Porsche 928 fra Risky business just sold for a shadow under $ 2 million at Barrett Jackson in Houston in the weekend. It’s way too much for a 928, even one that Tom Cruise reportedly learned to drive in. It was not the only 928 used to film, although it was the one that was shown most on screen that has since received most TLC from Porsche itself. It even has autographs from members of the cast.
Not so long ago we asked which movie car changed you. Now with the latest record-breaking sale of 928 fresh in mind, we ask what you think is the most underrated movie car ever. We actually did this more than a decade ago, but it is far beyond the statute of limitations to redevelop old ideas on the Internet. Plus, it also means that there have been 10 years of movie cars we have not yet put down! Examples in recent films are appreciated but not mandatory.
Usually this is the part towards the end of the day’s question where the author gives their own answer to kick things off. Unfortunately, my breadth in film knowledge is terribly insufficient for this subject. Mention a beloved movie everyone has seen and there is a 95 percent chance I never have. It’s one of those traits about me that people don’t like the most; that’s also why i’m terribly awkward at small talk.
I happened to see The breakfast club recently for the first time. Although the cars in that movie do not appear for very long, they are nonetheless important because they book everything and are embedded in the first and last scenes the audience sees. I assume that to some extent they symbolize the characters’ personalities, because why would they not. The nerd coming out of the K car and the jock coming out of the Bronco II seem to confirm this remarkable obvious theory. Like I said, bad for movies! Anyway, what do you say? What’s running from movies deserve more love?
