    A car that will drive itself, so I don't have to deal with that. It doesn't specifically need to be Google's version of the concept, anyone will do.

      I actually enjoy driving, especially long distance, find it peaceful :)

        I'd prefer to have a self-driving car for going to work/errands/traveling with luggage, but if I'm gonna go somewhere more than an hours drive away, and I don't need to take anything, I'd rather get on a motorcycle and drive there.

          I'm not a huge fan of motorcycles, for me, it's something about being behind the wheel of a car on the long open road. I don't know it's hard to explain. I have also found it's not a common stance to have. Which is fine because on road trips, I get to drive and everyone else is usually grateful they don't have to. Win/win :P

        I'm the same way. I would love a car with install-able controls. During the morning drive in to work, that's 20 minutes I could already be writing emails or installing code. Same with the drive home. Essentially it would shorten my days by 40 minutes since I would be mildly productive in those wasted minutes where I need to pay attention to traffic. However, if I'm just driving to sight-see, I would like to be behind the wheel.

        Of course I have a motorcycle for cruising, but sometimes I like to go cruising with air conditioning.

    Nobody said Tesla yet? :o

    I dream of owning a Tesla. Any model, but Model X would be nice :D.

    Edit: Oh, someone mentioned it briefly :(. I knew I couldn't be the first ^_^.

      I agree with this, too bad I doubt i'll ever be able to afford one.

      • zyrthofar

        The Tesla Model 3 should be around 35k$, which is, I guess, the first step towards us being able to afford a Tesla. Maybe when they get these battery super-factories going, the price is going to get even lower, and one day we'll get a sub-20k$ model. I hope :).

      Beat me to it! That Tesla looks like a dream. I'm sick of cars having the stupid, most useless tech inside their cars (dashboard and the UI).

        Indeed! It was time a new and innovative company came to shake things up in the stagnant car industry.

    Caterham 7. I've hired one to drive a couple of times, but would really love to own one.

    • ColonBowel

      What's the appeal of that car?

        I hear the handling. It's weight is so low, and it's power is so high for that weight, that it's very.. zippy. You can go into curves at higher speed and control the vehicle at that higher speed. The top speed isn't as good as other high end cars, but when you can handle like a Caterham, it only matters on straightaways.

        Here's some info about them that I've always loved: They were banned from participating in established races all over the world in the 60s because they were "too fast", consistently beating the competition handily. Occasionally they're allowed to race again, like in 2002 they were permitted to race in the Nürburgring 24 hour race. They beat other racers in their class so bad that they were banned again. They placed 11th overall out of 200 racers, and that was beating out some competition that had MUCH much higher budget ceilings and experience for the race. If I remember correctly, their car was stock as well.

        Power to weight ratio, simplicity, going back to a byegone era.

      I lived near the showhome in Caterham. I absolutely loved the body and thought it looked amazingly classical for a new car. Shame that it is now gone and a retirement home has been put up.

      • Cobbydaler

        Not that new, it started out as the Lotus 7 in 1957!

          What I was meant to say was about the newer models.

          • Cobbydaler
            +3

            Yes, they've been very good at keeping the retro look while updating the mechanicals.

    The Amphicar!! Who wouldn't want an amphibious car.

    Jaguar S-Type. When I was a kid, I would see those iconic headlights and I always that it was cool and kept telling my parents I wanted one (somehow I thought that would work). One of these days!

      I saw a Jaguar F-Type R the other day rolling down Colorado Blvd. It was crazy.

      At first, I saw these Audi-esque headlights in my mirror and thought, "Another rich old white dude car," and to some extent it still is. So this thing pulls up next to me and I think, wow that actually looks pretty cool. Gunmetal grey with black rims and lime green calipers. A very tasteful color scheme. I didn't think much of it until we pulled up to a stop light and I just heard... this noise. I thought, no way can it be that car that sounds too gnarly. I rolled down the windows and heard the most beautiful exhaust note ever to grace my ears. I still can't believe how they got that engine to sound like it does. It's like something out of a dream.

    I always thought the Jeep Cherokee was a nice car.

    • geogrammer

      My family had a Jeep Cherokee when I was a kid, loved that car!! I've always wanted a Jeep Wrangler, myself, though.

      • spaceghoti
        +3

        I've really wanted to Jeep Wrangler for a while, but not because I think it's all that. I want it because I live in Colorado and having a four-wheel drive vehicle is practically a requirement when driving in winter. The Wranglers are the most cost effective vehicles to maintain, even if they're not all that fuel efficient.

        • geogrammer
          +3

          That makes sense! I've remember wanting one since I was a little kid. I just think they look cool :p Right now I'm actually living without a car (city-dweller), and I'm actually really enjoying it.

      Finally got one. Heated/cooled seats. Sunroof. Push-button start. Self opening/closing hatch. Rain-sensing wipers.

      I plan to drive it until the wheels fall off.

    A hackable Jeep.

    All of them. I love cars, things that go vroom.

    '67 Ford Fairlane GT "R-Code" no doubt about it.

    For me, I'd love to have a Hennessey Venom GT. Or my own helicopter.

    Ever since in late -90's I saw BMW Z3 at a yacht club for the first time, I wanted one. I always wanted the hard-top version. Dark silver. Or black.I had opportunities to buy one. I could have financed one many times. I don't know why I never did. When I was working at BMW in Münich, I could have certainly could have gotten a good one. I was browsing auto web sites there, and spotted one like I wanted for 900€. "Ehh, it would be a hassle to own a car in the city.. Maybe later..."

    Damn... I sitll want one.

    Brb, going to browse German used car websites. I could use a summer vacation trip from Finland. Just need one way ticket =)

    I would love an 80s sports car. Either a 240z or Supra. I've legitimately thought about trading my '03 eclipse for one, but I don't have enough free time to tinker. As I understand it, those cars tend to need simple-but-constant maintenance to stay running well.

    A private plane, like one of those small front propeller planes. Then get my pilots licence. Still in the dream pipeline :)

    Mercedes G-Class. I love the way it looks old and new at the same time.

      G-Wagen, 30 years of class :) I read recently on an MB forum that there was going to be design change to a more rounded styling. I hope not, its great as it is

        I just checked, the interior will get an overhaul. Imagine that- incorrect information on an online forum \0/

    I haven't seen anyone say Lamborghini yet. I just think they are soo appealing to the eye and I just find them attractive.

    A black Holden Maloo with red wheels and flames going down the bonnet and sides. The back would have the word Blaze written on it.

    Either a Chevrolet Task Force or a bobber. There is something about a vehicle just working without all the bells and whistles.
