Sex sells
, as the saying goes. Unfortunately, Forbes discovered, the pool for this year's sexiest cars--Bentley, BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Porsche, etc.--was small and its members nearly incestuous. Porsche alone had enough models to take all spots. (Not that enthusiasts would disagree.)

So the magazine decided to expand its horizons and look at the idea of a sexy from a few other perspectives. What, for example, would a person living in their car consider sexy? The results:

  • Sexiest Car For College Students: Saturn Sky
  • Sexiest Car For "Country Living": Dodge Ram Power Wagon
  • Sexiest Car For Desperate Housewives: Subaru WRX STi Limited
  • Sexiest Car For Hip-Hop Moguls: Rolls-Royce Phantom
  • Sexiest Car For Hollywood Agents: Lexus RX 400h
  • Sexiest Car For Miami Beach Plastic Surgeons: Lamborghini Murciélago Roadster
  • Sexiest Car For Mobsters: Cadillac Escalade
  • Sexiest Car For Newly Divorced Dads: Chevrolet Corvette Convertible
  • Sexiest Car For Newly Divorced Moms: Mercedes-Benz SL65 AMG
  • Sexiest Car For People Living In Their Cars: Honda Element
  • Sexiest Car For Washington Lobbyists: Cadillac CTS
(Thanks, Karen!)

      A Saturn Sky for a college student? Yeah, must be a prissy frat boy or spoiled sorority girl. I had a Saturn in college (actually I still drive it now), a 10 year old SW2. No self respecting college student making his (or her) own money can afford a Sky.

      Another Ford GT wrecked! See page A5 of The Staten Island Advance. Friday May 5th edition. A beautiful red goes to the junk heap!

      They talked about this on the Jalopnik precast a few days ago.

      The most bizarre: Sexiest Car For Desperate Housewives: Subaru WRX STi Limited

      But, the best, if you think about it is:
      # Sexiest Car For Newly Divorced Dads: Chevrolet Corvette Convertible
      # Sexiest Car For Newly Divorced Moms: Mercedes-Benz SL65 AMG

      This goes to show who ends up with the money!

      as far as the comment of there being no "Sexiest car for happly married man". i think it is implied that the "Sexiest Car For Newly Divorced Moms" was once The happily married dad's car.

      The notion of the Honda Element being sexy is down right ludicrous. However, I would agree with its 'habitable' element(pardon the pun) to it.

      STIs aren't sexy. They're ugly in a good way.

      Sexiest car for "happily married man and woman" - that would be anything thats PAID FOR!! Doesn't matter what kind of car, when you aren't in debt to something that's guaranteed to depreciate, you couldn't be more happier. Extra money for vacations = I'll take that any day.

      My wife and I are happier than ever since we paid off both of our vehicles in one fatal swoop.

      Since when can a college kid afford a brand new Saturn Sky? I drove a '89 Honda Accord with power windows (all broken) and duct tape holding on the side molding in college. I'm sick of seeing rich ass frat boys driving around in 350Z's or Bimmers. Guess I just can't stand being spood fed everything like a baby...I actually like to work/earn my more glamorous possessions.
