    I think 2000s were best for car design, new enough to look sleek and modern while not looking like current monstrosities that resemble Black person after getting lynched.

      It's not 2000s, it's specifically 2000-2004. And before citing examples of cars being sold after, strictly speaking from the year the original design was released.

      I agree Y2K is good, but I wouldn't hail it as the best. Just the best at what it does. Which is still excellent. Everything after will be looked back on history as The Dead Era or The Blank Era, because there will be 99% nothing worth remembering. The most forgettable of all eras.

    I disagree insofar that the '00s was when it started.

    >the Enzo and SLR had that hideous F1-inspired nose
    >Carrera GT had great proportions but bland surface design
    >Ford GT was just rehashed version of something from 40 years prior
    >Viper Gen-III and -IV were the least aesthetic of the line
    >Pagani, Koenigsegg, Bugatti started doing endless "ultimate/special editions" of cars unveiled the decade before changing only some body parts and paint or making a track-only versions that can't race anywhere.

    There are probably more examples I can't think of right now. From the nu-retro that gripped American cars to forcing the "corporate face" on everything, the 2000s was a notoriously bad era in sportscar design. I feel only Aston-Martin during the Callum/Fisker transition made out okay during this time, but then Reichmann took over and just kept doing the same shit for another decade.

      this was primarily an american trend, and it was kino as frick.

      pic related. the challenger, camaro, prowler, thunderbird, SSR. all cool designs in an area of uninspired mostly bland looking cars.

        I'm pretty sure he was talking about the ford gt that was a slightly larger verion of the 1968 gt40, which in itself was an anglo design.

        No way. Most of the cars chasing that retro trend have aged like milk.

        In the Ford GT's case, it looks good, but it lacks originality. They copy-pasted much of proportions of the old car with little added flare to make the car distinctive as it's own design. Compare that to the 2016 GT that came after or the GT90 concept that came before that do a much better job at being unique designs.

          the only cars that aged like milk were german cars from that era. shit like Bangle Era BMW, all 2000s mercedes, and VAG shit outside Porsche. any car that was trying to look "futuristic" looks like shit now. the retro cars look good, for the same reason the Ford GT does. they were aping actual pleasant designs.

    I don't know about plastic toy but older supercars look better because they weren't as min-maxed. I hate how the 911 looks less and less like a 911 every decade.

      needs to be evolution in a design, otherwise you can't justify people buying the newer version of the same car. happened with the mustang. it went from looking like a modernized replica of the original in 2005 to looking less and less like a retro car and more like a ford fusion.

      It's crazy to think that in the early-2000s nobody really wanted these and they were trading hands for half their original sale price. Now that millennial boomers have money, XJ220 prices are close to what they were when they were new.

      I've come around to it having used to think it pathetic attempt at a supercar being completely overshadowed by McLaren within a year of release. Not even the coolest '90s Jaguar supercar when it was released. However, taking account both in a bubble and the greater supercar landscape at the time, it's a pretty neat car.

        Am I the only fricker on this board that likes the XJ220? DA several years back loved this car. Did not expect such a negative reaction to it from everyone. What's their deal? Yeah it's V6 and the interior is Ford excrement, but otherwise hot damn. There's nothing like it.

    It was very much a transitionary period but the last of an era regardless. Manufacturers were starting to put more 'semi-auto' transmissions in cars, but exotic cars such as that Enzo were still sold as bare bones performance cars complete with no radio and crank windows.
    The interiors of most exotic cars were in a nice period as well where they all still had analog gauges and rarely came with any screens from the factory, too. Manual transmissions were still a thing from most supercar brands even.
    The prevalence of fake vents, elaborate LED light designs, colorful dashboard screens and so on really make it seem like supercars are now built for an entirely different market, which in a sense is true (and the tl;dr of why everything looks like a plastic toy now)

    Too me that looks like a cheap toy. Once the 80s came around things started looking toy-ish. They went from Tonka (boxy, yet cutesy) decade (80s) to Hot Wheels decade (00s)and now the 2020s is the Matchbox decade (kind of like Hot Wheels, just less soulful).
