There's another car from Austin Powers that has a manufacturing plant in Northeast Ohio
Myers Motors NmG

That is the name. It reminds me of the . . .
Peel P50 (1962)
Top Gear!

or . . .

BMW Isetta (1955)

Here's another one for you:

Mercedes-Benz 190E Cosworth

BMW M1

Oh man. Cosworth M-B. Good man. M1s are always welcome!  8)

Here are a few pictures I took.

BMW M1 (1978)
BMW M1 Concept (2008)
To celebrate the M1s 30th anniversary.

BMW Z8 (1999)

BMW Concept 6 (2009)

BMW Vision EfficientDynamics (2009 i8 Concept)

I will be back with more BMW offerings in due time.  8)

Ah classic! Here's another one of my favorite cars

Toyota 2000GT

Here is another one with the bond of 2000.
Honda S2000
Johnny Tran anyone?

@BSL: I still think the original GT40 has better - simpler - lines. I don't like the over-complex design of the new version. Unneded.

I understand where you are coming from: somewhat of a purest, classic, simpler set of body stylization. Drop the points, archways, and angles. Leave the unadulterated bodylines, and we are good to go. However, I am under the impression that Ford's approach to reincarnating the GT into present day was well executed, at least in comparison to some other manufacturers. As I have said they maintained the prominent curves and body lines: The front bumper-to-hood body panel curve, the double hood inlets, the body line running from the front curve to the rear quarter panel inlets, the rear quarter panel inlets, so on and so forth. With the advancements in CAD, concept testing, machining, I believe the body changes, and the majority of all changes for the matter, have been for the better and are not un-necessary. I will setup some rehashings I think went well and not as much so.

Good

Dodge Challenger


Okay

Chevrolet Corvette Stingray


Not so Good

Dodge Charger


What the Hell!?

Acura NSX

Seriously, if you want to look at something the is complicated, and dare I say, un-necessary, look at the electronics and engine configuration of the new NSX. Ah mah gahd! What the Hell. It is just . . . wow!

Using this method of ranking them, I would go as far as to list the Ford's new rendition of the GT as an "Okay" to a "Good."

But seriously, Acura. What the heck.

Acura RDX

Acura MDX

Acura TLX

If you look at nothing else, at least look at the lights. I mean, five halogen lights in one fixture. What the hell. That is just superfluous, if I ever did see it. That gets me every time.
 
This does remind me of...
Ferrari 512 BB, 1976


Yeah, yeah.

If you're gonna post a Quattro, it has to either be in rally spec or in red with the word Quattro down the side.

Ha, ha, ha. All too true.

Ok, ok.

The British are fine car-makers, most definitely.

Aston Martin DB5, 1963

And the fact it's the most popular Bond car is just the topping on the cake.

Well, technological advancements (metal-shaping, CAD, electronics...) let us create something that was unachievable, unthinkable, only 50 years ago. It's most definitely true.
I do like the new version of that Ford, I'm not saying it's bad, and it's clear they stayed true to the original. But... It's just my feeling and my own taste. The old car tells me much more, even being much less in any aspect. Simple lines, less curves, no twists. Essential and elegant.
For instance, I prefer this remake of the same car.

Ford GT, 2005

Yup, yup. Fair enough. The 2005 version is pretty snazzy, and it is as you say: a solid remake. It is also as you say "It's just my feeling and my own taste." Of course, that is completely understandable. At this point, it is only but a matter of differing preferences. Good point, good point. I guess it is just a matter of me favoring contemporary design over classic that is getting the best of me here. Oh well.

Welp, I am going to end up besmirching your DB5 with Bond's newest ride. Even if it is the most popular bond car.

Aston Martin DB10

I am really not surprised, though. The DB5 oozed the very essence of Bond. The car is now more of just an accessory, and it's not so much an integral part of Bond anymore. I mean, it is there, but it just doesn't seem to be "there." Meaning in the sense of it having a meaningful presence.

Back then? Not on your life. British Leyland made the cars complete shit and the MG-Rover Group was a corrupt mess. Basically the cars were made cheaply and sold for far more than they were worth.
