Corvette Cited as One of “Ten Best Automobiles Going”

"Fifty-four years post-partum and the Corvette’s just hitting its stride. You’ll be hard-pressed to find a better combination of style, performance, handling and (yes) reliability for anything near the price. The endlessly rejuvenated Corvette shows what American automakers can do when the bean-counters take a back seat to engineering excellence."

So writes the scribe at The Truth About Cars, Frank Williams, in a recent piece, as he reported that the readers of the blog voted overwhelmingly positive about our favorite iconic sports car.

The Ten Best Automobiles Going list was culled from votes offered up on a hundred different marques.  The top ten are:

1. BMW 3-Series

2. Chevy Corvette / Z06

3. Porsche 911

4. Mazda Mazda3 / Mazdaspeed3

5. Subaru WRX / STI

6. Mazda MX-5

7. Porsche Cayman S

8. Acura TSX

9. Infiniti G35

10. Audi RS-4

As has been noted elsewhere, I’m not sure why Porsche gets listed twice.

    Re: your comment about the Porsche – the 911 and the Cayman S are vastly different cars. The Cayman is a coupe based on the 2-seat Boxster which itself is a relative newcomer to the Porsche lineup. The Boxster/Cayman is the least expensive Porsche. The 911 has been around for decades, getting more and more sophisticated all the time — and more expensive too!

    That’s a fair analysis. The two Corvette and two Mazda products do not have as much product differentiation. Well said!
