The January issue of Playboy features the monthly men's magazine's 2006 Cars of the Year, the grand prize winner of which is the Porsche Cayman S. The new coupe from Porsche was chosen for being the answer to every man's dream… well, at least one dream, which is a Porsche for a 911 fan on a budget. While the quoted price of $58,900 means you'll be brown baggin' it for a little longer than you thought, the Cayman S is the closest thing Porsche has got to an economy car at the moment.

The entire list of 2006 Cars of the Year was compiled by Playboy's driving team headed up by Ken Gross, former Director of the Petersen Automotive Museum in L.A. and automotive journalist extraordinaire. Keep livin' the life, Ken!
