At the risk of being a nay sayer, the Porsche Boxter will take both categories. it really that good.

You mean massive body roll, a steering system that is not connected to the front wheels, and the engine note played through the speaker system?!?!?!?!

How did BMW get two cars in the performance group, and not one in the COTY group?

The M135 should win. It's hard to be as good as that car is at that price. One'd be shocked if the Porsches, Astons, and the like weren't really good performance cars. But one is far more pleasantly shocked at how good the M135 is, to say nothing of it being a car you can drive every day, as well as insure and repair at sensible prices.

btw, I definitely agree about the M135i deserving the award more than the M6.
