In the same way that people judge you on the watch you wear, what phone you use, who you voted for or what music you listen to, the car you drive is an extension of your own personality and is judged, heavily.
Unfortunately, some cars carry a certain reputation that could result in you getting laughed at, questioned as to why you bought it or just mocked in general for owning it. There are a number of reasons for this, from reputations of poor reliability to people not liking it because it got made fun of on Top Gear once. Here are 7 cars that don’t deserve the bad reputation that they have.
1. Porsche Boxster
This sporty roadster is sadly used as the butt of many jokes. Specifically, jokes about the owner’s manliness (if the owner’s male) or something about how they only bought it because they couldn’t afford a 911. To be fair, most Boxster owners would rather buy a 911 if they could, but we have to remember that they cost quite a bit extra.
The Boxster is a fantastic roadster that’s not just fast, but also an amazing looking car. Unlike the 911, it has a mid-engine making it a better balanced car and many of those that have had a go in one will vouch for it being one of the funnest cars they’ve ever driven. So don’t insult it if you’ve never been in one!
