The Audi R8 Spyder is powered by the same 5.2-liter direct-injected V-10 as the coupe. It’s throaty roar that makes an argument that the Spyder provides a more thrilling driving experience than the coupe.

Coupe

The Lexus LFA feels right at home on the track. Its suspension soaks up the bumps well, and quickly hunkers back down waiting for the driver’s next command. Don’t look down at the speedometer because you’ll be surprised at how much speed this car can carry.

The Boxster S’ steering and handling are absolutely impeccable. The svelte look of the past gives way to a more muscular appearance. Inside, the new Boxster has an upscale feel.

To emphasize the seriousness of the Cayman R as a sports car, it comes standard without air conditioning or stereo system. Porsche engineers lowered the R’s ride height by 0.8 inches, and added custom anti-roll bar and stiffer springs.
