These lists are always done as space fillers by people given the task of filling space, yet some of them are hard to pass by without getting involved with them.
The Solstice coupe is obviously a fairly rare and interesting car.
Volvo V70R, well I guess they are neater than the base models, but they are still a Volvo station wagon.....
914s weren't Porsches anywhere but North America, IIRC, where the name was calculated to sell well. I drove a 914-6 (the 6 cylinder was always tagged as a Porsche) in the old days when a couple of friends were racing them against each other and thought they were pretty neat. I drove one again a few years ago and found the handling OK but not up to current standards and the performance bland - 110 BHP just doesn't impress, but many hauled the 911T engine out and stuck the 2.0 S engine in which improved things quite a bit.
BMW 1 series M, yup, good car - see Top Gear report on them.
F40 - sure, who'd say otherwise, although not exactly my favourite Fazzaz.
Original Cobra 289? Yup, drove one of those too (considered buying a race car). Evil beasts with handling that didn't match the power, but damned exciting!
Toyota 200GT, McClaren, Tucker, never experienced them, though seen all of them and had a good look.
As for the Lancia Stratos - very few over here and I lusted after one that was for sale years ago. Seriously fun cars.
