There's been no shortage of hot new metal this year. Here's my top ten...

1. Porsche 911 GT3

Despite the controversy surrounding its paddle shift-only gearbox, the GT3 completely blew me away. It was miles more civilized than I was expecting it to be, quite a bit faster than I thought it would be, and more exciting than ever to drive hard. Never before did £100k seem like such good value – but then the GT3 does just about everything you’d want from a sports car under one roof. I also happen to think it looks the absolute mutts nuts.
