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.

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 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.

Without a doubt, the Gran Coupe is a striking, sexy “coupe.” But I, unlike the competition, just wish it cost less.

On paper, the new Sonata Turbo makes a compelling case for never needing a V-6. It produces more power and torque than most 3.5-liter midsize sedans, all while delivering fuel economy on par with many naturally aspirated 2.0-liter subcompacts.
