What is the Charlie Sheen of cars?

It's got one speed: GO! It's possibly a danger to itself and others. It's got a manic, bitchin' rock-star lifestyle that haters love to hate. Naturally, it's winning. What is the Charlie Sheen of cars?


My vote is for the early Porsche 911 Turbo. I'd imagine just as many Hollywood dilettantes have been caught unawares by the 930's snappy lift-throttle oversteer; violent, turbolagged tip-in, and simultaneous front lift and rear drift as have been caught out by Sheen's continued rantings. Of course, there must be others.
