    I was disappointed that the Cadillac CTS was not in the running for this award. Cadillac has vastly improved their products, especially their interiors. Well here's hoping the Cadillac Alpha platform will make the World Car of the Year in the near future. Not that I'm biased or anything! :-)

    How in the WORLD did the GTR not make it onto the Performance Car list, but the stupid Civic R did?! Maybe it's model year driven, but this fact makes this whole thing laughable and invalid, IMO.

    Civic made the list for sports cars...but where is the Corvette, be it stock or the Blu-Devil?

  • Jim Posted: 2/26/2008 6:44pm PST

    The Nissan Skyline Coupe IS the GTR.

  • Gubbins Posted: 2/26/2008 7:09pm PST

    Sorry, but the Skyline in Japan IS the G37 coupe here in N. America.
    The Skyline name no longer applies to the GT-R. It's just...GT-R

    Not a Porsche selected among Best Performace Car?
    How can the first Green Car be left off. The Pirus started it all.
    Who was doing the selecting?

    Borger, the Cadillac CTS *is* among the finalists, as it should be. I also noticed that there's not a single Toyota or Honda in the bunch, and I noted as well that GM has 5 of the top 10 finalists for World Green car, whereas again Toyota and Honda are both absent, which is a refreshing change of pace.

    Nissan Altima is basically a Camry hybrid (badge engineering to the max), what are these judges thinking??? If Nissan wins, Toyota should get the credit, jeeeez!

    Wake up guys - This is for World Car of the Year for 2007.

    That means all-new cars introduced to their markets during calendar year 2007 - not the first quarter of 2008 (GTR & Z-06) or sometime earlier (Prius & anything Porsche)

    "In the other categories, the BMW 118d with Efficient Dynamics took home the World Green Car of the Year Award."

    I am EXTREMELY pleased that they recognized the MODERN DIESEL with its monumental fuel efficiency AND clean operation, and that in a car that is absolutely fun to drive and not a lil'old lady prius with its skinny tires and poor handling.

    Automakers selling cars in the US have a lot to learn on this subject.

  • Autonut Posted: 3/21/2008 9:38am PDT

    OK, few clafirications:

    ALTIMA IS NOT A CAMRY... Ghosn is going to have a heart attack...

    The reason a lot of cars are missing from the list is that they have to be new or extensively changed for the model year and have be to sold. The GTR didn't make the list because of the sales date. I believe the same is true of the corvettes.
