It's easy to build bad cars. Just look at Chrysler's recent non-Ram attempts. Boring takes hard work and dedication to engineering the fun out of a platform. Which automaker is building the most boring cars?
It seems like an easy target, but Toyota has really made strides in building cars no enthusiast could love. Gone is a Celica suited for performance. Gone is the weird and awesome supercharged Toyota Previa. Gone, even, is the Toyota MRS Spyder, the one performance-oriented jewel in the lineup. Though, by mid-engined sports car standards, it was fairly boring. Can you name the fastest current Toyota? It's the 2008 Tundra TRD Performance. A truck. Unfortunately, being successful equates to building cars for the cow-like masses so boring no one can complain about them. Boring, apparently, is the new fun.
