Audi S5, Audi R8, Porsche 911 GT3: Amongst Edmunds’ Most Wanted

Audi S5, Audi R8, Porsche 911 GT3
The Audi S5, the Audi R8 and the Porsche 911 GT3 have all been nominated for the Inside Line Most Wanted Award and checking the competition we are sure this will be an easy win for one of our covered models here. Our bet: the Audi R8 will win!

With its new S5, Audi has figured out that a coupe should be beautiful, not merely exclusive. Even as the typical German sedan has become a beast with swollen fenders and a massive grille, designed to bludgeon the meek out of the fast lane on the autobahn, the 2008 Audi S5 has a different look. Its curving contours are leaner, more expressive and more energetic.

Like anything that trades in fantasy, the 2008 Audi R8 invites you to dream about speed and style. It’s a showcase of modern automotive technology: 420-hp V8 with direct fuel injection; all-wheel drive; an elaborate space frame made from aluminum; and leading-edge aerodynamics. It sums up everything Audi knows about the automobile, and yet it’s different from any Audi we’ve ever driven.

Let’s cut right to the chase. The Porsche 911 GT3 is our favorite Porsche. It’s as if everything that Porsche has ever known about fast cars has been stuffed into this 911. Lightning reflexes, check. Sensuous sex on wheels, uh-huh. Neck-stretching cornering grip, you betcha. God-awful speed, abso-bloody-lutely.
