The Opposite Locker - Edition XIIIS

This is The Opposite Locker where we try and sort out the cool from the square. You are free to discuss your point of view of the cars, on the board and up to bat, within the comments with an optional use of the "Anna Kendrick Test." This is a discussion system detailing how cool a car is, not how fast, fun, or frivolous it may be, but how well it looks in the cat's pajamas.

Try a different web browser if the polls do not show. Asterisked* cars are moved more than slightly from the original vote by use of veto power, and double asterisked** cars are vehicles moved back under a challenge. If you are confused about whats going on, click here.

  • Chevrolet Volt - As SkilletHead explains, "I gave the Volt the benefit of the doubt and rated it "uncool" instead of square. It oozes less pretentiousness as it looks the most similar to a normal car." There are no particular reasons to vote the Volt 'square' or 'cool', so here it will stay to be lost amongst the crowd. Uncool.

Square (2-1)

  • Toyota Camry
  • Toyota Corolla
  • Porsche Panamera
  • McLaren MP4-12C*
  • Nissan Leaf - Getting the electric car equation to work is more difficult for some automakers than others. Nissan tried, but the Leaf is a lackluster car, both in styling and mechanically. The weak batteries brought the relative difference of running out of electricity compared to gasoline back into the minds of people thinking about making the change. This car won't be remembered. Square.
  • Toyota Prius - Do I have to explain this one?

New Kids on the Block

The Ghibli has arrived in Maserati's lineup to fill the market gap between the Quattroporte and a smaller car that Maserati doesn't make; does this new face hide the brands evil intentions that we've all come to know and love? Are the GranTursimo and Quattroporte too old to compete with Aston Martin, Mercedes, BMW, Jaguar, and the might of it's big sister at Ferrari? In the past decade, Maserati has been known as the brand for hitmen, but as Fiat try and increase sales volume of the brand, will Maserati's perceived demographic fall down a rabbit hole?
