The bunny wranglers over at Playboy are no strangers to fine automobiles, as high-end exotics often grace the glossy pages of America's favorite gentleman's magazine. The Playboy empire even goes racing, sponsoring no fewer than six cars in the Grand American Rolex Sports Car Series and the Grand-Am Cup Series. So when the magazine wants to throw its own COTY list into the mix, despite the fact that we're utterly sick of COTY lists, we'll give it a glance. Rather than your boring old categories of Best Sports Coupe and Best SUV, Playboy also threw a few extra categories in that aren't your typical COTY fare, like Best Cross-Dresser and the Al Gore Special. The overall winner and Playboy's 2007 Car of the Year is the BMW Z4M Coupe. You can check out all the winners below. We hope we didn't spoil it for you, because we know you read Playboy for the articles.
  • BEST TWO-WAY PLAYER: VW Eos
  • BEST SPORTS COUPE: Porsche 911 Turbo
  • BEST SUV: Cadillac Escalade
  • BEST BANG FOR YOUR BUCK: Ford Shelby GT500
  • BEST PICKUP: 2007 Toyota Tundra
  • BEST ROADSTER: Saturn Sky Red Line
  • BEST CROSS-DRESSER: Mazda CX-7
  • THE AL GORE SPECIAL: Lexus GS 450h
  • PLAYBOY'S 2007 CAR OF THE YEAR: BMW Z4M Coupe

      I read this and expected the worst -- kind of like reading what Consumer Reports has to say. But they did a really nice job of choosing the vehicles I thought.

      Just like the Playboy Advisor -- it is uncanny, they are NEVER wrong.

      Never mention japanese car as a sexiest car. Dumbest thing I've heard all day.

      That photo reminds me of what my mom used to say,"There's no fool like an old fool".

      Hef and this organization is a joke...just like this list. Stick to spreak porn propoganda and not your idiotic ideas about automobiles.

      "Maybe Motortrend was right to choose the Ridgeline since at least it's comfortable to drive, gets somewhat decent gas mileage and has Honda Reliability engrained in it's DNA,"


      Wow, RJ- it's not any more comfortable to drive, it's mileage is NOT as good as the mainstream trucks and as for reliable-well all the pickups are rocksolid-with the exception of Nissan.

      The Ridgelines don't conquer-they give Honda a truck for Honda owners-to keep them in the company-that's all.

      I used to be a Playboy reader (that's a lie: no one READS Playboy), but found the quality of the magazine (from the writing to the women to the paper) to be lacking. Playboy has been cutting costs because of continued losses on stands and on the Web.

      Does anyone really buy a car based on what Playboy says?

      #8. Settle down, dude. It's okay. By the way, not everyone is a commie or a fraud. Geez, it's a car list by PLAYBOY. Last time I checked, their forte wasn't cars.

      Oh my God! Old white men and young white chicks love the Escalade? Reading the posts here I assumed only rappers, basketball players and minority degenerates liked the car!!!!

      # 4 AutoBlog does absolutly the same..........the only thing autoblog wants to know if it is made by Ford, GM, DCX------which according to Autoblog and the Kerish fella are the best cars in the world, Consumer Report is owned by Japanese Communists, CAFE standards make USA more dependant, only women buy Honda's and Toyota's and the reason sales are down at GM and Fraud is because of the lies perpetrated by the liberal media, and my favorite accusing every government of giving Toyota's subsidies while absolutly refusing to admit that USA has a 25% tax on ALL imported Pick Up trucks.
