5 Brands That Need a Supercar
Supercars: you hang them up on your wall as a kid; you stare at them in the streets as an adult. But these cars are more than just a bunch of pretty faces— they signify success, both for the person driving it and the company that built it. While Lamborghini and Ferrari can pump out a new supercar like clockwork, it’s the mainstream brands that need a top-of-the-line halo car to show the world just what they can do. And these five automakers should do just that: Lexus When the Lexus LFA hit the scene in 2012, it was heralded as one of the greatest cars to ever come from the nearly forgotten marque. Since then, it’s launched a whole lineup of F performance vehicles that can go head-to-head with their German counterparts. But as Lexus’ F lineup grows, so does the need for a halo car. With the LFA officially off the market, the idea for another Lexus supercar is something that doesn’t sound all that crazy. Infiniti Infiniti, as of late, has had its share of success. The relatively new Q50 has done well, and the brand has received positive feedback overall on the many concepts that have debuted. One of those concepts was the Vision Gran Turismo pictured here. And while it was made specifically for the Gran Turismo video game, the design and performance of that car could signify a real-world possibility. Something much needed in the growing Infiniti lineup. Mazda When the Mazda Furia died, so did the dreams of a halo car in the Mazda lineup. Mazda has never had a supercar, but with growing success and a more composed lineup, a supercar — or more realistically an RX-7 successor — should be at least an idea for Mazda execs. Tesla
No matter which way you slice it, the Model S has been an ultimate success for Tesla. An SUV is already on the way, as is a more affordable sedan. But what’s next?
The idea of a Tesla supercar is something we’ve toyed around with before— as you can see from the concept pictured. But with all its technology and a brand new facility, Tesla could break into the electric supercar market and transform it for the better.
Despite its looks, the BMW i8 is not a supercar. It’s a very well done hybrid sports car. But with M engineers behind them, the i8 could transform from a mid-range sports car to a high-powered track monster. I think we’d all like to see that happen.
