I can see the TL as a desirable car. I has more hp than either 3 series (not M), alomst as much as G35, way more than IS250/300, and for the guys, a very generous sized back seat.

I would post a picture depicting it but then it would belong in the PL with a NWS tag.

At least you can say "I own a Jaguar" If I woke up to my 16th birthday and found a TL in the driveway I'd just be like, "Mom. Dad. a Buick would have been cheaper"

I guess. I just don't see a teenager looking at say, a 330ci or G35 coupe and then saying; "Damn, I'm really going to need more room in the back for groceries..." :D

I was referring to a different reason than groceries as to why a guy would want a large back seat.

Hows that new 350 doing in that department? I guess mine is still new then.

This thread has successfully diverged into a not all ages safe thread. Maybe...

Oh my god two out of those top ten are in my family now - RX330 and G35 sedan. And they are most wanted ..... by TEENS? Well G35 coupe may be....RX330? I thought 330i, 350Z, RSX TYPE S, EVO, STI, RX-8, S2000, tC, A4, IS, Civic Si, MX-5, G35 coupe, Accord coupe, M3, 330Ci, SLK and stuff like that are teen-magnets. I have been so wrong. Nah........I think this list is BS.

2008 Lexus IS350 Obsidian/Black, premium, HIDs, 18" rims/tires, Navigon 2100 navigation system
2003 Infiniti G35 sedan(sold)

Well the TL has that DVD-Audio which some band used while recording their album, so it did get a lot of publicity in MTV and that could skew teens desires rather... uhmm... easily.
