That’s clearly the Boxster for me chief


Z3, can’t help it I’m a bimmer boi :smile:


Boxster tbh, other two just look like they’re… pretty awkward.


The boxster’s lights are awkward, there’s a reason it’s not like that before or after.


It’s easy to say that plenty of 90s styling is awkward.


The SLK gets knocked down some pegs because it’s aged atrociously, whenever I see one irl my first thought is 90’s shitbox and then it registers, oh that’s a Mercedes


Obvious choice: Only one of those is any good to actually drive.


Easily the 986 - it was the best to drive out of the three, and sold well enough to save Porsche from financial collapse. And the economies of scale brought on by this new platform allowed them to ramp up production of the water-cooled 996 when it arrived the following year.



Pretty sure that Lotus tuning of the car is the only British thing about it, the rest of the car is German as well.

Tricky one, but I’m going with the Volvo.


Gotta be the Viggen. Love a Saab and/or Scania.


Very tricky, but Saab Viggen is cooler

Passat because this exist:


I was assuming base models, otherwise I agree.


I was targeting standard models like 2.0tdi passat


Accord has relatively the cheapest parts price between the three.


I’d take the Accord except for us it was an Acura TSX

Also, I would commit heinous acts for a 6-speed equipped TSX Sportwagon


Little known fact: That generation of the Mazda 6 has the option of a 3.7L Ford Cyclone V6. DOHC, 24 valve, 275 horsepower and I think 272 lb-ft of torque, and a 6-speed automatic. I’d rock the hell out of that.
