Did not fare well but consideriing the price of it's competition, maybe not so bad. The Boxster S winning was no surprise however, costing 20 grand more then the Z it is almost unfair. Would be like comparing the Z to any car that cost 20 grand less.

Sorry, I did not and have not seen it. Since it was in the June issue I did not think it had been posted on. Anyhow, the opinion on the Z was subjective based on the looks and sound. Still don't see how it came in behind the BMW Z4 or the Audi even based on the article itself.

This made me mad. They lost me when they called the look of the 370z convertible hideous. Obviously they are on drugs and definite euro snobs.

Their statement was certainly a bit ridiculous. The Z conv. may not be to everyone's taste, but it is not hideous by any means. It's got a unique look, just like the Z4 and TT conv. Are they hideous? I don't think so. Maybe 'avant-garde styling' would have been a better choice.

I spotted a white Roadster tonight in a parking lot & felt I just had to park near it. Pretty cool how a car can demand that you go closer to it for a better look. . . what a beautiful car: the 370z Roadster
