It’s next to impossible to start a new automobile company, just ask Malcolm Bricklin or John Z Delorean. If you do ask John though, please remember to shout. That being said, within recent times there have been the successful launches of Pagani, and Koenigsegg, each of which seem to be an ongoing concern. Add to those the makes that have also arrived but aren’t looking so good these days – Coda, Fisker, Spyker, Tesla, and Aptera (above) and there’s plenty of new and very innovative hardware on out 21st Century roads.
Yesterday I asked for your opinion on the worst of the new century’s cars and trucks, while today I want you to pull a mental Rockford and let us know which model introduced in the 21st Century you think is the best. Cars today are better than they’ve ever been, and it shouldn’t be too hard to figure out which one tops the heap of the iPod generation.
The automobile has been around for more than a century, but it has been within the last 40 or so years that its continuing existence has been seriously called into question. Fuel supplies, environmental impact, and a complete dearth of new naming options seem to have been nails in the car’s coffin since the days when Nixon was an avid audiophile. That doesn’t mean however, that car makers aren’t trying to pump out compelling product, their industry motto seemingly being never say die. If that’s the case, what car or truck of the 21st Century is in your opinion the very best?
