One of the cool parts about being an automotive journalist is that I get to drive a lot of cool cars throughout the year. While I don’t get to sample every new car hitting the streets, I do get a chance to drive some good ones. It should be noted that I really didn’t drive anything terrible this year, which is always a plus, but there are a few that stand out in my memory of being quite enjoyable. Here are the top five cars I feel I’ve driven this year. #3: Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Convertible
The Corvette Stingray, especially in convertible form, is nearly the perfect car for us. The 460 horsepower is faster than you think it’d be on paper, and the optional MagneRide magnetorheological ride control dampers make the car livable everyday, plus dominate on the track.
It’s a heck of a value compared to the Porsche 911 or other sports cars, but still isn’t the cheapest car in the world. Though, if we could, we would.
