Motor Trend's 2009 COTY award will be a tough one this year, with a number of very innovative cars that make great contenders. The G8 has an outside chance to win this one, but I'd say it's certainly not a lock-up. Some of the other candidates that have very good credentials are the Nissan GT-R, Acura TSX, and believe it or not, even the Honda Fit (for all those "green", environmentally conscious folks out there). If I had a vote, it would certainly go to the G8. Go Pontiac!
