    Hot on the heels of Jalopnik's 10 Most infludnetial Cars Inside Line releases their list of the 100 Greatest Cars of all times.

    Yes, the Mini makes the list and is waaaaay up there in the number 2 spot.

    BTW, the BMW 2002 is in 10th place and is described as " the first modern sport sedan."

    Take a look The 100 Greatest Cars of All Time and come back to discuss...

    Sweet!

    I am still baffled as to why the Porsche Panamera is on that list. Its not even been out for 2 years, and somehow ranks higher than other much more historically significant and culturally contributing autos such as V8 Corvette, Mazda RX-7, Toyota Corolla just to name a few... /facepalm

    With just a quick glance through there are two that stood out as pretenders right away:

    At #58 on the esteemed list of 100, I take issue with the Nissan Leaf and at #20 I'm astounded that the 1987 Buick Grand National resides there......

    I take issue with the Leaf, Panamera, and 7-series BMW. Really? *shrug*

    I would have added the Honda S2000 to the list lower than the Miata but they took that concept to a whole new level.

    I'm a Ford guy but I'm not sure the '32 should have been number one. Not sure what should have been in it's place but not the '32. It's a top ten car for sure though.

    I agree with the Leaf, Panamera and Exploder comments - how did they make it? And - 86 Acura Legend?? Why??

    I know the 55 Chevy is on the list, but I also expect to see the 57.

    Come on guys.....of all the bad, good, great and absolutely fantastic cars ever made?

    The 1987 Buick Grand National is the 20th best ever?

    Oh what's the word I'm looking for: "ain't no way".
