What car do you think was ahead of it's time?

It has to be the Buick Reatta. Amazing.

Huge +1 on the 959 and the F40.

Performance wise, McLaren F1 all day long. It took over 10 years, 4 more cylinders, and 4 turbos, to overcome what the F1 has accomplished.

Another +1 on the 740iL (get it right people)... the amount of computers (2 ECU's for each side of the engine) and everything else that it came with... ya.

Not a production car, but the Chrysler ME 12 would have been a beast of an American super car.
