I still don't quite understand how a car that only a handful of people own currently can get awards. Surely after its been out a year and all the good (and bad) stuff has come to light is the best time to judge a car.

I get the feeling that the C7 'Vette will win it all. How is the 4 series even on here? People literally just started receiving it?

Hmm, not sure if I believe the list. There's no Porsches on either lists.

Actually think the X5 has a better chance than the 4-series.

Everyone knows they are going to pick the Vette.

I've never been a fan of corvettes, since the Stingray. They're cheaply made and have terrible interiors. BUT - this new one is pretty sick looking. I think the Vette will win

No different than the Stingray. They just started being shipped from the factory a few weeks ago. The Chevy dealership in Warner Robins just got it's first one last week

How can you not be a fan of the baddest sports car in North America?!? I'm partial since I've gone through 3 of them in the past 2 years before I got the 335. I actually miss my '12 GrandSport

Maybe the 4-series would have a chance if it had an all new powerplant.

This is definitely a deserved win for the vette. The 4 is nice but I find myself more intrigued with the x5, then again haven't seen the f15 yet.

12 is not a short list. Then again, these winners are picked in smoke filled rooms with plenty of activity beneath the table. Lol
