The best drivers’ cars of 2019

By Alan Baxter, 20 Dec 2019 News

Porsche 911 GT2 RS

Our second annual special edition magazine looks back at all the best metal we’ve driven in 2019

Sometimes life gives you lemons. Sometimes it chucks you the keys to some of the most amazing cars on the planet and says to you: “Go on, maaaaate. Knock yourself out.”

Happens to us a lot at Wheels (not the lemons part) - and we’ve bottled our best hitouts of 2019 for you in our annual Best Drivers’ Cars mag, on sale now!

Strap in as we take you to some of the most challenging roads in stunning locations in Australia and overseas. Big cars or small, there’s one thing they all have in common: the sheer joy they bring when you have the time and place to let them do their thing.

Porsche 911 GT2 RS

Passionate for Porsche? Get a load of the ultimate 911 as we unleash the GT2 RS in Victoria’s High Country. We hit the roads of Scotland top-down in the 911 Speedster. At night. In November. In the rain. But who cares when the car’s this supreme and you don’t need to return it till dawn?

Porsche 911 Speedster

We hit the track in the Cayman GT4 and ask, when a car’s this good, do you really need a 911? Our 911 group test may help you answer that… And as we punch out quick, quiet kays in the Taycan, there’s another question on our mind: can Porsche’s first EV really embody the spirit of Stuttgart?

Tesla Model 3

But Taycan’s not the only electric show in town. We plant the pedal in the Tesla Model 3 and find there’s lots to like without it being loud.

It’s lightweight versus brute force as we pit the Alpine A110 against the BMW M2, and more M muscle's on display in a journey into the past in the M850i

McLaren 600LT

Great V8s? We’ve five of the best for you – who can mix it with the mighty McLaren 600LT? We head to Michigan for some mid-engined mayhem  in the Chevrolet Corvette C8, and there’s more free-breather fanging in our celebration of naturally aspirated donks.


We take AMG’s entry-level A35 hatch deep into the Swiss Alps to see if it lives up to the fabled badge, and go large in the Mercedes-AMG GT4. More seat-of-your-pants? Check out what the Kiwis are cooking up in the F1-inspired Rodin FZed.
