Always nice to see the humble, little 986 make these lists! We all know how great they are

That was the H50, a 'four' door 928 concept car. It was a secret until a few years ago, they rolled it out at a concours. They should have kept it hidden in the basement.

Wow! That is one of the ugliest cars I have ever seen! It really does look like an updated Pacer! I can't stop laughing at how ugly it is.....

Not all Porsches were brilliant. But you can sometimes see a consistent ,maniacal engineering philosophy of complexity uber alles. An example from long ago - Porsche ,yes the Dr. himself, designed a gas/electric hybrid way before it was fashionable. Many of the characteristics of that vehicle continue to this day - check out the "Porsche Elephant". I am not joking !

Okay, call me a jerk, but that is painful to look at ..........

Also, nice pull. It is very Garth/Pacer/esque.

That thing can't be real. It has to be photoshopped. C'mon!
