    Think I'm done with my sports car phase after the Porsche, Lotus, MX-5 and Jaguar (although at some point I might get one along side the sensible car)

    (German model names, sorry!)

    Last car: Suzuki Alto EF (III. Generation, built 1998)
    Current Car: Suzuki Ignis FH (1rst Gen., built 2001)
    Future Car: if I need a small car and legs fit, then Suzuki Alto or Toyota Aygo, if legs don't fit Mitsubishi Colt. If I need a big car Dacia Logan MCV.

    You see I am more on the low cost end of the line :D

    If I have too much money and don't need a car for everyday use Suzuki Cappuccino or Mazda MX-5 (2008 version) or VW Beetle (version before the massive facelift, like you still see them in Mexico) or Citroen 2CV or Citroen DS Coupe (70ies version) or old Mini Cooper or Renault R4 (late 70ies).

    Dodge Dynasty->Dodge Neon->Honda Del Sol->Hyundai Accent->Toyota Echo.

    My high school cars, the Chryslers, were by far the most reliable. The Dynasty was a V6 with only 10k on it before the previous owner died, so it didn't have any of the troubles most Dynasties had, and the only thing that ever went wrong with the Neon was the transmission blew up. I neutral-bombed it. Simple fix though. I found a neon that was in a flood, towed it home, and converted my car to a stick shift.

    My echo now is a great car, but it's SOOOOO boring. The accent was the worst I had ever owned, and the del sol was the most fun, but it looked all beaten up.

    Future car (after miraculous windfall): Tesla model S
