Summer is almost officially upon us and that means cars shows. Sure, there are plenty of Cars and Coffee events that you can see great cars, but the competition car shows are now well underway.

For us the car show season starts with the Cruisin’ Morro Bay Car Show. Of course if we were on the east coast Amelia Island is the show that starts things off, but that is all the way on the other side of the country. For us it starts in Morro Bay and all the car shows lead to the “grand daddy” of them all, the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance.

Just the thought of putting a Chevy V8 in a Porsche is enough to make any purist sick. For most of us a Porsche just isn’t a Porsche without an engine from the German performance car maker (or at least from VW / Audi).

The Porsche 944 Turbo is already a pretty fast car. Especially, when you consider the time period that the 944 Turbo was produced.

It is that time of year, when we choose our Performance Car of the Year. This year we will have three categories and then an overall winner. The categories are American Performance Car of the Year, European Performance Car of the Year and Asian Performance Car of the Year. The winners of each category will then be pitted head to head for the overall Performance Car of the Year award.

First off we will give you the options for the American Performance Car of the Year. Read over the options and then let us know which one you would choose in the comments. Your comments will be read and taken into account for the car that will win the prize in each category.

Corvette Z06

The Corvette Z06 offers 650 horsepower and can rocket from 0-60 mph in just 2.9 seconds. It is definitely the most car you can get for the money.

Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat

All we need to say about the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat is 707 horsepower! The car has a large enough back seat to comfortably sit two adults, so you can scare three of your friends with its power.

Chevrolet Camaro Z/28

The Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 is a track ready machine. It has 505 horsepower and provides a refreshing analog driving experience. It is so good that multiple publications are actually comparing it to the Porsche 911 GT3.

Ford Shelby Mustang GT350

The Shelby Mustang GT350 made its debut not very long ago and yet it may very well be the car of the year. It will offer over 500 horsepower and looks track ready with its advanced suspension (something we could never say about a Mustang until this generation).

Your Turn

Now that you know the candidates scroll down and let us know which of these American performance cars you would choose in the comments.
