You will be able to find ontologies on many domains in the OntoSelect 
ontology library ( Related to your query 
on 'car' I found for instance the following one:

OntoSelect provides several options for ontology search. Ontologies can 
be searched by ontology title or by topic. In the case of topic search 
you can either specify a URL for a web document that represents the 
topic of the ontology that you are searching for or you can give the 
topic itself which is then linked to a corresponding Wikipedia page that 
will be used for your search.

Please note: In ontology title search only the keyword(s) that you give 
will be used for your search. In topic search a 
linguistically/statistically derived set of most relevant keywords will 
be extracted automatically and used for your search. In both cases you 
can restrict your search to the ontology format (DAML, OWL, RDFS) and/or 
language of the class/property labels that you prefer.

- Class, Property, (Multilingual) Label Search

You can also search for individual classes, properties or class/property 
labels. In label search you can additionally specify the language of the 
label that you prefer. In property search you can also define the type 
of the property.

- Ontology Publishing

Publish your ontology on OntoSelect by using the submit option. 
Submitted ontologies will be analysed and extracted information will be 
integrated in the next regular update of the OntoSelect database.

- Statistics

We keep track of a number of statistics: most active web domains, 
languages used, formats used, etc.

OntoSelect is brought to you by the Competence Center Semantic Web at 
DFKI, the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence.
