Sports cars continue to evolve as automakers strive to create the ultimate fun-to-drive machines. For 2017, options are plentiful no matter what your budget is.

What’s New in Sports Cars for 2017?

2017-Ford-GT-Yellow-10

The Ford GT will finally be hitting public roads, and this is the most highly anticipated new car in a while. While we’re still talking about higher-end sports cars, the Bugatti Chiron, Aston Martin DB11, LaFerrari Aperta, new McLaren Sport Series vehicles, and Lamborghini Aventador S have all arrived. Porsche has refreshed its entire 911 GTS lineup and its new 718 Cayman and Boxster models get new turbo four-cylinder engines.

The entire Mercedes-AMG GT lineup has been refreshed and the Alfa Romeo Giuila Quadrifoglio, Audi TT RS, Acura NSX (finally!), and Lexus LS500 are all joining the party this year. The Nissan GT-R has also been refreshed for 2017.

For enthusiasts with a smaller budget, the Mazda MX-5 Miata RF will soon be available, which gives the popular sports car a retractable fastback top for a coupe profile and more practicality. The Fiat 124 Spider also joins the fray as the Miata’s Italian cousin. The Subaru BRZ, WRX, STI, and Toyota 86 also got refreshed for this year.

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.

What’s Coming in Sports Cars?

SRT and Dodge are reviving the Demon nameplate to bring us a new Challenger that’s crazier than the Hellcat, and the Ford Mustang will be refreshed for the 2018 model year. The Honda Civic Si and Type R are so close to finally arriving, and the Type R especially has enthusiasts in a tizzy.

Honda Civic Type R Prototype-17

A Pagani Huayra Roadster and a Mercedes hypercar with 1,000 horsepower have been confirmed, and we’re sure Lamborghini will give us more special and high-performance models this year.

Perhaps the biggest question is whether we’ll finally see the new Toyota Supra, a new BMW Z5, and a mid-engine Corvette debut for 2018. A new BMW M5, Audi RS 5, and Mustang Mach 1 are also in the pipeline. Hyundai’s N performance brand will debut its first car this year and a new higher-performance Corvette (ZL1?) variant and a new Porsche GT2 are also expected.
