Car of your dreams?

Very good taste, Nuno! New Lexus LS is just awesome. Beautiful and technologically one step ahead. And arguably very reliable too, above all it's a Lexus. But, answering your question, I love British and Japanese cars in general. There are many cars I would like to achieve one day... BMW 335i Coupe, Mercedes CLS, Lexus LS, Jaguar XKR, Aston Martin (any one), Lotus Elise and much others...

Good taste Nuno. Talking about Lexus... I think I'd go for the IS-F. (The F stands for Fast. It's Lexus giving a reply to BMW M's and Mercedes AMG's. :D) I would also consider a Honda. It's my favorite brand. I love the Accord.

Toyota is getting bullish on its J-factor. The automaker defines that factor as "global acceptance of Japanese-inspired design and cultural sensibilities" — not to be confused with the O'Reilly Factor, which often is neither accepting nor sensible. Toyota's latest concept, the FT-HS, supposedly exudes J-factor galore. It's an origami of sloping panels and chiseled edges, complete with a sliding roof panel and enormous carbon fiber wheels. Other nifty features include carbon fiber underbody diffusers and a slight depression running down the roof for sleeker aerodynamics. For reduced weight, the roof, wheels and diffusers are made of carbon fiber. Inside, the cockpit holds wafer-thin seats and a hub-free steering wheel that's connected to the dashboard by telescoping extensions at its base. The backseat accommodates two people, though you'll lose that space when the roof panel is lowered. The climate and audio controls look like something straight out of "Star Trek" — they're elements that float on miniature consoles off each side of the steering wheel. The cabin includes dual front airbags, an unlikely detail for a car this early in the concept stage. Both are housed in fist-sized pods. Under the hood, the FT-HS holds a 3.5-liter V-6 that's coupled with a hybrid motor to produce around 400 horsepower. Driving the rear wheels through an automated-manual transmission, the engine allows the car to zip from zero to 60 mph in an estimated 4 seconds — on par with a Porsche 911 Turbo. Though it's doubtful the FT-HS will ever appear in its current form, elements could be adapted toward everything from a future Scion tC replacement to a full-blown competitor to Nissan's upcoming GT-R performance car. The return of the Supra, perhaps? We'll keep dreaming.

Now this is not hard to answer. The car of my dreams is any car which is taken off the road and crushed. Have you car drivers no respect for the rest of us. Dont you realise that every time you get in your car and start the engine you are poisoning the air that we all breath. You are poisoning the air i breath, you breath and the air our children breathe. All this talk about greenhouse gases and what causes them and yet hardly any mention of cars and their murdering drivers. All i can say to every driver in the world is MAY GOD HAVE MERCY ON YOUR SOUL.
