Name that Eco Car! Quiz: identify these aerodynamic production cars

[SPOILER ALERT: don't read past post #1 in this thread, or you may see people giving away quiz answers below.]

Added: another quiz to EcoModder's...



... series.

Test your car recognition skills & see if you can beat the average score.

Third quiz in the series: identify these (relatively) slippery production cars with drag coefficients of 0.28 or better. A somewhat international selection of vehicles from past and present makes up this quiz.

Start here: Name That Eco Car! Choose a quiz - EcoModder.com

(More quizzes coming in the future, like a diesel quiz, hyperefficient concept cars... etc.)

I missed the Camry, the latest Prius, latest Insight and the Lexus. Got all the other lesser known correct, go figure!

EDIT: Sorry, didn't think about it when I reported the bug. In the future feel free to edit my posts!

Thanks for the bug report. Fixed! I was madly fixing bugs as you were all taking it. (Did you see any PHP errors? I think I might have crashed Kitai's browser at one point :P)

I got 100%! But I can't tell the Hyundai from a Lexus. I didn't even know about that Hyundai until I started researching. I'm sure I would have gotten those wrong if I hadn't compiled the freaking thing.

Any glaring omissions? Mostly I was working from the Wikipedia list, but also double-checking numbers because it's incomplete, and some are wrong (or debatable).

The Insight2 and Prius3 images were a little harder than usual.

The Insight because it was a slightly weird angle.

I purposely cropped the Prius3 to make it a little bit more of a challenge - less detail.

Hi,

I got 100% on the hybrid cars and 84% on the electric -- and I missed the @!#%#@$ Tesla! How did I do that?

On this aero cars quiz, I got 76% - slightly better than average. I missed the last Lexus -- which naturally was my *other* choice...

The prius 3 is easy to identify because of its funky front quarter panels that have a spike in the headlight.
