Forbes Warns: Most Dangerous Cars

Nissan and Honda fanboys, double-check your blind spots. The 350Z and S2000 are on Forbes's list of most dangerous cars, gleaned via a pair of usual car-data suspects.

Mainly, they say, due to its young, inexperienced and hoontastic driver base. The S2000's shortfall is curtain airbags, thanks to its, well, convertible top.
