Luxury athletes from Mercedes and Aston Martin in front

In the 2009 readers' poll, the Porsche 911 still put on the sports car crown, but in 2010 the voting share of 20.7 percent was enough for Porsche only for third place.

Far behind are the sports models from Aston Martin (DB9 /DBS: 4.3 percent), BMW 6 series (4.2 percent) and Audi TT (4.1 percent). Even the new athletes, like the Ferrari 458 Italia or Nissan GT-R, the readers can not inspire.

The Ferrari can with a wafer-thin lead of 0.1 percentage points 458 Italia position itself between the British luxury athletes.
