New Sports Cars Coming Out

In this new age of cars, the market seems to dominate around electric cars along with big SUVs. But what happened to the fun cars? The cars that you would take to the canyons for a little spirited driving? The cars that you would have hanging on your wall in your bedroom as a kid? Luckily for us car enthusiasts there are some manufacturers that are willing to keep that spirit alive.

Nissan Z A New Beginning
The new Nissan Z, or most known as the “400Z”. Most likely the most hyped car of this year would be the newly announced Nissan Z. The new affordable sports coupe that Nissan has kept true to. With a brand new drivetrain completely different from the last generation 370Z. The new Z is equipped with a 6 speed manual or a 7 speed auto with a RWD layout. Powered by a V6 3.0 litre twin turbocharged engine which has never been seen since the 300ZX back in the 1990s. Rumored to have nearly 400 horsepower from the factory, hence the ‘400Z’ nickname. The styling of the Z is heavily influenced by past Nissan Z’s. Such as the rear taillights taking inspiration from the 300ZX. The aggressive front end taking from the S30Z from the 1970s. The Z is reportedly priced at just under $35,000 for the base models, giving us an amazing bang for our buck.

Lexus IS500 Last Of Its Kind
Perhaps the last of its breed is the Lexus IS500. Quite possibly the final V8 found in a Lexus or any car for any matter, Lexus decided to give us what we love most. A luxury sedan with a rowdy naturally aspirated V8 through an 8 speed automatic. This car was given the ‘F Sport’ treatment by Lexus. With more aggressive body styling, stacked quad tip exhaust and a huge hood in order to fit the behemoth V8 in. Also lightweight 19 inch Enkei wheels if that wasn’t enough for you. Weighing in at just under 3,900 pounds, the 472 horsepower V8 helps the heavy beast from 0-60 clocking in at just 4.5 seconds. Not bad Lexus. The IS500 starting price is at $56,000 (est).

Nissan R35 GT-R T-Spec End Of the Line
The R35 generation of the Nissan GT-R is arguably the most influential car of this past generation. But unfortunately all good things must come to an end. First released in 2008, it was a fan favorite. Showing its potential as a tunable car that could destroy any car on the racetrack. Fast forward in 2021 the car is still in production with minor upgrades. This year, Nissan has decided to give us the ultimate GT-R. Named the ‘T-Spec’, this may be the final GT-R of the R35 generation. The T-Spec brings back the desirable ‘Midnight Purple’ and ‘Millenium Jade’ colors back. These colors are a nod to the famous R34 generation GT-R back in 1999 which featured these colors. The T-Spec includes full carbon ceramic brakes, carbon fiber spoiler, wider fenders and 20 inch lightweight RAYS wheels. The T-Spec will be only limited to 100 cars only to be sold in the Japanese market. This may be the ultimate R35.
