By that we are referring <em>Car and Driver </em>and the announcement of its annual 10Best vehicles for 2013. To be sure, it's an impressive selection of cars that combine heart-pounding performance and frugal sensibilities, but it also represents something of a broken record on the part of C/D. We're not so sure that's a flaw, though, as the resulting list is tough to argue with.<br /><br />Vehicles like the <a href=&quot;http://www.autoblog.com/ford/mustang/">Ford Mustang</a>, <a href=&quot;http://www.autoblog.com/porsche/boxster/">Porsche Boxster</a>, and <a href=&quot;http://www.autoblog.com/bmw/3+series/">BMW 3 Series</a> have maintained their high-horsepower spots on this list for several years now. Even on the more practical and nimble end, the <a href=&quot;http://www.autoblog.com/honda/accord/">Honda Accord</a>, <a href=&quot;http://www.autoblog.com/honda/fit/">Honda Fit</a> and <a href=&quot;http://www.autoblog.com/mazda/miata/">Mazda Miata</a> have not budged. These continued spots are even in light of redesigns for some vehicles such as the Accord, Boxster and 3 Series.<br /><br />In fact, the only newcomer to the 10Best list this year are the <a href=&quot;http://www.autoblog.com/scion/fr-s/">Scion FR-S</a>/<a href=&quot;http://www.autoblog.com/subaru/brz/">Subaru BRZ</a> twins, which knocked out the <a href=&quot;http://www.autoblog.com/cadillac/cts-v/">Cadillac CTS-V</a>. We think it would have been a huge misstep to have excluded the FR-S/BRZ, even in light of the supercharged Caddy's lamentable departure from 10Best.<br /><br />Without further ado, here are 2012 Car and Driver 10Best winners:<br /><ul>
