There’s no overstating the fact that Netflix has lost a lot of prime movie options in the last few years. Beginning with 2011’s loss of Starz licenses and continuing with the May 2013 loss of large chunks of the Warner Bros., MGM, and Universal back catalog, no film genre has remained untouched. Sadly, this means a lot of core car fanatic must-see movies are not currently available for streaming on this service. While you won’t find the likes of Vanishing Point, Two-Lane Blacktop, Bullitt, Christine, or even any of the entries in the Fast and the Furious franchise on this list, it’s not because we don’t love them. Rather, it’s because you can’t stream them at this time.

The good news is, all is not lost. We’d like to think that losing all the obvious things that top everyone’s list of great car movies makes it easier to focus on the hidden gems that you may have previously overlooked -- or that you didn’t even known existed. If you think the most comfortable seat in your house is actually in your car, you should definitely check out The 15 Best Car Movies Streaming on Netflix Right Now.
