Dragon Drive recap: Can I review 6 cars in 100 words?

In a word, I’d describe the new Z as “playful.” It just pulls and pulls like a Golden Lab that can’t wait to get inside the dog park. (Photo courtesy of Grant Lewis Films)

I recently tested six new sports cars back-to-back on the breathtaking Tail of the Dragon. Can I review them all?

• 2023 Nissan Z: Feels like a RWD GT-R with a manual. Worth every bit of $50k.

• 2023 GR Supra: Serious pocket rocket that’s secretly a BMW M car.

• 2023 GR 86:  Lovechild of a Miata and a Camry. Get the manual.

• 2023 Ford Mustang: Surprisingly capable canyon carver. Don’t let its ubiquity fool you.

• 2023 AMG GLE 53: Stylish family hauler with attitude (and huge dealer discounts).

• 2023 Mazda MX-5: As simple and perfect as a hot Krispy Kreme donut.
