In the News "Ferdinand A. Porsche, who designed the original Porsche 911, the snazzy, powerful sports car that became the lasting signature of the German automobile company founded by his grandfather and later run by his father, died on Thursday in Salzburg, Austria. He was 76." I believe only Italians can design beautiful cars (I mean, game over, kids), but there's no denying that the 911 is a true icon. Cars technically don't have a place on OSNews, but Ferdinand Porsche's passing cannot go by unmentioned.

I'm the only person in the world who thinks the E-type if FUGLY.


Yes, you're the only one I've heard say that so far, both online and in real life.

The British always have made the most beautiful sports cars, imho. They manage to mix just the right amount of panache and understatement.

Italian sports cars mostly scream "Hey, look at me. I'm Italian and I'm waving my arms while speaking flamboyantly". Nothing wrong with liking that sorta thing, though.

Only exception is probably the F40, which says "F*ck with me and I'll kill you!!".
