Shouldn't the Sky be tied with the Solstice? No Civic Si is sort of surprising since the Cobalt is on there, but I guess it shows how good the new SS really is.

I can hear the fanboys raging over the fact that the Cobalt beat out the BMW 1-Series.

I'm glad to see a core brand like Pontiac represented when they considered a Kappa car, instead of a failed brand, like Saturn. Good to see Cobalt SS at the top.

I am gonna get this mag for this article. Good to see GM with 3 models in. Screw the Saturn Sky, they should never have gotten that car in the first place. It proves Pontiac isn't all boring and has SOME serious performance.

Not a car on the list I wouldn't love to own.

Well I don't like the tacky Nismo crap on the clean 3 fiddy Z. I'd love to have a regular version, however, and the whole list is cool.

Yes, the 350Z looks so much better without the tacked on blorch. I read the article, the 135 was absurdly over-the-top overpriced, IMHO, though, at $41k..
