Default 928 Named One of the Top 10 Porsches Ever Made

https://www.hotcars.com/top-porsche-best-ever-ranked/

I've never heard of Hotcars, but hey they have good taste in top ten lists. And maybe I haven't spent enough time around all things 928, but that was the first time I heard our cars were nicknamed "The Egg"?

Lots wrong with that...
The 928 is an incredibly built car that offers reliability and speed to anyone who pilots it. Nicknamed "The Egg" for its oval-like shape, the 928 has the classic '80s style pop-up headlights. And, since it was the '80s after all, Porsche decided a good engine mix would be an immense 5.7-liter V8 slapped into it. This would be the last time Porsche made a decision like this for a while and the 928 became special as a result.
Clarkson praised it many years before that show.

More wrong than right. The car was a 70s design. And the Cayenne came out in 03. 8 years after the 928 run ended. Not sure that's a 'long time', especially considering design lead times.

Most of the other cars are just as bad. Porsche never sold a road-legal 917. There were two (I think) that were made to be, but that's it.

The 911 was not a 'mid-engined' car and the design wasn't 'revolutionary'.

^^^TBH I only started to read the 928 section, then quit after a few glaring errors.
