    Buying a CARTOON Snake Car? No CHOICE!

    I saw a guy driving a something the other day. It made me laugh. Like we're not MEN; we're boys playing in an amusement park with _cartoon_ character bumper cars.

    Just look at what designers are producing! Even Ferrari is getting into the "lowest-common-denomenator" styling trend.

    I don't want to drive around in an aggressive reptile cartoon snake-faced car!

    Hate to tell you this , but we Turbo owners already drive a REAL cartoon car . I have the entire " Chevron Car " collection , same as the models in their TV gasoline commercials going back 10 years , including this one from about 5 years ago : "Tony Turbo" .

    LOL. I _KNOW_ I can't stand it! I'm gonna "rip out" my grille when I get a chance to _maybe_ reduce the look a bit. Looked into a wingectomy but it won't work.

    I'm just sayin' whatever happened to "understated elegance?"


    Re: Buying a CARTOON Snake Car? No CHOICE!

    it's true though.. the new M3 looks like some shark or something.. very disappointing in real life. When i look at cars and see some kind of animal, it loses a lot of appeal and makes it slide right into the cartoon car category..

    It went out the window when maufacturers, including Porsche ,started putting " street racer " stripes ,decals and or wings on cars in the '60s and '70s. When you see a " ricermobile " , it's grandpa is a 1970's Porsche . The current GT3RS certainly carries that torch .

    Geez Atz, it's awful ain't it?! Damn M3! I'm gonna need a new one soon; wtf am I gonna do? Beautiful gazelles and jaguars were a great inspiration for a while, now it's all nasty reptiles and even alien insects.

    Reminds me of a movie where a truck has a big head on the front of it, it took me a while to remember the name

    MAXIMUM OVERDRIVE!

    Imagine that being lit up green with red eyes at night coming up fast behind you!

    You'd think it was the devil!

    Re: Buying a CARTOON Snake Car? No CHOICE!

    One can always argue by showing exaggerated views... most shots above were taken with ultra-wide angle lenses, up close, for the effect they wanted... anyway!

    Re: Buying a CARTOON Snake Car? No CHOICE!

    How about this? As long as drag coefficients stay low, why can't serious performance sports cars turn into theme cars? "Normal" cars too. Why can't highway driving be more like a masquerade party?!

    Re: Buying a CARTOON Snake Car? No CHOICE!

    19s and 20s might not be enough. Since some collective eediiots decided bigger wheels are better, then more wheels are vastly superior! How about this? It's Bling Factor to the second power. If Porsche or GM would make this front wheel drive just think of the _drifting_ potential!

    HAHA! Would be fun to have cops stop you for "wreckless driving" even though you were driving nice.

    here's the pic:

    Okay..., this is ___IT___.

    If I ever were to see this cartoon miscarriage on the road I would be trading in everything I have for a powder blue, 150hp, Buick four door sedan.

    BTW, astonishingly, the "typical" wide angle distorted frontal view is probably intended to make the cars look _appealing_.
