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.

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.
