Did anyone read Speed/Car and Driver?

That magazine had a test of cars including a TRD Celica with exhaust and I guess the Sportivo suspension against a Nissan Spec V, Ford Focus SVT, Mazda Protege, Dodge Neon SRT-4, Lancer (the crappy one), and some other cars I believe. Guess who came out on top of an over all test including the usual (brake test, slalom/skidpad, 0-60, 1/4 mile, lap times, etc.)? The Celica ranked #1.

If I remember the Celica had the best lap times. Also they said it was the sportiest of the group what a sport car or sport compact car should be.

It's called Speed by Car and Driver. I don't think it's the new Car and Driver or could be, I don't know.
