Sports cars should be sexy and make people go “oooh”, that’s the point. Sure they are also incredible machines, but the “oooh” factor is why we covet sports cars. This is not a list about those cars, this is a list of sports cars that make people go “ugh” and shake their head.
These cars not only fall short of that goal, some of them are an absolute mess, pieces and parts mashed together with the label of a sports car. The reality is that each of these cars was a big miss and due to the output engineers were probably relieved of their jobs.
Not all of these vehicles are awful from top to bottom; some actually perform very well and live up to the high-performance hype expected from sports cars. Maybe focusing on performance was the problem because the style, feel and practicality of these cars are downright head-scratching.
