6. Tesla Model S

Tesla Model S

Elon Musk’s automotive venture has wowed a lot of people and silenced a number of critics. They’ve probably built a lot more cars than anyone thought they would when Tesla was founded more than 10 years ago.

The brand’s Model S sedan proves that green can be sexy. Now, if you’re a dyed-in-the-wool automotive nut you’re probably thinking this car has no place on a list of the 10 sexiest cars, but just hear us out for a minute.

Getting started in the automotive industry is an enormously, gigantically, impossibly hard and financially draining challenge. The fact that Tesla has found any success is incredible. But one test of the Model S and it’s not hard to understand why; the car is really good.

This all-electric four-door is fashioned from lightweight aluminum and can comfortably seat five adults. It rear-mounted motor provides instant torque for brisk acceleration. The performance version with an 85 kWh battery pack can reach 60 miles an hour from a standstill in 4.2 seconds; maximum driving range is a claimed 265 miles.

The Tesla Model S proves green can be sexy, we just hope this vehicular selection doesn’t gets your dander up, or anything else for that matter.

    it was a tossup between the TESLA Model S and the 458, Viper, Aventador, and 911.

    How can anyone think the Model S is sexy?

  • johnls39 .

    I understand that the Model S is an incredible car and a complete package. I seen the car in person and I can say that it is beautiful but I do agree that there is nothing sexy about it.

    RS5? I8? Gran turismo? Come on guys..lol

    f12 is much better looking than that cookie cutter lambo. They all look the same, they are like porche.

  • Sarah H

    I’ll give you the RS5 and maybe even the i8… but the Gran Turismo is a sexy sexy car.

  • Sarah H

    F12 FOR SURE!

    i think the mc stradale is alright but the normal one just looks like something is not right, to my eyes at least.

    The 2015 Corvette Z06 convertible belongs in there. Sorry chevy haters, but the Z06 is world class looks, performance and quality. As soon as our Government stop reporting every possible defect, which they don’t even touch on the exotics, American will be recognized again.

  • Khoi Ho

    Nah…The Koenigsegg Agera R is da sexiest in my perspective.

  • John

    No Lotus?

    Performance, no question on the Corvette. But come on, it looks like something i had in my Matchbox car collection as a child. Powerful and aggressive? Yes. Sexy? Far from it.

    Hmmm, definite bias towards Europe here. How about the already mentioned ‘Vette and Viper – both definitely sexier than any Audi out there. Then there’s the Japanese hot wheels – Nissan 370z Nismo, Lexus LFA, Honda NSX – to name just a few. Back in Europe, there’s the Porsche 911 & Jaguar F-Type that easily out-sexy half of the list. And just to stir the pot, none of them hold a candle to the 1963 Corvette Stingray split window coupe.

    Give me a break, The Audi and the Tesla are sexier than the new Corvette. Not one American car on the list. Look at that Audi, talk about a washed out bar of soap with wheels. Since when do a mesh grille, shaped like a snow plow, and aluminum covered side mirrors make a sexy car. Someone got to you guys!

    The Mk3 (not available in the US) VW Scirocco should definitely be on this list
