12 Of The Ugliest Sports Cars Of All Time

Sports cars should be sexy and make people go "oooh", that’s the point. Sure they are also incredible machines, but the “oooh” factor is why we covet sports cars. This is not a list about those cars,

Sports cars should be sexy and make people go "oooh", that’s the point. Sure they are also incredible machines, but the “oooh” factor is why we covet sports cars. This is not a list about those cars, this is a list of sports cars that make people go “ugh” and shake their head.

These cars not only fall short of that goal, some of them are an absolute mess, pieces and parts mashed together with the label of a sports car. The reality is that each of these cars was a big miss and due to the output engineers were probably relieved of their jobs.

Not all of these vehicles are awful from top to bottom; some actually perform very well and live up to the high-performance hype expected from sports cars. Maybe focusing on performance was the problem because the style, feel and practicality of these cars are downright head-scratching.

Just missing the list are a number of Dodge Charger models, a car that has tried to regain it’s seventies muscle car charm for years, but for the most part has come up short. Same goes for the Ford Mustang series, another “brand” that has no success replacing their classic look.

Do you like to cars that look like space ships or have no business being on the road? How about vehicles that just look uncomfortable or just plain ugly? If yes, then sit back and enjoy. Here are the 15 ugliest sports cars of all-time.

I mean c’mon, this one is pretty easy, right? The “boxy” look combines with, what is that, an incline? Somewhere in the design of this car the balance of sleek and cool got lost and craziness was injected. Apparently this happened very early in the process. With all of the choices, who is going to walk up to this car in the showroom and say, “That’s the one, right there, that’s the car of my dreams!” Probably the person who designed it, I can’t imagine anyone else forking over a lot of cash for a car that looks like that.

If this is what we can expect the future to look like, maybe we should reconsider quitting our bad habits. The finish is dull, unfortunately that’s by design. The DeLorean DMC-12 has stainless-steel panels and are not painted when they leave the factory. It’s unclear what the plan was with the windows as they have this weird shade, again, not the future I’m hoping for. The cubed lights do not look like the future, they look like the past. Next time someone decides to make the car of the future they should be forced to watch a Jetsons marathon because whatever happened here didn’t work.

Somewhere, someone messed up with this design and it’s not in just one spot. Start with the exposed wheel rods, but the overall body looks like something that comes with a set of Play-Doh. The original engineer must have quit and the next guy in line really liked dune buggies. Apparently this car kicks butt from a performance standpoint so that’s good. You will want to always be driving really fast so no one sees you in this design catastrophe.
