2014 Sports Car Buyers Guide

Share this Page

Performance, styling and price are the only points worth discussing when it comes to sports cars and very often it’s hard to find a vehicle that satisfies all three of those concerns. The sports car world is seeing a ton of new sheet metal in addition to new technology which will urge drivers to experience the limits of a high-performance machine.

What's New?

The iconic Ford Mustang has been restlyed for 2015. Once again featuring a turbocharged four-cylinder, this 2.3 liter unit will be good for in excess of 300 hp. The 3.7 liter V6 and 5.0 liter V8 remain, the later pumped up to deliver a bit more power.

The Jaguar F-Type is the successor to the gorgeous and iconic E-Type and looks the part with an eye-catching design. However, the F-Type isn’t just a good looking car - it’s fast too. Packing a supercharged V6, the F-Type is quick one and those looking for more power will find it with the available supercharged V8 engine option. It looks good, feels good and sounds even better.

Called the M4, BMW’s iconic M3 Coupe is given a new name, but the same sporting pedigree. Available once again with an straight-six cylinder engine, a turbocharger helps boost power up to 420 hp.

Higher up the food chain are the new models of the Porsche 911, like the Turbo and Turbo S. Both cars come with more power than the normal 911, and sport all-wheel drive and rear-wheel steering. The lack of a manual transmission may be disappointing but that’s the price of a 0-60 sprint of 3.2 seconds for the Turbo and 2.9 seconds for the Turbo S. There’s also a new GT3, which continues its theme of being a race car for the street, even going so far as to drop the manual transmission in favour of a 7-speed paddle-shifted dual-clutch unit. Rounding out the 911 range, a new Targa joins the ranks latter this year.

A car that’s easily as fast as the upcoming 911 Turbo is the 2015 Nissan GT-R. This year saw some slight revisions to ‘Godzilla’ while the a limited edition GT-R NISMO packing 600 hp has already set a blistering pace at the famed Nürburgring.

What’S Coming

Arriving soon will be not just a new sports car, but a new brand. Alfa Romeo is set to launch in the US in the near future with its 4C lightweight sports car, tipping the scales at somewhere around 2,500 lbs and using a turbocharged 1.8-liter engine. Alfa is also working on a second sports car that will ride atop the next-generation Mazda MX-5 platform, with both models set to arrive in 2015.

Chevrolet will be unveiling a super Corvette later this year, called the Corvette Z06. It will feature at least 620 hp, track ready tires and insane amounts of downforce. Lexus joins the sports car ranks next year with a new, 450 hp V8 RC-F.
