Acura NSX


It almost seems like the new Acura NSX has been one of the most anticipated cars for several years straight. But alas, the Japanese automaker doesn’t expect anymore delays this time around and it will finally arrive dealerships next year. This past year, Acura has been testing the NSX all around the U.S. with 573 horsepower and stunning good looks.

Alfa Romeo Giulia


It made its official debut at the 2015 L.A. Auto Show and there’s a lot to love about the Alfa Romeo Giulia, especially the Quadrifoglio model. Packing 505 hp and the claim of being the world’s fastest production sedan around the Nurburgring, the Italian automaker’s sedan will definitely be hunting some BMW M4s when it arrives late next year. Under the hood is a 2.9-liter twin-turbo V6 sourced from Ferrari and it will go zero to 60 in just 3.8 seconds.

Aston Martin DB11


It hasn’t officially bowed yet, but the Aston Martin DB11 will make its debut next year as a replacement for the DB9. As the first major product for the company’s Second Century Plan, we expect the British automaker to come out swinging. Rumor has it that Aston Martin is looking at a turbocharged engine from AMG, although many believe the company will stick to a 6.0-liter naturally aspirated V12 engine.

Bentley Bentayga


How can you not be excited to see the world’s most powerful, most expensive and most ridiculous SUV to start roaming your local streets? The Bentley Bentayga is a sign of things to come from luxury automakers, especially with the Lamborghini Urus also on the horizon. Sporting a 6.0-liter twin-turbo W12 engine with 600 hp, this opulent beast will go zero to 60 in four seconds flat.

When the BMW M2 was unveiled earlier this year, it showed that the German automaker means business for 2016. With 370 hp and 343 lb-ft of torque from a 3.0-liter turbocharged inline-six engine, the M2 will go from zero to 60 in 4.3 seconds and weighs 3,295 pounds. Best of all, it has a manual transmission, proving BMW hasn’t gone soft on us just yet.

Fiat 124 Spider


The Mazda Miata’s Italian cousin bowed at the 2015 L.A. Auto Show sporting a turbocharged motor with 160 hp and 184 lb-ft of torque. Sure, the styling is a bit divisive, but you’ll be able to judge for yourself when it arrives dealerships next summer. Both six-speed manual and automatic transmissions will be available and it will be interesting to see how Fiat decides to price its version of the Miata roadster.

Ford Focus RS


There’s a hot hatch coming with 350 hp and 350 lb-ft of torque and it’s a Ford. The Focus RS is powered by a 2.3-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder engine and is packed bumper to bumper with performance-minded goods including all-wheel drive and Brembo brakes. Pricing is rumored to start around $35,730 while buyers can choose to add a sunroof, navigation, 19-inch wheels and sticky Michelin tires.

Ford GT


When the Ford GT made its debut at the beginning of this year, jaws dropped at the 2015 Detroit Auto Show. Making a real statement with its return to the supercar segment, the new Ford GT is expected to have more than 600 hp while weighing a scant 2,890 lbs. With a 3.5-liter twin-turbo V6 powering the Ford GT, expect to see it at motorsports events worldwide next year and hopefully we’ll have the privilege of putting it to the test.

Jaguar F-Pace


Everyone loves crossovers right now, so it only makes sense that luxury automakers join the party. The Jaguar F-Pace will be available starting next year with a price tag of $43,385 and there’s a lot to love about the British automaker’s first crossover. At its initial launch, the entry-level model will feature a 3.0-liter supercharged V6 engine with 340 hp and 332 lb-ft of torque, although a four-cylinder diesel will join the lineup later on to lower the entry price to $41,995. Those that want even more power can opt for the same V6 but with 380 hp and 332 lb-ft of torque.

Volvo S90


Volvo finished off the year in style, introducing the new S90 sedan packed to the brim with style and tech. Powerplants include the Swedish automaker’s T8 and T6 engines, although specific power output for the sedan haven’t been announced. In the case of the T6, the supercharged and turbocharged four-cylinder engine should provide around 316 hp while the T8 hybrid powertrain delivers 400 hp and and 472 lb-ft of torque in the XC90. Expect more details to come on the luxury sedan when it makes its official public debut at the 2016 Detroit Auto Show.

    The Fiat 124 is the ONLY one I like out of that entire bunch, with the NSX a fairly distant second.

    Exactly who in the millionaire club is “anticipating” those cars?

  • johnnybgood

    Or the Jag or the Acura or the GT…! What is this, fantasy football!!! Whoever put this junior high list together needs to get their yuppy heads out of the poopers!

  • Demort71

    This list is a joke! Only a bunch of journalistic idiots would choose these high end imports. Mental masturbation at its finest if you are in junior high! How many Americans will be able to purchase these cars? Not many as compared to the population as a whole. Complete biased BS. No doubt millions will be special ordering the Acura, the Spider or the GT! Forget about the pricey Beamers. Alfas? Half of Americans have never heard of the brand. So very amusing!

  • JimmyDell

    That’s odd. You don’t sound amused……

  • niccolo

    sorry, no american mustang or corvette crap, this is high end cars not red neck.

  • Scott Wallis

    Tesla 3 anyone?

  • niccolo

    Remove all the turbo crap and there is not much engines worth driving. BMW has been using the same 3.0 Liter engine block from 135i to X5 35i and M4 too. Now they are putting that same hated engine in the M2 (with yet another tune and another mitsubishi scroll ?) that’s really taking customers for fools. Throw that turbo crap to the junkyard.
