TTAC's Ten Best Shortlist
October 11th, 2012 12:11 PM Share
Similar to the TWAT s, we are seeking to nominate the 10 Best cars on sale today. The nominees are selected exclusively be our readership, just like the TWATs. During the nomination process, we recieved nominations for different models of the same vehicle line (i.e. Corvette 427 and Corvette ZR1, Mustang and Shelby GT500). For the purposes of our contest, these will only count as a single model. If you want to vote for the Ford Focus ST or the Boss 302, you will be voting for the Focus or the Mustang. Voting will be announced shortly. The whole list is below.
Mitsubishi Evo X
Volkswagen GTI/Golf R
BMW M3 (N.B. this is a different platform, so I will allow it to be seperate)
Ford Focus ST
Hyundai Veloster Turbo
Toyobaru Twins (Also an exception for obvious reasons)
Jeep Grand Cherokee
Ford F-Series/SVT Raptor
Hyundai Santa Fe
Fiat 500 Abarth
Ford Shelby GT500
Toyota Prius C
Volkswagen Jetta TDI Wagon
Cadillac CTS-V Wagon

Hold the phone there a minute.Hasn't anyone noticed that the acronym for the ten best cars ain't nowhere near as catchy as the acronym for the ten worst cars?
Wow, no Mercedes, no Infinity, no Lexus, no Acura and only one Audi and one Porsche. This concept of "Best", I do not think it means what you think it means. Or, to put it a different way, I will be making fun of this list on many websites for years to come.
Why not name the Mercedes, Infinity, Lexus or Acura you think merits mention as well as the Audis or Porsches that should be added. The one thing that stands out for me in this list is that it contains few stupidly expensive cars. Nice to see a list where people are not arguing over fantasy cars they could never afford and have never driven.
Ford Escape - oh please, just looks don't make it best Dodge Dart - a car with Italian job... Volkswagen Jetta - German de-engineering Jeep Grand Cherokee - did they ever ran good Dodge Charger - what a drek Chevrolet Volt - obama cocktail Subaru Outback - did you actually drove this Ford C-Max - oh, no Chevrolet Sonic - sorry state of american car Fiat 500 Abarth - again, Italian is oxymoron to best, unless it is fashion Chevrolet Impala - impala? Toyota Prius - not sure what is the sense of this car, it saves in one place but spends in many others Toyota Prius C - here we go again. This is not eve Prius
