Jalopnik commentary/reviews/readers tend to prefer small, lightweight, bare-bones cars. Nothing wrong with that but this is why they place the Spark over the Camaro. The Camaro isn't for everyone, especally in today's "greenie" world. It takes more skill to drive compared to a transportation appliance, big-windowed, bubble car like the Spark (not docking GM for the car....every car manufacturer has one). Plus, people need to realize car weight is part of the deal on a 400+ hp RWD car. More robust suspension/chassis parts equals more weight.
They hit on decent points for all the cars though.

Unless you wake up every morning and choose between an Aston Martin and a Porsche then you're just an ass if you dont like any of the cars on that list.

I used to read that site everyday when they used to post interesting stories and reviews. Now I just check it out every now and then for Chris Harris reviews and Russian dash cams . Everything else is about how good the gt86 is and how cheap the miata is.

FYI no he's not, this is on "Oppositelock" which is sort of like an off-topic forum for Jalopnik. He's a reader. It was an interesting perspective so we promoted it to the FP for people to see.

If you want our professional reviews, here's us driving the new Aston Martin GT4 race car:

new 911 Carrera 4S:

New Impala:

And... a 1972 Caddy Ambulance because why not?

I was being sarcastic, his "review" was very opinionated. I've read tons of actual automotive reviews, this guy is a joke. He should be reviewing Power Wheels.

Why does no one review Power Wheels? I'd read that.
