In the market for something with two doors and tons of horsepower? Don’t go perusing the classifieds just yet. Companies like Acura, Ford, Alfa Romeo, and Tesla will each have something sporty to offer before 2022 – whether they be brand new vehicles, or updates of existing models. A number of these cars will have upwards of 1,000 horsepower (745 kilowatts), top speeds of over 200 miles per hour (321 kilometers per hour), and futuristic designs.
2019 Acura NSX Type RRumors of a hardcore Acura NSX have been long in the making. But reports suggest we could see the super coupe in a few weeks at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. It should have more power than the 573 horses (427 kilowatts) available on the NSX, and better aerodynamics, too.
We’ve already seen the new Shelby GT500 prototype on public roads. But we still don’t know when the muscle car will make its debut. Rumors point to a release date sometime in 2018, and underhood, a supercharged 5.2-liter V8 that’s good for more than 700 horsepower (521 kilowatts).2019 Porsche 911
Porsche has pretty much shown the 911 in full; recent spy photos previewed an uncovered version of the sports car on public roads. But we’re still some time away from an official debut. Reports suggest we could see the new 911 at the Paris Motor Show in October, with hybrid and performance variants to follow in 2019.
Toyota has been teasing its new Supra for nearly 10 years (the FT-HS concept debuted in 2007). But now it appears we’ll get our first look at the new sports car in a few months. A camouflaged prototype sprinted up the hill at Goodwood, meaning a fully uncovered car shouldn’t be that far off. Reports suggest it will come powered by both four- and six-cylinder engine options, and could have as much as 335 horsepower (250 kilowatts) on tap.2020 Alfa Romeo 6C
As part of FCA’s five-year strategy, Alfa Romeo will get a duo of new sports cars. The first will be the GTV, and the second will be a more-powerful 8C (which you’ll see later on this list). But Alfa could also add a third sports car to the mix; the new 6C could show up as early as this next year as a replacement to the 4C. It would wield a twin-turbocharged 2.9-liter V6 pushing out a healthy 505 horsepower (376 kilowatts).
The Alfa Romeo GTV won’t be as hardcore as the 8C you’ll see later on this list, but it will reportedly have more power than the 6C. Essentially a modified Giulia Quadrifoglio, reports suggest it could produce upwards of 600 horsepower (447 kilowatts) when it debuts late in 2019.2020 Aston Martin Vanquish
The thousand-horsepower Valkyrie is getting a mid-engined baby brother. Aston Martin is planning a new mid-engined sports car with an electronically boosted V8 and a classic name; Chief Creative Officer, Marek Reichmann, hinted that the company will revive the Vanquish nameplate.
Dyson – yes, Dyson – wants to get into the supercar game. The vacuum company’s CEO announced a £2 billion ($2.7B) into the project. The supercar will be fully electric and unique from anything else in the segment. Dyson said, “there’s no point in doing one that looks like everyone else’s.” Expect the supercar sometime late in 2019 or early 2020.
SUV aside, Lotus will continue to expand its sports car lineup with a new Elise in 2020. The company recently received a $2 billion investment from parent company Geely, with rumors that a new Elise could show up sometime in 2019, and would go on sale worldwide (including the U.S.) by 2020.
Maserati hasn’t fully updated the GranTurismo since 2011. But in 2020, we could see the luxury sports car get a new look, complete with a fresh platform and a more powerful engine. Details, though, are still slim
Arguably as anticipated as the new Toyota Supra, rumors suggest that a new Mazda RX-9 is on the way. Reports have hinted at the rotary-powered sports cars revival for nearly a decade, but now new we could see the super coupe in the sheet metal by 2019. The rendering here uses the RX-Vision concept as its base but borrows cues from the rest of the Mazda range.2020 McLaren BP23
With claims of being the “fastest McLaren ever,” the BP23 is a lot to look forward to. A spiritual successor to the F1 and P1, the BP23 (internal codename) will have a 1+2 seating arrangement – just like the F1 – and will have an output in excess of 1,000 horsepower (745 kilowatts). Expect to see it in 2019.
The current Nissan 370Z has grown long in tooth; the current model has been on the market since 2009. While Nissan hasn’t outright confirmed a successor, our rendering artists have imagined an all-new version for the year 2019 – and it looks sharp. Rumors suggest the new Z car could move to a Mercedes platform and could make its debut at next year’s Los Angeles Auto Show.2020 Opel GT
Opel has been relatively quiet these days, but in 2020 the company could introduce an all-new GT sports car. The coupe will draw cues from the lovely Insignia, but it’s still unclear what kind of power it might produce. This rendering imagines the sharp sports car in the sheet metal.
Formerly the Mission E, the new Porsche Taycan will make its debut early in 2019 for the 2020 model year. We know that it will borrow visual cues from the Mission E concept and other Porsche products before it, and will feature a fully electric powertrain. The Taycan will produce 600 horsepower (447 kilowatts) and will be able to sprint to 60 miles per hour (96 kilometers per hour) in under 3.5 seconds.2020 Tesla Roadster
Tesla says its next-gen Roadster will be “a proper weapon” when it goes on sale in 2020. Previewed by the stunning concept we saw back in November, the production Roadster should have some of the same specs. Expect a 620-mile range and the ability to sprint to 60 miles per hour (96 kilometers per hour) in less than two seconds.
The current Toyota 86 is one of the best affordable sports cars on the market today. But in 2021, the coupe could get a more-aggressive upgrade in the form of the concept pictured here. Under the hood, a new 2.4-liter engine will replace the current 2.0-liter boxer, with a horsepower figure in the neighborhood of 260 (194 kilowatts).2021 Honda S2000
Honda hasn’t confirmed a new S2000. In fact, the company has gone out of its way to deny its revival. But we won’t consider that a death blow yet; there have been plenty of rumors suggesting the return of the S2000. And even though Honda isn’t convinced the sporty convertible makes sense right now, there’s no telling what might happen in three years. Fingers crossed.2021 Porsche/Rimac Hypercar
Porsche now owns 10 percent of Croatian supercar maker Rimac. With that in mind, the two companies could team up for an all-electric supercar similar to the Taycan and Concept_Two. Imagined here as a mash-up between the two, the stunning coupe could have as much as 2,000 horsepower (1,491 kilowatts) with the ability to sprint to 60 miles per hour (96 kilometers per hour) in less than two seconds.2022 Alfa Romeo 8C
Slotted above the 6C, the 700-horsepower (521-kilowatts) Alfa Romeo 8C will make its debut either late in 2020 or early in 2021. It won’t go on sale, though, until at least 2022. The teaser proposes a sleek, streamlined coupe with signature Alfa cues.
