Coca-Cola vs. Pepsi. The Hatfields vs. McCoys. M3 vs. RS4. These are the classic rivalries, and in the case of the BMW vs. Audi, I don’t think it will ever go away.

Road & Track has announced their winner and results from the 2015 Performance Car of the Year.
Winner: Porsche 911 GT3
The new F80 M3 was in the running.
“If, as some pundits charge, the M3′s become a German answer to the Pontiac Trans Am, this is surely Munich’s take on the rip-snorting, 400-cube, screaming-chicken variant used by the Bandit almost 40 years ago. It’s a muscle car par excellence, warping the trees around its head-up display with what feels like an unlimited reserve of force.”
