This is Our Holiday Wish List

2014 Nissan GT-R

It has been another busy year at the AutoGuide office. Once again we have driven and evaluated hundreds of cars this year ranging from the Mitsubishi Mirage to the Dodge Ram to the Rolls Royce Ghost.

We love testing cars and will test anything we can get our hands on. However, every once in a while we come across a car that is something special; a car that separates itself from the over-populated crowd and wins over our automotive hearts.

These here are the top ten vehicles that stuck in our minds. They may not be the fastest or flashiest cars out there (though most of them are), but long after we had to return these press vehicles, we were still longing for just one more drive.

Final Bespoke Slant Nose Porsche 911


It’s the second day of AutoGuide’s Dream Car Garage list. This time News Editor Luke Vandezande compiled his list of the 10 cars, a word used loosely at points, that he would pick if money weren’t a factor.

Bespoke programs are wildly popular in the high-end car market, but this one-off from Porsche is probably one of the most interesting 911s to come from the Porsche factory.
