Let's say every automaker's out of business (not too difficult of a leap, eh?) and you're a Saudi prince with an unlimited budget looking to build his own car company. What's your fantasy lineup of current models?
You'll notice we don't have a mid-size sedan, minivan, crossover or other such nonsense. Which is as it should be. You will find a lot of high horsepower. Soccer moms, in our world, need not apply. Here's what we'd choose for Sheik Bin Jalopnik Motors — or "JM," if you will:
Super Car: Corvette ZR1
Sports Coupe: Hyundai Genesis 3.8 Track
Muscle Car: 2010 Ford Mustang GT w/ Track Pack
Muscle Sedan: Pontiac G8 GXP
Convertible: Mazda MX-5 Miata
Luxury Sedan: 2009 Cadillac CTS-V
Luxury Coupe: Bentley Brooklands
SUV: Jeep Wrangler, Mercedes G-Class (tie)
Off-Road Pickup: Ford F-150 Raptor, Jeep Wrangler Brute (tie)
Truck-Car: Holden VE Ute SS
Sport Wagon: Audi RS6 Avant
Small Car: Mini Cooper S JCW
