Everyone knows that two doors are cooler than four, so when you need a ride that makes a statement, there’s no doubt that you’ll be looking at the newest coupes on the market. Coupes seem to be a dying segment, as they’re not the most practical cars, but there were a bunch of significant updates to some popular coupes this year.
What’s New in Coupes for 2017?
The Porsche 718 Cayman and Cayman S are all new for 2017 and the sexy coupe now comes with a turbocharged four-cylinder engine. Not to worry, though, because the 718 Caymans are still some of the most capable, balanced, and fun sports cars on the market.
The Subaru and Toyota twins got small updates this year. The Toyota 86 (it’s not called the FR-S anymore), get a small boost in performance, changes to its design, suspension upgrades, and revised gear ratios. The Subaru BRZ, meanwhile, gets a slightly more aggressive style, better handling, more performance, and new convenience features.

In muscle car land, the Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 and 1LE are new and bringing the heat for this year, and the Dodge Challenger is now available with all-wheel drive.
The Honda Civic Si will be here soon as a sedan and a coupe, and the Infiniti Q60 is also here looking gorgeous.
The swoopy Lexus LC is finally here looking just like the concept car, and the BMW M2 has driving enthusiasts swooning over its fantastic performance. The Mercedes E-Class Coupe has arrived with all the latest technology and the entire Mercedes-AMG GT lineup has been refreshed with a new GT C model to slot in between the R and the S.
What’s Coming in Coupes?
The Nissan 370Z is getting really left behind, and we’re expecting a major overhaul soon, but, more importantly, we’re expecting the revived Toyota Supra to come out this year. Because the Hyundai Genesis coupe has been discontinued, Genesis as a standalone brand is sure to add a sporty and stylish RWD coupe to its lineup in the near future. Some big news we’re looking forward to is a refreshed Ford Mustang, which is rumored to ditch the V6 entirely and get a tweaked look. Dodge and SRT are going to revive the Demon nameplate to give us a Challenger that’s even crazier than the Hellcat.
