Porsche 928261 points
Porsche put at work all its resources to conceive and develop an outstanding car likely to replace the technically decaying 911. The obsolete points of the veteran were overcome with a front engine, water cooling, noise suppression, good weight balance and a road attitude that made fast driving much easier and more predictable. The aluminum 4.5 liter V8 was also smooth, torquey and fuel efficient. A deserving award winner, the fine looking 928 would eventually fail in the role of succeeding a myth.
