These are the best-of-the-best, combining first-class luxury and other-worldly performance into a single unforgettable vehicle—and for the drivers lucky enough to own these four-wheeled monuments of engineering and design, they offer driving experiences that are second to none.Automakers are constantly pushing the envelope when it comes to the next generation of supercars, creating something of an arms race between the best car companies on the planet. And that’s a very good thing indeed for automotive enthusiasts, since it means the next great supercar is always just around the corner.If you’re among the wealthy elite and fancy yourself an automotive enthusiast, definitely keep an eye on the horizon for these upcoming supercars.
The McLaren renaissance started in 2009 with the introduction of the 12C and the “Super Series” models, and it’s slated to reach mass hysteria in 2017 with the release of the P14. As the replacement to the 650S, next year’s P14 will be in a league of its own when it eventually makes the leap from the test track to the open road. Car and Driver reports that the McLaren P14 will be powered by a retuned version of the proven 3.8-liter twin-turbocharged V8, and that the aggressive-looking supercar is expected to top 680 horsepower when final specs are released.
The limited edition 2017 GT is the culmination of over a century of automotive passion and excellence, representing the most technologically innovative car Ford has ever built. The Ford GT was designed to dominate on the track, turn heads on the road, and provide the ultimate driving experience. Ford is expected to manufacture just 1,000 GT models, already making it one of the rarest and most highly sought after supercars.
GM has been teasing a mid-engine Corvette for half a century, and it looks like driving enthusiasts will finally get what they’ve been asking for in 2017 with the Zora ZR1 C8. Moving the mass of the engine closer to the rear tires will improve the Corvette’s acceleration and braking, and it also allows Chevy designers to update the Corvette’s iconic (but albeit dated) visual appeal. The ZR1 is expected to be a low volume production, so try to get your hands on one now before you have to wait even longer to experience the mid-engine Corvette you’ve been dreaming of.
Porsche has reportedly been investigating a new mid-engine supercar since 2011, and all signs point to the 960 being that car. Not a lot is known about the 960, except of course that it’s one of the most highly anticipated cars Porsche has ever designed. Motor Authority says that the 960 is expected to arrive in 2019 and should generate 650+ horsepower from a 3.9-liter, turbocharged flat-8 engine. Maxim is dreaming a little bigger, speculating that the 960 could employ twin versions of the Boxster S’s 2.5-liter engine making a 700-horsepower 5.0-liter turbo eight.
What do you get when you take a Maserati sports car, make it lighter, and give it a lower center of gravity? The next high-performance Maserati supercar, of course. The Alfieri is slated as a challenger to the performance compact “2+2” throne currently held by the Porsche 911. The Alfieri is rumored to have a 520-horsepower twin-turbo V6 under the hood. If that’s not enough to make the discerning automotive enthusiast salivate, just get a look at these stunning concept images to understand why critics and drivers alike are already hailing the Alfieri as one of the most strikingly beautiful sports cars of the (not-so-distant) future.
Got a couple extra million in the bank? Good news, you can own the world’s fasted production car. The Bugatti Chiron is a 1,500-horsepower shock-and-awe campaign. Stuffed inside the beautifully designed, Le Mans-inspired Chiron is a quad-turbo (that’s four turbos if you’re counting) 8.0-liter W-16. The second set of turbochargers don’t even come online until 3,800 RPM, which means drivers are in for a mule kick of power even after their hearts sink in their chest with the initial blast of raw, unfettered horsepower. The Chiron is reported to reach 62 mph in 2.5 seconds, and even with a price tag of $2.6 million the limited run of vehicles isn’t expected to last much longer.
