2011 Porsche Cayman R

We might be heading into the dead of winter, but that doesn't mean it's too early to start looking for a racy rear-wheel driver to cruise around in next summer. The 2011 Porsche Cayman R ($66,000 and up) certainly fits the bill, with a 3.4L, mid-mounted six-cylinder producing 330 hp, a standard manual six-speed to get you to 60 mph in just five seconds -- replaceable with a seven speed Porsche Doppelkupplungsgetriebe (couldn't make that up) and Sport Chrono package that does the job in 4.7 seconds -- a top speed of 175 mph, lightweight 19-inch wheels, a lowered body, black-framed headlights, black exterior mirrors and "PORSCHE" lettering on the side, anti-roll bars, alcantara and leather upholstery, unique strap door handles, and a center console that matches the exterior paint. In other words, it's everything your bad weather beater isn't.

  • 2012 Ford Mustang Boss 302

    More than 40 years after its debut, the Boss is back. The 2012 Ford Mustang Boss 302 ($TBA) pays homage to the classic '69 model with its signature C-stripe, centered Pony tri-bar badge on the grille, and unique badging, but brings it up to date with modern components like a 440-horsepower Hi-Po 302 4V Ti-VCT V8 engine, adjustable front and rear shocks, quad exhausts, Brembo brakes, and an optional Laguna Seca package that removes the rear seat to add a stabilizer brace, adds a performance-oriented tri-gauge package to the top of the dash, and includes a front air splitter that isn't exactly street legal — and Ford's site dedicated to the beast isn't shy about reminding you.

  • 2011 Ferrari SA Aperta

    Another auto show, another awesome Ferrari that hardly anyone will ever get to drive. The 2011 Ferrari SA Aperta ($TBA) is a super-sexy drop-top version of the company's 599 GTB Fiorano, named for legendary designers Sergio and Andrea Pininfarina, and sporting a front-engine V12, virtually no ground clearance, integrated roll-bars, a very light soft top meant for emergency use only, and stiffness and weight similar to that of the hard-top version thanks to some fancy engineering. Unfortunately, only 80 are being made, and all 80 have already been sold.
