Top 10 Sexiest Cars of the Houston Auto Show (with Photos)
Base Price: $30,990
You might be asking how your grandpa's car could ever be considered sexy. But this one may surprise you. This new, redesigned Avalon fights against its reputation as the "Japanese Buick" with dynamic, sweeping lines that make the car look much more upscale than it is. And it's available in a hybrid model as well if the green appeal strikes your fancy.
This Camaro sits in the corner of the Chevy stand directly opposite its rival the Ford Mustang, waging the age-old muscle car war between Chevy and Ford. But this particular Camaro takes this round in a knockout. The ZL-1 model's 580-horsepower, supercharged V-8 engine takes the Camaro to another level. In red with black wheels, this convertible model looks long, low, wide and mean like a hammerhead shark.
Ford puts an Aston Martin-inspired grille onto the Fusion and suddenly the boring family sedan is elevated to new styling heights. Think of it as the anti-Camry. The 2013 Fusion has garnered rave reviews from critics and is available with a wide range of turbocharged, hybrid, and even plug-in hybrid powertrains.
Here's one recent debut that made its way to Houston from Detroit. Lexus's answer to the quintessential sports sedan (the BMW 3-series) is completely redesigned for 2014. This new IS looks anything but boring, celebrating its Japanese heritage with styling that looks like it was designed with a samurai sword, especially at the rear with the sharply carved taillights.
Although everyone knows Porsche for the 911, their mid-engined small roadster, the Boxster, is nothing to sneeze at. Even though it is the cheapest Porsche, your friends and neighbors will never know. Best styling detail: the rear spoiler that is integrated into the curve of the taillights.
