+1 for the 911 and even the Boss 302. Would love to get one on the track in addition to a snaked GT500 Bleh...on all the rest including the CTS-V...the designer should be flogged.

Have you drove one? I'd like to see it, X6, and Porsche Cayenne Turbo line up. I rode in one and it's very fast. Tahoe's are 60k new now.

The new Regal is actually decent. Jeep, no. TT-RS GTR and 911 yes. Challenger no

the one big problem he told me it has is the turn ratio is absolutely terrible (and I've seen it first hand)
parallel parking is much more difficult than it should be for such a small car because the rims the Abarth has are too big for it or something.. I forget.
it is a nice little car and gets lots of attention with a nice kick.

I would say they dropped the ball by omitting the CTS-V wagon. Only 500 being made. Quirky car today means collectible in the future. See BMW E36/8 M Coupe. Sold like shit and now everyone wants one.

The doubters should take a look at the prices for Grand Nationals and GNXs.

Interesting list but nothing I feel I HAVE to own. Take a 993 Turbo over that 911 and miss my NSX more than the desire for a GTR.

I'd agree with that. I actually prefer the look of the CTS-V wagon to the coupe. To me, the wagon looks more aggressive and not nearly as bloated as the coupe.

I will drive them all! I love any type of vehicle! The Regal over here is like some type of Opel. It looks great and they are quite a bit faster over here. I saw a ZL1 testing on the ring over here and got to follow behind him. He had an american plate. Was an awesome car. My buddy had the Cherokee SRT8 over here and I think he spent more on gas a year than on the car payment.

But the sedan is the fastest production sedan ever, adds to the value 30 years from now.

The Seville STS was the most powerful FWD car ever built. You can buy them for $3k now. Scarcity adds to value and the sedans are all over the place. Wagon is quite rare. I was thinking of picking one up when my 1er lease is up but I think it's a bit of a waste to make my 7mi solo commute in a supercharged V8 wagon.

The 911, GT R and Boss LS will make my short list for the F's replacement with even the ZL1 getting a look as it could hold it's value nicely (and my buddy owns a dealership and could get me one cheap ). Throw in the M5 and I'd almost go as far as saying my next car will come from this list.
