New cars have always been a way for companies to show off their automotive prowess. Some spawned the world’s most iconic cars, like when BMW introduced the EfficientDynamics which would become the i8, but others failed to materialize in production models, like the Devel Sixteen.
Auto shows are a great way for these new cars to make their debut. Several manufacturers have given us upcoming cars that excite and delight over the past two years. Additionally, some new models revealed that some companies have caved in to fan demands and brought back some favorite models, albeit in new forms. From Acura to Toyota, these upcoming cars really got us excited about the future!
ten 2024 Aston Martin Winner
Aston Martin took their Vanquish and increased their cool factor by 100! The new Aston Martin Vanquish 2024 features a mid-engined platform with a new hypercar-inspired look that takes this classic Aston Martin to a whole new level.
Teased at the 2019 Geneva Auto Show, Aston Martin is keen to give a facelift and some power tweaks to the flagship supercar Vanquish. Despite the estimated cost of $ 300,000, the Vanquish refresh got us excited about the future of the automotive industry!
9 Cadillac Celestiq 2024
The biggest sign of change came when Fiat announced that Dodge would produce electric vehicles. GM then decided that Cadillac would replace a gasoline-powered flagship in favor of the new Celestiq, an all-electric vehicle slated to debut in 2022 for release in the 2024 model year.
The Celestiq is further proof that electric vehicles are taking over as the primary type of vehicle. Joining the ranks of Tesla, the Cadillac Celestiq seeks to offer a luxury and quality rival for the electric vehicle market.
8 2023 Chevrolet Corvette Z06
Whenever a new Corvette is teased, the automotive world can’t help but stop and drool over what’s on display. The Z06 is no different. We’re excited about this ultra-high performance variant, delivering over 670 horsepower and Ferrari-like engine sounds.
Chevrolet makes big claims about its performance vehicle, but with the numbers we see, the Corvette Z06 could shatter even claims of under three seconds 0-60 and a quarter mile ten seconds. Better start saving now; starting price estimates are well north of $ 80,000.
seven 2022 Ferrari Purosangue SUV
Ferrari is finally making the leap into SUV territory like Lamborghini and Bentley. The Ferrari Purosangue is still heavily camouflaged, but we can’t wait to see what this high-performance SUV will look like compared to the Lamborghini Urus.
The Ferrari Purosangue could see a massive V12 engine in the flagship model. In addition, the Purosangue seems to seat four people and includes a rear infotainment system!
6 2022 GMC Hummer EV
Aggressively moving away from the gas-guzzling H1 era, the GMC Hummer EV seeks to develop 1,000 hp from a fully electric platform. Can GMC make the Hummer EV as popular as its predecessor? We certainly hope so.
Who would have thought the Hummer’s nameplate would be on an electric vehicle, but with a 0-60 in three seconds and all-wheel drive, plus a host of luxury features, the Hummer EV will be well worth the transition. Be prepared to shell out a lot of money; base models start at around $ 90,000.
5 2023 Hyundai RM20 N
Is it a Hyundai? Or is it a Genesis? At the moment, we don’t really know. We’re hoping it’s a $ 40,000 Hyundai instead of an $ 80,000 Genesis, and with leaky body styling, the RM20 N looks promising as a Hyundai model!
Seeking to enter the mid-engine segment, the Korean car brand is teasing a prototype that could really blow your mind! With a rated power of 390 horsepower, this Hyundai will be a premier vehicle. Plus, with the Elantra N, Kona N, Stinger, and Veloster N, it looks like Hyundai is loading up its lineup of performance vehicles!
4 Nissan Z 2023
Nissan has ditched the 370Z for the 2021 model year, and rear-wheel JDM sports car enthusiasts are hungry for information on the upcoming model looking to replace it. Nissan has been dropping hints of a new Model Z car for months now, and we’re super excited for the next gen!
Nissan Z fans are hoping the next-gen Z teased will take the 400Z title and come up with a range of upgrades from power and handling to luxury. If Nissan is to compete with the Supra, it will have to produce a truly special vehicle!
3 2022 Toyota GR Corolla
Toyota fans are unhappy with the exclusion of the GR Yaris from the US market, but Toyota is hoping to make up for the loss by introducing a GR Corolla. Claimed to have the same 258bhp three-cylinder turbo as the Yaris, the GR Corolla seems to impress.
More impressively still, the Toyota GR Corolla appears to have a manual gearbox and hatchback body style. Do we sense a rivalry with the Civic Si brew?
2 2024 Toyota MR2
JDM die-hards cried when the MR2 died out in 2007. Since its demise, gearboxes have been begging Toyota to revive the classic sports car.
The teased aggressive sports car could serve as a rebirth for the famous Toyota MR2. The new MR2 would be extra fast with an electric drivetrain, as instant torque graces the rear wheels. With the promise of such a revival, we can only be excited!
1 Acura IntÃ©gra 2023
Many years have passed since Acura had nameplates for its vehicles, but one thing excites us. The Integra is making a comeback! At least this time it’ll be a hot hatch instead of a sporty sedan, but it could be so much cooler than the first time around!
Seeking to fit the same engine as the Civic Si, the new Acura Integra will seek to fill the aging place of the ILX. We couldn’t be more excited to see what the refreshed Integra will look like on the streets once again.
Although they rarely go into production as they had imagined, concept cars represent the ultimate expression of automaker creativity.
