Vaunted men's magazine Playboy knows that its readers are nearly as interested in cars as they are in the female anatomy... sorry, we thought we could write that with a straight face. Anyway, the buff-book does occasionally fill some of its spreads with sexy metal, to accent all the rest of the sexiness.

To wit, the magazine has unveiled its feature on the 2013 Cars of the Year. Without giving us much in the way of criteria for the awards, nor a clear framing of the categories ("Responsible Ride" is a particularly challenging concept, especially when you consider that the Mazdaspeed3 was the winner), Playboy has nevertheless highlighted what we assume to be it's favorite 12 or 13 (depending on how you count) cars from the 2013 model year.

Headlining the class is the Porsche 911, which Playboy writers single out for having "remarkable electronic voodoo." BMW M5 is named "Slickest Sports Sedan" though the Cadillac ATS then follows on because "we couldn't resist giving the new Caddy a shout-out." The rest of the picks are pretty conventional (save, perhaps, the Honda Fit EV as "Ace Electric"), even if the categories and methodology are fairly wonky. Cruise through or gallery for a taste or check out the full list, here. The site is safe for work, and you can legitimately (this time) say that you were reading it for the articles.

      Porsche 911....sexier with less "plastic" than most of the stuff in the magazine.

      Yes because an electric honda hatchback is much sexier than a ferrari 458 Italia spyder or a lambo aventador

      This isn't your grandfather's Playboy! Wait, uh, yes it is. Never mind.

      Mazdaspeed 3? For a responsible ride? Really? Focus ST was actually released this year as a new model, has better gas milage, better handling, and doesn't look like it's extremely happy to see something. It's also quite fast, fits 5 people comfortable, and has room in the trunk. What was Playboy thinking?

        Agreed. I don't understand the huge-chest craze. Why would you want your woman to look like she's about to spontaneously lactate, unless you're in to some sicko fetish about your mom.

      Fit EV and Mazdaspeed3. You've got to be kidding me. They probably put those in there to gage the readership, and see if it's actually read. How about Tesla Model S for EV? and BMW M135i for small car?

      Good call on the MS3. Mine is Celestial Blue, just like in the gallery. Those were '10 and '11 only, so an odd choice for the gallery of '13 cars.
