This is a surprise as the journalists put the MP4-12C way down the list.

http://www.autoexpress.co.uk/carreviews/performance_car_of_the_year/274195/the_reader_vote.html

I test drove a Cayman R yesterday, 300 miles of fun, and it is a great Porsche - steering,engine, flappy gearbox and noise but it made me realise why I want the Mclaren.

But the Mac has - Steering, power delivery, lower seat and wide vision, vastly superior ride quality, design drama and surprisingly, roughly, the same fuel mpg.

However I could buy 4 Cayman S for the price of the Mac......but I only want one car.

Test ride a Cayman S, have brilliant fun and realise why you want a Mac.

For $85K, fully loaded, the R is hard to beat.

Gotta love being in a position to have both, and more (I'm dying to see the 991 TurboS and the Lambo Cabrera).

Yes, the general public chose it Number 1 because it looks bland, sounds terrible and they imagine it would be no fun to drive. :p

Your a funny man 6th. LOL

Well, one difference is that the public did not drive it while the journalists have.

There, there. I also drove it and agree with the public, so let's not get too excited ;).
Guess it's a good thing for McLaren that the average journalist salary can't front the full P Diddy.
