE IT TO THE "NURBURGRING" bullshit?
    Both riding in and driving old American cars is an experience unmatched by anything else, and I'm sure neither of you have ever done it.
    Also, don't you think comparing a Japanese Super car designed in the 2000s to an American Muscle car designed in the early 1970s is a little bit unfair?
    Hell, I'm glad muscle cars can't stop or take corners. Trying not to die after you air it out really adds to the experience.
    Anyway, the point of all of this is that you need to drive an old american car before you start hating on them because they don't make sense on paper.

    I only take issue because their point isn't backed by any evidence.
    If they drive a muscle car and hate it, all power to them, but when they sit behind a computer screen, probably not having ever driven a car at all, and hate on American cars, I take issue.

    Oh really? Have you even actually driven one? What about worked on one?
    I have done all of this. Heck I even owned a couple. All of yall with your jap crap is far overrated. You really have to compare cars from the same era. All you people only want to go fast. Most of us that drive 60's-70's muscle want to cruise. and second of all my best track day car is both my 68 Dart and my 62 Corvair.

    The delorean isn't really a supercar though. It's slow and rear engined, that's a beetle, not a supercar. Still a cool car though, despite the awful technology.

    I like the idea the prius was supposed to be, a hybrid. And seeing that the prius was one of the most sold cars that Toyota has shows that it was a good idea. But what makes car guys "hate" the prius is how Toyota (imo) didn't try to make an attractive car, that people who are into cars like. But Toyota isn't alone in this. The 2006 Insight Hybrid from Honda is also not a very attractive car. But offcoarse this is all in my oppinion. Though the Tesla Model S isn't a hybrid, that the car I would like because it is attractive, and has a lot of modern tech. And also...
