I’d think Citroen Ami would wipe the floor with all these cars. Jaw dropping for all the wrong reasons:)

A Lexus is more eye catching than a F40? Come on.
It's definitely eye-catching. My wife always mentions it when we see one on the road. It's very striking. Maybe not F40 striking, but, I can see it.

As for Taycan... definitely a huge contributing factor to my purchase decision.

Um...
We all already knew this.
I had an older couple in a beater of a car drive by with both mouths agape and the women hit the curb because she couldn't break her attention from my car.🤦‍♂️

honestly I don't know what to think....number 2 on the list is the Model 3.

Was this done using beer goggles?

wait a min...in the overall catagory, the Model 3 comes in better looking than the R8, AMG GT, and McLaren 720...

Staring can be a good thing or a bad thing. I think it can go either way with the cars on this list. Same can be said for color choices too….

The fact that there's even a table ranking cars by how "eye catching" they are in a piece probably speaks to the level of automotive journalism going on here.

Model 3 is pretty hideous.

BMW dropped the ball not doing further development on that i8. They were ahead of their time like Porsche is ahead of their time with the design language on the Taycan

When 5-6 year old kids draw a car it always looks like a Tesla. It's just a mass product. You can't have high expectations.

Their ranking method is partially explained, the time it takes people to fixate on the car and the time people take looking at the car before getting bored and moving on. They seem to weight the initial fixation time higher than linger time.

The model 3 was ranked high because the eye was drawn to it quickly, the Taycan was ranked high because the eye lingered on it, 5.63 seconds, the longest of any vehicle in those tables.

Fixation time in particular is subject to confounding factors, they didn't explain what else was in the field of view of participants. If it was the images in the article, then the Model 3 was shown in front of a dimly lit hedge, the car is the only thing interesting in that image the eye is drawn to it immediately. Compared to the image of the Taycan which shows a brightly lit field with tree line in the background and a rather interesting bank of clouds. Without knowing details of how the images were presented the time to fixation value is perhaps questionable.

I've only recently started to see another Taycan driving in my area... and every time it certainly catches my eye. Validating at least 32 others (plus most on this forum) would agree!

Can't wait for my Taycan to catch the eyes of others (later this year hopefully)!
