Sports cars continue to evolve as automakers strive to create the ultimate fun-to-drive machines. For 2016, options are plentiful no matter your budget.

What’s New in Sports Cars for 2016?

The latest addition to the sports car market is the Fiat 124 Spider that made its debut at the 2015 L.A. Auto Show. Essentially a Mazda MX-5 Miata with Italian styling, the Fiat 124 Spider might prove to be more attractive than its Japanese counterpart, thanks to a 1.4-liter MultiAir turbocharged engine with 160 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque.

Luxury shoppers will want to check out the new Ford GT or Lamborghini Huracan LP 580-2 with rear-wheel drive. There’s also the more hardcore BMW M4 GTS sporting 493 hp and 442 lb-ft of torque. bmw-m4-gts

The Acura NSX will also finally be available sporting a turbocharged hybrid powertrain with 573 hp while weighing 3,803 pounds.

If you’re in the market for a sedan, there’s the new Alfa Romeo Giulia that is available in a Quadrifoglio model sporting 505 hp.

What’s Coming in Sports Cars?

It’s been confirmed that a next-generation Subaru BRZ and Scion FR-S are in the works, so perhaps the automakers will use 2016 to debut a preview concept. We’re also hoping that the Civic Type R will finally make its U.S. debut and will live up to high expectations from Honda enthusiasts. Perhaps the biggest question is whether we’ll finally see the new Toyota Supra.

2016 Mercedes-Benz SLK300 Review

2016 Mercedes-Benz SLK300 Review
For 2016, Mercedes-Benz quietly introduced a new entry level version of the SLK roadster. Gone is the SLK250, now replaced by the SLK300. More than just a name change, the 2016 SLK features a new engine and new transmission.

2016 Porsche 911 Targa 4 GTS Review

2016 Porsche 911 Targa 4 GTS Review
Is the Targa the best overall body style for the 2016 Porsche 911? Our man Mike Schlee believes so. Even if that sounds crazy, we can all agree that the 4 GTS trim makes it even better.

2016 Lexus GS F Review

In its 25 years of existence, Lexus has built cars to rival the S-Class and 3 Series. So with the introduction of the GS F, has Toyota’s luxury division finally decided to take on the beastly BMW M5?

2015 Audi S3 Review

The 2015 Audi S3 is a compact high-performance luxury sedan, a lot of qualifiers for such a small car. Fortunately, it’s suitably quick.
