The Porsche 911 R proved that plenty of people would like a GT3 without a rear wing the size of one you would expect on a “rice rocket”. Sure it is an asset on the track, but many potential GT3 owners will rarely, if ever, take their cars on a track. Some folks want the naturally aspirated performance without all the extra attention that a GT3 brings.

That’s quite a markup from a car that had an MSRP starting at $184,900. When you think of that it’s kind of like a tangible Bitcoin for people that ready have roughly $200,000 (or can at least get auto financing for that amount).

evo Choses Their Car of the Year; Highlighted by Porsche, Ferrari and Mercedes

The end of this year is fast approaching and we are coming to the time of year when publications begin choosing their car of the year. evo Magazine is one of the first to give out the award this year and they had some great cars to choose from.

The nominees for Car of the Year are the Aston Martin V12 Vantage S, Audi R8 V10 Plus, Mercedes SLS Black Edition, Porsche 911 GT3, Alfa Romeo 4C, Ferrari F12 Berlinetta, Porsche Cayman S and the Mini JCW GP. Not a bad list of cars and most of us would be happy with anyone of them. A few of the choices are more attainable, but all have the potential to be the top car (well except for one Italian car, but watch the video for more on that).

The below videos show all of the cars that were in the running and announces the winner. While all are good cars the heavy weights in the competition are the Ferrari F12 Berlinetta, Porsche 911 GT3 and the Mercedes SLS Black Edition (ironically in yellow and not black).

Check out both videos to find out who is the winner and then let us know what you think of it in the comments.
