2014 Motor Trend Best Driver's Car

First here are the ten contenders in alphabetical order: Alfa Romeo 4C, BMW i8, BMW M4, Chevrolet Camaro Z/28, Ford Fiesta ST, Jaguar F-Type R Coupe, Nissan GT-R Nismo, Porsche 911 Turbo S, Subaru STI, and Volkswagen GTI. Something for everyone and for every budget¬ $25K up to $190K. Sadly, older cars are ineligible; otherwise the first-gen Mazda Miata would have embarrassed quite a few of the newbies. 

But how can a hatchback like the Ford Fiesta ST compete with a plug-in hybrid supercar like the BMW i8? That is because MT Best Driver's Car isn't simply about numbers. Instead, Best Driver's Car is all about determining which new car is the best to drive on both the road and track. 

Now your particular favorite sports car probably may not be on the list. First, we the list is limited to performance machines that are either new or significantly updated for 2014. The cars also have to be commercially available, that is why there is no 2015 Mustang, Corvette Z06, Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat, or Porsche GT3. Sometimes carmakers just say no. 

So sit back and enjoy the long video!
