I can live with someone choosing the Vette as the "best" car in America, though I personally disagree, but the last statement shows the author is out of touch with reality.

BMWs, for example, are based on performance and handling in what looks like a utility, (as opposed to sports), car. Cadillac, Mercedes Benz, and Lincoln are based on silence, riding comfort, room, smoothness, and luxury.
Porsche, the Corvette, and the Jaguar sports car are based on total performance.
Best American car is the Tesla Model S. Best English car is the Bentley Continental or Rolls Royce Phantom. Best Japanese car is the Nissan GT-R or Toyota Supra Turbo.
Theres no point in putting old cars in lists such as these, because the old crap can't hold a candle to the new. 1961 E-Type, 1991 NSX, 1967 Torana, 1962 GTO? Please. There are current cars that wipe the floor with all of these turds, in performance, comfort and reliability. We're in the best automotive era ever right now.
