Ferrari F430-well actually almost any Ferrari will do.

I love the Lotus Esprit, always have.

Candidly, I am getting tired of the 911 looks. Derivative is fine but do we really need to keep looking at the same basic shape for 60 years? To me, its just not that pretty, no matter how many scoops and bulges they stick on the thing.

I actually am thinking of buying a classic 912 to get back to what I liked about the shape to begin with.

One of the reasons I like the Box is that from at least three angles, it DOE NOT look like a 911.

Now, I really LOVE the 968 but hey, what do I know.

A1) DB9 Volante in the flesh, not as much in pictures
A2) Merc SL55 AMG

B) Current Audi S8 - but for best all-time I'd go with the BMW 7 series (e38 95-01))

Agree with SD987 -- if you want the best sedan of the last 10 (or 20 or 30...) years, it's the E38 BMW 7-series.

A) F430
B) AMG S-class (unless you're looking at the interior, in which case the Audi A8 wins).

But good looks or not, I'll never ever own a MB, as long as there are companies like BMW and Audi making sedans!

It's "K-o-e-n-i-g-s-e-g-g" -but that's a tricky one so I'll let it slide. (Excellent choice btw)

However, I think you misspelled RX8.
