I always thought the Cortina looked very much different from the 12 M. But in all fairness to you, I must admit that on these pictures, they actually do look a bit alike.
The Cortina MK 1 was a great looking car, and the racing pedigree of the LOTUS Cortina and its 1600 Twin cam engine helped the MK 1 become very cool.
The 12 M, on the other hand, I’ve always seen as being owned by retired midwifes and old headmistresses. Can’t remember ever seeing a 12 M in any other color, than the one on the photograph.
I am not too sure, about the bit you write about the MK 1 being on a “car porn page”, though.
For me, at the very least it would have to be the LOTUS Cortina, then.
(as a group 2 race homologation the Lotus Cortina only came in the 2-door version, always in white color, with a green stripe, going from the arrow shape on the front wing around the rear lights, all the way to the other side).
