Coupe

The Aventador is far and away the best-driving 12-cylinder Lambo to date. Given its scintillating stats, it begins to look less rip-off Vette and more bargain Bugatti, a car that costs roughly $2 million yet is barely quicker.

Longer, lighter, quicker, roomier, and more fuel-efficient than its predecessor, the 2012 Porsche 911 Carrera S is an evolutionary masterpiece of speed, style, and technology. The S gets to carry the mantle as the one — the greatest all-around 911 ever.

Given the 2011 Porsche Cayenne Turbo’s breathtaking abilities on both the racetrack and the dirt track, it’s a price that will have 911 Turbo owners convincing themselves, “Maybe it’s time for me to move into an SUV.”

The BRZ is undeniably superb. For the money, its straight-line quickness, fuel economy, chassis response, and aesthetically pleasing cabin make Subaru’s most creative creation a force to be reckoned with.

The new Mustang V-6 can sprint with musclecars, zigzag with sports cars, and drink with economy cars. The best of all worlds? You could say that.

While we’re excited to discover whether the 2010 Subaru Legacy 2.5GT is a grownup WRX, we’re hesitant too, as this may require our youthful staff to, um, grow up.

For making owners of European and Japanese luxury sedans feel foolish, the 5.0-liter Equus is the ultimate embarrassment tool. It has a look all its own and delivers a composed, compliant ride befitting a top-tier luxury sedan.

The Porsche Cayenne S Hybrid delivers a combined output of 380 horsepower and 427 pound-feet of torque. Fuel economy should reside somewhere in the neighborhood of 22/25, impressive for a 4950-pound rig that can scoot from 0 to 60 in an estimated 6.1 seconds.

The new supercharged V-6 whips the S4 from 0 to 62 mph in just 5.1 sec, according to Audi, or about the same time it takes the current, 340-hp V-8 S4.

The new GS represents advancements in refinement, performance, fuel economy, technology, and luxury. Yet, with a standard V-6 that puts out mid-class power, a behind-the-curve six-speed, and a front end that some will deem scary, the GS is a sizeable step forward, not a huge leap.

We were told to expect a base price of around $60,000 for the 2012 Audi A7. For that kind of money, we can’t think of another car that so exquisitely blends luxury, performance, beauty, technology, and utility.
