    And the 2013 EVO Car of the Year is... the Porsche 991 GT3 - EVO Car of the Year videos

    EVO really, really likes the Porsche 911 GT3. The 996 GT3 won back in 1999. The 996.2 facelift model won in 2003. The 997.2 GT3 RS won in 2007. The 997.2 GT3 RS won 2010. The 997 GT3 RS 4.0 won in 2011. What was the result in 2013? The new 991 GT3 took the crown. That makes for six car of the year victories for the Porsche 911 GT3 and more than any other model of any other vehicle. The GT3 even came in second place twice. It just flat out dominates.

    Yes, EVO loves the GT3 and for good reason. The new 991 version is even better and finally gets a dual clutch PDK transmission. Not to mention a 9000 rpm redline and 475 naturally aspirated horses from 3.8 liters.

    Additionally, the GT3 faced some very stout competition in the following:

    - Aston Martin V12 Vantage S
    - Audi R8 V10 Plus
    - Mercedes SLS Black Series
    - Alfa Romeo 4C
    - Ferrari F12 Berlinetta
    - Porsche Cayman S
    - Mini JCW GP

    Below you will find Parts 1 and 2 of the EVO Car of the Year Competition. Watch them and understand why the GT3 gets the glowing praise it does... and deserves.

    It's killing it and the funny thing is these are the naturally aspirated models...
