Cars That Shouldn’t Have Ski Racks, But We’re Glad They Do


Ski racks, and vehicles generally used to attack the slopes, are usually thought to be vans, SUVs, or even a sedan. Far too infrequently, it must be said, are sports cars relied upon to ferry skiers to snowy peaks.

What inspired all this? A Swedish pro skier named Jon Olsson, who drives a Murcielago 670-4 SV year-round. With a ski rack on it. He is also sponsored by Red Bull, J. Lindeberg, and a bank, among others. You kind of have to hate him for taking all the cool and leaving us keyboard jockeys with none, but at the same time you just want to be him.

The ski-rack-on-sports-car collection is below for your Friday afternoon enjoyment.

I like the snowboard, I like the 964, but the chrome wheel and the oddly snow-free background are confusing.

The original Ski Car For The People.

Not quite Jon Olsson cool, but not far off either.

“Ski rack” and “Fuchs wheels” should be in more sentences together.

The Porsche 356 was designed from day one for skis, and no one thought much of it. Those were simpler times.

The skis might throw off the Lotus Evora’s perfect handling balance, but it’s still completely awesome.

From a newer Lotus to an older one: Roger Moore and his Lotus Esprit.

Have a great weekend everyone!
