Anyone who doesn't vote for the Gallardo Spyder is a communist.

The obvious choice for lil' ol' communist me is the only car with a real roof. Lambo gets honorable mention.

Though I love the Lambo, I much prefer the Gallardo coupe, so the spyder starts out with that deficit already. Add in my porsche love, its hard top, and the fact that it's an amazing car, and you've got a 911 Turbo vote on your hands!

I dislike spyders so that eliminates everyone except the Porsche. Though it is nice, I am forced to ask the question: Why isn't the 997 GT3 on this list?

I voted for the Bentley. Just put the top down, crank up your favorite music, and cruise. It's just so chill. Not to mention it's gorgeous both inside and out.

The Porsche says, "Look I'm rich and I bought the same 911 as everybody else."

The Lamborghini says, "Look I'm really fuckin rich and bought the same Lamborghini as everybody else."

Lambo for me.

^wow...um...intellegent post

911 for me...guess I'm a Communist

I wonder why Porsche has avoided using paddles with its Tripronic transmission. I don't know if the buttons are easier to use, I would assume not. Maybe the DSG equipped 997 Turno coiming out in 2007 or 2008 will have paddles instead of buttons?

The Bentley... sorry, I don't have that much of a gut yet. I would enjoy it's comfort and refinement. But it's still giving in to old age now, isn't it?

The BMW... sorry, I didn't make my millions selling porn in So. Cal. You can just see the slime come off the guy driving it. It's not the driver, but the car that "slimes" you.

The Lambo... hmm, kinda girly, kinda flashy, but a heck of a lot of style and fun. When it's that fast the extra 0.2 seconds lost because you have a convertible doesn't matter. In fact, + to the convertible

The Porsche... definately the car for someone who wants a "driver's" car. All weather, all times, stately, beautiful, a work of art.

The Porsche or the Lambo... oh geez oh geez decisions. The Porche, for when the Lambo is just too much and you want to be understated.

A tough toss-up between the 911 and the Gallardo for me. I like them both for different reasons, but in the end i don't think i could resist the Lambo. Gallardo Spyder gets my vote, the 911 is a very close 2nd though.

Can't beleive that i've voted for the 911 Turbo as well, though i'd buy the Gallardo Spyder in a heart beat. I know the 911 Turbo is a superior performance car, and practical.

Turbo without question. My second choice would be the M6 though.
