10.) Porsche Panamera V6

The Mortal Sin: No matter how fast it is (and it is fast) or how competent around a track (you'd be surprised), the Porsche Panamera's still an ungainly four-door creature. In Turbo trim it's a remarkable sedan, but in V6 trim it's just a really nice Toyota Camry designed for older MILFs and younger accountants.

9.) Stephen Ireland's Bentley Continental GTC

The Mortal Sin: The Continental lacks so much integrity as a vehicle and has already suffered some remarkably bad customizations. So to make one worse is a sin against God, humanity, and the memory of W.O. Bentley. Given by Manchester City midfielder Stephen Ireland to his 24-year-old girlfriend it's, just, we don't have words.

8.) The Fast And The Furious Franchise

The Mortal Sin: Instead of paying tribute to cars and car culture, the Fast And The Furious franchise continues to make cars that are more parody than homage. The first film created a stirring in the hearts of young enthusiasts, although in a misleading sort of way, but each new film now mostly just creates a stirring in the stomach ahead of a somatic evacuation.

7.) BMW X6 M

The Mortal Sin: Tarnishing the one good M name by attaching it to a hunchbacked crossover thing and charging $88K for it.

6.) The Dragon Vette

The Mortal Sin: It's the world's worst custom Corvette. And it blasphemes both Corvettes and dragons. And the guy can't spell "dagron" correctly.

5.) Poorly Modified Volvo 164

The Mortal Sin: There's nothing wrong with customizing your Volvo, even if it's a classic 164. But there's a line... and you crossed it.

4.) The Not-So-Beautiful Black Beauty

The Mortal Sin: Destroying possibly 12 real Imperials to sully the legacy of the original Black Beauty with bling and guns and missiles all for a Green Hornet remake that might suck.

3.) Hello Kitty Anything

The Mortal Sin: Taking the Ferrari name (or any other automaker name) in vain by turning it into a lame cartoon.

2.) The Painted/Chromed Out DeLorean

The Mortal Sin: It's vanity to think you can improve upon the original stainless steel finish with such awful coloring and cheap chrome touches. It's possible to make a sexy painted DeLorean, but this ain't it.

1.) Lotus CEO Dany Bahar

The Mortal Sin: Taking over a company we love despite not liking cars or enjoying talking about cars. He does love fatties, though. He is a chubby chaser. Give him that.

"but in V6 trim it's just a really nice Toyota Camry designed for older MILFs and younger accountants."

REALLY?!?!?! Enough of the Panamera hate okay!?!?! 300HP FROM A V6 IS AMAZING. 19 years ago you could get a top of the line BMW 7-Series with a V12 with that much power! Just because the Panamera doesn't fit into your closed little minds of what a Porsche should be doesn't automatically mean that you guys should make fun of it every chance you get.

You guys are also wrong about it being ugly too, because it is the second best selling Porsche on the market today! the number one selling Porsche would be the Cayenne. Another one you guys criticized, and look were it is now. At the top. If you don't like it, then don't talk about how much you hate it, or how it should be killed off and is a disgrace to Porsche.

Many people who are a fan of the Panamera are getting tired of all the hate and negativity. Please, just cut it some slack, It's Christmas.
