Bike marques v Car marques, who would be who ?

My starter for 10:

1. Specialized would be Ferrari - Highly brand focused and often classic blood red.

2. GT would be Porsche - same design layout for decades and often silver smart.

3. Orange would be Aston Martin - British hand crafted design, often in silver/grey, P7 is DB7.

4. Kona would be Lamborghini - Outlandish names, funky but rapid.

5. Raleigh would be Jaguar - been around ages, often underrated but more affordable performance for the masses.

6. Pace would be TVR - hand crafted in low volumes, small British cottage industry firm desired by the locals.

7. Marin would be Ford - mainstream American that was around from near the start.

8. Pro-Flex would be Lotus - pioneered some great innovations but then went out of business. Often green red or yellow.

9. Intense would be Dodge Viper - some crazy beefy design good for going in straight lines only.

10. Klein would be Bugatti - great paint jobs, always bit oversized looking on the bodywork.

If you know how to convert this into a poll like the (why did you buy it, that be great)

Breezer would be Daimler-Benz - the first.
Sunn would be Alpine- French and inherently cool (in their prime, now a bit "generic")
Bontrager would be Citroën - different, technology/engineering driven and cool in the old days, but then sold out and corporate.
Trek would be Chevrolet.
AMP Research would be Laborghini - "Whoa" designs that we all wanted, but didn't work too well in the real world.

Brilliant, love all the French comparisons

Breezer def Daimler & Trek def Chevy, buying loads of other brands up. Scott maybe Dodge in comparison. Thought maybe AMP could be Mercedes, sharp engineering.

Easy:
- Ferrari would be Ferrari;
- Porsche would be Porsche;
- Audi would be Audi;
- Peugeot would be Peugeot;
- Renault would be Renault.

All the above brands have/had cars and bicycles in their catalogs 🤪 I'm probably missing a few...

True but bikes with their names on baired little resemblance to their cars. I certainly didnt hold the Porsche or Mercedes bikes in the same high regarded as their cars, I generally laughed at them. They just re branded other frames. Except maybe the carbon Lotus 110.

You can not be serious.

I could stretch at Generalized would be Fiat, but even that is an insult to the Italian car industry. Perhaps Kia fits better.
