2009 Pontiac G8 GXP

What it is: The Australian-built G8 already comes with a 361-hp V-8. Not enough? Then hold out for the G8 GXP, as it will get a version of the Corvette's 6.2-liter V-8 with 402 horses. Better yet, the GXP will be available with a six-speed manual transmission.

Why it's important: Pontiac's relatively affordable rear-drive performance sedan gets more power and a manual transmission, two big pluses in our book. A claimed 0-to-60 time of 4.7 seconds sounds pretty important, too.
