2012 List: Every car I drove this year

Continuing my douchey humblebrag list of cars I’ve driven in the past year, here is my list for 2012. Same disclaimer applies:¬†some I drove for ten minutes, some for a week.

Up until just two-and-a-half years ago, the most powerful car I had ever driven had 315 horsepower (BMW M Coupe). Thanks to greater opportunities, and ever-soaring horsepower figures in this crazy age we live in, that number has been topped countless times in some unexpected ways. To put it in perspective, 9 out of the 11 Ford models in this list have 365hp of more.

    103!!! Of those, my envy meter maxes out on the 2007 Porsche 911 GT3 RS (997) and 1998 Porsche 911 Carrera S (993).

    Here’s where you tell me that they’re even more amazing than one can possibly imagine…
