    1. 458 Italia
    2. Honda Clarity
    3. I don't off road.
    4. 458 italia
    5. Honda Clarity

    So basically I'm driving the 458 any time I don't need more than 2 seats.

    here's my list, but it doesnt follow any of your criteria, just cars part on my list for next car I plan to buy:

    1. 2014 Audi S4
    2. 2014 BMW 435i
    3. 2014 Subaru WRX
    4. 2015 Ford Mustang
    5. 2014 C7 Z06

    I've been dead set on the S4 for months since I live in the Northeast and its the most practical for me. But now I'm beginning to reconsider and may either get the WRX if it ends up having a nice interior in the redesign, or just go for one of the RWD sports cars and forget practicality.
    Really, really hope the new Mustang doesnt have a horrific interior like the current car.

    2: Maserati Quattroporte
    3: A Range Rover. Obviously!
    4: Ferrari 550
    6: Nissan Leaf

    i have no idea, but if i had to guess it'd be second half of the year. so around august/september.

    first it has to be announced and i'm not sure when that'll be at all, but since theyre calling it a 2014 WRX, that means release sometime in 2013.

    Well, I need one local windsurfing vehicle that carries 7 windsurf boards, 14 sails, 7 masts, 6 booms, and S/O in the front seat in comfort.
    Then one travel windsurf car that carries 3 boards, two folks, 4 masts, 4 booms, and 7 sails. With good mileage, as travel can often be over 60 miles.
    One snow car with 4wd.
    One cruiser for backroads and two bicycles.
    So my 9mpg Van takes care of all the needs.

    FordGT, 1966 mid engined model, was my dream car.
    Too bad it flew at 180mph, literally.

    oh, and maybe a Landrover 110 Defender for days when it is REALLY raining/snowing)

    (I know, that's technically six, but the Landy is made of Aluminium so it could probably sit on the street 'til doomsday and still run, so...)

    ^^That's not fair! I thought we were choosing factory cars.

    In that case I'll take one of UGR's ungodly creations. Either their TT Aventador or TT 458.

    lol, yes, I've seen the Atom many times, but that's only a CBR600RR on a very tight track that heavily favours a car.

    that bike weighs about 180 kg and puts out about 110 hp

    the Aprilia, for example, weighs about the same and puts out 180 hp, has better brakes and modern traction control, MUCH faster than the little Honda.

    Hey, I drive a Golf/GTI 6 speed 5 days a week...
    Not so great for a city car. Seats are hard to move, doors heavy, tires are extremely bumpy and rims scratch on curbs. Tranny is not the smoothest, doesn't always know where to go (compared to Honda's), and seat is slipperey without adaquate wrap around.
    Oh, seatbelts are BEHIND you, and the wipers always have the last word.
