Performance Car

Both nominees proved to be a tough choice for our Editorial team. We loved the Z4 for its explosive performance off the line. Though not an easy car to handle in a fast corner, we relished the challenge of driving it and how it makes you feel like David (and Goliath) every time you step out of it.

The Cayman is the opposite. Its perfect 50:50 weight distribution makes it a very forgiving car to drive fast. From the driving position to the input controls, every aspect of this small sports car is perfect. Definitely a car that deserves its place in our Car of the Year awards.
