9. BMW M4 – MSRP from estimated $60,000
The German automaker is making a huge leap as it launches the 4 Series lineup, the M4 being the most potent of the bunch. The new model comes with a lighter curb weight than the last M3 coupe, plus the return of the inline six-cylinder engine instead of the heavy V8. BMW designers used restraint when formulating the exterior of the car, but it has enough edge and subtlety to be menacing without being obnoxious.
