Group 2 was tied with Where Eagles Dare and Star Wars on 8 points apiece.

And the best performance car is.. Surprise surprise the Porsche Cayman GTS :yawn:
4 of the 10 reviewers voted the 4C in their Top 3 performance cars.
Deon Joubert voted it his 2nd best after the M3. He wrote 'On a perfect mountain pass, its sublime. At other times, its punishing'
Saw the highlights video..

"My arms are a little sore this morning as I had to hold on tight because it tramlines and sniffs out every camber and pothole and imperfection in the road" :cheese:
"This thing as as nervous as a Jack Russel in a Colombian Airport" :lol:
