Why hello there, SupraToyota GT 86 ($TBA). Aside from its oddball name — Toyota apparently is neither happy with its former sports car moniker nor familiar with the American meaning of "86'd" — the 2+2 looks quite intriguing, with a 2.0L boxer engine producing 197hp, either a six-speed manual or automatic transmission, 17-inch wheels standard, and rear wheel drive. Okay, so maybe it's more of a sporty Corolla than a true Supra replacement, but that doesn't mean we aren't still waiting on one.
Did someone build a time machine? The last few years have seen an American horsepower arms race the likes of which hasn't been seen since our fathers were kids, and the 2013 Ford Shelby GT500 ($TBA) is the latest salvo. Powered by a massive 5.8L supercharged V8, the GT500 boasts 650 horsepower and 600 lb. ft. of torque, making it the most powerful production V8 in the world and enabling speeds of over 200 mph. Other features include a carbon fiber driveshaft, a beefier clutch, transmission, and axle, Brembo brakes, a launch control system to keep that power flowing to the pavement, and Goodyear Eagle F1 SuperCar G: 2 tires. Your move, Chevy.
Forget trying to hunt down a used specimen in pristine condition — if you're looking to buy a DeLorean, why not wait to purchase an all-new model? The Electric DeLorean ($TBA) was developed by the DeLorean Motor Company of Texas in conjunction with electric car startup Epic EV, and will offer customers gas-free transportation in a new-build DeLorean beginning sometime in 2013. We could go on, but is that really necessary?
Forget the awful J-Lo commercials — as it turns out, there's a version of that tiny ride that's actually manly enough to drive. And it's name is the Fiat 500 Abarth ($TBA). Faithful to the "small but wicked" saying used to describe Karl Abarth's cars from the '60s, this racy model will sport an all-new 1.4L MultiAir Turbo engine, specially-tuned suspension and brake systems, upgraded technology on the inside, and far more aggressive looks on the outside.
Fill the horsepower hungry hole in your soul with the 2013 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 Convertible ($TBA). Based on the startlingly powerful coupe of the same designation, the ZL1 Convertible features a 6.2L LSA engine good for 580hp — and which makes the ZL1 the most powerful Chevy convertible ever — along with a handful of structural reinforcements to improve noise and vibration characteristics, Performance Traction Management, GM's highly-touted Magnetic Ride suspension, and a predictably mean, muscle car-of-the-future body.
