Different calibers' effectiveness against vehicles

Whenever the pros and cons of the different calibers are discussed, it is - naturally - mostly on penetration and stopping power. Yet, if I'm informed correctly, e.g. the .357 Magnum was introduced to LE (amongst other reasons, of course) to provide a better performance in stopping cars and being able to shoot through car doors. I suppose for LE and military that might still be an issue today. So does this kind of performance go right along with the general penetration performance of a caliber or do other parameters apply?
