In a listing of the 50 worst cars ever, Time Magazine slimes the Model T and Explorer because they were successful, the EV1 because electric vehicles were not commercially viable in time to meet California’s fuel efficiency requirements. Consider these lines

  • Model T: A century later, the consequences of putting every living soul on gas-powered wheels are piling up, from the air over our cities to the sand under our soldiers’ boots. [emphasis added]
  • Explorer people became addicted to the pose

That line about the Explorer applies just as much to the Prius, which sells better than other hybrids because of the instant green posing drivers can do, regardless how much they have to rely on carbon offsets in the rest of their lives.

Among the cars that deserve to be on the list is the 2002 BMW 7-Series.
