There’s an allure behind sports cars that doesn’t exist in other markets. SUV, sedans, coupes, and pickup trucks, all have their niche buyer. This is also the case with sports cars. However, as years have passed, sports cars have become sexier, shinier, quicker, and in recent years, far more high-tech than their counterparts. With this in mind, there are certain companies that outshine the competition in the sports car marketplace. So, what exactly will sports cars in 2020 bring to the market? In short, more speed, enhanced technology, and greater capabilities.
The Top 2020 Sports Cars
Mustang, Porsche, Aston Martin, Tesla, Mazda, BMW, and other luxurious brands have jumped into the sports car market, and have led the way in recent years. This is still the case today. However, there are other brands, including Toyota, that have also crept onto our list.
Listed at around $50,000, this is a great daily commuter with all the bells and whistles you’d expect in a flashy sports car. It features:
- Well-balanced chassis
- 0-liter six-cylinder engine
- 335 hp
The manufacturer has partnered with BMW in designing the powertrain so owners can expect a smooth ride and seamless transitions on road. Rear-wheel drive and nearly perfect weight distribution, ensure owners the smoothest operation, control, and faster speeds. Wireless Apple Car play, Supra Connect, and a full-HD HUD system, round out the high-tech finishes buyers expect in this competitive marketplace today.
Aston Martin DB11
This well-known sports car features a V12 turbo engine, a high-performance AMR variant, Bang & Olufson Audio system, and more. With a 600 hp engine, no speed limit is a match for this vehicle. The interior features heated seats and steering wheel, refined leather interiors, a Mercedes-Benz infotainment center, 400-watt audio system, a passive entry system, and driver assist technologies, among other features.
The steep price tag of over $200,000, means it’s not a budget-friendly buy. However, those who want luxury, power, and the ability to go from 0 to 60 mph in under 5 seconds, look no further!
The 5.2-liter supercharged engine, 12-inch infotainment center with MyColor to match your gauges to your mood, launch control, and selectable drive modes, every sports car and racing enthusiast (or fan) will love the GT. Leather seating and paddle shifters, dual-zone temperature control, Ford Pass and Connect, MyKey, all-power interior, and more luxury than you’d expect from a Ford, are all present in the 2020 Shelby. It’s available in three different series/models and a price tag hovering at $70,000 plus, it’s an iconic option for those looking for their dream sports car.
Electric power meet 100% performance, intrigue, and spectacular finishes! This timepiece is a quintessential sports car, with a refined style, prestige, and powerful performance to back up the reputable name. The 5-door, all-electric fastback design offers:
- Polestar connect infotainment center
- Google services and speech recognition/capabilities
- 440-liter engine capacity
- Two motors
- Multiple color themes (Berlin, Shanghai, London)
The sports car is reasonably priced as well, starting around $63,000, which makes it far more affordable than others on our list. For the “green” driver, and those looking for power, prestige, and a name that’s synonymous with sports car glory, the Polestar is right up your alley.
As the archetype of sports cars, we couldn’t leave Porsche off the list. The car’s available in a luxury series and GT RS models. It features a 3.0-liter engine, 390 lbs of torque, and 440 hp. With a price tag ranging from $114,000 to over $130,000 for more luxurious models, drivers can expect a refined interior, and smooth exterior design. How about speed? The 911 can power up from 0-60 mph in under 3 seconds.
It also features driver assistance technology, seating for four, adaptive cruise control, lane assist departure, Bose audio, and a powerful infotainment center. For the sports car purist, Porsche has long been the leader in design and performance. And the 2020 Porsche 911 series options, don’t deter too far from that.
