Cmon Will, that's not an accurate 'eye test'. The real test should be to compare the car model - ANY car model - to other car models or even other girls their age.
There's a big difference between comparing, say a 40 year old woman with 2-3 kids to a 20 year old 'car model'. It's like saying 'look at the Elise - now go compare it with your neighbors '98 Camry - which looks better'.
So, if we judge based on THOSE metrics, I still say 'not hot'.
And we may be 'harsh', but if you pose for those 'hey look at my cooter' pics (which you KNOW will wind up on the interwebz on dude-dominated car forums), you open yourself up (pun intended) to the 'scrutiny'.
The original model just didn't do it for me. Seemed out of shape and frankly, just not that pretty. Short and stumpy and looked like a Jersey Shore cast member. The model posted with the yellow Elise was about 1000x prettier and more 'model-like' - tall, slender and classically pretty and considerably more subdued. I guess that's just me - I tend to find most of the 'car model hootchies' to be busted. Now the car show models - ala Chicago, Paris, Geneva - are usually stunning. Big difference (it's 'Bond Girl vs. Jersey Shore Girl'):
