The 24-105L is a fine general purpose lens. If you really want narrow DOF though just pick up a cheap 50/1.8 that you can throw on when you need it. You can get narrower DOF with a longer telephoto, but it may be difficult for you to get all of a car in the frame that way. The best (though much more expensive) option is to pick up a fast wide prime. Something like the 24 or 35L would be ideal, but these are $1K+ lenses. More reasonably the 35/2 is only a couple of hundred bucks and may work well for you.
