What is the Best Enthusiast Brand?

Me and the other two buffoons from the TopSpeed Podcast had a bit of an argument the other day. We were discussing what we each think has been the greatest enthusiast car maker. What auto company seems to do whatever they can, regardless of common sense, decency or money to create cool cars that we want, especially in the last 20 years or so?

Why don’t you guys take a second to chime in? Drop us a comment about what you think the best enthusiast brand is, and tell us why. I am working on my answer, and I will share it with everyone very soon, but I want to know what you guys have to say about it. I also want to see how many of you guys get it so obviously wrong.

Is it going to be Porsche or maybe Ferrari ? What about Dacia ?

Also, before you go too far. No, I am not going to pick Lancia . Top Gear already did that, and I still kinda think they are wrong.

You have your assignment. Now hit those comments!

Is your favorite brand a domestic company like Chevrolet? They do make things like the CTS-V wagon and the ZL1 Camaro. Lots of the European companies have a pretty strong showing. BMW has M division , AMG from Mercedes and the Audi RS line of cars are pretty great. But are there more of those than any other brand?

Porsche Cayman GTS

This is not the shortest or easiest decision to make, and I hope you guys don’t take it lightly.

Maybe you want to look to cheaper cars. Ford has the Fiesta and Focus ST, as well as cars like the Mustang and Raptor.
