Episode 92: “An insider’s look at the contenders for Road and Track magazine’s 2023 Performance Car of the Year awards.”

In this episode, producer Phil Tower welcomes Mike Guy editor-in-chief of Road & Track . He was the founder and former editor-in-chief of The Drive. Prior to starting The Drive, Guy was the digital director of Maxim and an articles editor at Details. Mike also served as an editor and feature writer for Rolling Stone.

Mike joined Phil in this episode to talk about the process that Road and Track go through every year to select their annual Performance Car of the Year winner.
And trust us, there will be no surprises about their pick given the car’s sheer power and prowess.
The 2023 Performance Car of the Year is the 10th annual testing and ranking of Road and Track’s favorite new sports cars on the road. Mike reminded us that the typical life cycle of some performance cars is roughly 10 years. As an example, one of this year's performance car of the year contenders, the Lamborghini Huracán, is slated to close out its stellar 10-year run in 2024, For this year's selection of nominees they chose one of the last Huracán variants—the $300,000-plus Tecnica model.
Mike said the entire R&T staff flew in from around the country to gather at Monticello Motor Club in upstate New York.
His team spent a couple of days putting the car through the paces on the race track and then turned their attention to road performance. Mike noted that, unlike Michigan, the roads in upstate New York are pristinely maintained and are great for road testing vehicles that road and track magazine writers write about on a regular basis.

Mike said that ultimately, in choosing performance car of the year, it's not only numbers he and his team of writers are after but a “feeling” as well.
And the winner for R&T’s 2023 Performance Car of the Year… was the Ferrari from Bowling Green, Kentucky. You got that right… the Chevrolet Corvette Z06.
