So many sports cars, so little time. If only someone would organize them into one succinct chart, categorizing them according to common properties and laying them out in an authoritative graph. Wait, Car and Driver is someone, right?

The geeks over at C/D have created a pseudo-scientific chart modeled on Mendeleev's periodic table of elements. C/D's Periodic Table of Sports Cars covers everything from the Mazda Miata to the Bentley Speed Six, and just about everything in between. Best of all, they've made it available in a downloadable PDF you can print out and hang in your locker, garage, bedroom... wherever. It's science! Take a look over the layout and let 'em know what they got right and what they missed.

      No Jag E-Type?
      No Jag XJS?
      No Tesla?
        • 4 Years Ago
        E-Type is there, under 'XKE'

        XJS is garbage and doesn't deserve to be anywhere

        Tesla is an electric Lotus, who cares?

      Haha, wow that is pretty clever. I might hang that on my garage wall or give it to some gear head friends for Christmas as a joke gift.

      No Audi R8?
        • 4 Years Ago
        That should be under the "cheap synthetically engineered copy materials" section...

      I couldn't find the Miata then I realized I was looking for Gy, not Mx.

      Can't see the Cadillac Allante and not think of Kelly Bundy and the Bundy Bounce...

      Donald Healey could have been there, the bugeyes and 100/4's are worthy entries.

        Well the list is about sports cars, the only one off my head that they made was the Karmann Ghia.

        But if you think about it, the Porsche 914 is a VW.

      The only one that seems to jump off the page at me is the Pontiac Fiero under "Collectible Metals". Really?
        • 4 Years Ago
        That's you. The car is widely acknowledged as one of GM's "turkeys". If that car is a "collectible", it's probably due to the fact that few are left around. And if that's the criteria for placing it in this category, then the Citation and Chevette should also be there!

        Every time I see a nice condition late model Fiero GT, it always catches my eye.
