Car Porn.

Considering people appear to be derailing the new tech thread with car imagery, I decided it would be more appropriate to have their own thread.

To begin with, I'll post some of my all time favourite machines.

I removed my posts from the other topic. Sorry for derailing - I'll be more careful the next time.

I definitely prefer the classics. Don't like much the 1970s and the 1980s - too many edges. I do like, however, sport cars from the 1990s (I'd say mainly the Japanese models). As from contemporary, I like Audi - followed a bit their successes at Le Mans, and I do like their design - but I can't say there's something I'm particularly into.

Now, the pics.

Mercedes 300SL, 1954


Jaguar E-Type, 1961


Ferrari 250 GTO, 1962


Ford GT40, 1964


Lamborghini Miura, 1966


Lancia Stratos, 1973


Chevrolet Corvette, 1984


Toyota AE86, 1986


Nissan Skyline R34, 1999


Volkswagen W12, 2001


Audi R18, 2011


Plymouth Superbird, 1970


Ferrari Testarossa, 1988


McLaren F1, 1992


Dodge Viper, 2002


Audi R8, 2006 (?)


I'll add a few more, 'cause why not, after all?

Alfa Giulia GTA, 1965


Ferrari 330 P4, 1967

That Superbird is actually a Roadrunner. The logo on the wing gives it away.

I LOVE Alfa Romeo. My dad had an Alfa Romeo Sprint 1.7 Quadrifoglio Verde.

Like this one

It's a typical late 80's car with a lot of edges (not as edgy as a Volvo or a Mercedes-Benz), but I loved that car when I was a kid.
Unfortunately, my dad sold it when I was a teenager, so I never drove it.



That Ferrari 330 P4 you posted is very interesting and quite hard to manufacture since it requires a lot of metal bending.
(Such extreme deformations make the metal sheets very thin in some points and create a lot of weak spots in the body panels, which would be unacceptable by today's safety standards.)

I didn't absolutely know about that Alfa. It certainly looks interesting - it reminded me of another one of my favourites.
Lancia Delta HF Integrale, 1989


That Ferrari is - I believe - their last stand in the endurance scene. It's mostly famous for the win at the 24h of Daytona in 1967. It was certainly extreme, and certainly not mass produced (4 models in total? Or something like that).

Ah, the Delta Integrale... One of the best rally cars ever built. Worth a lot of money these days, last I heard they were going for 20k plus.

Oh indeed. The Mini Cooper was an amazing little machine. Here's a little known fact for you, Sir Stirling Moss's sister won a number of rallys in a Mini Cooper.

Thank you!

I was going to get around to making a thread for everything car related, but I chose to start with science and technology. Nice to see the reins being pickup, so the science and technology thread can be about what it is suppose to be about.

Again, thanks!

Let get this goin' where the rubber meets the road . . . The Treads!  8)

As an aside, I noticed the classics are quite the favorite. Don't get me wrong, the Mercedes Benz 300SLR is a beaut, but come on. Show the modern automotive engineers some lovin', too. Or not. Truly, whatever fits your pre-fer-anananance. Anyway, I shall be back to dominate the automotive realm in due time.

And, I am back.

U WANT GOOD LOOKING CARS?

... I derailed the topic, didn't I?

Somewhat, but cars are always welcome. Feel free to add more. I see you favor more of the classics. I'll counter you with the other side of the spectrum: contemporary.

Lamborghini Veneno

McLaren P1

Acura NSX
Yes, it is back!

Mm, the W12. I forgot about that bad boy. Nice, nice, nice.
