When we think about the current range of sportscars we have now in 2013, there’s a lot to work with. You’ve got the Scion FR-S and Subaru BRZ, the new Corvette Stingray, the Jaguar F-Type, the Nissan 370Z; the list goes on.
But we’ve only hit the tip of the iceberg. 2014 should bring with it a hoard of new sportscars both big and small. The fun, two-door formula is working now better than ever before, and these 6 beauties should be in showrooms sometime next year:
Following in the footsteps of Toyota, Nissan is planning a lightweight, rear-drive sportscar of its own. Not bearing a resemblance to the Esflow seen here (thankfully), the new Z car will carry a 4-cylinder engine and somewhere in the market of 200 horsepower.
If you’re a BMW fanboy, this is the car you’ve been waiting for. Replacing the outgoing BMW M3 coupe, the M4 will come with 430 horsepower, an inline-six, and yes, a manual transmission.
While the new Corvette Stingrays continue to sell like hotcakes, we still haven’t gotten word of a ZR1. But that’s ok, rumor has it it should come with 700+ horsepower. And that’s being modest.
The Subaru BRZ was and continues to be a smash hit. But for those of you looking for something a little hotter, the STI variant is the one to wait for.
Like the Mustang, the Chevrolet Camaro is scheduled to get a major overhaul sometime soon. We’re already seeing it now with the 2014 models, so don’t be surprised to see a lighter, nimbler Camaro near the end of next year.
And of course, we saved the best for last — the 2015 Ford Mustang. Getting its most revolutionary design change in years, enthusiasts are waiting with bated breath to see this pony in the flesh. We’ll see it in December when it hits the web in full.
