Spoiler alert: If you haven't picked up your print copy of Car and Driver yet, or if you haven't received their email announcement, or if you haven't checked out their website, they just announced their 10 Best for 2009. We wanted to share it with you because, well, the list is too shocking not to share. Unfathomably, the Nissan GT-R didn't win a spot! It didn't even make it into the top ten. After taking the brass ring from Automobile and Motor Trend, how could CD not pick it? We were just as shocked as you are undoubtedly. This would be like only the second loss evah for Godzilla, and the first was in a brief skirmish with Mothra about 40 years ago.
Okay, we're kidding. We saw this one coming a mile away. C and D always has a price cap on their nominees and this year that meant the Nissan officially missed inclusion by about seven grand. Now that you've adjusted, we can tell you that the full list can be found by clicking the source link below, but know that there are 8 foreign cars on the list and 2 domestics. Three Germans made the list, along with four Japanese models and a lone Brit. The list is actually a solid one from top to bottom. You'll probably have a hard time disagreeing with the choices, but might think your favorite is missing. Let us know what replacements you'd make.
