13 Highly Rated Cars Do You Like Our List
Car ownership is a mixture of objectivity, subjectivity, and both.
One vehicle may serve one owner well, while another car can cause problems for another driver.
We will be focusing on the objective aspect of car ownership and highlighting cars that aren't up to their potential.
While some of our picks might be obvious, others may surprise you. Take a look at our list to find out if you agree or disagree with our selections.
Let's get started.
What makes the Nissan GT-R so overrated?
Over the past decade, Nissan has not been able to improve the original GT-R. The GT-R has remained virtually unchanged since its launch, with newer models selling at half the original price. These markups don't make sense given the GT-R's heavier weight, which makes it less agile than other vehicles.
The GT-R was a popular model that quickly gained attention after its release. The 3.8-liter twin-turbo V6 engine was immediately attractive to early Nissan GT-R drivers. This engine produced a powerful 480 horsepower and was complemented by an extremely quick dual-clutch transmission and all-wheel-drive capability. These performance elements could be purchased for less than the Porsche 911 by original Nissan GT-R owners.
After Nissan has made some design changes and price adjustments to their GT-R, we'll be happy for them to reconsider our GT-R vision.
What is Ferrari's LaFerrari lacking?
You may be asking yourself how can we overrate a Ferrari with 789 horsepower. Our argument is based on the fact that horsepower accounts for the majority of the Ferrari LaFerrari's capabilities. The world of high-value sports cars doesn't have to be limited by large amounts of horsepower. The LaFerrari is not able to compete with the technological advancements of rival sports models such as the McLaren P1.
McLaren's P1 model gives drivers an exciting race mode that creates thrills. Porsche's 918 Spyder stands out thanks to its multi-faceted gas-electric hybrid system. Critics believe that LaFerrari's inability to transition to full-electric mode is a sign that the car hasn't reached its potential.
What Can the Bugatti Veyron Do Better?
Bugatti Veyron's unfocused approach earns it a place on our list for the most underrated cars. The Veyron's amazing speed is unquestionable. The original Bugatti Veyron featured an 8-liter W-16 engine and four turbos that produced close to 1000 horsepower. Special editions of the Bugatti Véyron offered a staggering 1200 horsepower to drivers who chose them. The Veyron's heavy design, poor handling, and impressive speed are what overshadow these incredible speeds.
Bugatti Veyrons costing more than $1 million deserve better performance.
Is the Dodge Viper affected by Bugatti Veyron Syndrome
From its inception, the Dodge Viper had obvious flaws. The Viper's outdated design and poor handling made it uncomfortable for drivers to be behind the wheel. The Dodge was too costly for the features it offered. While the V10 engine's incredible power was the highlight of the vehicle, the rest of the features made it look bad.
The interior of the Dodge Viper is filled with plastic parts that are very poor quality. The Dodge Viper's performance and design flaws are not covered up, just like the Bugatti Veyron.
How can the Porsche 911 make this list?
This is by far one of the most controversial picks. So we'll get to the point. The GT3 and GT3 RS models of the Porsche 911 have a reputation as having trouble-free engines. The primary problem with the GT3 engine was due to a loose bolt joint on the piston connecting rod. Porsche finally overcame the GT3 engine issues by replacing and removing the motors.
The engine replacements were followed up by faster repairs than the original motors. Given the small number of cases, the German manufacturer was able to take the financial loss.
When evaluating whether the 911 is underrated, it's useful to compare it to other Porsche cars. In 2005, Porsche introduced the Cayman model. The Cayman is a compromise between the Porsche 911 and Porsche Boxster. The 2015 Porsche Cayman was a memorable year. Porsche decided to reduce Cayman's power so that it wouldn't overtake the 911. This strategic decision highlights some of the unneeded hype surrounding 911.
What's wrong with the 2008 Dodge Challenger
The early 2000s Dodge Challengers had a lot of work ahead of them. Many Dodge Challenger enthusiasts were disappointed by the 2008 Challenger’s plastic-like appearance. The 2008 Dodge Challengers were so wide that they didn't feel and look like normal cars. 2008 Challengers were unable to reach impressive speeds with the HEMI V8 engine.
