This is The Opposite Locker where we try and sort out the cool from the square. You are free to discuss your point of view of the cars, on the board and up to bat, within the comments with an optional use of the "Anna Kendrick Test." This is a discussion system detailing how cool a car is, not how fast, fun, or frivolous it may be, but how well it looks in the cat's pajamas.

Try a different web browser if the polls do not show. Asterisked* cars are moved more than slightly from the original vote by use of veto power, and double asterisked** cars are vehicles moved back under a challenge. If you are confused about whats going on, click here.

Frigid (10)

  • Chrysler 300*
  • Dodge Challenger
  • Toyota GT 86
  • Porsche Cayman
  • McLaren ฯ€
  • Porsche 918
  • Maserati GranTurismo - The silent killer; when I eventually buy my GranTurismo, I shall name thee: Dexter. While Ferrari struggle to maximize performance against their Formula 1 rivals who also happen to make production cars, Maserati are left to pick out of a parts bin fit for the gods. They take the chassis, motor, gearbox, and whatever else Ferrari will let them, and then Maserati spend the rest of their time making the GranTurismo look completely badass. This car looks best in black. Frigid.

Cool (9-7)

  • Ford Focus
  • Chevrolet Corvette (C7)
  • Mazda MX-5 Miata
  • Ford Mustang
  • Porsche 911
  • Tesla Model S
  • Maserati Quattroporte - You could buy an S class, or a 7 series, or a Porsche Panamera, but you heard that Ferrari V8 and decided that driving pleasure and eargasms were your thing. Good Choice. Anna Kendrick is being picked up in Land Rovers and Mercedes E classes that do everything else that the next car does, but the evil twin of the Quattroporte will keep you awake without sacrificing the car's civility. Cool.

Uncool (6-3)

  • Nissan GT-R
  • Chevrolet Camaro
  • Porsche Boxster*
  • Porsche Cayenne
  • Ferrari 458 Italia
  • Lamborghini Gallardo
  • Ferrari LaFerrari
  • Nissan 370Z
  • Chevrolet Volt
  • Maserati Ghibli* - Of the pictures we have to go off of thus far, the Ghibli looks just like a smaller Quattroporte that isn't nearly as frightening. Engine options are 'whatever', unless you get the V8. This car doesn't say, "hitman" to me, it just says, "I'm a corporate executive who was convinced to buy this by a salesman." Uncool.

New Kid on the Block

The BMW 3 Series is the standard for luxury midsize sedan; other than that, the 3 series doesn't poke any significance into my petrolhead mind. Does this mean it's boring? Does this mean it's the best of the best? Most Importantly, Does this mean it's cool?
