I voted for one of the last manual transmission Lamborghinis. Normally, I'm not an extrovert, but today is an exception. SV for me.

Had to be the Evora for me.

Evora. And I still think the S4 should have been in this category, considering its 2-door counterpart is.

I went with the other Lamborghini strictly because I think it's better looking than the SV.

My god, this is tough. I'll have to come back to this one...

Such a fucking awesome list of cars...there isn't a bad one in this bunch. I went for the Boxster Spyder...money no object I would've gone for the LP670-4, but the Boxster Spyder offers GT3 RS-esque character and performance for M3 money, which is brilliant. I adore the lightweight, back to basics concept, and I think it looks hot as hell to boot.

Balboni, only cause "all of the above" was not an option.

Like Clark said, a truly great list of cars. So difficult to choose. If the SV wasn't almost half a million dollars it would be the clear winner, but it's just way too damned expensive.

Boxster Spyder, its my favorite new car, hands down. It's like Porsche asked me personally what I want in a Boxster.

Now to find $60,000.
Aircooled
Nearly all awesome cars. Decided to go with the lightest one.
Dr. Strangelove
I went with the Hyundai. Enthusiasts have been screaming for this car for years, and it is a home run IMHO.
Bjorn
^Hyundai was my second choice. I love the G-coupe to death, but as a fan of the 914 GT, 924 Carrera GT and 968 CS, the Spyder is the car I have been waiting my entire adult life to make.

I will own one someday.

Hyundai can't compete with that.

I thought about this one for a while and came to the conclusion that a Lambo with a big outrageous wing is cooler than anything else. Therefore the SV wins.

I voted for the Gallardo, wanted to vote for Boxer cuz they finally did it right.