Here are the shortcomings of 2008 Dodge Challengers:
The 2008 Challenger was not able to stand out enough from the other SRT8 vehicles. The 2008 Challenger's interior wheel designs were somewhat dry. However, the vehicle's rear-wheel-drive configuration was not ideal.
To be fair, Dodge learned from these errors and made improvements in newer Challenger models such as the Hellcat.
Is the Audi A6 living up to its Supercar-Killer Status or not?
You'll be happy with the Audi RS6’s blazing speed if you drive straight. This vehicle has issues when you stop driving straight to assess the car's handling. Audi RS6 drivers have complained about the steering's inability to respond. The Audi RS6's front bias weight distribution and Quattro all-wheel-drive systems make it difficult to have a spirited drive.
It would be easy to believe that the Audi RS6's straight-line speed would make it a powerful engine. The Audi RS6 engine sounds a lot less than what you would hear in Mercedes-Benz AMG models or BMW's double-boosted V8.
What should I consider before buying a Tesla Model S model?
The Tesla hype is real. Tesla Model S owners often talk about their Tesla Model S and how it is superior to other cars. The vehicle's exterior design is the most problematic area of Tesla's Model S. Model S's have average paint quality and finishes, as well as inconsistent panel gaps.
You may be uncomfortable with the screen-to-buttons ratio of the Tesla Model S. Model S owners can control almost every aspect of their vehicle through a large dashboard screen. Some drivers see the Model S's dashboard screen only occasionally. To see if this is true, you'll need to test drive a Model S.
Is the A80 Toyota Supra really that fast & furious?
This pick may be difficult for Fast & Furious fans. For its versatility, the A80 Toyota Supra was a popular choice. To achieve the coveted performance, you will need to tune the A80 Toyota Supra. A Toyota Supra A80 driver with around 900 horsepower likely spent around $20,000 on upgrading their vehicle.
The factory A80 Toyota Supra models had an exhaust system that included three emissions-friendly catalytic convertors. This standard exhaust system created an unimpressive howl and requires extensive aftermarket tuning.
What went wrong with Ford's Mustang?
Ford's Mustang has been plagued by problems since the 1960s. The original pony Mustangs were popular due to their attractive looks and fair prices. Unfortunately, sales began to decline towards the end of the 1960s as the Mustang became heavier and slower. Due to its look-alike appearance and so-so performance, the Ford Mustang's mid-90s were one of its most notable periods.
The 1994 Ford Mustang featured a four-speed automatic transmission and a dated 4.6-liter V8 motor. If you wanted to maximize your Mustang's performance, you could upgrade to the Cobra version. It has 239 kW of power.
Is the Lamborghini Countach living up to its poster status?
Lamborghini's Countach is one the most iconic cars of all time. But beauty is just skin deep. The doors of this extravagant sports car barely lift and can be difficult to enter. The worst thing about the Countach doors is that they will fall without warning. Be aware.
The Lamborghini Countach is a unique driving experience. These controls are too heavy and the clutch can get stuck at least once every 3,000 miles.
The Lamborghini Countach might be better left hanging on your walls.
Are Ferrari F355's full of maintenance issues?
The Ferrari F355's elegant design and versatility are not enough to compensate for its lackluster craftsmanship. Ferrari F355 owners can expect to spend a lot on repairs. This Ferrari was known to leak oil immediately after its factory exit.
F355 drivers often complain about the door handles. These door handles of Ferrari are concealed under the hot vents, creating an inconvenient entry.
Which BMW M Series is the Most Overrated?
BMW introduced the unusual-looking M Coupe in the 1990s. BMW's M Coupe was plagued by a short wheelbase. A car with a short wheelbase can experience stability problems like spinouts or traction loss. M Coupe owners were often frustrated by transmission problems, as they experienced sticky and failing shifters that led to frequent failures.
The main problem with M Coupe transmission problems is the high cost of repairs. Drivers should consider purchasing a new M Coupe as they pose fewer long-term issues.
