Jalopnik: Twelve Ridiculous Athlete Car Poses [Car Stars]

Recommended Posts

Like other celebrities, athletes and cars are both appreciated for the their stats, yet the combination of the two doesn't necessarily guarantee a great photo op. Don't believe us? Just check out these ridiculous athletes posing with cars below.

Most of these, not surprisingly, come from basketball and soccer players. If you have any great/awful athlete car poses please drop them in the comments below.

504x_12_Athletes_Agassi_2.jpgAthlete: Andre Agassi
Car: Porsche 911
Why It's Embarrassing: At some point Agassi was convinced to pose with his cars and girlfriend. The Vector from the other post is fairly ridiculous, but there's something about him sitting parade marshal-style in the Porsche that make us giggle.

504x_12_Athletes_Shaq_RR.jpgAthlete: Shaq
Car: Rolls Royce Phantom
Why It's Embarrassing: Because Shaq doesn't take himself too seriously and has apparently never turned down a photo request, we could probably make an entire list out of Shaq poses. We didn't include this one or this one. Technically, he looks ridiculous, but we love him for it.

504x_12_Athletes_Vernon.jpgAthlete: Vernon Wells
Car: Honda Legend (JDM)
Why It's Embarrassing: Unfortunately, you probably can't take that novelty key with you because that Honda/Acura isn't coming with you. Fortunately, you look like you're completely bummed about getting a Honda anyways.

504x_12_Athletes_Dirk.jpgAthlete: Dirk Nowitzki
Car: Silver Comet
Why It's Embarrassing: Dirk Nowitzki is giant. Seriously, he could eat the Silver Comet. What do both of these things have in common? Both fall apart in the big game.

504x_12_Athletes_Mahalino.jpgAthlete: Marcelinho
Car: Volkswagen Touareg
Why It's Embarrassing: If you listen really closely you can hear the ocean.

504x_12_Athletes_Spudd.jpgAthlete: Spud Webb
Car: Kia Borrego
Why It's Embarrassing: Why did Kia choose Spud to hang around when they announced their sponsorship of the NBA? Because they needed an NBA player small enough to make a Kia look big and Muggsy Bogues is retired.

504x_12_Athletes_Kobe.jpgAthlete: Kobe Bryant
Car: Rolls Royce Corniche Convertible
Why It's Embarrassing:Although he wasn't asked, Kobe repeatedly insisted he could win the title without Minnie.

504x_12_Athletes_Rooney.jpgAthlete: Wayne Rooney
Car: Toyota Prius
Why It's Embarrassing: It's Wayne Rooney. The man is ridiculous

504x_12_Athletes_Magic.jpgAthlete: Magic Johnson
Car: Ford Escape Hybrid
Why It's Embarrassing: Magic Johnson, failed late night host and inarticulate commentator, explains how hybrids work and thereby makes himself look sillier than a felt frog with a man's hand up his butt.

504x_12_Athletes_Holyfield.jpgAthlete: Evander Holyfield
Car: Buick Riviera Concept
Why It's Embarrassing: Careful, Evander. That door could come down and take a chunk out of your ear.

504x_12_Athletes_Tiger.jpgAthlete: Tiger Woods
Car: Buick Enclave
Why It's Embarrassing: Buick paid Tiger Woods untold millions to be the brand's spokesman, but even with all that money he can't pretend to be excited about the awkward-looking Enclave.

504x_12_Athletes_Shaq_LTC.jpgAthlete: Shaq
Car: Lincoln Town Car Cartier L
Why It's Embarrassing: See the carpet on the ground? This is how Shaq gets around his living room.

GMTG74, you have made me a very happy man.

To show my gratitude, I found this for you. I don't know if you read about it already, but if you did, let me know and I'll try to dig something else neat up.


"A 1989 prototype (on a 1991 S-10 frame) for what would become the ‘94 Sonoma. All body panels and the bed were made of molded composite materials."

YJ, if that picture made you happy, then you might want to check out the NSFW picture of Anna in the latest thread of the R-rated section (hint, see post #4). That should make you very happy :AH-HA_wink:

Thanks for posting the picture & link. '94 GMC Sedona, huh! Never heard of or saw that one. Thanks!!

Factorial states that this sentiment is true and has been held over the last 138 years till now. Investing in solid-state battery R&D over the last 6 years has allowed Factorial to create their proprietary FEST (Factorial Electrolyte System Technology). Factorial held their

    Mazda unveils the Iconic SP concept

    At the 2023 Tokyo auto show, Mazda unveiled a sports car concept. Originally named Vision Study Model, the Iconic SP, utilizes an interesting engine combination. This hybrid-rotary-powered sports car uses the twin-rotor rotary engine as a generator to recharge the batteries. Iconic SP is around 10 inches longer than Mazda’s compact Miata. Although Mazda hasn't disclosed the number of electric motors, they are the main propulsion system. As a range-extending EV, that rotary engine doesn’t dr
