What's your favorite make/model and why?

I know almost everyone here has some enthusiasm about Ford Focuses, but I'm curious to know what vehicles you like other than the obvious.

1. Post the make and model.
2. Explain what you like most about them.
3. Educate us! We're all here to learn!
*Pictures optional.* It can be a car you're thinking about purchasing, something you've got a soft spot for, or your unicorn. Anything goes!
YOU CAN HAVE MULTIPLE DREAM CARS. YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE PICKY.

Please no slander or degrading of another make or model.
Please no bullying another's point of view.

I'll go ahead and make a post.

This is what I would like for my next daily.

2006-7 Volvo S60 R


I've always had a soft spot for Volvos. I love everything about them. They're Swedish, quick, reliable, and stand alone amazing cars. Comfort, luxury, and sport mixed all in one. Not to mention the I5 and I6 engine line-up they have to offer. I mean have you heard a turboed I5? Oooh man, It's like an orgasm in the ears! Not to mention the capabilities of the 2.5L Turboed 5 cylinder. These cars produce 300 HP and 295 lb*ft of torque to an innovative AWD system. That pushes you to 60mph in roughly 5.5s. They have active suspension management systems, and almost every comfort option you could ask for. All this and maintaining a weight of 3600 lbs and a fuel economy of 18 mpg in the city.

The costs range anywhere from $5-15k dependant on mileage, but I would feel comfortable paying that for a luxury sports sedan!

Yes! Available in both 6-speed Automatic or Manual in 2006-7. The early models came with a 5-speed Automatic, 6-speed Automatic, or 6-speed Manual if I recall correctly.

Scion FR-S/Subaru BRZ/Toyota GT86

First off I love how they look, kind of reminds me of a Porsche. Or a better looking RX-8. I always turn my head when I see one of the road which is becoming a lot more common. 4-cylinder Subaru boxer engine with Toyota direct injection. Only 200hp and 151 ft-lbs of torque so its not straight line fast, but a turbo solves that. Pretty light cars, and the handling I hear is incredible. Lowest center of gravity for any production car (almost as much as the Lexus LFA super car). With skinny Pruis tires so you can drift without doing crazy speeds.
