About the Road & Track Performance Car of the Year Award
Now in its 11th year, the Road & Track Performance Car of the Year is chosen based on four days of intense testing on the road and the racetrack. The Road & Track editorial team evaluates each car based on a combination of emotion, performance and value.
This year, testing consisted of two days spent lapping the 2-mile West course at Thunderhill Raceway in Willows, California, followed by two days tackling the back roads of northern California’s Napa Valley. To be considered for the competition, cars needed to be brand new or significantly revised for the 2024 model year.
