For Episode #191 of the Autoblog Podcast, we thought we'd hand it over to the audience. Your topic: Forgotten (and wholly awesome) supercars since 1990. There are, of course, the cars that made a splash: Ferrari's F40, the McLaren F1, Lamborghini's iconic Countach and its Rubenesque replacement, the Diablo all fall within the 1990-2010 timeframe, but so do comparative oddities like the Cizeta-Moroder V16t, Isdera Commendatore 112i and Consulier GTP.

You and your fellow readers can add your choices to the box below, as well as vote on the suggestions of others. We'll skim the cars that get the most votes and offer our individual and widely varied takes on your choices. What, you're still here? Off to Wikipedia with you!

      Wow, so many people thumb down the ME Four Twelve by Chrysler. I thought it looked great.

      "The ME stands for "mid-engined." The quad-turbo, V-12 powered Chrysler ME Four Twelve supercar may not only establish real-world performance records but may also set a record for lightning-quick vehicle development. It took less than one year to complete from start to finish (though we don't know what they started with)."

      Perhaps autoblog posters can help, but I am thinking about a TVR that was either a V12 or V16 had over 1000 hp. I believe it was over 1200hp, it was super light.

      I think only one was ever built. The test driver drove it once and was afraid to drive it again. He basically said it was undriveable.

      That's my obscure sports car vote.

      My choice: 1994 Pontiac Grand Am GT. It had a skirt, fog lights (standard), alloy wheels, a spoiler, and GT-only taillights. Oh....and the four-speed automatic. Pontiac was excitement!

      /sarcasm.

      Not registering for another web login just for one comment, so I am posting it here.

      +1 for the Isdera Commendatore 112i.

      I have always loved that sleek aero shape, and the spine-hinged double-opening engine compartment.

      TVR Sagaris! It's so sexy... I sometime wish that there's a vette bodykit that looks like a Sagaris. Omg why would you do that to a vette? If it's not a ZR1 I don't care lol.

      Is the Wiesmann MF5 obscure enough? I love the style it has; augmented retro look with some absurd performance figures to back it up.

      Other cars that would have a spot on my list: the gillet vertigo, the panoz esperante GT, the qvale mangusta, the morgan aero supersports, and the pagani zonda C12s. I'm sure some of these won't be obscure enough to qualify in the eyes of some of the other enthusiasts, but oh well.

      It would have to be the Tramontana R. It's like a F1 car for the road as you sit in the middle and the passenger sits behind you. Most of the supercar makers have been trying to make there cars just like an F1 car and Tramontana are the only ones who do it. It has a Mercedes V12 and comes in open or closed cockpit. 5th Gear did a review of one.
